A total of 65 students from Nabisunsa Girls’ Secondary School have graduated with DELF diplomas in the French language from the French Ministry of Education after attaining proficiency in the language.

The graduands were rewarded with certificates, prizes from Airtel at the function that was graced by Tracol Lea attaché for culture and Education, Karim Chwinyly coordinator DELF Program alliance France, Human Resource director Airtel Flavia Lwanga and Nabisunsa Girls Secondary School Headteacher Hajjati Zulaika Nabukeera Kabuye.

DELF which stands for Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française are official qualifications awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the competency of candidates from outside France in the French language.

Michael Kushemererwa, a French teacher at Nabisunsa for both the UNEB and international curriculums, the students attained proficiency in speaking, writing, reading, and listening.

“I realized DELF was important to students in terms of mileage because it allows them get diplomas from the Ministry of Education of France. Before we introduced this course, students could pass heavily at both A and O’level but couldn’t make a simple conversation.

“These diplomas are valid for life and it’s very difficult to compete with people with the french diploma.” The diploma helps one to get a scholarship and jobs, these diplomas are an additional advantage for opportunities abroad and in international organisations. These diplomas also help learners to be fast speakers of the French language.” Kushemererwa said.

Speaking at the ceremony, headmistress Hajjati Nabukeera hailed the graduands for reaching the milestone

“I take this opportunity to congratulate the graduands. We have over 1700 students at Nabisunsa Girls and we offer a wide curriculum under the ministry of Education and Sports. We have over 1700 students.” When we say we want to have a versatile girl child this is what we mean. We don’t limit them and give them a variety of subjects including French.”

On how the Diploma is beneficial to the graduands

“You are achieving something extra beyond what others do have. I always tell you before you leave high school, you already have something that is recognized outside.” Said Nabukeera

Abdul Malik Sserwadda, son to the Headmistress was the only male graduand and the rest were girls.

Nabisunsa Girls’ Secondary is a Muslim based school close to 70 years and located around Banda in Kampala. It nurtures Girls across all professions.
