Kakumiro: Kakumiro district has registered a decline in the just-released 2023 PLE results compared to the 2022 PLE results.

Out of the 4,303 registered candidates, 193 passed in division one, 1,901 were in second division, 1,130 came in second division, 495 passed in third division, 495 were in fourth division, 508 came in division U, and 76 did not turn up for exams.

This was revealed by Mary Kyofuna, the Kakumiro District Inspector of Schools, during an official dissemination of Kakumiro district results held at St. Mary’s SS in Kakumiro town council.

According to the district performance sheet, Munsa primary school in Kakumiro town council topped the list of best performers in government-aided schools, followed by Damasiko primary school in Kisiita town council, whereas Kings Way Igayaza emerged the best in private schools, followed by Blessed St. Patrick in Kakindo town council.

Also, Kabuubwa primary school in Kibiijo Sub County emerged as the worst performing school in government schools, whereas St. Helen Nursery and primary school Nalweyo emerged as the worst performing in private schools.

Biryomumisho Faston from Luka Nursery and Primary School in Kisengwe and Nasasira Deus from Blessed Trinity Nalweyo came first with 6 aggregates, followed by Manake Precious from Nkooko primary school with 8 aggregates.

Kyofuna, however, attributed the decline to parents who are not supportive of their children being understaffed in most schools, a lack of preparedness for teaching by most teachers, inadequate funding for UPE schools, and private schools operating illegally, among others.

William Baleke, the Kakumiro District Education Officer, directed the head teachers and teachers to plan for their schools for this coming term, due to start on May 5th this month, saying some have gone off track and denied their responsibilities. He, however, called on parents to lend a supportive hand so as to help the children perform well.

The head teachers of the government-aided schools are pleading for support from parents and other stakeholders.

They further decry the political wing for sabotaging their work by stopping the parents from supporting the schools financially.

Meanwhile, Bugangaizi East was the worst performing with 146 failures, followed by Bugangaizi West with 135 failures and Bugangaizi South with 103.
