Kampala Parents School has yet again marched to a top notch performance in the just-released 2017 Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE), with excited candidates, staff and parents storming the head teacher’s office to check results.
The Naguru-based school owned by tycoon Sudhir Ruparelia registered 197 First Grades out of the 256 candidates who sat for the national exams last year.
The school produced over 50 pupils who scored aggregate Four and Five, with some of the candidates who scored Aggregate Four including Paul Ainemugisha, Paul Bagiire, Imran Kafumbe Shaham, Joel Mathew Songa, Calvin Isaiah Rwakibaale and Emmanuel Ocaya Nyeko.
“I am happy my son has made it to the school of his choice, Buddo (Kings College) and I thank Kampala Parents for providing good and quality education to our children,” said Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Permanent Secretary Vincent Bagiire, the father of Paul Bagire.
Fifty nine (59) pupils passed in second grade, with most candidates performing well in Social Studies (SST).
The school’s Principal Daphine Kato said the teachers are happy because there is an improvement from last year, adding that almost all candidates will be able to join schools of their choice.
“I take any improvement very seriously and therefore we would like to thank our pupils, parents, teachers, Directors and all our stake holders for working together with us towards this success,” Ms. Kato said.
Over the years Kampala Parents School has registered improved performance, and last year it emerged one of the best schools in Kampala District.
The Ministry of Education and Sports in conjunction with the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) today released the 2017 PLE results, with pupils improving in general performance.
