IGANGA, (UG): At least 87 bags of cement were on Saturday donated by alumni of Iganga Progressive secondary school under their association of Iganga Progressive Old Students’ Association (IPOSA), to support various developments at the school.

The old students led by their chairperson SP Richard Isanga Kawoowo (the production officer with Uganda Police Directorate of Production and Welfare) said it was a dream to form the association to bring all alumni together.

SP Kawoowo says the initiative by the alumni was aimed at renovating some buildings at the 32-year-old school.

“Our dream has been fulfilled that we’re back home because we’re what we’re because of this school. We resolved on soliciting tangible assistance to the school after observing that some buildings needed renovation and we have managed to bring 87 bags of cement as a donation to the school after soliciting it amongst ourselves,” IPOSA chairperson SP Isanga said before urging other OBs and OGs to respond positively.

SP Isanga commended the alumni for their contribution and called upon OBs and OGs of other schools to emulate their example as a way of inspiring the learners in their respective former schools right from the primary.

He also advised learners to have role models something he said will continue pushing them to the point of success in their academic journey.

“We call upon all OBs and OGs of various schools right from primary to value and support their schools by forming associations which will inspire some learners. I want to also tell the students that patience is key and everything has its own time, so I call upon you to have role models who will inspire you to work harder academically,” SP Isanga added.

The speaker of IPOSA Mr Waiswa Ismael alias Typpaca said there is a need to keep close to each other as alumni since it promotes unity and access to opportunities and support from one other. He said a number of reputable persons went through the school and he called upon other OBs and OGs of the school to support the cause.

“We call upon our colleagues who were not with us on this cause to come and join us because we all passed in this school to get where we are. We also need to be united and keep things moving, I may be having a bigger demand than the other but we can help one another if we’re together,” Mr. Typpaca said before naming some of the big shots who went through the school.

Among the alumni of the school are; Hon MP Kigulu South Milton Muwuma, MP for Bunya South Hon Hajj Iddi Isabirye, the legal officer at UCC Dr Waiswa Abdulsalaam, former MP Hon Onyango Gideon, officials in police like SP Sowali Kamulya and the former Iganga woman MP seat contestant Ms Mariam Seif.

The woman MP for Iganga district Hon Kauma Sauda Alibaawo through Iganga youth leader Mr. Buyinza Abdulrahim, donated 10 bags of cement before appreciating the principal of the school Mr. Baidha Isaac and his deputy Mr. Ngobi Peter for the good results from the school.

A number of well-wishers of the school have applauded the OBs and OGs of the school for the good decision which inspired them and also donated to the school.

Meanwhile, the principal of the school which began in June 1991, Mr Baidha Isaac commended the school alumni for their support towards uplifting the face of the school and encouraged them to continue supporting the school.

He says they have tried to maintain good academic performance ever since they entered the field of education, something he said has seen a number of successful people produced by the school.
