KABIRA International School won the annual Rainbow International School swimming gala for a record fourth time last weekend at Kansanga recently.
The Bukoto-based school beat seven international schools to retain their crown for a fourth year running. Kabira ended the one-day gala with 620 points, closely followed by International School of Uganda (ISU) who garned 586 points.
The hosts Rainbow International School finished with 418 points.
Heather Oliver, the head of PE/Swimming at Kabira, said all participants did their best. Oliver said Kabiraâ€™s continued success was mainly due to the enormous commitment of the team as a whole, from those swimming in the individual events to those swimming in the relays. A real team effort and a great team spirit!
Other schools that participated included Heritage, Greenhill Academy, Rainbow and Taibah School.
Soweto quartet due
The Soweto String Quartet (SSQ) are slated to perform in Kampala come Friday April 8. The organisers of this concert are Bullseye! Creative and Vantage Communications.
The proceeds from the concert are going to benefit Uganda Heart Foundation.
SSQ have been here before and have filled up the Rwenzori Ballroom. In their sojourn here they managed to raise at least sh30m for the Uganda Society for Disabled Children (USDC). Their hit song Imbube ruled the airwaves for some time, so much that utl Mango has it as a signature tune for their branding.
The SSQ emerged during the 80â€™s around the nucleus of the three Khamese brothers, violinists Sandile and Thami and cellist, Reuben.
