KITGUM: MONDAY, JANUARY 3, 2022
As Government has assured public about reopening of all learning institutions, Kitgum’s Alliance College is among the secondary schools that is eager to reopen.
The college is a mixed day and boarding secondary school for both Ordinary and Advanced level with over 480 students before Covid-19 struck the country.
Richard Ocan, deputy head teacher of the school has assured that the administration has organized adequate facilities to ensure that standard operating procedures against Coronavirus are observed.
“We have bought enough hand washing facilities, hand sanitizers for staff and three temperature guns that are well functioning. We have spacious dormitories and well-spaced classroom blocks to accommodate all learners,” Ocan said.
He added that all teaching and none-teaching staff are done with either first or second dose of covid-19 vaccination and they have recommended on a letter to parents that facemask and hand sanitizers should be consider as student’s requirements and will be checked at the gate side before entering at school compound.
Science Teacher Kerosene Onekalit expressing his excitement at government’s decision to reopen schools said that laboratory chemicals were about to start getting spoilt since they were not being used.
Rosemary Acayo, a senior two student, said the government has made a good decision to take them back to school because they have anxiously waited for the moment to resume studies.
