Early this year Madam Beatrice asked the BoG of the school to allow her step down so that she could get time to concentrate on her studies. The request was granted and after a daylong interviews, the Bog settled on Brother Charles Lwanga Mugisa BSCL, a brother in the Congregation of St. Charles Lwanga. Find here below his profile. Read and get a glimpse of his many years of experience as an administrator.

I thank God who in His opportune time has granted me time and chance to come and share what He has already instructed me all the years with the Children, staff, stake holders and entire St. Als family.
I feel privileged to have been allowed to serve this school as its Principal to bring to board the vast experience that God has so far granted me.
As a trained teacher for the special needs and from a teaching Congregation that caters for the youth and the less fortunate it is my prayer that a lot will be achieved together with the staff that is so dedicated and an able Board of management. I would like to add my effort to uphold the good work already done and strive ahead for even better performance in future. With the efforts of the fundraisers and the donors who willingly extend their kind hand to our request with almost 100%, It is our turn as staff to also encourage our students at whatever it takes to also work extremely very hard to produce results of 100% or there about.
I want to believe with all the well equipped libraries and laboratories of Science and IT we shall not go wrong.
All this for the Greater Glory of God.
Bro. Charles Lwanga Mugisa BSCL.

My Time at St. Al's
Written by Gonzaga
Wednesday, 28 March 2012 08:23
My name is Ewa and my 3-month experience at St. Al's has been a fruitful one. I have had many opportunities to serve and learn at the same time. Back in Poland I studied computer science, so I wanted to give the students my best from what I have been learning. I could also help with other small things like the website, work in the computer lab, or typing. But the thing I came to love the most, during this short stay at the school, is my work with the graduates. From January to June the graduates undergo a six month community service program and do voluntary work in various organizations, mainly in Kibera. I not only had the chance to take care of a small reflection group, but also to visit many of the graduates at work, go for home visits with them and share a few valuable moments. I have been inspired by many stories of a new chance that has been given to kids from the slums, but also many declarations that this chance will not be taken for granted and will be carefully crafted into the fulfillment of their dreams.
