By Aggrey Twesigye
President Museveni is yet to fulfill the 3.3billion shillings pledge to Kashaka Girls Secondary School for the construction of a science laboratory.
Jolly Kabigumira Natukunda, the headmistress Kashaka Girls Secondary School says that in 2015, President Museveni who was the guest of honor during the school’s fundraising to construct a science laboratory pledged money to help in the construction of the science laboratory.
Kabigumira says that the school management has waited for the pledge to be fulfilled but all in vain.
She says as a result, the teaching of science practical’s are done in two rooms shared by 18 streams which makes time tabling very difficult.
According to Kabigumira, failure of the school to own decent accommodation has made it difficult to accommodate the appealing number of learners.
Sarah Mateke Nyirabashitsi the Minister of State for Youth and Children affairs who officiated at the school’s thanks giving ceremony on Saturday, said that she will table the demands before the government to see if it can be possible for the pledge to be fulfilled.
With an enrollment of 1162 learners, Kashaka Girls Secondary School is a purely girls boarding school that was started by the church of Uganda in 1985.
