Kampala Parents School Harvests Excellent PLE Results


The continued hard work and dedication of the teachers at Kampala Parents’ School has once again paid off in the Primary Leaving Examinations. The school once again excelled with impressive results as the 2015 PLE results were released on Tuesday.

The Principal of KPS, Mrs. Daphne Kato commended the input of both management – led by Sudhir Ruparelia – and the teachers who worked tirelessly to prepare the pupils for the exam.

Mrs. Kato said, “Dr. Sudhir has provided everything that a child needs to study and excel. We have also got qualified teachers who love what they do. As a school we work together with our teachers, parents and pupils to see that our children do well in and out of class.”

Empowering their academic staff with the right tools is important to KPS management. The school not only aims at recruiting the best teachers but also ensures they evolve with the changing times and adapt to different pupils’ needs.

Mr. James Makanda, the head of Social Studies department emphasized that schools teachers worked hard and finished the syllabus in second term so we used the 3rd term to revise.

“We worked as a team and also carried out continuous assessment meetings to know up with our pupil’s performance trends. We then did revisions with our pupils.” He said.

Kampala Parents managed to attain 178 first grades and 80 second grades (out of 258 pupils). The highest honour, aggregate four was achieved by 02 pupils, while aggregates five, six, seven and eight were attained by 06, 15, 25 and 32 pupils respectively.

However, the staff members feel they cannot rest on their laurels and they’ll need to aim higher for the current calendar year.

“We plan to lay strategies in order to deliver an improved performance. We shall investigate how we shall improve,” said Mr. Leopold Odoi, the deputy Headmaster in charge of Academics.

Makada explained that they want to use the past exams especially last year’s to assess the examination setting technique and tune their pupils to the current examination setting standards.
