Kibuli Old Students Seek to Complete Kaawaase Block

The Kibuli Old Students Association (KOSA) has unveiled ambitious plans to finalize the construction of the Kaawaase Block, a building named in honor of Sports-loving Hajji Abbas Kaawaase Mukasa, the school’s longest-serving headmaster.

Kaawaase served as the headmaster of Kibuli Secondary School from 1978 until his retirement on September 30, 2002.

Under his leadership, the school not only excelled academically but also became a powerhouse in sports, winning eight out of their eleven Copa Titles during his tenure.

His legacy includes nurturing numerous sports stars such as Mujib Kasule, Robert Aloro, and Sam Ssimbwa.

Despite the project’s initiation two decades ago, the Kaawaase Block remains incomplete.

To address this, KOSA, in collaboration with the school administration, is mobilizing alumni, parents, and well-wishers to raise the estimated Sh420 million needed to finish the three-storey building.

The Kaawaase Block is envisioned as a state-of-the-art health facility for the school, providing treatment and short-term care for both students and staff.

This project symbolizes a heartfelt tribute to Hajji Kaawaase’s significant contributions and enduring impact on Kibuli SS.

KOSA President Abbas Agaba expressed optimism about the initiative, stating, “This project is not just about honoring a remarkable educator; it’s about giving back to a community that has given us so much. We urge all alumni and supporters to join hands in making this vision a reality.”

On Sunday, the Old Students held a Sports gala where Luwangula House were crowned overall champions after triumphs in Football (senior) and Woodball Ladies (junior), Chess and Athletics (gents).

Africa House came second closely followed by Kakungulu and Agakhan Houses in that order.
