President Museveni has said that quality education is directly associated with the quality of facilities a school has.

The Construction of the new multimillion administration block started in June 2012 under a project codenamed ‘Tuzimbe project’.

The project forms part of the school’s strategic plan 2014, decease designed to provide the best administrative, academic, sports and leisure environment for the students, teachers and the non-teaching staff.

In his speech, the President applauded the school administration and all the stake holders for the concerted effort in resource mobilization, towards the construction of the administration block.

He said it was the mandate and pride of the NRM government to support education for all citizens because of its contribution to the development of the human resource.

“The Government is committed to the proper functioning of both the Universal Primary and Secondary Education. Contrary to the idle talk of pessimists and detractors, these two educational programs are progressing well and are crucial to the prosperity of our nation,” he stressed.

Museveni challenged the students of Kings College Buddo to emulate the good example of the gallant alumni of the school who have excelled in life.

The State Minister for Primary Education J.C Miyingo re-affirmed government’s commitment to provide quality education to Ugandans.

‘In Uganda today, we have a much more committed teaching staff that gets salary by the 28th of the month,” Miyingo said, adding that resources have been provided to step up school monitoring and supervision.

He also called upon schools to develop a culture of repairing and maintaining school buildings.

The function was also attended by the former Prime Minister Professor Apollo Nsibambi.
