MUKONO - The Retired Archbishop of Church of Uganda, Henry Luke Orombi has commended the directors and teaching staff members of Seroma Christian High School, Mukono, for upholding the Christian values upon which the school was founded.
"This school is prospering because of the presence of God. There is so much prayer here. I thank my friends, Dr Margaret and Canon Robert Ssekidde, the founders of the school, for balancing spirituality and academics. Let's maintain the values of this school. The products of this school must be people-minded men and women of integrity who promote peace, reconciliation and community development," Orombi said.
Orombi was delivering his homily during the school's thanksgiving function, which was held at the school on Saturday.
"We desire to see patriotic and morally sensitive alumni. Let's be committed to the development of our country and make it attractive. Let us also put our Christianity in action by helping our disadvantaged brethren," he added.
The school's Resident Director, Amelia Kyambadde said they had organised the function to celebrate and give thanks to God for the school's achievements, which included among others its excellent performance in last year's UCE and UACE exams.
Seroma launches charity
The most memorable activity of the day was the launching of Seroma Foundation, the school's educational charity. The charity was launched by the Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, who commended Dr Margaret and Canon Robert Ssekidde for their commitment to needy students.
Canon Ssekidde said the charity will enable the school to cater for the needs of needy students, even at the university.
