"Our former schools made us what we are. We thus have the responsibility to keep in touch with them and also participate in their development programmes. Let us not have that pathetic thinking that it is the government that must help us."

Ssebukyu made these remarks during the celebrations for the Patron Saint's Day of St. John's Seniour Secondary School Nandere, in Luweero district, on Sunday. He was the guest of honour during the function.

Ssebukyu asked the Catholic Church to partner with government to eradicate the culture of absenteeism, which he said had stifled the delivery of quality education.

He later commended the Board and Management of Nandere SSS, for registering steady growth in academics, discipline and physical infrastructure.

The head teacher of the school, Fr. Robert Mayega asked for more government assistance to enable the school to improve on its infrastructure and general staff welfare.
