On 28th March to 2nd April 2018, more than 1,000 students from over 40 Schools and Colleges attended “UKWATA Easter Conference” (Which is translated in English “Tanzanian Students Christian Fellowship”).

The theme of the Conference was “…Youths to refrain from the dangers of the last days…” (2 Tim 3:1-5), and the aim was to build up students spiritually and socially. The Conference included a series of seminars on Christian topics (eg:  The power of Prayer; Friendship, Courtship and Relationship towards Marriage; Life after Secondary School; etc). It also included Bible, Singing, and Gospel Dancing competitions, Easter Worship, UKWATA general business and elections, and a Picnic at Bugonzi waterfalls.

The School can only praise God for the wonderful support it received from the Donors who sponsored the Conference and wishes to thank them all for their generosity and effect it has had. Because of their kindness, 87 KLSS students, from all years, were able to attend the Conference. We know, from experience, that this will likely have had a lasting impact on the spiritual and social growth of the students who attend.

Secondly, they need to know that their kindness enabled our students to develop and demonstrate their talents with outstanding results in the competitions: Fourth Place in the Gospel Dancing; Second Place in Bible; and First Place (Winners) in the Singing. Further, these achievements led to our students being selected to represent the Kagera Region in the National UKWATA Conference to be held in June 2018.

Finally, we received many public compliments on the attitude, behaviour and example of our students at the Conference. They were a credit to the School. And in fact two of our Form 5 students were elected as UKWATA Office Bearers.

All these wonderful achievements were made possible by our Donors. May God bless you all.
