KABALE – Kigezi High School old students have embarked on a campaign to improve the school’s performance by boosting staff capacity.
According to the Chairperson of the old students, Alfred Kabuchu the school’s performance has not been a pleasing one recently but with combined efforts they will be able to improve it.
“We believe that if all stakeholders got on board for the glory of our school, something desirable would be realised sooner than later,” he said.
These old students took the school staff through a capacity building workshop on Saturday at Jopfan hotel in Kabale municipality.
Kabuchu said that the workshop was aimed at equipping staff members with modern skills of efficient teaching.
“A lot has changed in the education sector of late so there is always need for more training to make teachers updated in their working,” he added.
While addressing teachers during the workshop, Frank Katubeho a trainer from Training and Learning Consults asked them to focus on results by setting realistic targets.
“It is useless for you to go to class and teach then at the end of the day your students fail to excel. Set targets to achieve as you teach and then when you make it, your labour will not be in vain,” he said.
Katubeho added that Kigezi High School has the potential of performing better if staff members appreciated the existing resources in the school.
“Your school has a lot of desirable resources which once put to good use can ensure real results,” said Katubeho.
Laban Zaribugyire, the school’s Parents Teachers Association (PTA) chairperson said that they wish to see the school getting back on the right track.
“Our school is one of those that at one time shook the region academically but recently we were not performing well though we are hopeful that with such interventions better results will be realised,” said Zaribugyire.
Stephen Mugume, the head teacher said that the workshop had helped them to realise the need to change their mindset towards service.
“We have been operating with a mindset that cannot produce good results but from today’s workshop we expect improved approach towards success,” he said.
