An acute shortage of desks has been reported at Kihyo Primary School in Buhuhira sub-county, Busongora North Constituency in Kasese district.
The school with an enrolment of 662 pupils only has 36 desks according to the Head teacher, Mr. Isaiah Mumbere.
Mr. Mumbere made report on Thursday during a function in which the community members under their umbrella organization dubbed “Kihyo Community Development Forum,” had invited their local leaders including the District Chairperson to explain to them the service delivery gaps in the area and their subsequent demand for a Town Council.
According to the Head teacher, they get a challenge of teaching the learners who sit on the dusty ground that is likely to cause some health complications to them.
The Head teacher further explained that the school also lacks enough classrooms to accommodate all the learners at the institution.
On observation, the school only has two standard classrooms but the rest of the buildings at the institution are in a sorry state hence a threat to the learners.
He appealed to the district leaders to immediately come to their rescue by forgoing a way forward towards solving their problem.
Responding to the issue, the Kasese District Chairperson, Mr. Eliphaz Muhindi Bukombi who was surprised about the sorry state of Kihyo Primary School directed the Head teacher to write a report to the District Education Officer so that the District Boss also makes a follow-up about the submitted report.
