Arua-One of the oldest schools in Arua district, Yole Polytechnic Institute has after over the years registered one first grade.
Out of 14 candidates who sat in 2017/2018 Uganda Certificate of Education, one passed in Division 1 and 13 students in division two. Now the directors want a revival of the school in order to offer better academic performance in the district.
Speaking to West Nile Press Online, the principal of the school, Amati Mark Joel said the result has offered hope of Academic revival since the inception of the three in one school from 2010 to date.
In the UCE, 150 candidates obtained first grade. He said Yole polytechnic started in 1976 as a technical school but now it has Business section, Technical section and secondary section with a view of giving a fully packed academic Excellency to the students in different talents.
He said first the school had given two in division one out of 132 students in 2008, and last year they registered only 14 students who have all passed well with no body in division 3 or 4.
The Managing Director of the school, Dr Avutia Ronald Debo, said the idea of operating the school as three in one is to equip students identify their area of performance since education now is key to every success.
“We are extremely amazed of the performance and best performed subjects by all the students are science subject, especially chemistry, physics and Mathematics,” the Director said.
Dr Ronald said the current result the school has produced is just laying the foundation for Academic revitalization for the next set of students and calls upon the local communities to own the school instead of sending their children to distant schools.
