THE Bishop of Busoga Diocese, Rt. Rev. Dr. Michael Kyomya, has called for the involvement of parents in free education programmes. “The all-round education of children is supposed to be a partnership involving parents,” he said.

Kyomya said children are a gift from God and that it was the responsibility of parents to look after them. He urged parents to guide their children so as to enable them to achieve their dreams.

The bishop made the remarks while confirming 67 students of St. John S.S. Buwaaya in Mayuge district recently. He laid a foundation stone at the school’s main hall which is still under construction.

Komya also toured the school computer lab and listened to the students who explained concepts, including global warming, to him.

The Rt. Rev. Sam Egesa, the diocesan secretary, urged students to put God first in whatever they do, which he said was in line with the national motto “For God and my Country”.

Daniel Bazira, the head teacher, thanked the residents for contributing towards the construction of the first block, before the school started getting funding from the Government.

“These people organised themselves and put up this classroom block, while their area MP provided the iron sheets,” he said.
