A Bright Future for Bishop McAllister Graduates

By  Gisele McKnight

The arrival of 200 new students at Bishop McAllister College in Kyogyera, Uganda has been both a blessing and a complication for the Rev. Canon Paul Jeffries, diocesan native and the school’s rector.

“I was in a panic over the new numbers!” said Paul. “Did we have enough beds, enough desks?”

Paul just spent six weeks in Canada, his bi-annual trip back home to connect with supporters and visit family and friends. He visited both Saskatchewan and New Brunswick and returned to Uganda in late September.

The rise in the student population came about when the school decided to place an ad in the newspaper congratulating the staff and students on another successful year.

They usually choose the humble route, said Paul, but during a visit from a female member of parliament, she asked why they were keeping such a great school a secret. The response — buy an ad. The result — a 20 per cent increase in students!
