Arlington Junior School excels in PLE 2023

Feb 3, 2024Uncategorized

Its a pleasure to report that in the 2023 Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) all of our students at Arlington Junior School ( AJS) and Matuwa Junior School (MJS) have passed! We celebrate with our staff and students on this achievement.

Arlington Junior School did exceptionally well; 97% of AJS students scored in Division One, placing it in the top 1000 schools in the country. Henry Nakwekwe got a perfect score of 4 aggregates, and was the first student in the school’s history to get a perfect score. Best girl Naburonya Zaidat Rajab, Namanda Daniel and Shikanga Job Wakwaale got 5 aggregates. All our students did very well in the PLE and we are very proud of them. AJS was the best performing school in the Bududa District and these were the best PLE scores in AJS history.

At Matuwa Junior School, this was only the second year that students sat for the PLE. We are very proud that every student passed, and all of these students will go on to secondary school.

This great performance at both of our schools is a testament to our hardworking teachers, staff, students, their supportive families, and our wonderful sponsors and supporters! A special thanks go to our partner schools in the US – the teachers, students and parents of Arlington Traditional SchoolTuckahoe Elementary SchoolNottingham Elementary SchoolDiscovery and Silverbrook Elementary School for your involvement. We also want to thank the volunteers and donors from the US who visited our programs last year and worked at our schools, including students and faculty from Marymount University.
