Kachiuru primary school progress has been good despite the many challenges in the course of the year. We are happy that they still managed at long last year and the school year has ended successfully. Third was quite short and not much could have been considering the grade 8 pupils were preparing for their end of year national exams which was completed last week. As earlier reported, it was expected that the school head teacher would resume duties after the motorbike accident last term. He reported back for third term and resumed his duties. Grade 8 pupils sat for their national exams last week and we are happy we managed to support the pupils and supervisors with the necessary support that they require during exams. For the pupils we supported them with exams materials like geometrical sets, clip boards and stationeries. For the supervisors we supported them with transport, meals and accommodation and we are optimistic the pupils will perform well and secure admissions in various secondary schools.
In the earlier reports there, were plans to organize fundraising event to raise funds for school desks and other learning materials but as earlier reported, parents were not in a position to raise funds as a result of low income mainly caused by prolonged drought in the region leaving them with very little for survival. The school management decided to put the event on hold until when the situation improves. We have not given up on this and we have continued fundraising on behalf of the Kachiuru and we appreciate the support given by the well-wishers as we continue requesting for more. The school is expected to increase next year therefore in need of more desks and learning materials to improve learning environment for the pupils. We will not get tired or give-up and we continue requesting our friends and well-wishers to consider supporting this project. Thank you for your continued support and we urge you not to get tired either and continue the journey with us. Thank you very much.
