Parent-Teacher Conference

By

The Parent teacher conferences at Kabojja are always a much anticipated event for all the stake holders. The teachers are eager to meet with the parents and discuss the welfare, challenges and way forward in regards to the learners’ academic and pastoral wellbeing in school.

The turn up to the October 28th Parent – Teacher conference was very good and we are grateful to those parents that made the effort especially those who are not resident in Uganda.

The Parents were able to meet with each individual subject teacher of their children and discuss in depth the challenges that the learners were facing academically and otherwise.

This parent teacher conference was very interactive since the parents came in with their children at their convenience and had ample time to discuss with the teachers, tutors, wardens for the boarding learners and administration.

The feedback from the sessions with the parents was discussed in a general meeting with the staff and Administration.

FIELD TRIPS

STAFF TRAINING WORKSHOPS AT KABOJJA INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL

By Marie Jundah Matsiko

Editor-in-Chief

During the Summer Holidays, teachers at KIS get the opportunity to attend various training workshops and refresher programs. These workshops are not only intended to improve the performance and competence of staff, but most importantly, they are meant to impart self-improvement/development skills. These training workshops have inculcated great insight into members of staff as well as moulding them into holistic and productive citizens beyond the school environment.

These just concluded summer holidays (August 15 – 17, 2017), we had the privilege of meeting, learning from and sharing with a renowned facilitator, a great motivational speaker: Ethan Mussolini – The Merchant of Success! Ethan and his team instilled in us life-changing lessons:

i.          Discovering One’s Purpose, that is working within the realm of one’s purpose to produce excellent results

ii.        Leaving an exemplary legacy

iii.      The importance of documentation

iv.      Setting a personal mission

v.        Techniques for winning mindsets: Respect for others, passion for work, focus on minors

vi.      Dropping the defense mechanism and excuse vice

vii.    Managing time

viii.  Supporting others to grow, hence growing

ix.      The Principles of Excellence, Urgency, Professionalism and Ownership, and

x.        Constant innovation, finding something to improve daily

 

Three key activities particularly wowed and drew the teachers’ interest;

1.      Mussorobics

Besides being an exceptional speaker, Ethan Mussolini is an apt and fit instructor. The training sessions were intertwined with Aerobics that he termed Mussorobics, comprising a number of different dance-like exercises with the goal of dropping the member guard, loosening up, creating a conducive environment for study.

2.      Putting Pieces Together Activity

By putting cut pieces of cards together to make complete cards, members of staff learnt many lessons ranging from Patience, Team work, Exchanging what you have for what you want to the importance of completing tasks.

3.      Forks and Bottles Activity

This activity taught us that learning does not end, so the teacher is not a know-it-all. We also saw the importance of effective communication and making all things possible as long as there is a good working environment.

 

On the whole, these workshops help in rejuvenating the mind and body of the staff members, preparing them for new academic year. It is indeed a great opportunity that makes one a teacher, but also an indispensable one. All this is curtsey of our mindful and selfless Directors, who see the value of investing greatly in workshop trainings.

Work experience 2017

It is a pleasure to inform you about the students Internship exercise for 2017 that ended on Friday 4th August 2017.  This is an annual school event specifically for students of Year 11 & 12 where they are placed in different organizations that offer services in line with their future career.  Several learners of year 11 & 12 learners were placed in different fields of Medical, Engineering, Law, Fashion and Design, Accounting and Finance, Management, among others.   Working in these various fields gives an opportunity to our learners to work closely with a professional in that aspect. 

According to learners’ reports, they all had a fulfilling work experience. They are particularly appreciative for the exposure and hands-on learning experience. This to them was interesting meanwhile some learners found it quite challenging.  They were able to make informed decisions about their career choices. In that respect, some learners decided to build on their earlier career paths, while others decided to have their earlier career choices changed after getting exposed to what their careers involve; in terms of daily routines, nature of work done, preparation and expertise required.

On this note, the members of careers office invited the concerned parents for a discussion with their learners. We are happy to inform you that this meeting was fruitful as learners’ concerns were considered and they were guided into their preferred careers.  This is the ultimate purpose of internship. 

 

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the following organizations for the opportunity they gave our learners to undergo this very important training; May Medical Centre, International Medical Centre, Pearl FM-Kampala, Mukwaya General Hospital, International Hospital Kampala, Updeal Construction Company, Design Group Associates Kampala, Silk Events, Isbat University, Hot 100 Fm, Cassia Lodge Kampala, UAP Insurance, Footstep Furniture, Hot loaf Bakery, Uniserv education consult, among others.  We hope to continue working with you as we develop each of our learners’ full potential.

Kabojja Great Debaters in Greece

By

Greetings from The Great Debaters Desk!

It is an honor to report to you all that the Gallant Great Debaters of Kabojja represented the school in the World Scholar’s Cup – Global Round in Athens, Greece from July 18 – 23, 2017; where they participated, excelled and qualified for the final round in November, 2017 – The Tournament of Champions at the Yale University in the U.S! 
Six students: Betty Gisilla, Keith Mukunya, Matilda Mwebeiha, Beza Gisilla, Lauryn Mwebesa and Trevor Mwebesa; along with their Debate Coach – Ms Marie, embarked on a 10-day trip to Greece to compete with other debaters from all over the world.


We spent a night in UAE and had a 2-hour tour around Dubai, where we visited some of the most eye-catching and breath-taking buildings and landmarks. Upon reaching Athens, the team spent two sleepless nights reading, researching and mock-debating, and by the time they faced their opponents, they were ready and simply sailed through to victory. The Debate team returned home with various honorary gold and silver medals; but above all, scooped certificates and qualified for the Tournament of Champions.


We also had the chance to visit some of Greece’s major sites, such as, Monastiraki Market, Acropolis Museum, Aegina Archeological Museum on Aegina Island, the home of Pheidippides – the Marathon man, and many more. This whole trip, the experience was a great and educative adventure; it was simply legendary!
My most sincere appreciation and acknowledgement go to:

·         The World Scholar’s Team, for providing us with a platform for global participation and excellenceü

·         The Great Debaters Organizing Committee especially my colleague Mr. Vincent Okotel and Debate Club President Hussain Bharmal; for your resilience and selfless input,

·         Our noble parents of the debate students for the support and trust you accorded us with your children,

·         The school administration for the drive, encouragement and standing by us all through,

·         The Directors for the invaluable support, parental guardianship and granting us the opportunity to make KIS shine on a global scale. And all of you, who prayed for and wished us well

 

 

God bless you all
