Abstract


In this study, the main purpose is to present the influence of extra curriculum activities toward the academic performance of secondary school students in Uganda.

In accordance with this purpose, the following specific topics have been put under research in terms of their effect on the academic performance of secondary school students in Uganda: the sports, debates, cultural galas or celebrations.  In all schools all over the world, co-curricular activities play a very vital role towards the academic performance of learners in schools.
