Wakiso, Uganda: For three years in a row, Mother Majeri Primary School in Wakiso has not disappointed its parents. After First Lady and Education Minister, Hon. Janet Kataha Museveni released the 2018 Primary Leaving Examinations, (PLE), SpyUganda troops made impromptu visits to various schools in and around Kampala and Wakiso districts.
Joy, glory, merrymaking, jubilations and excitement is what best describes the mood that we found at the Kirinya based boarding primary school, in Wakiso. Out of the 249 candidates that sat PLE last year, 233 scored division one while 16 were in division two. A total of 16 pupils got aggregate 4, while 24 pupils scored aggregate 5. 36 pupils scored aggregate 6, while a total of 39 pupils got aggregate 7. 23 pupils scored aggregate 9. Speaking to SpyUganda, the top best candidates: Ochwo Joshua Opendi, Liki Collin Richard Longa, Olol Shawn, and Maseruka Eldrine Joseph, Aniku Xavier Francis and Edema Saviour Lazerous, attributed their success zealous reading, discipline, good teachers and serene environment. Like UNEB Executive Secretary, Daniel Odong said during the release of the results, boys over outshone the girls this year round. At Mother Majeri, the top best six who scored aggregate 4 were all boys.
A total of 9 girls however also scored aggregate 5, making it a tricky leveled balance. The Director of Studies Mr. Kawanguzi Aggrey said: “As a school, (Mother Majeri), we are grateful for the results that have been released today (17/January 2019) because we had 249 candidates who sat for PLE in 2018 and 233 have passed in first division with 16 in second division. We got 6 4s and 24 5s and the last score was aggregate 16,” he appreciated the management, administration, teachers, the parents and the candidates for the support they have rendered in achieving this success. “We have achieved this because of the immense cooperation, commitment, professionalism and integrity of the staff. We pray that God blesses our institution and rewards us abundantly,” said Mr. Kawanguzi.
