Mr. Emmanuel Kubako, the Headmaster of Gracia Nursery and Primary School in Yambio County, Western Equatoria State (WES) made the appeal on receipt of his school’s encouraging Primary Eight Leaving Examinations results last week.
Mr. Kubako said he is very happy with the performance of his pupils, saying the performance is better than the previous year’s.
The School emerged the second best in the WES P8 examinations. All the 38 candidates who sat the exams passed.
“I am very happy for my students passed all in the Primary Leaving Examinations of 2013 and 2014,” he noted joyfully.
“Suspension of holidays, conducting weekly tests, giving pupils interviews before registering them and making sure that the syllabus is finished before the end of the year has made the school to perform better this year.”
He said the lack of close supervision of teachers to ensure smooth running of teaching and salary delays which make teachers reluctant also hinder performance in the school.
Kubako urged teachers to work hard in order to deliver quality education to the students in the academic years to come. He also urged parents to pay much more attention to their children.
