2184 Views Hoima, Uganda
Four boarding schools in Hoima have been closed for lack of basic minimum standards. Golden Treasure Day and Boarding Primary School, King's High Secondary school, Kalegete Memorial secondary school and Strive Academy Secondary school all in Hoima town, were ordered to close by a team of inspectors from the Education Standards Agency. The team led by Joseph Lubwama, the senior inspector of schools in the Ministry of Education and sports, found out that the schools did not measure up to the required standards. The directorate of Education standards Agency, Joseph Lubwama, says the closed down schools had their boarding sections in a poor state, not measuring up to the required standards set by the ministry. The affected schools lacked proper space in the dormitories; and the sanitation facilities like toilets and bathrooms. Lubwama ordered the affected schools to cease operations for as long as it takes them to rectify the conditions at the school. He implored police to arrest any school administrator who dares to continue accommodating students in filthy boarding facilities.
