Ugandan – style food tasting

At Liss, as we approach the end of our Uganda topic, we set the children a design technology task – to plan and make a Ugandan – style meal. Before the children can do this, they have to taste Ugandan food. Mr Stanley was very busy in the Liss kitchen making the following:

Roast IRISH potatoes

Roast Sweet potatoes



Banana chips



The children tasted the food and had to complete an evaluation. The next step will be to plan and create their own Ugandan meals. We will report to you on their progress!

Uganda Travel Guides

As part of our topic on Uganda, the children have been using the evidence from their research on the country to write their own travel guides for Miss Duncan, who will be visiting Uganda for the first time in July. The children have given Miss Duncan a copy of the letters they have sent her.

We would like to know what Ugandan pupils think of our travel guides. Do they give an accurate reflection of Uganda?

Current update from Kafuro

Greetings to all our friends in the World,

We thank everyone who spares his precious time to read our blogs and witness from what we are learning together.

Liss community, our special friends, we are proud of all the activities you do.

On an assembly, Mr. Yowasi Byaruhanga has been updating about progress Liss Junior School has making both in studying about Uganda and sport. In sports, a hand of applause to Toby and all other Liss participants who have continued to uplift Liss Junior School’s name.

All of us at Kafuro Primary School, we are very lucky to study about England and our friends.  In addition, we have learnt a lot from you about even our own country and even Africa from our interaction with you.

We are training very hard for friendly matches with schools in the conservation cup,
We are the Tag Rugby champions for the last two years. We are training very hard to be the best champions in this year.

In weather, we have been experiencing a dry spell for almost two and a half months. February is usually a rainy month but this time the conditions has changed.
In this, Mr. Yowasi Byaruhanga has alerted us again about the facts about global warming and weather changes due human activities. Most of our school children have been mobilized to plant at least one tree every month.
Buying seedlings is far better and quicker than making a nursery bed.
We have selected a representative for every class to coordinate the process of all our pupils in school planting a tree every month and clearing and promoting the environmental conservation.

Thanks for reading our blog.
If you have been reading our blog in silence, well done, but we kindly recognize you and thank you. Could you please write a small comment for us to hear from you?? 🙂

Written by Primary Six and seven – guided.

Athletic success at Liss Junior School

Greetings to all of our friends in Uganda. I am writing to let you know of some great athletic achievement from a Liss pupil, Toby.

Toby was one of the Liss pupils who competed in the South East Hampshire Cross Country Championships and finished 2nd out of  119 boys earning himself a silver medal in the process.

We would like to hear about how our friends in Ugandan schools have achieved success in sport. For example, Mr Stanley was told last year that 3 Mahyoro pupils had been chosen to represent the county in football. Please share any success stories with us.

Latest news from Kafuro

Warm greetings to all our friends at Liss. I am writing to update you on what is happening at Kafuro. We returned to school on February 4th for a new academic year. Firstly, I wanted to let you know that the water pipeline paid for by the pupils of Liss has made an enormous difference to our school. We appreciate  you have given Kafuro pupils life because water is life. The water has been treated and, although it would not be safe for Liss pupils to drink without being boiled first, Kafuro pupils are able to drink it because it is much cleaner than water they have drunk before. In other use apart from being drunk by our pupils ( You know at Liss that Uganda feels warm during our all through summer to even 33 or more degrees Celsius ) the water helps to calm the dust in our muddy classes, then and cleaning those important places.
The UK people have loved us that you people have donated a hand wash facility at school.
On drinking,
 Now the challenge,
Kafuro primary school now has an enrollment of more than 340 pupils, theses friends of yours need at least two cups of water every day. But due to the limited resources, the school decides to avail only one jerrican ( 18 liters)of water per day to the 340 and above pupils, this would be called proper use if Uganda was cold.
The water company installed a water meter and we have a monthly bill of around 50,000 UGX (£11) for your friends at Kafuro to fully access the water specifically for drinking during their time at school.
We are also pleased to report that further work has been completed on the new block of classrooms. When Mr Stanley visited Kafuro in 2017 he brought money from the our friends at Liss JS which enabled us to finish building walls. These walls have now had a render applied. Once doors and windows are fitted, the building will be complete.
The building is currently helping the nursery section to have shade on third head.

Kafuro pupils are already preparing for the 2019 Conservation Cup. Our tag rugby and football teams are already practising hard ahead of the tournament at the end of July/beginning of August. As Liss pupils will know, Kafuro have been tag rugby champions for the last two years and we would like to win it for a third time with the football trophy to be year’s overall champions.
Adam will miss this!

Primary six seven and five together have been learning debating skills this term. Our latest motion was, ‘Should Queen Elizabeth National Park be turned into farmland?’ The pupils enjoyed this very much and it also caused much laughter and happiness plus confession.

Christopher said, “The National Park brings friends to Uganda like Mr Stanley.” Prisca argued, “It is good for national parks to be created because it allowed God to link animals with humans to create laughter”
And one Catheline said the got her smuggle firewood from the park and hit her with a stick so she expressed her dissatisfaction as a poacher.

Finally, we are looking forward to receiving Miss Duncan, Mr Davies and the team from CM Sports in Uganda this year.
