Holy Cross Lake view wins the 2024 green schools debate championship for Busoga region

Owing to our renowned legacy in the art of persuasion and eloquence, there was no question that Holy Cross would emerge victorious in this year’s Green Schools Debate Championship that took place on Monday, 24th June, 2024 at Jinja College.

After several spirited debate rounds throughout the day, Holy Cross Lake View SSS, Wanyange emerged champions after winning all the seven rounds to reign supreme over the other Busoga Schools.
It should be noted that Green Schools Championship is an annual climate change campaign launched to sensitize the public about climate change adaptation and mitigation measures using the school system as the entry point.

Funded by the Embassy of Sweden in Uganda, Vision Group is implementing the Green Schools project in partnership with the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO- Uganda).

After winning the Regional Debate Championship, Holy Cross Lake View will be joined by Iganga SS and Busoga College Mwiri which finished in the second and third positions respectively to represent Busoga Sub-region in this year’s forthcoming National Championship that will take place at Kololo Secondary School in August.

Our resounding victory in Regional Debate Championship not only showcases the exceptional talents within our school community but also underscores the school’s unwavering dedication and commitment to implementing the Church’s call to care for creation through the Laudato Si Club at Holy Cross under the Laudato Youth Initiative whose mission is to Unite Young People for Climate Action.

We have no doubt that the values and programs this initiative nurtures makes our students true witnesses who amplify voices for creation and embody the values of creation care to preserve Mother Earth in whatever activity our students participate.
As our students prepare to represent the school at the National level, they are filled with an enormous sense of determination and enthusiasm to uphold the legacy of excellence in debate that apparently defines Holy Cross Lake View in the world of debate.
