Celebrations engulfed Kampala Parents School as pupils, parents, teachers and school support staff unpacked 2018 Primary Leaving Examination released Thursday in Kampala by Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) and Ministry of Education and Sports.
The leafy school located in Naguru had all their 234 Primary Seven 2018 candidates pass in first grade; which is a 100 percent performance. This is a much better performance as compared to 2017 when only 200 pupils out of 270 passed in first grade. The rest were in second grade.
Daphne Kato, the school’s Principal attributed the good performance hard work, a good relationship with parents and God’s blessings. “This performance, if you are to make it, you have to make sure you work hand in hand with the parents,”
“You have to make sure that you have a strong team of teachers. And the most important thing is to make sure that the facilities are in place. You have always seen our school, there is isn’t anything that is not available here. Our directors have provided whatever is required for pupils to excel.” Kato said.
Atukunda Michelle, who got aggregate five thanked God for what the Almighty had done for her while her mother Tina Bwesigye thanked the school for putting in a lot of effort ‘to make sure that the children excel,’
“I want to thank my daughter, she put in a lot of effort. I helped her but she was also listening to me.” Bwesigye said of her exceling daughter.
Nandutu Alisa, with six aggregate was a bit unpleased because she expected to score four, nonetheless she thanked ‘God for the aggregates that I got’.
