The Focalare movement began during the Second World War in 1948, in the northern part of Italy called Trent. Chiara and her companions understood that the gospel could be put into practice, so in the midst of war, they could run with the Bible, read it and put it into practice.

The evangelical love of neighbour.  A love that is ever new which I for every one and one has to take the first step in loving and be able to recognise and love Jesus in every neighbour.

Writers Club

Writers club has had eminent representation since its inception in the school. With the slogan, “the Pen is the tongue of the Mind”, the club is a good avenue for students to express themselves and appreciative the creative arts.

 With the weekly meetings involving reading, writing poetry (watching poetry recitals), and short stories, we believe it is a good start to aid learners discuss each other’s works, open their minds to criticism and general view of the world.  The students are introduced to the skill of editing and general literary appreciation.

The club prides in the weekly readers’ and writers’ news letter, ‘click S.K.S’, this we hope will aid all the students to develop their reading and writing skills.

The students have been able to participate in various competitions. Last year (2013) the students took part in the short story day Africa competition, a global activity by Uganda Women Writers Association (FEMRITE), with the two stories presented from Mbonigaba Julius Ceaser and Diko Winifrey, Diko emerged the runner up of the competition after PMM Girls Jinja, winning an Anthology of short stories, and Susan Kiguli’s poetry book, ‘African Saga’. The students were also able take part in the poetry recital with the lantern meet of poets during the talent show. This helped them to know the basics of oral expression and presentation.

This year, the students took part in MEBO theatre writing competition and Diko Winifrey emerged a winner of the A’ level section.

We hope to publish an anthology of the students work annually. Like many, we belief writing is cathartic and as a club, we hope the students get as much exposure to writing as possible. The students have learnt to share with others discursively believing that the pen is the best weapon.

Young Christian Students (YCS)

The club aims to make the world in which a student is living a better and happier one to live in both spiritually and materially. The club strengthens the Christian Faith of the person involved and aids bring a deeper social and Christian awareness of the problem facing the world and provide solutions.
