An Iranian, Lamin Tavakoli (leftfrom St. Peterâ€™s Nsambya secondary school, topped Kampala district in the 2004 senior four exams.
Lamin was born to an Iranian business couple Muhammad Tavakoli and Fatemeha of Kiwafu zone in Makindye division.
Dr. Pilgrine Kibuuka, the headmaster of the school, said Lamin, who scored aggregate eight, had been a disciplined and sociable student, who excelled right from the first term in senior one.
Kibuuka said, â€œWe expected Lamin to pass but we never expected him to top the district.â€
For the 12 terms Lamin spent at the school, his parents paid fees for only one term because the school offers scholarships to the best two students in each class.
He sat his primary leaving examinations at Nsambya Primary School and got aggregate six.
Kibuuka said, â€œI am pleased that a day school with all its challenges and poor facilitation can perform better than schools normally regarded as heavyweights.â€
