Buloba Sports Day
Buloba CDP hosted a day of fun and games for the children of their Project. The day, meant to teach discipline and teamwork, among other things, consisted of several sporting events. Among the games were: Sack Races, Long Jump, High Jump, Football, and Netball.
Each of the participants exhibited outstanding talent in their own unique manner. The girls had a lot to be proud of when one of their own (Sylvia Nabukeera) beat the boys at the high jump. The guest of honour, Ps. Evelyn Rucharekere (the overseer of Buloba CDP) applauded the house leaders and the children for exhibiting such a high class of discipline and sportsmanship.
The event concluded with an award ceremony, in which the winners in each category received a trophy for their efforts.
