Winfred is a mother of one and a practicing Advocate of the High Court of Uganda. She bought into the project for 2 reasons, first, to see a school that will offer an all round experience to prepare her child for whatever the world will throw at her. Secondly, a pocket friendly school that is abreast with the economic realities of the day but also all encompassing of what is expected of an International school.
