KAMPALA - As part of the celebrations of the African Public Service day on Friday, the Ministry of Education and sports has donated scholastic materials  to Kiwanga COU  Primary School pupils in Mukono district.
 
Over  200 pupils  received scholastic materials from the Education Ministry such as exercise books, pencils, pens and pads for the girls in upper primary.
 
The Human resource officer at the Ministry, Joy Tamwesaliza said that this day is celebrated every 23 of June every year world wide but because 23 of this year was falling on a Saturday, it was decided that it be celebrated Friday. 
 
The main celebrations were at Kololo Airstrip.
 
 Tamwesaliza said the products  will help boost the pupils' studying moral because these are the main items needed in school.

‘‘The Education Ministry does not want to see pupils dropping out of school due to lack of  scholastic materials because some parents cannot afford them.
 
"The products we have distributed will be shared amongst all the pupils from baby class to primary seven where every child will get a pencil, a pen and at least two books except the pads which will be given to only  girls in upper primary,'' Tamwesaliza said.
 
The  Deputy head teacher at Kiwanga C.O.U  Primary School, Annet Nandutu said that many pupils  miss lessons because they don't have pencils, pens or books which affects their performance.
 
She says that more so for the girls who have started their menstruation periods, hinders them when it comes to attending classes because they don't pads to use.
 
Tamwesaliza added that 100 dozens of books, 50 dozens of pencils, 3 boxes of sanitary towels and four boxes of pencils were distributed to the pupils.
