I feel extremely delighted and honoured to write about Immaculate Heart Nyakibale Girls` School at this time of great development. I am particularly grateful to the founding bodies, the stake holders and in particular the NRM government for the favourable atmosphere which has so far facilitated the growth and expansion of this school to become a strong and admirable educational institution in the country.
Immaculate Heart has a history to sing about. The school has a beginning and the determination to continues aiming at higher horizons as the school Moto suggests ( AIM HIGHER, THE SKY IS THE LIMIT). Immaculate Heart has unfolded and bloomed, it has growth in numbers, infrastructure, discipline and academic excellence.
The school which started with with 40 students now has more that 1900 students.
In terms of academics , the school is among the national academic giant schools. Since her inception the school began its its academic race with a ‘no turning back ‘vow. Immaculate Heart a school with rural setting, then began by favourably competing with other giant schools in the country and won fame by performing wonderfully well. Most of her products have joined Universities in Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and U.S.A, while others have gone to different Institutions of higher learning.
At Ordinary Level, first grade scores which were minimal started shooting up till date. And from its birth to date Immaculate Heart has consistently gone up the academic ladder.
In terms of infrastructure, the school has put in place a number of classrooms, dormitories, Science Laboratories ,Class Rooms, Game Courts and Grounds, Surveillance Systems is currently constructing the four storryled structure comprising of classrooms, Library and a multipurpose hall and home management lab.
The discipline of the students of Immaculate Heart is unbeatable. This has become the foundation of all the achievements the school has witnessed. The cooperation, dedication and unity of the staff members both teaching and support is amazingly strong. There is no reason why Immaculate Heart would fail to bear the kind of good results. Immaculate Heart has won the favour of most people, is a central educational institution and the pride of Rukungiri District.
The reputation of Immaculate heart should never be taken for granted by anybody. There lies strong movers behind this great harvest. Different people have planned and toiled. Brains of different personalities have combined to bring about such development in the school. Such personalities stand at the centre stage of this growth and their direct and indirect contribution should never be by passed. Rather, it should be appreciated and upheld so that the school grows greater and if possible becomes the greatest because Immaculate Heart is on a journey whose destination is not yet realised.
I am particularly grateful to the entire staff of Immaculate Heart whose tireless efforts is immeasurable . I can never forget to thank the students and the student leaders whose cooperation and determination make them exemplary in word and deed.
Immaculate Heart as a school will live to remember the great contribution by the past and present Board of Governors, former school administrators, the PTA and the entire Executive spearheaded by the chairman Mr. Peter Kagumaho. To parents and all the well-wishers of this school, I say thank you very much for shaping Immaculate Heart to become a liberation centre for girls and training for the future leaders of Uganda.
I wish to extend special thanks to the Ministry of Education for the great support extended to this school. In this regard Immaculate Heart is particularly grateful to the current education Minister and her predecessors.
In addition, I wish to appreciate the great contribution made by foundation board led by Bishop of Kabale Diocese Bishop Calist Rubaramira and the minster of education and sports and all stake holders.
