The members of the club meet on Saturdays from 9:00am to 1:00/5:00pm (warm lunch is available at a cost). The club is open for all the levels (Yellow, Red, Green, Blue) and the old pupils of KKA below 12 years. For more details, please contact the Patron (HOD Co-curricular) Mr. Briann Ssemiti on 0773783349/0704760583. However the Saturday swimming lessons are still available at UGX 3,000/=.

It is the responsibility of the parent to supervise the child while doing the homework. Feel free to communicate your observations in the child’s diary for the teacher’s further attention.
In addition to the homework, the children of Blue are given library books to read at home. If the book gets lost or spoilt, the parent will be kindly asked to replace it in cash or in kind. However, this has to be done through the office.
All parents are expected to have made full payment of the school dues by the start of the term. No child will be allowed in class before paying all the school fees. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
We wish to thank the parents who pick up their children in time (by 1:00pm/6:00pm) and those that have adhered to our system of using the secret numbers whenever they send someone else to pick the children. We therefore advise parents who have not yet picked their secret numbers to do so because the school will strictly not give any child to a stranger.
Most of the staff members are healthy and already on duty apart from Tr. Mildred Birungi, Tr. Jascent Namawejje, Tr. Scovia Nalubwama and Guide Faridah Nakayima who have not yet come back due to sickness.
Due to ‘Security Threats’ subjected to Institutions like schools, we request parents of KKA to be more cooperative during the pick and drop peak hours. Please take note of the following; park your car responsibly as guided by the staff parking guides, if you are entering the school, accept to be checked by the security officers and make sure you do not take long inside because we have limited space for parking. All parents who park and leave their cars outside the school are advised to stop it because the security officers have promised to put clumps on them. For the security and safety of our children, we kindly request for the parents’ maximum cooperation in this matter.
The school also discourages parents who park outside and send siblings to pick their little sisters/ brothers from classes because they may not be conscious of security/safety risks as they cross the road.
We kindly request parents who are still keeping First Aid uniforms to return them to the class teachers. Parents, who will fail to return them, will be kindly asked to pay for the uniforms.
We humbly request all parents to check in your homes for property which do not belong to you and return it to school. The owners are desperately looking for it. Remember; “Today it is someone else, tomorrow it will be you trying to recover your property.” Therefore your cooperation in this matter will highly be appreciated.
We wish you a peaceful and successful term. God bless you.
