Church decries poor school buildings

The Anglican Church speaks out on its dilapidated school infrastructures saying they are too substandard to be accommodating students and giving them the required quality education.

According to the Namirembe diocese education secretary who represented the Bishop to receive a 3 classroom block and a latrine worth 300million shillings of constructed by Grant Thornton for Namulonge Church of Uganda Secondary School Rev.Herbert Paul Kabanda noted that they find it a challenge to educate pupils in an environment that does not meet the studying environment.

Kabanda notes that the Diocese has over 100 primary schools and 27 secondary schools running under its mandate but the situation is worse as they lack the funds to rehabilitate and equip them hence urging the school administration and the benefiting community to monitor and ensure maintenance of the new infrastructure.

Meanwhile the Grant Thornton managing Partner Anil Patel handing over the classroom block implored Ugandans to educate their children and desist from the habits of sports betting and drug abuse.

Patel says they have plans to fully construct Namulonge Church of Uganda Secondary School in a period of three years however, discouraging the irresponsible parents that are increasing leading to dependency syndrome and generation decay as many children are dropping out of school .

Patel encouraged community members to live an exemplary life before their children to have a better generation especially when it comes to issues of integrity.
