Our Secondary School Official Opening Ceremony!

At School for Life we believe it takes community to build a community and last Wednesday, 21st of June our Ugandan and Australian communities came together to celebrate the official opening of our Secondary school in Mbazzi.

Attended by nearly 1000 supporters, it was a day full of laughter, happiness, tears and lots of dancing with performances from our students, teachers and construction workers.

Our students have been practising their performances for months and had every one up and dancing too!

Proud mothers, dressed in their finest attire to support the opening and enjoyed the festivities.

The school was officially opened by the Honourable Amelia Kyambadde, Minister of Trade, Industry & Cooperatives,here with our Uganda Country Director, Angela, our CEO, Annabelle and Director of Studies, Janepher.

 Sponsors, friends and family from Australia, including our Mt Kilimanjaro team who collectively fundraised over $140,000 and trekked Mt Kilimanjaro before attending the opening.

Our incredible team have completed the construction of our Secondary School in just 12 months. This amazing, 16 classroom school, alongside our primary schools will allow us to provide quality education to 1600 students and impact over 5000 lives within our communities through initiatives such as community outreach programs, vocational training, employment opportunities and access to clean water and health clinics.

In January 2018, our first Primary graduates will come to Secondary School for the first time. We will also enroll additional students from other Primary Schools in the local area. We are beyond excited to welcome the next chapter of education for these students!

Thank you to all of our loyal supporters for your generous donations. We couldn’t have done this without you.  You are helping to change the lives of thousands of Ugandans through the gift of quality education - thank you.
