Acrobats

Written by Super User. Posted in brassband

 One can say that the Don Bosco – CALM acrobats group is the best youngest group in Uganda. They are very good and they are always showing improvement in the skill they display. It has reached to a point that children will move one or two steps and they somersault and this is always done unconsciously.The department has had an opportunity of taking 15 children in 2009 and in 2010 to Poland where they were able to visit many places but most importantly the children were able to get in touch with some adoption parents from Poland. They met them in churches; they also met children in schools and also in public places. The children were singing during mass and making some performances of acrobats, traditional dances and music from Uganda and many more different items.

 This department awes a lot of thanks to Rev. Fr. Richard Jozwiak for his tireless support. He never hesitates to equip the different sections with the required instruments, machines or items. He is always giving and welcoming ideas which are meant to help the children with Talent discovery and development. He supports the department in all situations at all times. This, I believe, is so because of his Love for the children. Thanks for having a “big fat” heart Fr. Richard, and thanks for extending it to others

Brass Band

Written by Super User. Posted in brassband

There too is the brass band section, which was introduced in the year 2007. This section was started by the then Director, Rev. Fr. Richard Jozwiak who was the only Salesian at the centre together with Joseph Wandera, who was the trainer at the time. It started with 30 bugles and the children used to practice every morning from 6:00am to 7:00am and after mastering, then an opportunity came and the section received 16 flugelhorns, a bass drum and some side drums. The section grew stronger and over the years it has acquired other instruments. Currently it has a number of trumpets, flugelhorns, trombones, tubas, horns, French horn, flutes, clarinets, baritones, euphoniums, side drums, bass drums, cymbals, Saxophone. Thanks to the Salesians at the centre who are looking for all that is required to equip the brass band section with the needed instruments, but more thanks go to all the people who are sacrificing what they have to ensure that the children at Don Bosco – CALM receive these instruments, and are helped to discover and develop their talents. The centre has now developed a brass band, made up of only the children from the centre and once in a while, it is invited to go and entertain people at different functions. Important to note here is that, as the goal of talent discovery and development is being realised, the brass band section does not present itself as the first priority to the children because education is taken as the number one priority for the children as they go through their rehabilitation process before resettlement.
