Secondary school’s teaching timetable in Uganda


About Timetable of my school

First term already passed for two weeks.
I feel I am used to Ugandan time.

Japanese people think so mysteriously that there are no break time between the classes.

Ugandan time

However there are devilish break time by Ugandan culture.

Today, I was surprised that there is a teacher who warned students about lateness.

This is normal by just looking at the timetable in this way ,though extra classes notified this week.

Extra teaching timetable

Morning: 5:00-6:00
Evening: 17:00-18:00
Night: 19:00-22:00

Extra classes are depending on grade and elective subject.
So these are not everyday but almost everyday from very early morning to late night.
Computer night classes are set 4days in a week…

I think that cutting devilish break time and extra classes convert to self-study make the school better.
Though I had only one class for myself.
