Four students at Kisinga Vocational Secondary School in Kisinga Town Council who were on Tuesday 23rd 2021 confirmed in the Anglican faith by the Bishop of South Rwenzori Diocese, the Rt. Rev. Nason Baluku got a reason to smile after being promised support by the prelate.
The Church Minister, who was on his first pastoral visit at the institution to dedicate the senior four and six candidates as well as confirming the four students in the Anglican faith, said being his first confirmation service since he was consecrated Bishop on December 13, 2020, he would adopt the four confirmants to be part of his children.
In his preaching during the service, the Church Minister asked the candidates to be determined and confident with their trust in God, something he said would lead them to success.
Speaking to our reporter in a jovial mood shortly after the service, the confirmants including Wilton Moshen Muhindo, Rhoda Linda Mbambu, Alima Nyangoma all from senior four and William Mumbere from senior six described the Bishop’s pledge as a blessing to them as individuals and deliverance in their families.
In his report to the Bishop, the School’s head teacher, Benjamin Masereka reported that lack of alternative means of survival among the communities surrounding Kisinga was among the reasons why some parents have failed to pay fees for their children.
The head teacher revealed that management has not been able to pay salaries of non-pay rolled staff because the parents have failed to fulfill their obligation of paying school fees for their children.
In his response, Bishop Baluku said there was need to sensitize the parents and their children about the need to prioritize education and its values. Ends
