From reference from of the Gazelle of 2010 , Hajjat Fatuma Ssengendo was glad that the writer’s club of 2010 granted her the opportunity to highlight on the ‘Connecting Classrooms Project’. It was once a project before the birth of the club. It is an initiative of the British Council with the main objective of creating global citizenship and encouraging networking.
Networking is a modern method of improving performance of organizations including schools. For easier administration , it was turned into a club. She dreamed of a time when schools would visit each other and learn from each other’s good practices and morals. In the Gazelle , it was disclosed that the direct result of Connecting Classrooms is the formation of partnership in which various schools in Uganda combine to form a cluster ,these schools include Nabisunsa Girls’ School , Kyambogo College and Kyambogo Primary School among others.
Back then , our partners from Scotland and South Africa visited , several schools around Kampala were visited for example Kampala Parents’ School , Seeta High Mbalala campus , Bishop Cipriano Kihangire Luzira and Luzira Secondary School. Nabisunsa and Kyambogo College formed a Joint Connecting Classroom Club which will oversee joint projects to be done by the two schools. They had already started some projects and been able to in order to strengthen our networks with other schools. Hajjat Fatuma was looking forward to our ladies’ visiting their counterparts in Scotland and South Africa.
We can only hope the existing cabinet and revive the club and fulfill Hajjat Fatuma’s wishes.
