Lukalo said there is great need for consultation among teachers as a driving point to help pupils register excellent results following the growing demand for knowledge.
She challenged teachers to emphasize on standards, performance, integrity and leadership qualities to help push the County to greater heights.
“We should work together and focus on better ways of helping the pupils improves their grades in schools,” said the Director, while addressing teachers at Lwanya primary school.
Elsewhere, Funyula legislator Dr Paul Otuoma has warned that the law will take course against perpetrators of child abuse.
He said parents found to conspire with the perpetrators will also face the strong arm of the law if found guilty.
“Parents who will be found to protect individuals abusing children will also be jailed for the offence,” said, Otuoma, adding that as leaders they will not relent on the issue.
The legislator urged the area residents and the provincial administration to remain vigilant and work together in ensuring individuals involved in the vice are reported to the relevant authorities.
“Children are our future investment and we will not compromise with any individuals involved in the child abuse practices,” he said.
He also challenged girls in the district to work hard and compete favorably with boys, adding that the CDF office is undertaking all necessary measures to ensure there is a conducive environment for learning.
