Visit from Kamwokya

Our Lady’s was delighted to play host today to Mr Francis Mbazira, Director and Founder of the Kamwokya Christian Caring Community in Uganda.

Mr Mbazira and a fellow worker from Kamwokya, were accompanied by Mr Ian Menzies, School Coordinator for SCIAF. They were in Scotland to visit the four schools which are partnered with Kamwokya: Our Lady’s, Taylor High, Braidhurst High and All Saints in Glasgow.

During the day, our visitors took part in assemblies for 1st and 2nd year pupils. The assemblies featured European and Jambo music form the choir, a performance by the African drumming troupe and a slide show from Mr Mulrooney and Mrs Glover about their visit to Kamwokya. Mr Mbazira and Mr Menzies also took the opportunity to talk about Kamwokya and explain to pupils just how important their fundraising is for the community.

They also had a chance to see Citizenship education in action through a 3rd year Geography class with Mr Krawczyk, and a Higher Modern Studies class with Mrs McManus.
