Speaking to learners on Tuesday, January 11, Dr. Terry Garbett, the director of Kampala International School of Uganda tipped learners on staying safe and emphasized the importance of students adhering to Standard Operating Procedures including wearing a recommended face mask at all times, social distancing in class and consistently washing their hands while on campus.

Mr. Garbett said KISU will be following and implementing all government reopening guidelines and measures.

These include putting up health and safety posters in schools, requiring masks for all pupils and staff, enhanced cleaning, ensuring social distancing, and improving hand washing facilities.

At their schools’ premises, they have put several public health signs, procured sufficient hand washing materials and face masks for their learners.

He also said one of the missions of an international school is not only to educate students but also to help them become better-rounded individuals who can contribute positively to the world around them.

International schools offer high pastoral care and a family environment; they provide ongoing support on a one-on-one basis, which can be extremely important in the absence of parents.

According to Garbett, Kampala International School Uganda offers full supervision of the students in the absence of their parents.

On its part, KISU, offers an international education to students between two and 19 years of age.
