A section of Nursery Teachers in Kasese district is currently undergoing a three – day training course on how to implement the new curriculum.

Speaking to, Ibrahim Kirindiro, the Spokesperson for the TANGU UTOTO Foundation that has organized the training explained that they intend to introduce the new skills to the teachers so that they are empowered to holistically teach the learners not only for examination purposes but also the life skills development.

Kirindiro also noted that in addition to introducing skills, they also sensitize the community members especially the parents about the need to feed their children on nutritious foods so as to fight the problem of malnutrition.

Fatuma Musoki, one of the participants from Redeemer Primary School in Kirembe Cell says she is optimistic that the knowledge acquired from the training will help her effectively teach the learners as she returns back to school the following term.
