Maisha School has emerged among top 2020 PLE performing schools in Bunyoro Sub-region as Uganda National Examination Board released the exams.
The School in the released 2020 P.L.E results, has announced 1 pupil in the first grade and 14 in the second grade.
While celebrating the results, the school Director urged government to scale up online learning to ensure that children continue learning during the current #Covid-19 pandemic or other challenges that could emerge in future. Most public schools in Uganda lack internet facilities and a s such many pupils cannot access learning online..
Mr. Kikomeko says that it’s important for children in both private and public schools to continue learning and that government should support efforts to put the necessary facilities in place
Mr. Kikomeko was speaking after receiving the 2020 PLE results in which candidates who sat from the centre passed in grade one and grade two.
Maisha School was among a few schools that ensured continuous learning through use of online platforms. Mr Kikomeko says that this helped a lot.
“The situation was not so normal but we had to give our best, online lessons helped a lot, because if we had not had them, we could have not had such results. I urge the government to increase efforts and promote E-learning because we do not know when the pandemic will end. E-learning is very helpful and health because both teachers and the pupils stay in their respect homes”
The Director also welcomed the performance of the pupils saying it is remarkable given the tough conditions pupils studied in and sat for the examinations
“The results have been released; the general performance is very good. Given the difficult time, to see our pupils performing like this is really wonderful, we thank God and the parents that really cooperated with us to get this kind of performance”
