News in details
The construction work and the renovations are still ongoing at the school campus. Roofing of the extension block has already started and the foundation level for dining hall is almost complete.




Besides the religious gathering on each New Year’s Eve, the Buganda carnival, dubbed Enkuuka y’omwaka, is by far the most attended event that day.

The show, organized by the kingdom’s radio station CBS in Lubiri, is how the kingdom light-heartedly ends the year while crowning winners from the six-month long Entanda ya Buganda quiz competition that tests people’s knowledge of Buganda. All the gates at Lubiri were open as early as 5am and people started making their way to the grounds even when machines were just being tested.

The Kabaka of Buganda Kingdom Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II ready to unlock the new year 2015.

Former Kampala Mayor Al-Hajji Nasser Ntegge Ssebagala has resigned from Government to concentrate on what he describes as a political comeback.

Ssebagala also told journalists that what he expected when he joined Government “has not happened”.

He also announced a complete divorce with the ruling party NRM, a party he has diligently served during the last four years.

In a rather regrettable tone, Ssebagala also apologized to his supporters for joining what he described as the “yellow bus”.

In the 2011 general elections, Ssebagala campaigned for President Yoweri Museveni, who was the NRM flag bearer.

After the elections, Museveni appointed him minister without portfolio but Parliament rejected him citing his suspect moral record and questionable academic records.

However, Museveni later in 2012, re-appointed Ssebagala as a Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Duties, a job he gladly took on.

However, in a rather political position for 2016, Ssebagala has resigned from Government claiming that he has to focus on 2016 prospects, especially the contest for Lord Mayor at the City Hall.



Obituary/The late David Nadduli Kisuule (10th July 1969-4th January, 2015)

Gombe Junior School Community was robbed of a comrade, mentor and a hero on Sunday 4th January, 2015. David as he was called “was a great man, the greatness that began with humility”.

He attended Mugwanya Preparatory School for his primary school. He loved machines particularly cars hence became a driver soon. He knew everything about cars both manual and automatic systems, trucks and vans. One time he drove the school truck of Buloba High School for 6 years, He later drove trucks of Kiddawalime Bakery. One of his pupils in the school Van Kimera William in P.5 said Kisule was a giant of a man, very humorous, warm hearted and always wanted to help people whether parents or pupils. A staff party without Kisuule would be a missed opportunity to see rare dance strokes.

He will be greatly missed, but he can rest assured that the mark he left on Gombe Junior School can never be rubbed away.
Hard work and loyalty are some of his special qualities.
May His Soul rest in Eternal Peace.
