29th June 2012 is SMACK Founder's Day. It will be remembered that on June 29, 1906, Father Raux Modeste was appointed Headmaster of St. Mary's School, hence becoming its Founder. This followed the resolution made by the Council of the White Fathers' Congregation officially deciding upon setting up a regular English School and financial support was given to start it in the capital town of Uganda (Rubaga) where young men from catholic families would be given sufficient education to enable them compete fairly well for important appointments of responsibility introduced by the Protectorate Government.
On the occasion of celebrating SMACK Founder's day, it is great to note that many Old Boys of St. Mary's College have lived to the expectations of the Founder and the White Fathers' Congregation.
