Caretaker Bishop Tugume calls on teachers to love their profession


Teachers have been encouraged to use their profession in changing lifestyles of students rather than being money oriented if they are to get blessing from God.

The call was made by the caretaker Bishop North kigezi Diocese Rt. Rev. Patrick Tugume Tusingwire while preaching during the fundraising function towards completion of the four classrooms and six staff quarter’s block of Rwabukoba Senior Secondary School a function held at School premises in Ruhinda Sub County, Rukungiri district.

While preaching during the service, Bishop Tugume narrated that teachers should not be money oriented but rather use their profession to sharpen the brains of students and money comes later as a result of effort rendered.

Bishop Tugume said that when teachers are money oriented, they miss out on what the students or pupils should be, especially on the academic side.


On the other hand, Bishop Tugume urged school administrators to always consider bills of quantity especially during the construction of such projects if they want to avoid shoddy and substandard work.

He said that all school administrators should aim at quality work adding that this will help for such buildings to last longer.

Bishop Tugume however called on Rwabukoba Senior Secondary school students to concentrate on their books, be disciplined and allow Jesus to be part of their lives for them to be successful academically.
