By Byamukama Libino
Rubanda district local government has today (Monday) donated a total of 1,232 pre-painted iron sheets, 154 kilograms of nails and 200 ridges to 10 government aided primary schools within the district as a way of improving infrastructure.
The schools that benefitted are Nangaro and Shebeya primary schools in Hamurwa Sub County Rwakagurusi, Kabaya, Mengo Rukore, Illemera all in Muko Sub County, Nyaruhanga primary school in Rubanda town council, Ikumba primary school in Hamurwa town council and Kaato Primary school in Bufundi Sub County.
Handing them to the respective Head teachers of the schools, and leaders of the respective school management committees and members of Parents Teachers Association at Rubanda district headquarters, the Rubanda district LC5 Chairperson Steven Ampeire Kasyaba said that the materials were procured at a tune of 100 million shillings which was part of additional funding which the district leadership lobbied from government through ministry of Finance. He added that they intend to also purchase desks and construct latrines in different schools as they improve on infrastructure.
The Rubanda District Principal Assistant Secretary Elly Mucunguzi asked stakeholders of the schools to also work together in the establishment of structures since the central government changed the policy of constructing structures in schools under school facility grant (SFG).
On behalf of the beneficiaries, the Parish priest of Kaato Church of Uganda parish Rev Issah Tumusiime who is the caretaker of Kaato primary school commended the district for the support and asked the district leadership to continue supporting schools because some of them are in a poor state.
