Introduction Introduction Lorna went to kigalama primary school to give the pupils a general exam on all the topics in life skills. The general exam is the last exam that crowns all the topics taught under life skills. Overview When Lorna reached the school, she went straight to the administration office where she was met with the headmaster of the School, before heading to the Life Skills class. Lorna and the headmaster discussed about the preparations for the exhibition day whereby she informed him of the number of staff required to attend as well as inquire on how well prepared they were for the day. After this discussion, Lorna went to the Life Skills class to issue out the general exam to the pupils. Lorna found some of the pupils in class as others were carrying out a punishment in the school garden. They were however called by their teachers to come and sit the exam. The exam was for 30 minutes. After the exam Lorna asked them how the exam was others said good while others said it was hard. Lorna advised them to always read before hand so that they are not caught off guard by the exams and this she generalized not only for life skills but all other subjects. After collecting the scripts, the pupils, Lorna, salama and Kirya the life skills teachers all went out under the tree to watch and guide the pupils during their rehearsals for the exhibition day. Conclusion In conclusion therefore, the pupils are geared for the day of the exhibition as was seen presented by them during their rehearsals. Lorna encouraged the pupils to listen to their teachers , be disciplined and also read their books especially the primary seven class.
