The Ministry of Education and sports has put a temporary ban on hosting of performing artistes on premises of public or private Primary and Secondary Schools.
Through a document shared by the Ministry of Education and sports, all head teachers and Principals of both government and private secondary and primary schools are cautioned to ban performances from artistes from school grounds until guidelines are put in place.
“Head teachers and Principals of both Primary and Secondary Schools are cautioned not to hire or allow any of these “artists” to perform in schools. Failure to comply, will lead to school managers being personally held responsible and disciplinary measures charged against them,” reads part of the document.
The ministry emphasized schools to continue in extracurricular activities like sports, games and debate clubs for edutainment.
“If schools need to entertain themselves, then they can engage in acting plays or arrange concerts. However inviting singers who dance erotic dances, go naked to the schools in the guise of extracurricular activities must be forbidden hence forth.
The taken follows Tororo Woman MP Sarah Opendi’s argument that musicians who hold concerts in schools while dressed indecently and dancing provocative moves are the root cause of indecency. She therefore called for the banning of such performers in schools
