On November 23rd Potentiam Youth Development Centre proudly graduated more than 60 students. They included the second round of the core course in applied business skills (8 graduates) as well as the 5th, 6th and 7th rounds of short courses in basic ICT (35 graduates) and English (19 graduates). The students celebrated their success together with their parents and friends, the PYC staff, their mentors, local authorities and other guests of honor during an entertaining and varied programme.

The certificates were handed over by Fontes program coordinator Apiyo Oweka-Laboke and the mayor of Makindye division Dr. Ian Clarke.

After an exciting performance of traditional Acholi arakaraka and Kiganda dance and an amusing role play by the Fontes Cultural Troupe, centre manager Surea Njuki and Fontes Foundation’s program coordinator Apiyo Oweka presented the certificates to the proud students. Special gifts were handed over to the best students of the different courses as well as to the core course students who performed the best in terms of time keeping, attendance and personal development.

Fontes Foundation is very happy to announce that all the core course students that participated in the course to its completion were able to successfully pass the final exams. In this full-time course of six month duration, the results were quite satisfying with no student scoring beneath 64 % for their final mark.

Fontes congratulates all of our students on their great achievements and wishes all the best for their professional future. Now the team of Potentiam Youth Centre is looking forward to welcoming the new students for the start of the next core and short courses in the beginning of January 2014.
