Parents have been urged to educate and support their children in school in order to excel.


“Times have changed and parents are busy with work, do not spend time with their children and never follow up their academic performance at school,” Commissioner Youth and children affairs; Mondo Kyateka said.

Kyateka said failure to follow up children’s academic performance makes the children relax resulting into poor academic performance.

“The time parents spend with their children is important in nurturing them. If a parent does not play the parenting role then they do not deserve to be called parents,” he said.

Kyaketa was speaking during a thanks giving and warding ceremony of pupils who excelled in the recently released primary living examination at Kwagalakwe day and boarding primary school in Mukono on Tuesday January 20th .

Chairman Parent’s Teacher’s Association (PTA) at the school, Richard Mubiru said the major problem the country is grappling with is mediocrity and lack of people with character.

“Today we stand here to celebrate success because the school administration has been committed to supervising the teachers to ensure the pupils are taught and nurtured into good character,” Mubiru said

He urged government to enhance supervision especially in the education sector in order to realize excellence.

Reverend Canon Samuel Waiswa who led the service advised pupils to respect their parents, work hard and choose the right friends.

“It is always good to have friends who are better than you. You should remain extra-ordinary people because it is what the world is looking for,” Waiswa said.

As part of the thanks giving ceremony activities, the pupils who emerged best with aggregate four were given prizes. These included: John Fisher Lubowa,  Samuel Tendo and Timothy Ojakol. The rest of the pupils were given awarded leaver’s certificates.

The principal director of the school, Jonathan Ntulume Kabooba attributed the good performance to strict monitoring of the children’s academic performance.

“Some children come from well to do families are not keen about studies and when you give them liberty they do not excel,” Ntulume said.

Kwagalakwe day and boarding primary school emerged first in Mukono municipality, second in Mukono district next to Namagunga boarding primary school and the 35th in the whole country.
