Pearl of Africa International Primary School
Following the presidential address on Sunday 20th September 2020, candidate classes have been directed to re-open starting 15th October 2020.
With this, we are pleased to announce that we have been cleared for takeoff and will start classes on 15th October 2020 for P7 candidates.
Below are the guidelines put in place for parents, children, and teachers for a safe return:
- Follow the SOPs given by the Ministry of Health;
- Make sure your child has at least 2 sets of masks;
- A small bottle of sanitizer;
- A handkerchief
All our staff at all levels have been trained to meet the current health standards communicated by our Government to ensure the safety of all our students. These include handwashing, respiratory etiquette (i.e. coughing and sneezing into the elbow), physical distancing measures, and safe food preparation practices.
Please note that the start of physical classes will not hinder our regular online sessions for other levels. It is an honor to have you back with us.
Find Creativity, Excellence & Diversity in our classrooms.
Welcome to Pearl of Africa International Primary School – a community of creativity, diversity and excellence! As educators, we strive to create a unique educational environment where students enjoy a modern and personalized approach to education. We incorporate a variety of pedagogical perspectives into our teaching and learning in order to encourage pupils to become partners in their education experience. Self-expression is key among these ideas. Pupils are encouraged to share what they know and love, and each child’s unique personality and skills are valued in order to foster greater engagement. Your child’s passion is our passion, and helping them find a joyful and meaningful learning experience is a critical first step towards preparing them for the diverse and globalized world.
An ideal place to learn and grow
“Your school of Excellence”
The Director's Message
Welcome to Pearl of Africa International Primary School – a unique educational community where students enjoy a modern, personalized approach to education. We opened the doors to our primary school in 2014, following 25 years of excellence in pre-primary education (Kissyfur International Pre/Kindergarten & Day Care Center), to meet the increasing demands of the families we had been serving. Our vision is to offer a holistic, high-quality education for students from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, religions and abilities. We are known throughout the region as an inclusive, academically high-performing school, in which no child is left behind.
Pearl of Africa offers two curricular tracks. Our International Section follows Key Stages 1, 2 & 3 of the British Curriculum culminating in Cambridge International Examinations. Our National Section follows the Ugandan National Curriculum as set by the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC), culminating in Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) exams. Additionally, our school has been accredited by Alliance Française and proudly offers French language lessons.
We have recently moved our rapidly growing Primary school to a new home at Plot 10 Nakasamba Close, Entebbe. Our beautiful compound is tucked away in a quiet, residential area but easily accessible (just a minute’s drive) from the main Kampala-Entebbe road (Queens Road before airport stage).The larger, customized facility has been designed to maximize student learning and socio-emotional development. Beyond academics, students have the opportunity to participate in various sports and enjoy weekly swimming lessons in our private pool. They can also explore their creativity through drama, dance, and music. As the home of music in Entebbe, we offer private lessons for those who are interested from both within and beyond our school.
We recognize that each child is an individual and that each child should be given the opportunity to succeed. Our dedicated teaching staff is passionate about education and about guiding young minds. However, we know that we cannot achieve this alone. Parents and guardians are critical actors in the success of their children. Therefore, we encourage you to be our partners. Please come for a visit, come and talk to us. See what it’s like to become a part of our community and share in the joyful experience of learning.
