The management of Ntare School in Mbarara has suspended all senior six students over indiscipline.
According to sources, the students were suspended after staging a strike on Monday night for yet to be known reasons.
The school headmaster, Saul Rwampororo, the strike resulted into damage of school property.
“The school management has today, October 3, decided to indefinitely suspend the entire senior six because last night they exhibited a high degree of indiscipline –they deliberately destroyed school property including the recently installed CCTV cameras around the school,” the circular issued Tuesday morning reads in part. The board of governors will subsequently sit to assess the damage and chat the way forward”. the statement says.
The development comes at a time when senior six candidates are in preparations to sit for the Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) examinations in November.
According to the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB), the examinations will be conducted from November 10, 2023, to December 1, 2023.
