These students received training in the area of church leadership, as well as fellowshipping in the body of Christ. Every church in the area attended the graduation ceremony, even though some of them prevented their people from actually attending the school. 

The LCV [chief executive of the district] of Nwoya, was the main speaker for the program, and was accompanied by his counselors. His speech emphasized the wisdom, work and unity that must come first for each student.  

Each graduate received a Bible along with their graduation certificate. The graduates expressed their sheer joy & pleasure for all the work God has done in their lives to allow them to attend the Bible school.
