“Motivation is the key to hard work”. This saying has become real during the star model school year 1!
In both Bwanika and Canon Apollo Demo schools CFSU has been observing teachers’ performance especially in the methods they use in teaching English language teaching. This was done together with the English language heads of department the inspectors of schools the CCTs aim being to choose the best performing teachers for recognitions’ sake. After some period of scrutiny the best teachers who have been working tirelessly and whole heartedly were selected from the many.
Constant follow up of star school activities has shown that some teachers go on extra mile to meet the star school objectives. It is such teachers that the project manager keenly decided to reward.
The kind of teachers that qualified for the award were those that:
• Constantly encouraged pupils to speak English while in the school compound
• Enlivened their classrooms with instructional materials.
• Encouraged and supported co –curricular activities like MDD, Debate, writing and drawing in line with language teaching and learning
• Attended to their classes no matter what.
The names of such teachers eventually came out as:
