Ivan’s visit to the UK in June 2019

School Visits and more Class Twinning Projects exchanged.

This year has been another busy and successful visit, particularly with our supporter schools.

The new programme of the Schools Class Twinning project saw the first exchange of themed projects between four classes in the Revival Primary School and one class from Revival Grammar School and four local primary school classes and one local grammar school class. The standard of work that was exchanged was really excellent and the children were thrilled to receive them.

Visiting the Brotherton Library

A big part of the visit involves Bishop Ivan sharing with the trustees about the current challenges and opportunities faced by The Revival Centre, and out of this we make a Partnership Plan for the year ahead. On the last Saturday of the visit Bishop Ivan and the trustees went to Scargill House Retreat Centre at Kettlewell for a time of reflection and prayer around these plans.

The Partnership Plan for 2019/20 

 
Site issues 
Funds are needed for:
  • A new toilet for the newly relocated nursery.
  • Repairs to the generator and old solar panels.
  • A fence around the newly constructed sports field and some sports equipment.
  • (And then THE BIG ONE)  which is to COMPLETE THE SECONDARY CLASSROOM BLOCK. 
A plan was also approved for the Revival Church to move to the top of the site; this will free up additional space for the Primary School and removes any Safeguarding concerns that the council may have had, and importantly gives the church an opportunity to grow and better reach out into the community.
 

Scholarship Fund.

This fund was launched two years ago and this year marks the third year we have been able to award the scholarship to a young adult so they can engage in university based learning. The A Level standards have risen across the board as champions reach for the prize of a University place. We are now also looking at ways to help others who are less academically minded, when they leave school. We are exploring options such as apprenticeships, vocational courses, or ‘start up grants.The cost of these is around £300 per year compared to £1800 for a university place.

 
Champions support programme

We are always in discussion with Bishop Ivan and Madam Allen to identify areas where there is room for improvement and the costs of these: this year we are focusing on welfare needs such as diet and educational content through looking at how we can support the teachers with teaching aids and training courses. 
 

Sustainability

We are working hard with Madam Allen on the investment provided for Gombe farm to make it self-sustaining and then bring in extra income locally for Revival Centre.
The gift of a Maize Mill by the charity EFOD is underway and should be on stream in 2020 and this will then bring in an income. Revival Centre has a plan to attract more ‘fee paying’ students to increase their income.

 
GACAH needs more supporters / income

• Do you have any community, school or church contacts that we might reach out to?
• Could you a) increase your gift to GACAH by 10% to help keep up with inflation?
Or b) consider a ‘one off gift’ towards one of our projects, the classroom block or the scholarship fund
Or c) bring some skills to help the Trustees?

Lastly none of this would have been possible without your help so a big

Thank You

 
Revival News is all about the working of the Partnership between GACAH and the Revival Centre.

News from the Revival Centre from the desk of Madam Allen Ssekindi Champions Coordinator and Director of Revival Centre

 

 


Children’s Act Conference

On the 17th of July 2018, Derek, one of our very own champions at Revival, beat all the odds to join a prestigious meeting in Kampala’s Golf Hotel.
The Uganda Human Rights Commission in conjunction with United Nations Children’s Education Fund (UNICEF) launched the findings on the compatibility of Ugandan Legislation with the convention on the rights of the Ugandan Child. This was an extremely important gathering in a prestigious Hotel where Ministers, Members of Parliament, the international community and other Non-governmental organisations, among others, met to discuss the findings of the Report.
Derek who has recently joined Senior 1 Class was chosen to discuss the plight of children in Uganda. In his submission, Derek thanked Revival Centre for supporting the vulnerable children in Uganda without whose support many hundreds of children would never have attained any education. He advised the congregation to always help those who are in need, as well as people with disability.
After all the presentations and discussions, Derek signed the newly launched report. He did this on behalf of Ugandan Children as a way of affirming that findings of the report are a true representation of the current situation on the rights of children in Uganda. This was a wonderful moment seeing a Champion standing shoulder to shoulder with so many important people in this country to support the launch.

The Panelists: Derek( L), Dr. Zahara (M)  from the School of Law, Makerere University  and Mr. Mujuni (R) From Ministry of Gender, Labor and Social Development

 

Note from the Trustees

After the conference the Revival Centre felt it was appropriate to reiterate the importance of child safeguarding at the Centre. The Directors of the Revival Centre have given clear instructions to the teachers, and both teachers and parents have now received direct briefings on the requirements of the new law by the Ugandan Human Rights Commission. 
Within Uganda, the Revival Centre is seen as a front-runner in implementing the new law.

 

 

Revival Grammar Gets a face lift

 

When you visit Revival Grammar School today you may think you are somewhere else and not in Matugga. The school has been painted with white and black squares just like the new ‘O’ level Uniform. The new block looks really smart. As you enter the gate there is a welcome note which tells you where you are “Revival Group of Schools”. When the gate is rolled way, your eyes will  not miss the nice patterns on the new block. You will not miss the beautiful flower garden. It is our New Look!
The walk way has gravel layers of stones to protect the students from the mud which is churned up when it rains. This has not only excited the student community but it is likely to attract more students. We are forever grateful to our partners in the UK for the partnership and support.

Revival schools new Mini bus

 

The Revival Centre has recently acquired a bus to pick up and drop off the day scholars to and from school. This was acquired after making a good exchange with the school’s old van. The owner of the bus expects the Revival Centre pay for the bus over a period of three terms. (one installment per term) The bus which was driven through the gates of Revival Centre already branded, brought a lot of joy and excitement to the children. It is not a new Bus but it is believed that it will serve the purpose for which it was acquired. In addition to the daily bus run for scholars, the bus will also take students for educational tours and trips rather than having to hire mini buses or taxis for the purpose.

Our “new” school bus!

 

 

Revival goes Solar

 

A new Solar Panel has been installed thanks to Mrs Crossley, head of Moorfield School, Ilkley. On her retirement the staff presented her with a gift to be used in Matugga, a project she has supported for many years. Additional money was raised by the staff and pupils at a number of school events. This gift has enabled us to purchase a ‘double panel’ installation which has been put on the new secondary classroom block. “This time we shall pass highly” (they mean passing their exams) some of the boys were heard saying. You should have seen the excitement from the Boys dormitory when the solar lights in the Senior 1 and Senior 5 – Senior 6 dormitories were switched on. A security light has been installed to cater for the extra dormitory which did not benefit from the solar installation.
A big thank you to Moorfield School for this wonderful gift.
