RNF holds 3rd annual Academic Excellence Awards
The Rose Namayanja Foundation this week held its third Annual academic excellence awards at St Kizito Lwetunga Primary School in Nakaseke District. The Awards which are aimed at creating competition among government aided schools in Primary Leaving Examinations are also intended to improve the quality of Education in the district.
While officiating at the Awards ceremony, our patron and founder, Hon Rose Namayanja Nsereko called upon parents to join hands with teachers in working towards the educational development of their children, emphasizing that parents shouldn’t neglect the role of education to teachers alone. She was quick to note that the education of a child is the best investment any parent can ever have.
“Don’t undermine your potential to educate your children, these children will not only be of great importance to your family but also to the society. You can educate a child who can become of great importance to this nation in the near future.” She added
She promised to work hand in hand with other district leaders through the Rose Namayanja Foundation in improving the educational standards in the District. She noted that the Foundation will continue to inspire students through talk sessions to enable them excel and succeed in future.
Namayanja thanked the Government of Uganda for the pro-education policies especially the Universal Primary Education (UPE), a thing she said has greatly uplifted and improved the education standards in the District.
On his part, the Nakaseke District Education Officer Mr Batanudde Stephen, thanked the Rose Namayanja Foundation for the initiative of rewarding the best UPE Primary School in Primary Leaving Examination (PLE), a thing he said has not only generated momentum of competition among schools in the district but has also impacted on the district school’s performance in Nakaseke District.
The winners of this year’s edition St Kizito Lwetunga Primary School, received a Trophy and a Bull in addition to the geometry sets handed to Primary Seven candidates.
The ceremony was attended by the District LCV Chairperson, Nakaseke district head teacher’s association members, parents among others.
