Kasese: Over 700 pupils of Isule primary school in Malina sub-county, Kasese district, are stranded after  a storm blew off the rooftops of their school this week, leaving them with  nowhere to study from.

This unfortunate incident happened on Wednesday during the heavy rains which destroyed a number of classrooms that were being used by pupils,  plus houses and gardens for locals in surrounding areas.  The deputy head-teacher of Isule primary school Mr.  William Ngabi said that “About six classrooms have been destroyed and pupils from primary one up to primary five are now studying under a tree.” He added that “About 326 pupils have been affected by this disaster so we need all the help  we can get from government, international organisations, NGOs, local companies  and individuals.”

He appealed to government to come to their rescue  and save them from the predicament,  because hundreds of pupils no longer have where to attend classes from. Isule Primary School is a government school which holds a total of about 700 pupils. The rainy season in Uganda started early April and reports of property being destroyed by heavy rains are being recorded in various parts of the country, with several areas getting flooded.
