The first full “Old Budonians” were 19 boys that had completed the planned three year course in 1908. By the end of the 1910, there were 39 Old Budonians. In 1908 Henry, Walter Weatherhead thought the school had come a long way in a short time but knew that there was much more to be done and chose a school motto accordingly.
In 1908, Weatherhead invited the director of the Uganda Company, Mr. Barbour, to talk to the boys. He told them about the progress of South Africa and the work of Cecil Rhodes, quoting Rhode’s famous phrase, “ So little done, so much TO DO”
The boys were so taken by this motion that they set themselves to find the Luganda equivalent. After a while, one of them brought to Weatherhead the proverb Gakyali Mabaga.
