PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni last week handed over a sh1.5m cheque to Jonans Tusiimire, the first student at Ntare School to score four As at the advanced level examinations.
Tusiimire, now a student at Makerere University completed his A’Level in 2001. Julius Amumpe who got three As and a C was also honoured.
The Ntare School Old Boys Association (NSOBA) chairman, Prof. Ephraim Kamuntu said the association donated the prize money and will always give similar presents to whoever gets the same scores at Ntare.
“Any student(s) who score aggregate eight in the best eight subjects at O’ Level and puts Ntare his first choice will always be given a scholarship to study A’ Level for free,” Kamuntu said at the NSOBA reunion ceremony recently.
At the function, Museveni commissioned the sh428m two-story Critchton Memorial Communication Centre, a sh390m Parent and Teachers’ Association millennium block and laid a foundation stone for a two-story cultural and performance centre at Ntare School. The communication centre has 26 computers connected to the Internet.
The two centres were supposed to be opened by Museveni and his Rwandan counterpart Paul Kagame.
Kagame was represented by his local government minister, Protais Musoni who led a 27-man delegation of Ntare School OBs from Rwanda.
The President invited both old boys and the current students of Ntare School to his home in Rwakitura in Mbarara for the forthcoming Christmas season.
