A WORD FROM THE DEPUTY HEAD TEACHER-ACADEMICS
‘The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end …’ Lam.:3:22
God has blessed us with the opportunity to serve in Mengo Senior School and to specifically contribute to the future of the ‘pearls’ of the world. The Academic team appreciates the parents of Mengo Senior School for allowing us shape the lives of their children. The team works diligently to ensure maximum exploitation of the learners’ potential and practical skilling.
The Academics team is carefully selected and empowered on the basis that academics is the core business in Mengo Senior School. The committed team comprises the:
- Directorate of Studies
- Upper, Middle and Lower School Administrators
- Dean of students Career Development Affairs
- Quality Assurance Officers
This kind of hierarchy makes it easy to effectively monitor and supervise the teaching – learning process. The teamwork and resilience exhibited by these Administrators results into excellent transformation of learners into all-round performers who are equipped academically, spiritually and morally. This opens their eyes to the world and they are very proficient in the job market.
Our curriculum design and content is well spiced with a number of subjects encompassing General Technical and Vocational Studies, Humanities and Sciences which enable the learners exit with diversified skills. This explains the reason why we embraced the New Lower Secondary Curriculum and implemented it with a lot of ease. Teaching the eight electives designed by the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC) presented minimal challenges to Mengo Senior School. The learners are handled with a lot of confidence and expertise by the well trained teaching staff.
We cannot underestimate the support of the Board of Governors (BOG) and Parents-Teachers Association (PTA) towards the excellence of the school in all aspects. Their cordial relationship with the Academic team facilitates the achievement of the performance goals. The team is zealous in ensuring that Mengo Senior School remains at the helm of producing resourceful, competent and God fearing people. This is enhanced by our vigilance in consistently:
- Supervising and monitoring the teaching-learning process.
- Organizing academic and evaluation meetings
- Planning and supervising the Internal and External Examinations process
- Supervising the report making process
- Drawing and monitoring the implementation of the general school program
- Working with the ICT team to design the Time Table and ensure that it is adhered to
- Coordinating with the DOS and Deans to effectively guide the students
The unwavering support of the Head teacher, working in liaison with the Deputy in charge of Academics to supervise the team, is paramount in steering the school to greater heights.
It is evident that Mengo Senior School has always been exemplary and at the forefront of managing change. A lot has changed with the incidence of the COVID -19 pandemic especially in the mode of content delivery. Strict observation of Standard Operating Procedures posed a number of challenges to institutions but the Academic Programs in Mengo continued to run smoothly. This is attributed to the spacious classrooms and ambience of the school.
Our School Core Values have been a guiding factor in our service delivery. The legacy is passed on to our leaners who should be God fearing; must exhibit Integrity and should Respect persons and property.
