Transformation Experiences

Students Leaving for Home After a School Day
Students Leaving for Home After a School Day

Dear friends and partners,

The days have run by so fast and now we are in the middle of another school term already! The school population now stands at 112 with a consistent attendance of about 95%. However, the school had days when daily attendance was as low as 78%. This was mainly due to what seemed like a measles outbreak and the school had to take the necessary precaution of letting some children stay away from school.

The school is still observing set COVID-19 protocols and working to keep children safe and learning. The school feeding program still continues with all children deserving of meals being served lunch, thanks to our partners’ support.

Students, especially boys in eighth grade have been growing through a mentorship program that seeks to help them develop skills and abilities that will help them succeed through primary school and beyond.

This year we have 17 students registered to sit for the Kenya National Examination Council national test at the end of March 2022. The students have already been taught through 62.8% of content. Students’ motivation to learn is fairly high given the strategy to incorporate and respect physical education time within the school routine. Students have been more willing to push themselves with the reward of ensuring they don’t miss physical education lessons.

In the next months we will continue student mentorship and also involve the parents more in their children’s school life. The pre-school students will also most likely get an extra playing section to enhance play including gross motor skills. We trust that this will build the students’ socializing skills, co-operative learning and playing as well as improve their physical, emotional and mental health.

Thank you for being a part of these transforming experiences for the students and making them happen!
