Congratulations to everyone in P7 at Kafuro Primary School who took their PLE (Primary Leaving Examinations) at the beginning of the summer. Mr Thembo contacted me to say that there was a 100% pass rate this year. Despite the challenges of lockdown due to Covid, when the P7 pupils were able to return to school, they were able to access small focused group teaching as they were the only year group allowed back into the school at the time. Congratulations to all of the pupils and to the staff.
Unfortunately, all schools in Uganda are still closed at the moment due to lockdown. The news I have been given suggests that schools will not reopen until such a time as all teachers are fully vaccinated. The UK is doing its bit to help with this.
