Uganda Cabinet Resolves School reopening for Sub candidate Classes
Uganda Cabinet has resolved that schools reopen for sub candidate classes in order to complete the academic year.
This has been revealed by Dennis Katungi, a communication and media manager at Uganda Media Center while reading the Cabinet resolution report at the center today.
The cabinet said in order to complete the academic year and ensure progression, the semi- candidate classes (P6, S3 and S5) should report back to school in the short term and study in shifts where necessary with the candidate classes.
For the classes studying in shifts, Teachers will be guided to work through the home-schooling materials with a view of explaining and clarifying concepts and correcting self-study work done by learners at home.
Given that PLE will be completed on 31st March, 2021 and UCE on 6th April, 2021, the Cabinet noted that there will be more space in schools, when candidates leave.
This will enable the other classes to report back and study to complement homeschooling.
The Leadership of the Ministries of: Education and Sports; and Health will undertake a countrywide tour of schools and Institutions to ascertain their preparedness to reopen for non-candidate classes.
President Museveni is reportedly going to reveal the reporting date for these classes tomorrow
