Kaboyo Secondary School in Kabarole District is struggling to teach science subjects due to the lack of a laboratory.    The school in Mugusu Town Council is one of the oldest in the district and has an enrollment of 300 learners. 

Besides lacking a laboratory, the school also doesn’t have a library, has limited teaching staff as well as poor infrastructure. Textbooks and laboratory equipment are kept in classrooms.

Winnie Atukunda the head teacher Kaboyo says that the absence of such facilities which are important in education has affected the performance of the students.

She further added that during UNEB examinations, the school incurs expenses to hire laptops which learners have to use for their practical lessons.

Atukunda says that the lack of a science laboratory has led to poor performance in science subjects.

//Cue in: we have some learners…  

Cue out: “…we are lacking infrastructure”//

Atukunda told us that the Ministry of Education has promised to post more teachers to the school, this financial year. She adds that the school also needs staff quarters to accommodate teachers who trek from far places to the school every day.

 //Cue in: we don’t have enough…

Cue out: classroom and laboratories”//

Richard Rwabuhinga, the LCV Chairperson Kabarole says that the Office of the Prime Minister has pledged to support the school with funds for the construction of both science and ICT laboratories.
