It was a remind of our past as every parent at Katwe Primary School, Kasese district lamented during the speech day on 4th December, 2014. The children had improvised with drums as a school band, and they matched the streets of Katwe-Kabatooro Town Council, singing and joyful. Onlookers were busy commenting, but UPE children were show casing and indeed innovative enough. Who could imagine that in the 21st Century school band could be history, but come to Katwe Primary School you will see reality. Children in between the salt lake and fishing in lake Edward.

The Speech day at Katwe Primary School on 4rd Dec. 2014 was an exciting moment for parents and pupils to spend their time together a culture that has degenerated due to the commercialization of Education. Universal Primary Education (UPE) did not mean free education as some parents have take it to be. Provision of scholastic materials and paying special attention to the girl child was crucial if Katwe community was to benefit from the government UPE prrimary, Ms. Jenifer challenged the parents. On his part, Mr. Katemba, took the parents through the tier of education and how the prism narrows down as one climbs the ladders. He asked the Katwe community if they had any children in the last tier being University Education.

The participants of the speech day agreed to meet at the beginning of the term at Katwe Primary school and were reminded to take care of the pupils as they go for holidays
