NABBINGO - The project of Trinity Junior School, the proposed feeder school and 75th anniversary monument of Trinity College Nabbingo, has received a boost of sh260m.
The money was pledged and collected during the school’s fundraising platinum dinner dance at the Imperial Royale Hotel on Saturday.
The president of the school’s Old Girls Association (TCNOGA), Christine Ikiria Sepuya, said the project of Trinity Junior School was conceived by the Old Girls, who are also managing it.
“As Old Girls, we felt obliged to give back to our school as we prepare to celebrate its 75th anniversary,” she said.
“The project requires sh7bn. We have already acquired land in Nabbingo. We are also done with the architectural designs.
“Further to being the monument for the platinum jubilee, Trinity Junior School will also serve as the feeder school for Trinity College Nabbingo.”

Alumnus Veronicah Namagembe, the MD of Pride Microfinance Limited, who was the Guest of Honour, asked the alumni to donate generously towards the project.
“Trinity College Nabbingo is our alma mater. It made us the important people that we are. This is our time to give back to it,” she said.
The Chairman of the School’s Board of Governors, Fr. Dr. Cornelius Ssempala also challenged the alumni and stakeholders of the school to be more supportive to the school’s development projects.
He reasoned that giving charity, or contributing towards noble causes, makes a person joyful, more human and more fulfilled.
