Old students of Kigezi College Butobere under their association Siniya Alumni Forum have today resolved to establish the Kigezi chapter Siniya Alumni Forum and the revival of their annual commemorations dubbed Siniya day as part of the proposed strategies to revive the school and increase school enrollment.
The two resolutions were reached today during a crisis meeting organized by old students under their association Siniya Alumni Forum chaired by the managing partner of Namara Twine and company advocate Elvis Twenda. Twenda told our reporter that the meeting was organized to engage old students of the school from districts of Kigezi Sub-region on how to revamp the school and increase its enrollment. He added that old students agreed that it is important to have old students from the region mobilized and engaged through a recognized association and Bright Mawanda was elected to be first chairperson of the Kigezi chapter Siniya Alumni Forum deputized by Timothy Niwebyoona.
Twenda also revealed that the old students resolved that the school should resume their annual celebrations organized as Siniya day as part of strategies to bring together old students and mobilize more students from around in order to increase the school enrollment which is currently at 220 students.
During the meeting, the chairperson of Kigezi College Butobere Board of Governors Moses Turyomurugyendo Ntahobari said that the board will ensure that the remaining 68 acres of school land are titled.
