By Allan Turyaguma in Mbarara Miriam Nakanwagi and Sheila Ndibwami will study for free if they return to Maryhill High School in Mbarara district for ‘A’ level, thanks to their good brains. Both Nakanwagi and Ndibwami scored aggregate nine in eight subjects. They emerged the best performing students in western Uganda, according to the UCE results released by UNEB last Tuesday. Mrs Euphrasia Bagambaki, the headteacher told Education Vision, last Thursday that as a way of encouraging other students to work hard, the school will pay for the two best students provided they go back to Maryhill for Senior Five. Bagambaki said that Nakanwagi’s mother, Mrs Sylvia Kiwanuka, always had problems in raising school fees for her daughter. Kiwanuka is a tailor in Bukoto, a Kampala suburb. “The school has been contributing towards Nakanwagi’s school fees. Now that she has performed excellently all her school fees requirements will be catered for,” she said. Bagambaki said that Maryhill High School has ambitions of producing the best student in the whole country and that they have hopes of achieving their goal soon. Ntare School which is also renown in the area for producing the best students in both ‘O’ and ‘A’ levels, this year produced the fourth best student. Mbarara high school produced the third best candidate in the district. Parents and teachers of Ntare attributed the decline in academic performance to the violent strike students staged days before their exams. ends
