Guest Post: Kigali City Evaluates School Standards
Aiming at improving the quality of education, the City of Kigali organises schools’ peer evaluation every year. The assessment looks at different components including: school infrastructure, the ratio of equipment in a school to the number of students, the students’ discipline, teaching and learning, hygiene, facilities, professionalism in school administration and P6 performance in National examinations.
After 2017 schools’ peer evaluation, Kigali City held the Education conference at Hill Top Hotel on 27th June 2017 and five outstanding schools were announced. Umubano Primary School has been ranked the third among 215 primary schools that were inspected in Nyarugenge, Gasabo and Kicukiro Districts. Two first schools are both from Nyarugenge District and this makes our school the first in Kicukiro District.
This success was possible because of good collaboration among our school partners. We are very grateful to parents, the school board, APIE, UPS staff, students and the Government for everyone’s effort in boosting the quality of education and reshaping a better world.
