After Two Years, Schools Re-open in Uganda
February 11, 2022
The Schools in Uganda were under lockdown since March 18, 2020, because of the Pandemic. The lockdown was to last for 14 days. Fourteen days turned into seven months. On October 15, 2020, all the candidate classes returned to school to prepare for the national examination. In March of 2021, the other grades were allowed to resume school one after the other, but not all the grades.
The children from Nursery School to Primary three never had a chance of returning to school for two years. The Ministry of education had allowed them to resume school on June 6, 2021, but after only one day at school, they were told to return home for another lockdown! With the news of the second lockdown, you could see the sadness on the faces of children, teachers, and the supporting staff.
January 10, 2022, was a day of joy for the schools in Uganda. All schools and Institutions were opened for the students to continue with their studies. The hallways of our Notre Dame Schools were vibrating with the happy and excited voices of all our students.
