11th September, 2019, will be a day to remember for most staff members; teaching and non-teaching, that have enjoyed working with Mrs. Victoria. S. Kisarale a.k.a Kisa, the out-going Headmistress. The farewell started with a service led by Rev. Moses Kakembo from Kungu Parish, Namirembe Diocese who preached about change as a factor of life and encouraged Kisa to embrace it whole heartedly. The service was also graced by the team from B.O.G led by the Chairman, Mrs. Sarah Barbara Mayanja, who happen to be Kisa\’s classmate from G.H.S. She thanked God for the service of Kisa to Gayaza High School and conveyed the B.O.G befitting gift of a car.
It was an emotional moment seeing one of our own leaving as the non-teaching representative Betty put it her speech. She has seen Kisa grow as a teacher, Deputy Headteacher finally a Headmitress and she thanked her for having a good and forgiving heart. She always kept her office open to all who wanted to talk to her. She will be missed by the whole team and wished her all the best in her new life after Gayaza High School.
The teaching staff speech was read by Mr. Enock Kibuka, who thanked Kisa for nurturing, supporting and being a parent figure to many of the teachers around. Her steadfast attitude and excellence laid a firm a foundation to many. Although some were scolded at times but they were pampered in equal measure said Enock
The non teaching technical staff that includes the bursar\’s office and secretaries were represented by Mrs. Phoebe Lwere who has worked with Kisa since she joined the school as a deputy Headteacher in 1998. She thanked Kisa for always putting them to order whenever they went astray. She quoted Kisa in her usual rhetorics\” Omulimo gwe mama, gwe tata, sisagira kumulimo\” literally meaning \”The job is like your Mother, your Dad, I never play around with it\” and indeed Kisa never took her job lightly. She always took her work seriously and was always punctual leading by example.
In her remarks Kisa who was flanked by her family wondered how she has managed to carry on for all that time but thanked God for seeing her through. After handover she felt like an S.6 student who had just finished her exams. She referred everyone to her farewell message in the end of term 2 Newsletter.
The day ended with a luncheon where those who had parting words were given an opportunity to speak and one by one praised Kisa for having a big heart that accommodated everyone.
We wish you well in your next endeavours Kisa. Never Give Up
