Mengo Senior School is dedicated to developing the total person mentally, physically, socially and spiritually. In addition to daily scheduled classes a variety of activities such as games, clubs and societies are offered to the students.
The overall rationale of these clubs and societies is to help to develop optimally sharp persons.
• To foster friendly relationships among the wide cross section of the school population.
• To expose students to an extensive variety of sporting, academic and service club activities.
• To instill a sense of belonging to a formal social group, while aiding the development of leadership skills and attitude among all students.
• Preparing students for the wider world so that they will be able to make valuable contributions within and outside their communities.
The School has a number of Clubs and Societies as described below with their current patrons.
The German Club promotes the interest of the language and culture through a more in-depth exploration of the German-speaking culture than what is given in the classroom. The Club normally celebrates the German week during the second term of the school year. While knowledge of German language is an added advantage, it is not a requirement for club membership.
