As happens towards the end of the year, last Friday arrived with a lot of smiles on the faces of pupils at Kitante Primary School.
As a one off, the pupils were allowed to report to school in their best clothes for a day of fun and games, laced with eats.
Some also came with their toys, including Samuel Mubiru of P6, who came with his bicycle, to show off some skills to friends.
Each of the pupils had been asked to pay Shs 10,000 to cater for the day’s eats-a soda and biscuits as well as a light lunch.
Launching the festivities, the school’s head teacher Jane Semugoma explained that the annual event was all about celebrating the year’s achievements through academic and co-curricular activities.
The pupils, some accompanied by their parents, were fed to lots of singing and dancing competitions by the learners, and the winners received gifts from Father Christmas, dressed appropriately in red.
In the midst of all this, the school compound was a hub of furious activity, with some pupils jumping on a trampoline, while others enjoyed the bouncing castles. Others took a dip in the mobile swimming pool to cool off the afternoon heat.
But perhaps the juiciest bragging rights were reserved for the P7 class, some of whom referred to themselves as senior one students. This was after they recently completed their Primary Leaving Exams and are awaiting their results.
The festivities continued into the evening, and will be something for the learners to think about as they look forward to a week of end-of -year exams, and preparations for the end of the term by December 8, 2017.
