Building a new school

Old shared classrooms will be replaced
Old shared classrooms will be replaced

The students in the Fountains of Hope school finished their end-of-year exams and closed school early this month for a long Christmas Break. Its longer than usual this year because we're completely renovating our compound and building new school buildings.

The old mud and iron sheet structures have already been demolished and deep foundations have been laid for a new two-storey building.

We're constructing 10 new classrooms so that we'll have room to offer all eight years of Primary education in eight classrooms as well as offering I.T. classes in a fully equipped computer lab and creative arts in a dedicated arts room. We'll also be renovating our kitchen and several offices in the process.

Its such an exciting time for the school and the students can't wait to see their new school when they return in January.

This building has been made possible thanks to a generous legacy left by a faithful Turning Point supporter. And what a wonderful legacy to leave behind - a school that will provide education, with all the opportunities that education brings, to hundreds of kids from Kibera over the coming years.

While the school is closed we took the opportunity to run some teacher training. This term we focussed on monitoring student progress and reporting. It was a very positive session and we learnt that many students are showing great effort and improving academically each term. We 're also pleased to see the majority of students showing excellent attendance. We are still a young school, learning as we go, and we hope that this training will help the teachers to keep reflecting on their practice and developing their expertise every year.
