HOIMA: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2021
Peter Lumu said it will not be good to chase students angrily just because they have not fully completed school fees payment.
“Negotiate with parents on the issue of school fees payment should be structured and come with a decision,” he said.
The directors of Step by Step Nursery and Primary school in Hoima City urged parents to ensure that they pay at least something at the beginning of the new academic calendar since most private schools’ accounts are empty of cash following the two years closure.
The government has announced tentative plans o reopen all learning institutions by January 10, 2022.
Lumu said he will adopt an approach of cooperation rather than confrontation with parents during fees collection.
He explained that during the two-year hiatus, the school children have developed strange habits while at home and it may take time to change those habits.
“It requires much care and team work from the parents, teachers and the entire community,” he asserted.
Step by Step is one of the 26 private nursery and primary schools in Hoima district.
