SECONDARY schools that enrolled over 400 students for Senior One under the Universal Secondary School (USE) programme will get more classroom blocks. Gabriel Opio, the Minister of State for Higher Education, said the project would be implemented before February next year.

Addressing parents and students of Lumino High School in Busia during the school’s sliver jubilee celebrations recently, Opio said the move follows complaints that USE schools lacked classrooms to accommodate the high number of students.

He said the Government was ready to provide secondary schools with laboratories to promote the teaching of sciences.

“The construction unit of the ministry is moving to all schools in the country to assess laboratories,” he said.
Opio said buildings that will be found to be strong will be completed and equipped.

Yusuf Nsubuga, the commissioner in charge of higher education, said there was a shortage of scientists in the country, including science teachers.
He urged teachers to emphasise the teaching of sciences and also encourage students to take them up.
