Students of Pabbo Senior Secondary School are slowly adapting to speaking English language at school through curricular activities.
Lucy Okot Akello, the School Head Teacher says the learners use their local languages for communication while at school a factor she attributed to poor performances and poor interpretation of the syllabus.
English speaking among the learners is being emphasized through interclass debating competitions and composition writings among learners.
Akello reveals that English speaking is shooting in the school following a directive from the Kilak North Member of Parliament Anthony Akol who ordered that the school makes it compulsory for communication among learners in school.
Akol made the instruction last month while donating text books to the school.
Akol during his visit at the school last month expressed disappointment with the students for using vernacular language in schools.
He instructed the school management to make it mandatory for all students to use English while in school.
Gloria Anena a senor two student said vernacular speaking is not common among learners but also teachers.
Geoffrey Odokonyero a former Head prefect at the school said most of the learners are now embracing English speaking though few are still adamant.
Pabbo SSS has no regulations on English speaking among students while at school.
