In 1963, the College Chapel was built (Brother Felix was instrumental in the construction work). In the photo (a) is the Chapel after completion; (b) the plan of the Chapel and (c) the Chapel at foundation.

The Chancery Building at Lubaga was actually a class block for St. Mary's School. It was given a facelift, but inside, it still has features of the old architecture.

This is how the current Chancery Building used to look like when it was a class block for St. Mary's School before it was given a facelift.
Semanobe on the left and company played a very active role at SMACK when Brother Kafeero was Headmaster.

In the photo on the left is Father Achte and Father Moullec on right. These played very active roles in the early stages of St. Mary's School. Reverend Father Achte was by then the Provicar who was then Superior of Rubaga Parish.

Hon. Sebaana Kizito while Member of Parliament in 1983, intervened and raised the issue in Parliament when Bro. Kafeero who was Headmaster had been given matching by the Obote Government to leave Uganda. Next to him is Mr. Semanobe who raised good money that helped Brother Kafeero pay fees for relatives he was caring for that time.

When Brother Kafeero was expelled from Uganda, 24 hours before the D-Day of the 75 years’ Celebrations for SMACK, it was the Late Mr, Moro, Managing Director of Stirling, Honourable Ssebaana Kizito, Mr Ssemanobe (Operation’s Manager, Uganda General Merchandise Ltd), who fundraised Kenya Shillings 20,000 which helped him to pay the fees for his sister and 7 nieces and nephews, whom he used to support through offering his services as a teacher in various schools. After meeting the fees, the balance of the money helped him start off life as a refugee in Kenya.

President Museveni visited SMACK in 1987 when Brother Tinkasimire on the right was Headmaster and Hon. Ssemogerere was Minister..

Stanislaus Mugwanya (a Buganda Regent) while addressing a meeting of the Catholic Chiefs, held at the beginning of 1899, put a question before them: Don‘t you think the time has come for us to provide our young Catholics with better schooling than that which they have so far received?
