Developments at Mkamenyi Primary on many fronts

In the four months since our previous update in March we have carried out the following activities at Mkamenyi Primary, as part of our on-going redevelopment of the school:

  • Demolished an existing block of two classrooms and completed the majority of work on a larger block of three classrooms in their place (the 8th, 9th and 10th classrooms we will have built)
  • Provided a further 150 locker-style desks and chairs to bring to 300 the number we have supplied to date, enough for all pupils in the five upper primary year-groups
  • Supplied three free-standing cupboards for the offices of the headteacher/secretary, deputy headteacher & senior teacher
  • Supplied a high-volume laser-jet copier which means, for the first time, staff will be able to do photocopying on-site, significantly improving the day-to-day running of the school.
  • Resumed work on the girls’ toilet block, which had been delayed due to unavailability of tiles for the floor
  • Brought the new staffroom and offices into use.

With funds we have secured from elsewhere we will be able to start work in the coming weeks on the remaining two of the planned twelve classrooms – replacing another existing block of two classrooms – and, later in the year, on the kitchen and multi-purpose hall.

We are still actively raising funds to provide twin-tables and chairs for the three lower primary year-groups, to build a boys' toilet block and to install further guttering and rainwater storage tanks as a priority for subsequent phases of work.
