During Science Fair, a special event where students of Lead International School present science experiments of what they study linking it with real life, parents were contented by the output of their school fees and the beckoning bright future of their kids.
This Friday 18th March 2020, parents experienced the Montessori education system of nursery students and Cambridge education system where these systems inspire love of learning, critical thinking, collaboration and different life skills in preparation for their future engagement in society. The nursery, primary and lower secondary share their practical and scientific projects to the parents confidently being ready for questions from parents and leaders. Promesse Imena who wants to be doctor in operation is a student in lower secondary and his colleagues explained the heart, lungs and digestion systems.
“We learn in entertaining and interesting methods and we appreciate how they teach us. For example, the heart beats 90 times in a minute for a child whereas for an adult it is 70 times a minute.” Imena said.
Kakooza Nkuriza Charles, the owner of Radio and TV1 and Gasogi United football team, a parent whose child is studying in Lead International School Kinyinya campus, witnessed the quality education provided by this school according to the proven improvement of his child.
“…they have experienced teachers and I like their practical way of teaching compared to where they were before. Lead is a good school because pupils are too communicative, not only that they teach course material but also how the kids behave and they advanced even in extracurricular activities. I think this will develop more scientists, engineers and doctors who are responsible citizens.” declared KNC.
Dr. Clara Chao Igobwa, resident director of Lead International School stressed that the board of directors of the school believe that children are created differently where every child is gifted and given particular capabilities. And that the work of teachers is to try and make the best out of the children.
“We need to give every child the opportunity to grow in every area. We give them practice because children are not only just intellectual beings, they are also physical, emotional, and social beings, and they are talented in the whole range of gifts like in sports, singing and music. This Science Fair enables them to put into practice what they learn theoretically. We are not only raising people of academic excellence, but also people of character, people of discipline…” stated Dr. Eva Mtumba, Deputy principal of Lead International School, told us that the school has inclusive education, where they receive and teach even people with different kind of disability and treat them considerably. She recalled the history of the school that it started in 2008 with a vision of being a leading international school in the region, offering high quality, student-nurturing education in a center of academic excellence.
The school comprises a pre-nursery, nursery, primary and secondary in two campuses (Kimihurura and Kinyinya). The school has around four hundred students.
