Vocational Skills

Apart from the 4 academic subjects taught in Uganda, there are other vocational subjects/skills that Kampala Parents' School teaches the children in order to prepare them for the future. These are:

Art and Crafts
The teachers harness the local environment and use the available materials to engage the children in basketry, making ornaments like necklaces, modelling, drawing, painting and many more

Learners aged 10-12 years are taught all methods of cooking such as: baking, roasting, frying, steaming, simmering and others. They learn to prepare different types of dishes some which are prepared for commercial purposes or class projects.

Tailoring involves needle work where learners use their hands and sewing machines to draft different patterns depending on what item is to be made. They learn to make dresses, aprons, skirts, petty coats, sweaters and many others.

Apart from sewing or mending their clothes, they gain knowledge of how to be self reliant.

These skills prepare children to future entrepreneurs as they are income generating skills.
