Western Uganda’s finest Parental Care Primary School has secured a slot to the national spelling bee competition that will be held in Kampala, in October 2023.
These have been confirmed by the School’s Deputy Head Teacher Mr. Desmond Tayebwa also a teacher of spelling who said for the past five years, Parental Care has been winning the competition which he accords to hard work and a vibrant reading culture.
”Our school has been winning several competitions and now focusing on the national spelling bee championship that will be held in October this year in Kampala,” said Mr Tayebwa adding; ”Our mighty school is among the top best in Uganda because of our hard work. Our pupils are highly succeeding because we have instilled a vibrant reading culture in them. I, therefore, request our parents to trust us with more children, we help shape a better future for them.”
The school scooped the slot during a one-day spelling bee competition organized by Uganda Spelling Bee Enjuba in Bushenyi District. Another school that qualified with Parental Care is St. Mukasa Preparatory School Mushanga.
During these competitions, the first three best pupils: Emmanuel Tindyebwa and Shasha Asiimwe from Parental Care and Thadious Mutiima from St Mukasa scooped trophies and medals.
According to the organizers, such competitions help in improving literacy, academic excellence and sustain a reading culture but also develop self-esteem, confidence and interpersonal skills. It’s worth noting that last year Parental Care Bushenyi came second in Africa during the spelling bee competition that was held in Malawi’s second-largest city, Blantyre.
