Despite the eastern region not performing well in the just-released 2017 Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE), candidates of T and M Bright Nursery and Primary School have excelled, emerging the best performers in Manafwa District.
In the results which were released by the Ministry of Education and Sports in conjunction with UNEB, the school got 46 first grades out the 56 who registered, with the rest getting second grade.
According to the T and M Director Michael Tumwa, the success registered is a result of team work among parents, teaching and non-teaching staff and members of the surrounding community.
“The performance is excellent because it reflects an 80% rate so we feel very great because our pupils have done us proud by performing excellently in the district, region and whole country at large,” Mr Tumwa said.
He also lauded the hard work and discipline exhibited by both the teachers and pupils, saying that had enabled them to cover the syllabus in line with national curriculum.
“I urge the parents to take their children to good secondary schools where they can have academic continuity given the back ground that they have acquired,” Mr. Tumwa said, and also urged parents to continue bringing their children to the school to get quality education.
