An elated Ms. Kimiywe shows off over exemplary results

INTRODUCTION

The directorate was founded by the principal, Mr. Indimuli Kahi, at the beginning of 2012. The main aim was to expand the former directorate of examination which was being manned by a single person therefore distribute responsibilities to reduce workload previously handled by an individual.

Other than the teaching staff the directorate works closely with the secretaries of the school, who type, photo print and stapple examinations. They include:-

1. Mrs. Musumba Violet
2. Mrs. Ozembo Ruth
3. Mrs. Endovo Janet
4. Mrs. Lidubwi Alice
5. Ms. Zavani jane
6. Mrs. Jumba Joyce

The directorate also works closely with other directorates in the school to ensure that students achieve overall development. The following principles guide the directorate
• Admitting mistakes when in the wrong
• Appreciating a job well done
• Expressing ones opinion freely
• If you please (requesting other than demanding)
• Thank you (showing gratitude)
