School Re-Opening Message From The Head Teacher

It is a pleasure for us to update you about the re-opening of school after COVID-19
lockdown, starting with the candidates i.e. S.4 and S.6.
We have been waiting for this period and have been anxious to avoid a dead year!
We believe we are going to salvage the academic year. We trust that the
government of the Republic of Uganda will come up with a programme for the noncandidate classes too. Such an arrangement is put in place will be made known to you.
In the meantime, we have attempted to avail the required health Standard Opening
Procedures (SOPs) as guided by the COVID-19 task force of the Republic of Uganda.
The inspection team from the Directorate of Education standards, Ministry of
Education and Sports headed by Dr Olive Lunyolo visited us on 08th October 2020.
We scored 88% on their inspection scoreboard, which gives us a green light to
reopen the school. I want to appreciate my team headed by Deputy Headteacher,
(Administration) Mr Ssekiziyivu Edward for working around the clock to satisfy the
inspection team. We are now ready to welcome back the students starting with S.4s
on 14th October and on 15th October for S.6s. Classes will commence on 16th October.
We have had a series of meetings to get us ready.
We wish to thank parents of reporting students for attending our interactive
meetings held on 01st and 02nd October. Requirements for reopening of school were
outlined from here. A circular to that effect was given out.
Upon the improvement of the general health situation in the country, we shall
convene a Parent-Teachers’ meeting.
It has not been all gloom during this time. There were joyous moments for some
members of our fraternity as they walked down the aisle with their partners. These
– Ms Faith Nancy Angom, the school nurse.
– Mr Joseph Senkaali, the Disciplinary Committee head.
– Mr William Mudde Walaga, the Board of Governors’ Chairman.
We wish them happy times in their new state of life.
On a very sad note, we lost our students. They are:-
– Arnold Mutebi S.2. He died as a result of long-standing cardiac complications.
– Justine Nabuuma S.3. She died after surgery to operate a tumour that had
developed near the brain.
– Our second nurse, Ms Kia Nancy lost her Dad.
May the souls of the deceased rest in eternal peace. Amen
We continue staying safe as we fight to keep COVID-19 away.
