At the careers’ day, students met experts, parents, educationists and organisations; all of whom gave the girls words of wisdom as they make career decisions.

Several organisations, officials and parents streamed into Nabisunsa Girls School along Jinja Road at the recent annual careers’ day.

At the careers’ day, students met experts, parents, educationists and organisations; all of whom gave the girls words of wisdom as they make career decisions.  

All the presentations resonated with the call from the school headteacher, Aisha Lubega, “Make right choices in choosing careers”.

During her speech, Lubega reminded the students they were lucky to given that it in the past, it was unusual for students to be guided on how to career choices. “Some of us never had this chance, utilise it well,” she repeatedly told the students.

Nabisunsa, an all-girls school, located in Kampala, along Jinja Road is one of the best performing schools in the country.

 

At the annual event held at the school premises, there were several organisations that exhibited different career choices. These included architecture, banks, art and craft and foods.

One of the exhibitors Claire Kamazimba, who heads Makerere University’s Food and Nutrition department, took students through assessments for the right food they should eat.

Rebecca Mpagi, the Director of Women Affairs in the UPDF, also attended the event. She encouraged the girls to also join the forces.  “The UPDF recruitments have always registered low numbers of girls because of the false information they hear about Uganda’s army.”

She added that: “At times some people think that this Force is for uneducated people, which is false. It is the reason for attending the careers’ day to inspire more girls in the army.”

 

Mpagi also assured women of safety and benefits of employment and protection while in service, and encouraged them to join in big numbers.

The UNDP programme associate and countryside director, Josephine Nansubuga, encouraged the students to work hard in whichever course they chose.

She added that students need to work to the success of the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) by 2040. Nansubuga also noted that the initiatives are important because 70% of Uganda’s population are youth.

Tamira Mayanja, an artist, who is an old student of the school, cautioned the Nabisunsa students on taking their studies seriously.

Students were also cautioned about keeping the school’s standard and to always strive to become important people in the future.

Tracy Mugisha, a student of Nabisunsa Girls School, says, “These exhibitions are always exciting since they always guide us on the best career choices.”

“To have a good life, you have to work hard and read a lot to stay updated. Learn from what is happening around society,” says Lynder Alija, another student in Senior Five.
