Dear our friends, Allison, Delaney, Tatum, Kambree and Kamdyn.
We have been missing to write to you because this has been a busy term for us all. We have done more tests and exercises so we did not have space at all. What have you been doing the last few months? I hope you are all health. We are good at Great Valley.

I was saying to my friend last week that we are so lucky to have friends in your school. The computer you gave to us has been so good to me because I have learnt how to type fast. I will be making more practice.
How is Miss Susan and Miss Cindy? We really miss them so much. How is Josh, Andrew, Tyler, Ryatt and all friends. Which class are you now? I have now finished my primary Leaving Examinations so I am hoping to go to senior school next year if God wishes.

Are already in a senior school now?

Your friend,

Hello Lindsay and Genesis.

Hello Lindsay and Genesis,
How have you been doing recently. We are really sorry that we did not write to you for so long. We have had a busy school term because we were preparing for the end of year examinations but finally we have finished them.
We have missed writing to you but fortunately, here we are now. How has your school year been? Are you still going to Miss Cindy's class? We have now done our end of primary examinations and I hope God will be with us so we can go to school after here. My dream is to become a doctor so how I wish I can get it. What do you want to become when you are grown? How has your dad and mum been doing recently? Please say hello to them and wish them a Merry Christmas and happy new year.

Bye my dear friends,

Thank you my teachers.

Oh, at last I have finally finished my primary Leaving examinations and I feel proud. I know God was with me while writing my  exams so I will excel. Thanks to all my teachers for the great work done.

Prossy Atuhurire.

Thank you God for helping me pass.

I am glad that whatever was taught to me has finally appeared in the final examinations. Thanks to my teachers for the great work done which has brought the smile of success.

I know all will be fine until the issuing of the results. The struggle still goes on and I now ask for God's mercy to help me further so I may continue with my studies.

Thanks an extra to Mr. Bawalagga , Mr. Bosco and Mr. Bernerd.

Your lovely student,

Miss Cindy and friends.

Dear Miss Cindy,
My name is Nulu and I have many friends like Namakula Rabiha, Nada, Reagan, Samiha (we call her BIG because she is fat).
We love you so much at our school. We read your letter sometimes and we get so happy. I think you are like Mr. Bawalagga, our teacher. He also loves teaching us and also being with us all the time. He loves the young children in school and if he is not at school I feel bad because he teaches me maths very well. Our teacher tells us interesting stories in our classes. You really must like him. 
I am so thankful to you Mrs. Cindy and your friends for loving us. Thank you for everything you do. Our teacher says you have just begun school and here we are about to end the year. Christmas is coming up soon and I love it. I pray that I will be able to send my friends a gift,

Your friend in Uganda

How to Pass Mathematics.

I discovered the trick to pass mathematics than never.; My teacher always told me never to be negative about this subject; he told me to solve at least ten numbers a day; use my friends before using the teacher but this has been the story to my success in mathematics. To all you my friends who think mathematics is hard, try my trick and you will not regret.

Girls' Day

Many people think going to school is obvious but this not true, however it takes a lot of courage and support; not only financial but also mental and moral support to the young generation. The wave of challenges they face especially in developing world has seen many of them drop out of schools. The girl child especially in Uganda faces a lot of oppression and so many discontinue with studying. Petty things have landed our dear young girls into problems with selfish men especially in slums like ours.
Many young girls especially 14 to 18 years have been deceived by people with simple gifts to woo them from the right channel of education; but remember my young generation, that is just short -lived, many good things are in the future so value the opportunity of education.

We have organized a seminar that will take place on the 18th of November and we shall have many speakers from Christ the King Church , Victory Church, Hon. Maria Kagimu, Child Need Africa and many local leaders and gospel artists. We expect a lot of advice from them ,so do not miss.
Inform all friends.

Life had not come to an end.

When my teacher told me that life cannot end until it ends, I did not understand what he really meant. Last year I sat for my primary leaving examinations and I thought that was the end of life because I did not have hope that one day I will ever go to school again because our school goes only up to primary seven. So I wondered how and what I could do thereafter but there is a Living God that has enabled me to go to school in this new year.
I will always be grateful to my teachers for the love and care.

A Great Opportuinty in my Life.

Oh GOD, this day has been so great for me. I thought studying had ended last year after I sat for my primary Leaving examinations but I thank GOD and my teacher, Mr. Bawalagga Yaledi for his effort to find me a sponsor who will take me through my O- level secondary level for 4 years. This is my a very great opportunity for me. God always help me and I know I will achieve more in my life.

Thank you all our friends for inspiring us,

We shall dance for you one day.

Here we were ready to perform for the visitors that came from the Local Council Division and they loved the magic in the dances! I love dancing so much and I hope when I grow up, I will be a great dancer. In the picture,  we were dressed to perform a dance called Rack Rack dance from Northern part of Uganda . We can explore the whole Uganda by just getting the dances of different tribes. I wish that you can come to Uganda and we dance for you. By the way, how is Mrs. Susan and Mrs. Harriet? I remember they came to our school and found us training but now we are so perfect. Do you also dance at your school? I love the band, do you have a band at McKay Creek Elementary School?

We Love Our Teacher so Much.

We love our teachers so much and they also love us so much. We always love to be with them and they give us a lot of care and comfort. Do you love your teachers? On left is teacher Fred and on right with me(Nevia) is Mr. Bawalagga Yaledi, my most loved teacher.

On left is my friend, Nulu and on the right it is me, Rabiha. We were recently dressed in the dancing constumes when we were going to perform at a zonal competition to select a school that will go on national competition. I hope we shall be able to go there.
How are you doing these days? It is long since I heard from you. I hope you are doing well. I really enjoy dancing and if you ever come to our school, i will be glad to teach you how to dance like i do.

How is our lovely teacher, Mrs. Cindy and Mrs. Susan? Lov you so much,

My first Vist to The NILE.

Hey friends, I took this photo when I went to visit the source of the Nile. The Nile is the longest river in Africa, and probably the longest in the world. I loved the tour around the falls and so I can now answer all questions related to this place where we went.

It was really a great day for me.

I loved the magic of the water.



It was really an amazing time for us when we went to see one of the falls on River Nile. Have you heard about this river? This is thought to be the longest river in the world. It starts in Uganda and runs through three countries until it finally drains into the North of Africa in the Mediterranean Sea. I wish you come and I take you to the Itanda falls. There are some many falls but some have been destroyed when the government is constructing the electricity power plants. 
I hope you like that sound of the water,
Your lovely friend in Uganda, 


We visited some of the falls found on River Nile, the world's longest river. Can you imagine that at that speed, it is said that the water takes about three months to reach its mouth in Mediterranean sea. I really enjoyed watching how water rushed dowm the falls. 
What falls do you have near you?

We love to play together.

If you got the chance to come to our school, we would love to teach you how to play these drums. Which kind of drums do you play at McKay School?

Testimony for our relationship.

Hello everyone,
Thank you so much for this great opportunity you gave our children to share with you. It was always our dream to find such great friends around the world, with whom we could share our ideas, challenges and experiences, but here we are! when I, Bawalagga - teacher at Great Valley visited Miss Cindy's class blog, I over joyed to see how she does her work with her children. I wondered how we could adopt the same but when we got this computer, things changed!
We have registered positive attitude about learning by our children. They feel at home always and I can realize that they are even more eager to learn more. We can now try to access learning resources from internet using our computer.

The joy we have cannot be expressed by writing, but we can simply say, THANK YOU ALL.

Bawalagga Yaledi,
Teacher - GVCC.

The Young Talents of Great Valley.

 I am Nevia, I love dancing and I love studying so much. I am in primary five and i am performing so well in the class. Last term I was second in examinations behind my friend, Bernard. I hope I can work so hard to keep the good grades. I am good at dancing and it is my favorite activity.

 Here we were singing a song about AFRICA and I think we shall be able to produce it one day.
we are two good friends, Sumayiya and Mercy. We are both good at dancing. Each of us thinks is better than the other. I was the best in last years competitions but Mercy has always been the best also.

For you Mrs. Susan.

 Hello friends, it is always a pleasure to write to you. I am Vivian once again. The joy I have is over my heart. When my teacher told me that he had got me a place in a high school, I felt the world had come down to me! How happy I am, you cannot tell. I now go to St Peters High School, and it was a school of my dream.
I was given the vacancy after he told them that I am good at dancing. The principal of the school decided to come and watch me during the last music and dance competitions we had and said I could now join him. It is one month now since joined the new school but I am even happy that I am challenging the old students.
Here in we were posing for a photo after the dance. 
We were ready for a dance, Mrs. Susan came to our school and found us training, but finally we were able to win the competitions. We are dressed in dancing costumes.
