NO... it’s not true; I cant be number one… No..No..No. Mum, they are lying,” bellowed Hilda Akech as she broke down into tears, pouring the rice she was initially sorting for supper when she received the news that she was one of the best students in the Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE).

NO... it’s not true; I cant be number one… No..No..No. Mum, they are lying,” bellowed Hilda Akech as she broke down into tears, pouring the rice she was initially sorting for supper when she received the news that she was one of the best students in the Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE).
Akech, 13, who was Lugazi Community Primary School’s best and the tenth best in Mukono district, got four aggregates. It took Bacia Beatrice, her mother, about three minutes to calm her down as she turned wild, refusing anyone from getting close to her.
“I made sure I prayed before reading my books when the timetable was out. I am grateful to God for rewarding my sleepless nights handsomely,” Akech said.
She said she wants to go to Mt. St. Mary’s College Namagunga or Nabisunsa Girls’ School. She wants to become a doctor. Nicholas Maombe, Lugazi Community PS deputy headteacher, said Akech was always among the top five students at school.
“She was hardworking and close to the teachers. Akech is the kind of pupil we want here,” he said.

ARNOLD BUGINGO

By Carol Natukunda
Arnold Bugingo’s success was due to hard work.
“He was always revising. Sometimes I would even complain and force him to get a break for once.
“But after playing around for an hour, he would turn back to his books again,” says Bugingo’s father Justus Muhanguzi, the public relations officer of the Human Rights Commission.
Twelve-year-old Bugingo was the third best in Mbarara district with aggregate five. He was also the best at Katatumba Academy, where he had been studying since Primary One.
Bugingo hopes to join St Mary’s College Kisubi. He wants to be an engineer in future.

DOREEN SHIDA

By William Rwebembera
WHEN The New Vision broke the news of her triumph, Doreen Shida was washing plates at home in Kiryatere, as the family prepared to have supper. She almost collapsed!
“Are you sure the results are out? Is it the real name Shida Doreen? Have I been the best? What? Shida of St. Jude or another school? My God! God has heard my prayers,” she said, trembling. She started saying a prayer, thanking God, but did not finish. She then called her mother to the kitchen.
“Mummy, it has been me in the district. Ninyowe (It’s me!),” she cried. They were joined by Doreen’s father, who said, “I expected that. Doreen, don’t you remember us fasting and praying?”
That was how Shida, the best PLE candidate in Hoima district, and her family, received the news.
Shida, 12, who sat for PLE at St. Jude Primary School in Hoima, wants to join Mt. St. Mary’s Namagunga and to become a doctor.

EDNA NANDUTU

By Madinah Tebajjukira
KAMPALA’S third best PLE pupil was in bed resting after housework when The New Vision reached her home in Bugolobi, Luthuli Close.
Thirteen-year-old Edna Nandutu from Greenhill Academy did not expect her stunning performance because she found the exams tough.
Nandutu, who got aggregate four, said mathematics was her favourite subject, although she wants to become a doctor.
A former academics prefect at Greenhill, Nandutu attributed her victory to The New
Vision pullouts, which she said helped her to study the topics that are mainly asked.
Born to Patrick Masambu, an executive engineer with Uganda Communication’s Commission and Florence Masambu, a business operator in town, Nandutu said her pastors also contributed much to her success because they prayed for her and she gained confidence in herself.
