This year ICT Teachers recently concluded their national capacity development workshop which was held on 6th and 7th May 2019 at Kololo Senior Secondary School, Kampala, with a focus on skilling and tooling the ICT teachers to effectively manage and maintain the school computer laboratories and hands-on in new approaches for curriculum delivery of commonly challenging topics like programming and website design. The workshop was a success due to the great turn up and some support from several sponsors and partners.
The ICT Teachers Association is now organizing several regional workshops as an outreach and follow up on what was shared in Kampala. This is going to make it easier for ICT Teachers within the region to attend since the workshop will be nearer to them.

We just realized that Kyebambe Girls School, which is going to host the Western region ICT Teachers capacity development workshop, has a lot in common, including their common support for ICT innovation and also a shared history that goes back to the 1960s!
When the late Dr. Milton Obote visited Canon Lawrence Primary Teachers College in late 1964, the Administrators of Boroboro Secondary School recommended that the school be named after him. Boroboro Senior secondary school was renamed Dr.Obote College Boroboro with Mr .Ejura Edward as the head master.
In 1966, Western Uganda experienced a strong earth quake that devastated many areas. Kyebambe Girls School in Fort Portal was among the schools greatly affected. The students(girls) from this school were shifted to Dr.Obote College Boroboro and were hosted to 1972 .This forced the already boys’ school to be mixed again.
The Northern Region workshop is going to involve practical sessions in the computer lab as indicated on the tentative program below.
