Nursery Application Interviews

The office was so busy today as it was Nursery application day! Here in Uganda, school runs in three terms starting at the beginning of the year. As this year is coming to an end, the now Nursery kids will be moving to Kindergarten and we have openings for 50 new Nursery students!

Last week, hundreds of hopeful applicants applied at the School Administration level and the list was narrowed down to approximately 130 students. These applicants were given slips of paper and asked to come to the KCF (Kibaale Children’s Fund) for further interviewing. And, that was today – it was a full house. We had four staff members conducting the interviews (I was unable to help with this as my Luganda isn't so good).

Within the next couple of weeks, two of the KCF staff (Cephas and Mugabi) will be making home visits to all of the applicants and eventually this list will be narrowed down to the 50 final students.

Interviews started at 8:30am to 3pm

These kids are just too cute!
