On Saturday, members visited the school and had a sports day with the children of the upper classes that included netball, football, sack races and several others.

Children of St. Francis Primary School Bulindo in Kira sub-county will now play their netball in properly marked netball kit, new balls and with a pair of metallic goals after the Rotary Club of Najjera’s commitment to improve the welfare and give the school a facelift.

On Saturday, members visited the school and had a sports day with the children of the upper classes that included netball, football, sack races and several others.

This, according to Daniel Ajuwa Odong, the president of the Rotary Club of Najjera was intended to acquaint themselves with the pupils and show them that they are loved and that outside there, there are people who care about them.

“Today’s sports day is also a fundraiser to get funds to make this school better. Following my installation last year we decided to adopt St. Francis Primary School Bulindo.  Among the things we pledge to do is to improve the livelihood of the children of that school,” Odong said.

He said they also intend to refurbish the school’s dilapidated classroom blocks and also improve the sanitation of the school, starting with the building of two water-borne toilets for the boys, girls and staff of the school which will cost close to sh60m in the phased refurbishment.

“The school is just a few kilometers from the City Centre but in a very dire state, the classrooms are in bad shape; you find two classes in one classroom rooms housed in a single room facing different directions as they study.

“Today we start this mission, it is going to be on for a while as we stick with the children and we call on the general public to come and support this cause; these are our children, this is the future of Uganda, let us make their welfare and livelihood and create a learning environment that is suitable for them so that they can become useful citizens,” Odong requested.

In some of the games played on the day, the school’s girls’ team won the netball exhibition match 5-2 while the football team game ended 3-3.
