Kampala Parents School has once again emerged among top 2020 PLE performing schools in the country as Uganda National Examination Board released the exams.
The School in the released 2020 P.L.E results, has announced 129 pupils in the first grade o out of 186 with majority of the pupils in the glorious range of 4-6 aggregates.
While celebrating the results, the school Principal Kato 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.
Ms Kato further 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
Kato was speaking after receiving the 2020 PLE results in which 129 out of 186 candidates who sat from the centre passed in grade one with grades ranging between 4 to 6.
Kampala Parents School was among a few schools that ensured continuous learning through use of online platforms. Kato 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 principal 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”
UNEB released the results today of the 2020 Primary Living Examination and a total of 749,761 candidates, 395,855 (53 per cent) females and 353,957 males (47 per cent) registered for PLE from 14,300 centres.
