St. Julie students ace national exams
St. Julie Mission students from the primary and secondary levels knocked it out of the park on the 2021 Uganda national exams. This was even after being out of the classroom for months due to COVID and with no digital learning like many schools pursued in the United States.
- The primary students all earned Division 1 (the best) for the first time in the school’s history!
- Notre Dame Academy O-level students scored so well that the school is now ranked 12th in all of Uganda.
Sr. Anita Marie Stacy, former NDA head teacher, was excited to report on our first-ever A-level results:
“This was our first year of sitting for Advanced Level (A-level) Ugandan National Exams.
Many eyes were on us to see how we would do against the odds of getting started with our first class and then adjusting to the pandemic.
Well, God has been generous to us.
NDA A-level had:
-the highest student average score in Kibaale District,
-the best performing student in the district,
-25% of students receive government sponsorship to attend university,
-5 of the top 10 students in the district (and they were the only girls in the top ten).
Congratulations to the students and to Sr. Syombua Christine, our sister from Kenya who served as NDA head teacher leading up to and during the exams.
We want to take this chance to thank you for your prayers and support to make this possible. It has been a long road to get A-level up and running but it has been a blessing for those girls who have been able to profit from it.
Sometimes it is hard to realize the difference we are making all the way across the world, but for sure, we are changing lives and creating opportunities. God bless you.”
