Releasing the results to the head teachers at Kitumba District headquarters on Tuesday, the chairman Education and Health Kabarole District, Hon. Denis Nkwansibwe, observed that for the last 8years the district has been performing better in Mock and P.L.E but this year there was a big decline.
Nkwansibwe said this year’s performance was very bad with most sub counties getting no first grades.
He however noted that boys had performed better that girls and English was poorly done subject.
Nkwansibwe revealed that “there is still room for improvement but this calls for team work between the head teachers, teachers, pupils and the parents support.”
The Chief Administration Officer Kabarole, Mr. Balaba Dunstan said teachers and parents’ commitment to supporting their children can make better grades in P.L.E.
He asked the head teachers and teachers to double their efforts in this one remaining month of October to ensure the pupils perform well and Kabarole maintains its position of being among the first best performing districts in P.L.E countrywide.
The poor performance of pupils comes in the wake of conflicts between the RDC Mr. Asiimwe Stephen and leaders following the arrest of teachers over holiday teaching.
Rt. Bishop Dr. Robert Muhiirwa Akiiki of Fort Portal diocese and Mr.Rwabuhinga Richard the District chairman accused the RDC’s of arresting teachers saying it undermines the integrity and performance of pupils in P.L.E.
The RDC however maintains that teaching in holidays is a violation of children’s rights to rest.
In the new development, the RDC has strongly warned head teachers planning to provide accommodation for P.7 candidates to carry out intensive revision that it’s illegal and causes insecurity.
He says these schools cannot be allowed to accommodate the pupils because they lack facilities and capacity to feed them noting that unless they get permission from the District Education Officer and other stakeholders they risk arrest.
