The program was opened by mass at 9:00am led by Fr Posiano Mayiga the youth chaplain Uganda martyrs shrine Namugongo with co-celebrants Fr Eli Nyandwi Fr. Pascal Shauri and Fr.Wilfried Mushagalusa. Also present were some Salesian brothers, Bro Hubert, Provincial economer and Bro Cyprian as well as the children of Don Bosco nursery and primary school, parents, teachers and the local community around.
After mass, thousands flocked to watch the football match final which was organized by the school assisted by the games master Mr. Magezi. This final came out after different colors involved in the competition which started on 19 February 2020, that is to say blue, yellow, red and green color respectively. Briefly on the various tournaments, blue color versus yellow color which ended 3:1 in favor of blue color; the second match was played on Thursday where red color played against green color and ended 2:1 in favor of red color and later on Saturday there was the final match which was between blue color and red color. The match began at 11:45am as scheduled. As Don Bosco is famous in games and sports, the matches brought excellent entertainment and moments of relaxation to Don Bosco nursery /primary school and the entire community. As soon as the match had ended with RED COLOR taking the lion’s share, the crowd departed for other items and that was lunch, awarding the best performers in the match, and a bit of music, dance and drama.
The community had provided enough food and drink for both Don Bosco community, friends, and parents who were involved in the function.
After the meal, the school choir, acrobatic performers, and one of the dance crew entertained the visitors; this is one of the ways Don Bosco community promotes, develops and gives freedom of expression to the young people.
Allan Ssentongo, a primary seven candidate who scored 3 goals emerged as the top scorer, Amos Kamanda, a primary seven candidate emerged as the best player, Henry Kiwendo as the best defender and Gerald Niwamanya, a primary seven candidate the best goal keeper. They were awarded medals by Rev Fr Eli the director of Don Bosco nursery/primary school assisted by Rev Fr Wilfried and other religious. Finally, the heads of the school gave their last speeches, giving a word of thanks to the parents for entrusting them with their children.
