Arguably one of the richest men in Uganda, Sudhir Ruparelia is a man who has done so much good for Uganda. From investing in top notch hotels, banks, insurance, agriculture to education, Sudhir has put his money where it can uplift Ugandans.
However during the recent Kampala International School Uganda open day, the businessman was awed by the practical skills students can accomplish. The open day was used by pupils and students to showcase what they have learned through the year.
The students exhibited art and crafts they had made, music and dance performances were on the agenda, class work among other things. The Bukoto based school is one of the leading international schools in the country.
The school formerly known as Kabira International School was established in 1993 with 67 students. It has since grown steadily and is currently home to about 600 students representing 60 nationalities. KISU provides state-of-the-art facilities including four science labs, three computer labs, three music rooms, three performance areas, an indoor gym, outdoor basketball court, 25 metre eight lane competition swimming pool, two libraries, smart boards in most classrooms and a five acre playing field.
The School Director Steve Lang in his speech said KISU wants students to be active learners, self-motivated and engage themselves in their own learning process. “We are preparing our young people to enter a truly global marketplace where competition is fierce and we must do all that we can to ensure they have the best chance of succeeding in this context.” Lang explained.
