While some schools have registered low turn up of learners, Muhorro Muslim primary school in Muhorro town council Kagadi district is struggling with an unusually high student turn up.
According to the school head teacher, Julius Alinda Mpigiza, the school has so far registered 1800 pupils.
Alinda says each class has about 170 pupils which puts Pupil-Teacher ratio at 170:1 respectively.
Teachers say that the school administration is finding it hard to deal with the pupil-desk ratio.
The school facilities are strained too: where by once nature calls, learners have to line up since the available toilets at school cannot accommodate them.
Observing standard operating procedures against covid-19 is also failing due to congestion in classes.
Alinda has called for help from the general public to contain the situation.
The Kagadi District Education officer, Bukenya Bartholomew says the district education department is working around the clock to contain the situation at Muhorro primary school.
