Uneb officials led by Executive Secretary, Dan Odongo will meet the First Lady at the Ministry of Education headquarters in Kampala, thereafter, the date for releasing of the UACE results will be communicated. Education Minister Janet Museveni has already hinted on possibilities of resuming studies if teachers and learners get vaccinated against COVID-19.
In her letter dated 16th August, First Lady requested the public to join hands in mobilizing all teachers and learners aged 18years and above in all the education institutions of learning-both private and public to go for their COVID-19 vaccination jabs.
"Getting our teaching staff and learners vaccinated is first and foremost for their personal wellbeing and safety. As you may know, delivery of learning is a highly interactive physical process in the context of our country. Most formal learning takes place in a designated physical learning environment called a school or institution of learning. However, delivery of learning, is not by teaching staff alone. They are supported by some critical non-teaching staff. Therefore, in our mobilization efforts for teaching staff to get vaccinated, we do include the critical non-teaching staff that work closely with the learners,” Janet said in her statement.
She added that her Ministry is working closely with the Ministry of Health to align efforts towards getting teachers and learners above 18 years of age vaccinated.
