Donation Received

This message arrived from RYDA on July 24th following a transfer sent earlier in the month which was reported in the previous eNews.

Am sorry for the delay but we have been busy registering our students for their end of the year exams both DIT and UBTEB, but I write to acknowledge the receipt of $US1895.

Let me also extend our sincere appreciation to all those who have made this possible. But in a special way to St. Margaret Uniting Church and St. Johns Cowes who have continued to support these events.

Now we are finalizing registration exercise and we shall then embark on the graduation event preparation.
Geoffrey Steven Kyeyune

Editor's Note:
You can gain some idea of what is involved in registering 200+ students by visiting the Uganda Business and Technical Examinations Board site. You can also confirm on this site that RYDA is a registered examination centre (#170 in the list), an honour which brings considerable responsibility.

New Art Installations

The RYDA Art Department has begun an exciting new addition to their curriculum. Students are gaining experience in creating and installing life-size outdoor art pieces within the RYDA compound which reflect the principles and practice of living and learning at this wonderful Buloba centre.

Perched on the slope in front of St. Margaret Hall and just above the compound entrance, this first piece celebrates graduation.

The second piece, above and below right, will illustrate two students in discussion. Both exhibition pieces are being prepared for the graduation ceremony for 2018 students which will happen in a few weeks.

WorkAid Application

The WorkAid application for funding has been submitted and received. It was supported by a letter from St. Margaret's Uniting Church. It now works its way through this charity's processes and eventually, we hope, will lead to a donation of much needed to tools to restock and extend RYDA's teaching equipment.

The application included statistics such as the number of graduates from 2003 to 2018 is over 4854.

Information about numbers of students in each course in 2018 is shown in this chart.
