Candidates preparing for the Primary Leaving Examinations have received encouragement not to feel anxious as they approach these exams, which signify the culmination of their primary education. These words of reassurance were conveyed by Bernard Tumushagye, the head teacher of Kinyasano Boarding Primary School, during a farewell event held at the school in Western Division, Rukungiri Municipality.
Tumushagye emphasized the importance of discipline and continued diligent study for the primary seven candidates. He conveyed that the school had fulfilled its responsibility by imparting knowledge and skills required for success in the exams. Tumushagye also called upon parents to support their children by praying for them and providing any necessary resources for their exams.
Laban Akanyihayo, the director of studies, acknowledged the long journey that the candidates had undertaken from nursery to primary seven. He urged them not to squander any moment and to make the most of the preparation provided by their teachers. Akanyihayo specifically encouraged parents of candidates who are not boarding at the school to ensure they have ample time for revision, similar to the students in the boarding section, to achieve excellent results.
Kyasimire Allen and James Arineitwe, both primary seven pupils and holding the positions of head girl and head boy, expressed their readiness for the upcoming examinations. They stated their commitment to thorough preparation and a strong desire to outperform the previous 2022 candidates who achieved 91 candidates in division 1. The students noted that they had completed their syllabus and were currently focused on revision to secure high scores in the Primary Leaving Examinations, scheduled for the following month.
In total, 121 pupils will be taking the Primary Leaving Examinations at Kinyasano Boarding Primary School, which has an enrollment of 1444 pupils.
