Kampala Parents’ School, one of the best performing schools in the country has yet again shined in 2020 Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) Results released by the Uganda National Examinations Board on Friday.
KPS as it is famously known scored 129 first grades out of the 186 candidates that sat for PLE last year with the majority of the best performers scoring between aggregate 4 and 6.
Speaking after receiving the 2020 PLE Results, the Principal, Ms. Daphine Kato, urged the Government to increase its efforts towards online learning amidst the pandemic that continues to put the education sector on its knees.
“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 healthy because both teachers and the pupils stay in their respective homes,” Ms. Kato said.
At the moment, most public schools in Uganda lack internet facilities, and as such many pupils cannot access learning online following the closure of schools in a move to mitigate coronavirus infections.
The Principal also welcomed the performance of the pupils saying it is remarkable given the tough Covid-19 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.”
