The roof of the primary school Don Bosco Namugongo flew this night around 1. 00 AM. Some parts of the roof flew up to the entry of the Salesian community.  This was due to frequent  torrential rains shaking these deays Uganda in general and Kampala in particular. The heavy rain accompanied by  thunderstorms has made toggle the hope of the province of the AGL to open a Don Bosco primary school in January of next year 2016.The rain of the previous night had destroyed the angle of the top, from the west side, which supports the roof. The destroyed part has left a large hole through which the wind of this last night passed. The engineer was immediately alerted and together we decided to prevent the catastrophe by mobilizing workers not later than Monday 21/12/2015. Unfortunately, man sometimes decides and the nature decides otherwise. Now the catastrophe has occurred, and we are assuming its terrible consequences. By this time, the Engineer is at the place trying to calculate the costs of the damage.  And he promised to engage its workers this Sunday morning to try to prevent the whole building from falling down in case the same vigorous rain comes back tonight.

At the beginning of this year, we embarked on a mass training program of brass band playing for all the primary school going children from the Centre. This was so because of the serious need of having many brass band players within our community. Our youngsters acquire music skills from their early age and develop them little by little. Besides, we do all agree that these boys need entertainment and music is one of the best ways of creating joy among the young and in a Salesian community just as Don Bosco says that a Salesian house without music is like a body without a soul. The other reason for this campaign is that majority of the children who are already in brass band are completing their studies and are preparing themselves to build their own future and to live independently and for this reason we decided to train all the primary school going children. The children showed interest and portrayed a positive attitude towards this arrangement which made it quite easier for the trainer as he normally arrives and finds that the boys have set up everything just waiting for him.
