Rwanda : Kigali schools need to work on hygiene

The state minister of education, Dr. Mathias Harebamungu has said that schools in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali, need to increase their efforts on hygiene in order to meet the required standards of the education policy.
The minister made the remarks while addressing city authorities and educationalists gathered during the annual education general meeting held at the city hall, on May 29, 2012.
The meeting was intended to highlight the outcomes of the general schools inspection activity, the performance of students, and to evaluate the standards of education in order to come up with recommendations for the future.
The inspectorate findings indicated that Kigali city schools still have the lowest standards of hygiene compared to countryside schools, and lesser activities of environmental protection.
It is against this background that the minister called on heads of city schools, parents and the students’ community to improve these standards as a way of ensuring a good education environment.
On the issue of performance, it was indicated that some private school do admit students without proper documentation of their previous performance in other schools, an issue that was said to be compromising the general performance for students.
In the same meeting, St. Ignatius school in Gasabo district, Kigali city, was awarded for it outstanding performance in students’ academic performance in the previous academic year among primary schools, while Lycée Notre Dame de Citeaux was awarded in the secondary schools.
The meeting also rewarded laptops to the best teachers and schools for promoting quality education standards.
