This was the first time ever any Speaker of Parliament has ever visited their school since its inception in 1964.

Hon. Dr Luveni whilst addressing the students, encouraged them to study hard and aim high. She also took the time to remind the parents of the important role they play in nurturing the students.

“As we witness today, these are the results of students studying hard throughout the year. This is the culmination of hard work and I urge you, students, to study hard and continue to aim high.”

“I also urge you, parents, to take time and talk to your children. It is very important to build that parent-child relationship as it helps the students to be confident in their classroom. Also take the time to talk to the teachers on the performance of your children,” Hon. Dr Luveni added.

The school head teacher, Mrs Luisa Vueti said she was delighted when the Speaker accepted their invitation to be their chief guest.
