ENTEBBE - A German group and St Mary's African Mission American have built two dormitories at St Denis Primary School and Vocation School at Nkumba, Entebbe.  
 
Two dormitories, one to accomodate over girls at St Dennis primary school and another for boys at St Denis Vocational training Centre, Nkumba.
 
The dormitories were unveiled by chancellor of Kampala Archdiocese, Fr Joseph Mary Ssebunnya on Saturday June 17.
 
According to Fr Francis Ssengendo, director of St Denis Vocational and Primary School, the Germans and America's St Mary's African Missions built the two dormitories to pupils of St Denis primary schools and students of St Denis Vocational institute Nkumba.  
 
"Each dormitory for primary and vocational has costs sh70m, full equipped with mattresses and beds, occupants only come with bed-sheets and books," he said.     
 
Ssengendo believes that vocational training is not growing because parents do not encourage their children.
 
"Some parents do not believe in vocational education, but if we have an initiative that allows the young people to appreciate vocational studies at a tender age, we would have groomed movers of this nation," he said
 
He added that in vocational institutes can encourage children to do something meaningful if even drop out of school and can become very productive. 
 
He revealed that some parents think that when pupils fail secondary and primary examinations can't do anything which not true at all,  vocational the skills can help children to earn a living, and at the same time bond with their parents.
