MPIGI - Mpigi District Education Officer (DEO), Deogratious Ssekyole has asked the Ministry of Education and sports to distribute more learning materials to the district saying the consignment delivered to the district were few.

Ssekyole who was dispatching Primary school home study materials and Parent's boosters at the education department office said there is a need for more study materials to cater for many students from different households in the district.

"We don't know how we are going to distribute the few packs we received to all the learners in the community. We, therefore, appeal for more educational materials to the district" Ssekyole said.

He gave an example of the home study materials for Advanced-Level which he said were few. "We received only 27 pieces for A-level to distributed among different households in the district," he revealed.

Education and sports minister Janet Museveni had earlier noted that the ministry embarked on the campaign to distribute home study materials and test examinations across the whole country to help keep the learners busy through this hard period of the COVID-19 lockdown. 

The materials are delivered through the offices of Resident District Commissioners (RDC) who then distribute the materials to sub-counties, then to parishes and finally to different households in communities. 

 
Last week, Mpigi district received these learning materials for both primary and secondary schools which were received by the office of the RDC. 

Receiving the materials, Mpigi deputy RDC Hellen Nsereko, said they were very few compared to the number of learners in the district. 

According to Ssekyole, they have talked to some schools and sub-county chiefs and have agreed to make more copies through photocopying.
