Living Hope Christian High School students were given a taste of university life when the Nkumba University News team made an appearance at their entertainment event, hosted by the school’s writers club.
Over 300 students gathered in the School’s main hall to enjoy a variety of entertainment, including bottle flipping, poem recitals, singing, and dancing. Winners walked away with gifts.
Presiding over the mini-competition, Mwanje Gideon, the Law Society president who is also a columnist with Nkumba University News thanked students for embracing such activities, “I was overwhelmed by your talent, you are on the right course, keep it up. “
The event reached its climax with a radio simulation show, where host Nakawesa Christine interviewed studio guest, Tendo Job Prosper about his personal life.
Christine Namaganda, the radio show host, commended the Nkumba University News team for inspiring the students. “I am excited that Nkumba University is here. When people of this stature speak to us, we are inspired to work hard,” she said.
Namaganda also mentioned that the event made her reconsider her career plans, After this, I am thinking I should pursue media studies instead of accounting.”
The writers club at Living Hope Secondary School is a group of students dedicated to gathering, compiling, and disseminating information within the school.
