Foreword

It is a fascinating opportunity for
the Mighty Jambula to stretch
its inspirational arm to its ever
widening scope of readership. We
have again visited you, but this
time in a more deluxe fashion. I
am convinced that your interaction
with great minds in this treasure
trove will leave you in ascension to
a more desirable level. The Jambula
has taken the responsibility to link
your mind to successful people
in society so that you can climb
ladders. Sharing with the upcoming
‘Shakespeares’ and ‘Achebes’ is
equally gratifying.

In a special way, I welcome and
thank our esteemed leaders and
senior educationist for accepting
to be part of this edition. It is at
this point in time that I wish to
express our sincere gratitude to
the headteacher for the guidance
and making us part of the school
budget. Of course the fabulous
work done by the editorial team
cannot go unnoticed. You laboured
for the right cause and you have
earned your keep.

I believe you have discovered that
opportunity is missed by most
people because it is dressed in
overalls and looks like work. You
can’t fall if you don’t climb, but
there is no joy in living your whole
life on the ground. Interact with
this edition and learn how to climb
without falling.

CHAIRMAN BOARD OF GOVERNORS from
We are thankful to God that we have had another forum
to share with the readers of the Jambula magazine. We
welcome the new members of Iganga High school and
appeal to you to fit in the system. You will be of value
to the ins..tu..on if you embrace our values and make
us be..er than you have found us. There is no society
that exists meaningfully without a culture; therefore it is
per..nent that new entrants adjust to the set standards
and values.
The school is making a steady progress that has given
stake-holders the mo.. va..on to work harder to meet
the set goals. With combined effort of all interested and
concerned par..es, a lot has been achieved ranging from
infrastructure development, enrolment, capacity building,
means of transport to be..er performance at both levels.
The support of government and relentless effort of the
parents have propelled our vision.
The Governing body of the school and P.T.A Execu..ve are
highly commended. It is equally important to appreciate
the current school administra..on and staff headed by
Mr. Waiswa Godfrey for guiding the school towards the
desired goals. We cannot achieve much if the person in
the driving seat is less commi..ed to the cause.
The struggle to provide holis..c educa..on that can meet
the needs of the changing world is not an easy task. It calls
for investment, sacrifice, innova..on and commitment.
Stake-holders need to embrace whatever it takes to mould
children into produc..ve and morally upright ci..zens.
We therefore call upon all interested par..es to con..nue
playing their role in promo..ng the goals of Iganga High
School. The technical team cannot do much if it lacks the
support of other stakeholders, especially the parents who
form the largest resource base in the school.
The Board of Governors wishes every ac..ve member
of this large family a life full of produc..vity and
accountability.

HAJJI WALUBI ABUBAKER
We are privileged to be part of the school magazine, one of the channels through which we reach
our stake-holders. I send gra..tude to the P.T.A Execu..ve, Board of Governors, school administra..on,
staff, government and important of all, our parents for loving Iganga High school. Your unity is the
reason for the school’s progress.
Over ..me, Iganga High school has evolved into a pillar of academic excellence and centre of morality.
The image we have built has rewarded us with a growing popula..on of students which is a basis
for the running of school programmes. The school’s agenda to put up be..er facili..es intended
to provide a conducive learning environment has successfully taken course. There are enough
classrooms to accommodate the popula..on. In a special way, I would like to thank parents and
whoever contributed towards the purchase of the school bus. It has partly eased the movement
of our children. We are op..mis..c that with your con..nued sacrifice, this ins..tu..on will meet the
set targets.
I appeal to our dear parents to always endeavour to clear school dues in ..me so that children are
not interrupted. Failure to play your role in ..me demoralises children and many of them decline
in performance. There is need to follow-up your children’s performance and discipline in order to
bring up produc..ve ci..zens. Teachers alone cannot effec..vely manage to play the role of teaching
and proper child upbringing.
We urge students who have had the chance to be part of Iganga High to make use of the conducive
learning environment maximally. You should understand that success is a personal ini.. a..ve.
Therefore nobody should love your educa..on more than yourself.

things work out. This is how we have ascended
to this spot.
I appeal to our parents to note that the burden
of proper child upbringing is weighing heavier
every other day. This points
need to closely monitor, guide and counsel the
children. As a school, we carry out teacher-
paren..ng to supplement on your effort.
Dear students who have got the chance to study
from this ins..tu..on, you have all reasons to
excel in life. It is worth no..ng that the diff erence
between great people and everyone else is
that great people create their lives actiwhile everyone else is created by their lives,

MR. WAISWA GODFREY BEN
It is pleasurable for us to have another forum to
share with the wide family of Iganga High School
in the Diaspora. Your presence gives us the
impetus to traverse the long journey to success.
Being deeply loved by someone gives us strength,
while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
That togetherness is our strength since we are
as strong as we are united or as weak as we are
divided.
As an ins..tu..on, we feel highly indebted to all
stakeholders who have stood the test of ..me
by contribu..ng towards shaping and moulding
the young genera..on into useful ci..zens. The
Board of Governors, P.T.A Execu..ve, government,
interna..onal partners, individual poli..cians
and parents, all deserve recogni..on for their
effort. The diligent and relentless staff is equally
appreciated.
We have exploited every opportunity God has
given us to serve the na..on, par..cularly in
the educa..on sector. The school’s academic
performance has greatly gained rhythm. The
challenge of inadequate infrastructure is being
addressed despite the deficit budget of the
school. The on-going construc..on of the girls’
dormitory in addi..on to the effort to complete
the mul..purpose storeyed building has given us
addressed the transport problems in a se..ng

that has numerous excursions and trips.
I congratulate our dear parents and the en.. re
family upon such achievements. Victory
mo..vated us to celebrate the Iganga High
Golden Jubilee in March 2017. I thank the
organising commi..ee, the individual and
collec.. ve effort of all stakeholders for the
immeasurable contribu..on towards the
success of the occasion.

As Art Linkle..er puts it, things turn out best
for people who make the best out of the way

passively waiting to see where life takes them
to the urgent
next. Success, like swimming, cannot be learnt
by reading about it.

The greatest danger for most people is not that
their aim is too high and they miss it, but that
their aim is too low and they soon reach it. We
have therefore set very high targets which s..ll
need collec.. ve effort and unity of purpose. We
shall always create with the heart and build with
the mind so that we can evolve a genera..on
that will not only count the number of seeds
in a paw-paw, but how many paw-paws are in
one seed.

DEPUTY
ADMINISTRATION’S OFFICEfrom the
Sense of duty and responsibility is what defines
a person. The tasks we perform make us dis..nct
in the communi..es and systems that we work
for. The value we a..ach to our works gives us the
brand name and this is determined by one’s mind
set. It takes commitment, sacrifice and posi.. ve
a..tude for one to perform duty well. We are
lucky that the teachers of Iganga High have not
fallen short of these quali..es. This accounts for
the success of this ins..tu..on.
We are grateful to the almighty whose grace
has always enabled us to effec..vely manage,
implement and supervise the designed school
programmes. Collec.. ve effort in execu..ng duty
explains why we are now proud of the many old
boys and girls of this ins..tu..on who are occupying
posi..ons of responsibility in the Diaspora. These
are people who are products of a system which
looks at discipline, hard work, and integrity as
core values.
Team work is our slogan and it has yielded fruits of
excellent academics, infrastructure and purchase
of a school bus. We achieved a lot in 2017. It is
a year to recon on by the en..re community of
Iganga High School. This was spiced up by the
colourful celebra..on of the ins..tu..on’s Golden
Jubilee. Nothing Ever Comes Easy as the saying
goes. All the achievements have been as a result
of our parents’ ..reless effort. We are grateful
for your support and response to school
programmes which demand both financial
contribu..on and physical presence.
We appreciate the role played by the
governing bodies (Board of Governors,
P.T.A Execu..ve) in this ins..tu..on. The
headteacher’s commitment to the fulfilment
the school vision is definitely the secret
behind the joy and pride that we have today.
We believe a brighter future stands right
ahead if all stakeholders remain focused and
duty bound. We encourage students to work
hard in order to compete favourably in this
world of scarcity. Your parents’ commitment
to fulfilment of school dues should yield
impressive results. Nobody is proud of a
failure in life.

NABONGO SIMON PETERKIN
As a student, have you ever given the motto of
your school a second thought? Why that? When
and how? What for? A clear analysis of these
questions gives us the philosophy behind the
statement. Various old students of the school
have testified the hidden treasure underlying the
diction. We all struggle for life right from infancy
to the end of time. This perhaps reminds us of a
person who goes to bush to commit suicide, but
he takes off when he sees a python.

Many learners often use the slogan, “Survival
for the Fittest” without pondering on the logical
meaning. We need to appreciate the fact that
success is individual and proportional to one’s
in-put, determination, resilience and will. It is
worthy realising that a bright future is not only
desirable but a right to all people endowed with
the five major senses.

I am convinced that the failure to realise the
significance of the school motto is definitely an
impediment to academic excellence. In any case,
who has ever progressed without upholding the

welcome our privileged readership
that will be posi..vely impacted by the
informa..on packaged in this magazine.
We get enlightened when we interact
with successful people and that is the
purpose of the informa..on in here. The
history of Iganga High school reveals
how far it has come and the many
personali..es it has shaped beyond the
borders of Uganda.

From an Indian dominated high school to
now one of the most highly populated in
the district. Thanks to the administra..on
which chose to set records and break
them by scoring higher.

I have always used an analogy of a film to
explain why it is per..nent for everybody
in a par..cular posi..on to consciously play
his role effec..vely. In this world, all of us
in our different capaci..es are actors and
actresses. Each character is expected to
play a unique role at a par..cular ..me if
all the objec..ves of the film are to be
realised. If a character is expected to
be short and die at a par..cular spot, he
can never choose to die in the second
episode because this will affect the plot
of the play.

People who were in this school before
did their part and each of them le.. the
scene. The managers, teachers, parents
and students played their role in building
a founda..on which we need to recognise
and build on. You as a manager, teacher,
student, parent, an old boy or girl, you are
characters in making Iganga High school
an icon in educa..on in Busoga, Uganda
and the en..re East African community.

then played a very big role in shaping my future.
People who visited the school years back will be
surprised to see an ins..tu..on that has grown not
only in numbers of students but also infrastructure
and performance.

Thanks to Mr. Waiswa Godfrey. I can now proudly
tell the public without hesita..on that I am one of
the old students of the school. As the Governor
of Iganga district, it is incumbent upon me to
play my central role as a key actor if government
programmes are to yield the desired results.

I have a..ended many Iganga High school ac..vi..es
and the par..cipa..on of the stakeholders has
undoubtedly contributed to the current status.
Iganga High, you have everything that can make
you greater than you are now.

There is no need for too much if enough can do.
We have enough to achieve what we want. And
one philosopher said, “It is not the weight of the
load which breaks but the way you carry it.”

I wish our readership success in your endeavours,

CHALLENGES
OF FEES MANAGEMENT
We are grateful to our parents and the
different organisa..ons that have trust in us
and have con..nued giving us students. Your
con..nued support has enabled the school to
thrive. We are thankful to our dear parents
who have always paid school fees in ..me
which has enabled school programmes to
run as scheduled.

At Iganga High school, we have a friendly
fees policy which can favour most parents.
We allow day students to start the term
with payment of development bank slip
for the con..nuing classes in S.2, 3, 4 and 5.
Some parents however have not embraced
this and con..nue to send learners to school
without any payment. This affects our
planning because we cannot run school
programmes according to the schedule. It
is upon this background that we are urging
our parents to change a..tude. We are
commi..ed to offering quality educa..on at
affordable rates but we are finding problems
with defaulters.

We urge our parents to monitor their

1212
children when they give them money to take to
the bank. Time and again, some have diverted
money and used it in ventures like sports be..ng.
Let us join hands to see to it that children walk
straight path. There is need for parents to pick
special interest in their children while s..ll in senior
three and five so that they strategise for students’
uninterrupted concentra..on in candidate classes.
arents who cannot afford to pay fees at once
should adopt a method of instalment payment so
that the fees burden for the candidates reduces.
This can be done even during holidays.
Sending of defaulters home for fees but they
con..nue coming back to school without any money
makes us assume money was diverted. Parents with
such challenges are encouraged to share with the
headteacher and make commitments of when the
ees will be paid.
With con..nuous collec..ve effort, we shall always
move ahead of our own records.

from the

Our Senior Parent

I am greatly indebted to the school authority
for allowing me to pen ideas in this prestigious
magazine, prestigious because of the scope of
readership. Arguably, Iganga High School today
passes as one of the mighty secondary schools
in the area.

We not only laud but also appreciate parents
for choosing this school for your children’s
education. Remember that the quality/status
of any school is to a large extent determined by
the resolve and commitment of the parents and
learners.

We are happy that at Iganga High School, there
are trends that evidence the following; quality,
progress, focus, discipline, nurturing, strictness,
mentorship, and humility as part of our school
goals and objecti ves.

A careful study of our curriculum vis-a-vis other
sampled curricular followed in the developing
(second world) and Developed (first world) and
even in our category (third world countries),
against the background of; the Millenium
Development Goals, Uganda Vision 2040 and
Sustainable Development Goals show that all
fingers will point in the direction of a Transformed
Society.

This implies that stakeholders should uphold the
urge for quality education and should continue
facilitating our school towards the quest for
excellence. In an environment that off ers
excellence, great future leaders are moulded.
Here we say Bravo to our headteacher and his
staff.

All educators then, should note that the

whole world cannot be in a classroom but the
whole world is a classroom. Values, skills and
knowledge acquired is transformed development
of society.

Education for Tomorrow

Education for tomorrow should be technology
oriented and beyond mere cramming for exams.
It calls for functional learning, unlearning and
relearning. It should be economically and socially
productive to protect the young generati on from
being out competed by fellow Global Villagers.
The education should not condemn our own to
be consumers of industrial low quality or waste
from the Developed part of the Global village.

Fellow Parents

Your support has gone a long way in making our
school stand out. We should strive to encourage
and make our children’s performance stand out
too in society today and tomorrow; aware that
society sets its own exams in our children’s lives a
head of them. They should measure to the future
challenges and tasks.

Since children are gifts to us from God, parents
should give their off springs unconditi onal and
undivided parenting. Parents of Iganga High who
have done that are hearti ly thanked and remain
an example to the rest, especially those who
exaggerate poverty.

Dear students, the world is fast changing, be
focused, watchful, wise and principled. Never
be confused by a few shining metals because
everything that glitters is not gold.

I am humbled to write to you
as the Director of Studies
of this great ins..tu..on.
Special gra..tude goes to
the Almighty God who has
seen us through the year
2017. I wish to welcome all
the new entrants of 2018
to the school of intellectual
horizon.
Iganga High school is the
epitome of excellence. It has
successfully transformed
many young people into
personali..es who are
beneficial to this country.
Our system has several
classroom and out of
classroom prac..ces and
techniques that mould
individuals into disciplined
and meaningful ci..zens.
Enormous gra..tude goes
to the top administra..on,
heads of departments,
teachers, support staff ,
prefects body and the en.. re
students body for their
incomparable effort. We
appreciate that the journey
might not have been as
smooth as an..cipated, but
remember to always apply
a growth mindset in all
aspects of your life. Aristotle
had this to say; ‘pleasure in
the job puts perfec..on in
the work.’
I would be mean if I did not
recognise the selfless efforts
of the parents who have
offered financial support
and wise counsel. Dear
parents, the upbringing of
a child in this 21st century
is not a bed of roses. It
requires concerted effort
of both parents and being
steady fast.
I would like to use the words
of Socrates who said that
the nearest way to glory
is to strike to be what you
wish to be thought to be. If
you wish people to think good
of you, then s..ck to that Ernst
reader, s..ck to the virtue of love
because hatred is too great a
burden to bare, and love is only
force capable of transforming
an enemy into a friend.
I wish you a brilliant moment
as you read this edi..on of the
Jambula. God’s blessings to

MR. ALIREKI CHRIS NKWANGA
I am indeed delighted by this
opportunity to share with the
readership of the Jambula.
Great honor to the Almighty
for His grace that has enabled
us reach this far. Bravo our
headteacher for the wise
stewardship. The dedicated
staff of Iganga High and all

stakeholders are applauded.
We are equally proud of our
children who are steadily
walking the tedious academic
journey. Definitely good things
don’t come on a silver plate. I
thought it was very hard but
..me has given an answer, the
growing Glory of Iganga High
school. The pilgrimage of this
ins..tu..on is far above mere
descrip..on. We only have to
glorify God.

My teaching career begins in
1984 as a small sized young
teacher in a town school with
only two classroom blocks, no
perimeter fence and double
session. Amidst the many
challenges like seasoned
students, part ..me staff and
delayed salaries, the school
staggered on. We are only
grateful that we were able
the get useful products in all
professions.

Greatness comes in the wake
of visionary leadership. The
academic development plan

was laid and here we are. I
believe there is no system
that is greater than its leader
therefore Iganga High school
owes its greatness to its
leaders. Our headteacher
has ..relessly propelled us to
greatness that all stakeholders
are now proud of. As a staff, I
am convinced we are doing
the noble job perfectly. My
job sa..sfac..on is that many
young people have passed
through my hands to enjoy a
descent life.

With the support of all
stakeholders, we shall ably
turn this ins..tu..on into a first
world school. Let us embrace
the Chinese proverb that
goes, “Do not give me fish
but teach me how to fish.” To
my students, aspire to inspire
before you expire. Seize the
opportunity before it ceases
to be.

Alireki Chris Nkwanga
Deputy Headteacher.

It shapes your personality.

Message for the

School Barsar
The Bursar’s office is privileged to be part of the
Jambula 2018. We welcome every opportunity to
interact with our partners in na..on building. I thank
the Almighty God for the grace that has enabled us
to a certain extent realise our goals. I also thank all
the stake-holders in your respec..ve capaci..es for
the sacrifice that helped us register achievements in
2017, with the purchase of the school bus on the top
of the endless list.

It is not an easy task to parents who toil ..relessly
to finance the school programmes. It is equally
cumbersome to the management and staff because
it is costly to build a desirable system that people can
be proud of.

We urge our parents to appreciate the fact that the
mode of fees payment has a serious bearing on the
implementa..on of school programmes and ac..vi..es.
If this is acknowledged, then it will be every parent’s
responsibility to clear school dues in ..me since we
celebrate our success together. Let us join hands in
propelling Iganga High School to greater heights. The

A LEADER’S POWER LIES MORE IN HIS CHARACTER…

Gree..ngs to members of Iganga High
community and all stake-holders. The years
i have spent in service have taught me that
hard work and collec.. ve effort are essen..al
in implementa..on of policy and strategy. Our
ability to transform this ins..tu..on and achieve
remarkable improvement progress has been
as a result of these two aspects.

A school se..ng requires regular applica..ons of
new innova..ons which should be implemented
and followed up. Iganga High school through
the academics office has dras..cally changed
in the last seven years. This has been possible
due to transforma..on of students’ a..tude,
and thinking which is now posi.. ve.

Emphasis has been put on discipline and this
has made the students humble and flexible.
Credit goes to the disciplinary commi..ee.
Focused leadership has also enabled the
ins..tu..on to grow in terms of human source
and infrastructural development.

I would like to urge the staff to maintain the
spirit of hard work and commitment to our job.
Let us love our work and a lot will be achieved.
Teachers are agents of transforma..on in
society and so we should not resign from this
obliga..on. These quota..ons will not leave you

the same;
People have been able to achieve more as

a result of working with others than being
against them. Dr. Allan Framme.
The happiest people don’t necessary have the

best; they just make the most of everything
they have. This has enabled Iganga High
school to improve so much.

A leader’s power lies more in his character
than authority, a ruler’s power lies more in his
authority than character.

I wish everyone well and great achievements
in 2018. May God bless you.

Watch Out

Watch out dear young ones
You move at night
And snakes walk at night
Yearning to eat you up.
You even provoke them
As though you are bewitched.

It bites you on the leg
But the poison goes to the stomach
It swells, you vomit,
You leave school
You become a young mother
You hate the devil
But where did it fi nd you?
Watch out

Message from the

Head Girl

With much pleasure, I welcome you to the Jambula
2018. I am continuously amazed by the developments
and events at Iganga High School. They are indeed
a reflection of an institution that has taken the right
direction. No wonder the influx of students we are
having.

I appreciate the great work being done by our
headteacher and the hard working staff. I shower on
to them Allah’s blessings for their love and care.

I challenge my fellow students to emulate the
characteristics of a good nurtured person so that you
can grow into meaningful citizens. A disciplined student
will have the power of self control, and this is the
greatest weapon against most of the social problems
that befall young people. It becomes abstract to think
that parents and teachers will protect you more than
you protect yourself. You have a big role to play in
determining your destiny. Nobody plants yams and
expects to harvest bananas.

I commend the discipline my fellow students and also
appreciate those who have reformed after the regular
guidance and counseling. Students who join us should

endeavour to protect the name of
this school because it has not come
on a silver plate. That is why we have
to protect it jealously. To the students
who go to other levels aft er Iganga
High, we urge you to conti nue with
the virtues and values acquired from
here. I wish all the readers of Jambula
the best in your endeavours as We
Struggle for Progress.

Divorcing Ethos from Purpose

Divorcing Ethos from Purpose

NGOBI PETER
Our nation has plunged into a spiral of
crises as read all over the media. Crises
have made news vendors richer as they
expose all sorts negativity, especially the
nation’s “moral nakedness.” I would like
to draw your attention to a shameful story
that was published by New Vision page
10 on 7th June, 2017. I quote, “the state
minister of ethics and integrity in the office
of the president, Fr. Simon lokodo; has said
it is regrettable that a man like professor
Lawrence Mukiibi who was regarded with
high esteem lost it to the dogs at the last
hour.” He faced criticism that he fathered
children from various women outside the
wedlock.

I believe that sent shock waves down the
spine to those who respected him. But
what was wrong with this kind of reputable
citizen? The fact is that the way we behave
is a function of the construct of our internal

system. Morally, our default position is that
our functionality does not start in the accuracy
of actions but in embracing the values (ethics)
within. It should therefore be right to say that,

“You can’t divorce the conduct of your own
life from your purpose.” If your action is
disconnected from your values then you are a
functional Pharisee no matter the credentials
you flag about. Everything we are on the outside
is reflective of the position that has been taken
on the inside of our lives, and that gives our
actions power and authenti city.

When I say authenticity, I mean that there is no
hollowness, no emptiness, insecurity, futi lity,
vainness or meaninglessness in what we do. To
help you understand this deeper on how you
can make your moral behaviour predictable
and stable depending on the social setti ng you
subscribe to, the authority involved for good
conduct is;

a) The will of a deity
b) The pattern of nature or
c) The rule of reason

When the will of the deity is the authority,
obedience to scriptural texts is the accepted
standard of conduct. If the pattern of nature
is the authority, conformity to the qualities
attributed to human nature is the standard.
When reason rules, behaviour is expected to
result from rati onal thought.

In conclusion, I strongly assert that it is
transgression to divorce ethos from purpose.
Therefore, we should be mindful never to divorce
the conduct of our own lives from our ordained
purpose.

Jambula : Good afternoon madam!
Madam : Good afternoon to you!
Jambula : The mighty Jambula would like to interact with you, especially as pertains to your
responsibility as a senior woman teacher in the school.
Madam : It is a pleasure.
Jambula : How relevant is your position in a setting like this one?
Madam : This is one of the most sensitive positions in the school. The girl child, especially at the
adolescent stage needs a lot care, guidance and counselling.
Jambula : is it obscene if one asked about what some of the issues you deal with?
Madam : Not really. Actually, what affects a girl child concerns the whole nation. We handle
challenges related to adolescence, sexuality, how to guard against sexual exploitation and
harassment.
Jambula : How have you managed to shape such a big population of girls and female staff?
Madam : First of all, I am not alone. I am assisted by Ms. Naggayi Agnes and other senior staff
members. We collectively conduct regular guidance and counselling sessions. We also
invite resource persons to talk to our students. We also allow free interaction between us
and these children.
Jambula : I believe with such measures you don’t have any challenge, do you?
Madam : Definitely, yes. Some children conceal their health complications and social challenges.
This complicates our role. Other parents don’t provide enough requirements for their
children. Imagine counselling a desperate young person.
Jambula : Very delicate a situation, how do you go about such?
Madam : We invite concerned parents for sharing. In addition, we at times give our girls pads. For
instance, we gave out both re-useable and disposable pads to girls twice in 2017.
Jambula : That is great. Any message to our readership?
Madam : I thank all readers and call upon everyone especially parents to work with us for the good
of the girl-child.
Jambula : Good. Any package for your girls?
Madam : They are not my girls, I believe every person has a female child, relative or friend whom he
wishes well. Back to the question, I appreciate the level of discipline you exhibited in
2017, and pray that you maintain personal hygiene, self respect, respect for other people
and above all, be God fearing.
Jambula : I promise to take this message to my female relatives. Well, madam thank you for
interacting with the Jambula.

On behalf of the Muslim
community, I thank
Allah who has faithfully
taken care of our lives.
I am grateful to the
school administration
for the rare opportunity
it has given me to
interact with the souls
of our dear readers. We
also thank the school administration for creating
a uniform atmosphere for both religious sects
to operate. I think it is the reason for the good
discipline of our learners.
I urge the Muslim community in the school
to be symbols of morality and virtue so that
others can see justifiable cause to join you.
Religion is not merely talked about. It is
practiced. Therefore whoever resembles our
faith without practicing the good doctrines it
teaches is poisonous. It should be remembered
that discipline is the key to success, and nobody
can be disciplined when he is not religious. We
should have a competitive demonstration of
good behaviour between religions instead of
fighting one another.
Islam is peace, so we should do what is within
our means to promote and maintain it. This
gives me the right forum to condemn some
small groups of people who hide in Islam and kill
people. They falsely claim to be fighting for the
faith. But how can you promote something by
destroying its image? If you kill fellow Muslims
and the would be coverts then whom will you
preach to? May God’s grace continue guiding
Iganga High school to greater heights.

Sheikh/Hajji Yusuf Mayaye

Formal education in Africa is largely pegged to
professionalism and white collar jobs. One thinks of
white collar jobs like being a doctor, nurse, teacher,
accountant, engineer, secretary, name it. Right from
lower primary, children will tell you of this course or
another regardless of the factors at hand. You hardly
find a parent, even in the elite class talking of a child
getting skills in carpentry or modern commercial
farming. No wonder Uganda imports almost
everything, furniture inclusive. Is it the education
system or our mind set responsible for this? But we
reserve this for another discussion.
Career should be majorly guided by factors at
hand but not instincts. A child’s aptitude is a major
determinant in directing him to a particular career.
Many learners pray very hard to join certain courses
yet they have little interest and ability in subjects
that qualify them for such career. Special ability
should be in harmony with a child’s interest to avoid
frustration. A child who is good at manipulating wood
or metals should not be wasted with a bachelor’s
degree in law.
In developing countries, Uganda inclusive, career
choice is ‘one general confusion’. We crave for
professions that are in sharp contrast with our
children’s aptitude and interest. We dictate the
subject combinations they should offer at Advanced
level or the course to offer after high school. The
fruits we enjoy are not far from poor performance,
school dropout or inefficiency at work due to lack of
interest. It is pertinent that parents discuss career
choice with their children. Where need be, involve
teachers.
The problem becomes bigger if the financial status
of the parents or guardians cannot support a child’s
desired course. We have witnessed scenarios where
family property including land is sold to support
a child pursuing a degree in a given course but he
spends years without getting a job. Career choice
should aim at addressing demands of society if
education is to remain relevant.

that qualify them for such career. Special ability
should be in harmony with a child’s interest to avoid
frustration. A child who is good at manipulating wood
or metals should not be wasted with a bachelor’s
degree in law.
In developing countries, Uganda inclusive, career
choice is ‘one general confusion’. We crave for
professions that are in sharp contrast with our
children’s aptitude and interest. We dictate the
subject combinations they should offer at Advanced
level or the course to offer after high school. The
fruits we enjoy are not far from poor performance,
school dropout or inefficiency at work due to lack of
interest. It is pertinent that parents discuss career
choice with their children. Where need be, involve
teachers.
The problem becomes bigger if the financial status
of the parents or guardians cannot support a child’s
desired course. We have witnessed scenarios where
family property including land is sold to support
a child pursuing a degree in a given course but he
spends years without getting a job. Career choice
should aim at addressing demands of society if
education is to remain relevant.

31I am glad to interact with the readers of this
Edition of the Jambula about patriotism. As
a patriot, I thank the community of Iganga
High school for the exemplary duties it has
performed and rendered to our students
in terms academics, discipline and extracurricular
activities.
Iganga High school trained over 600 students
of senior one and five who joined us in 2017.
Apart from the skills acquired, the trainees
underwent many disciplines which included;
the political history of Uganda, neo-colonialism,
patriotism and national unity, anthems and
the pre-colonial history of our country. This is
partly the secret behind our ability to manage
such a large population of young people. You
simply train your students to be patriotic and
be assured of a calm institution.
This dot.com era demands that we inculcate
values into our students. This is where we need
the support of our parents to complement our
effort.
Food for thought; “Ask not what your country,
school, or home can do for you, but what you
can do for your country, school or home.”
This calls for self sufficiency and erasing the
dependency syndrome.
I take the honour to thank the R.D.C of
Iganga district, the district coordinator and
the headteacher of Iganga High school for
facilitating this noble cause.

The Wakeup Call! Take Heed!!
In the countryside when the cock craws
in the early hours of the morning, the
tune isn’t heard in the same way by all
ears. To some people, it is actually a
melodious tune still ushering in a new
day. It may not disturb their comfortable
sleep and they only wait to see the new
day unfolding with the glory of the rising
sun.
To many, it is a wakeup call and
spontaneously one jumps out of bed to
prepare for yet another day with either
luck or spell on his side. Yet for others,
it is in fact like a warning shot that the
times ahead of you are tougher than so
far experienced.
The above scenario applies to all of
us depending on our surroundings.
Whether it is a call of the bell for
morning or evening preps or early
morning prayers or the hooting of taxis,
you have to wake up indeed. It all boils
down to one thing; we hear more with
our minds than our ears. One wonders
why the disparity.
Therefore let us always wake up as
students, read books and plan for a
better future whenever the wakeup
call is made. If we don’t wake up and
be indolent, our lives will be ruined by
endless troubles of the world. Just hear
the wakeup call and take heed!

A Football Match

One person went to watch a football match,
Catholics verses Protestants.
After a few minutes, the Protestants scored a goal.
He was so happy that he jumped high and higher.
In second half, the Catholics fought hard and scored.
He was again very happy,
He jumped high and higher.
The spectators came to ask him which side he was
supporting.
He answered,
“I came to watch not to segregate.”
Who was this person?

RESPECT YOUR PARENTSRESPECT YOUR PARENTS RESPECT YOUR PARENTSRESPECT YOUR PARENTS
At our hamlet, there lived a mother with her
beloved son. Unfortunately, the mother was
one eyed and embarrassingly ugly. Parents
were invited for a class meeting just as Iganga
High School does, and as a loving parent, Jark’s
mother had to attend. Jark’s friends made fun
of his mother causing more regrets.

After his studies, Jark built a large house far
from home in order to avoid embarrassment.
But due the mother’s love, she inquired until
she found her son’s magnificent abode.
The grand children got scared of her and Jark
blamed her for visiting him without an invitation.
The mother apologised and went back
crying.

One day, his secondary school threw a party
for OBs and OGs. The mother knew his son
was obviously going to attend given his good
record in the school. Unfortunately, she became
ill to the point of dearth. Seeing that
her departure date from earth had come, she
wrote a letter to her son and left it with the
neighbour.

After the party, this son drove to her mother’s
place to check on her. He found a sad story with
a letter that had been written to him. It read;

“My son, am sorry that I didn’t manage to be
a good mother and always caused embarrassment.
My son when you were still young, you
were playing in the bush and a dry stick pierced
your eye. Due to the much love I had for you,
I could not let you grow up deformed. I therefore
gave you my right eye and I remained with
one. That is how I became deformed and ugly. I
thought it was not necessary for me to tell you
this but good bye.”

Horrified and haunted by his wicked character,
the son cried and wished he could rewind the
clock. What do we learn from this? Respect
your parents in whichever form they may be.
Appreciate them because there is a lot that we
don’t know about the journey they have trav

elled since we were born. By Daphine

What you think determines what you do.
Believe it all comes to your perception of

If you think it is impossible, then forget about
success.
Always consider the result but not the process.
Many people have defeated themselves even
before getting started.
They focus on the risks but not the yields.
Who has ever succeeded with that retrogressive
thinking?
Attitude determines altitude.
It’s the magic solution to all worries, fears and

Either to wakeup or continue sleeping.
My decision determines my destiny
I never stop learning because life never stops

Life is like a piano, it sounds the way you play it.

I never let anyone to define who I am

For my will is stronger than my desire.

For that is His nature.

Good Eating Habits

Muya had been invited for dinner at Neri’s
house. Just before Muya arrived, Mrs. Neri
complained that she did not entertain
Muya’s bad eating habits. “The woman
eats like a pig!” she exclaimed. Kaka, her
four year old son heard this with curiosity.
He determined to find out what his mother
meant.

During the meal, Kaka watched Muya’s
eating habits keenly. He noticed how Muya
would stuff his mouth full and still try to talk.
Occasionally, his tongue would reach for
food particles escaping from his mouth.
Muya noticed that Kaka had stopped eating
and was keenly staring at him instead.
“Kaka, what is wrong? Why are you staring
at me?” he asked.
“I want to know how a pig eats.” Kaka responded.
Any lesson learnt?

you, what do you do?
Son: I stop assuming.

Success

The Origin of Success
Success does not come from
the way you think it does,
It comes from the way you
think.
Therefore, think about the
way you think.
Think positively and succeed.
Mukisa

TIME TO LEARN

Be sure to appreciate everything you have got and be thankful for every little
thing in life that mean a lot. If you enjoy every situation around you then
everybody around you will enjoy loving you. Live life to express but not to
impress. Do not strive to make your presence noticed, just make your absence
felt. Be a good example as twice the value than good advice. Therefore direct all
efforts in setting a good example rather than giving good advice. Future is not
something you avail, it is something you must create.
