Several parents in Kampala and other parts of the country are heaping praises on Kampala Parents School (KPS) for unveiling very affordable Online Study rates, which have enabled their children attain education despite the Coronavirus (COVID-19) lock down.
KPS, which is owned under the Ruparelia Group of Companies, announced in May that they were rolling out online study programs for pupils from Primary One to P.7, in a bid to help them continue with their studies until government reopens the schools which were closed in March as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown.
KPS studies kicked off in phases, whereby the Management of the School led by Daphine Kato, the School Principal, started with P.5, P.6 and P.7 pupils, before the second phase which included P.1 to P.3 pupils was rolled out.
After realizing the fruits of the Online study programs, parents have started appreciating KPS for coming up with such a brilliant idea of enabling their children study during the COVID-19 lockdown.
One of the parents, only identified as Bryt City Baba, expressed his gratitude to the management of Kampala Parents School by writing thus on Sunday;
