Kampala Parents School recently announced it will start delivering lessons online using the Zoom Application and true to its word, the Ruparelia Group-owned school Tuesday commenced the exercise.
The first beneficiaries of the exercise were the P5, P6 and P7 classes. Classes for Primary Three and Four will start on 29th May 2020; Top Class, Primary One and Two will start on 4th June 2020.
In an interview with CEO East Africa, Kampala Parents School proprietor Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia said that the school had procured 40 internet-connected computers. He said teachers had been trained to use the computers.
“Kampala Parents has always been a proud leader in innovating for our parents and learners. It is difficult to predict when Covid-19 restrictions will end, yet our children must continue being fed with knowledge,” he said.
Dr. Ruparelia said that parents will not incur any extra fees beyond the normal tuition structure. “Learners who had completed their term 1 fees will continue and finish the syllabus at no cost,”
“We also urge those who had not completed doing so, so that the learners may catch up,” he said adding that, beginning on the June 09th the school would open for online Term 2 online lessons, subject to the guidance by the Ministry of Education for learners in Primary Seven.
Because of the COVID19 pandemic, President Yoweri Museveni in March closed all school and learning institutions and have remained shut with no sure date of their reopening. This has meant that students and pupils are not learning.
