Despite the ever increasing number of schools, most of them especially those in urban centers have ignored sports education.
Scholarly known as Physical Education, this part of the academic calendar is expected to help identify kids gifted with various talents. The session also helps in physical fitness amongst learners.
However, most school proprietors today are establishing schools without playgrounds or fields where learners could attend to outdoor co curricular activities.
Now, in an exclusive interview with Step Radio, Muhammad Mugoya, the Mbale Municipality School Inspector said that they are to close schools without playgrounds.
According to Mugoya, this will help in promoting sports at the earlier stages so as to help nature different talents instead of focusing on academic school values alone.
The school Inspector stressed that school authorities without play grounds are breaching the minimum standards since functioning sports facilities are part of the requirements for a school to operate.
