There no teachers or students in the school because of
the strike. The school has been closed
for 7 weeks and was looking uncared for.
The proposed new classrooms
There had been only one tender for the 3 classrooms,
hopefully to be funded by TAS and locally raised funds. The contractor has since withdrawn his
tender. Gordon agreed to try and find
two or three new tenders.
Exam results 2014 (2013 in brackets)
(74) 30 boys, 39 girls
Mean score 213
More than 250
Total 30 (27) 15 boys, 15 girls
Highest score 333
boy, 297 girl
The school will have 4 TSC teachers plus the headteacher
when the school resumes after the strike.
With a roll of 656 students this is an impossible situation. There was a promise of two more last August
but nothing has so far materialised.
Gill agreed to phone Madame Tanui on 0722384104. She is the TSC HR person for Naivasha County
and is responsible for allocating teachers to schools in the area.
The library looked in good condition with books and TV in
The librarian’s contract ended in December and will not
be renewed. The Headteacher wants to
recruit someone else and will put in a proposal to TAS for funding.
The headteacher will put in a proposal for funding for a
caretaker to keep the place clean, repair windows etc.
Judy will follow up the funding from Deb Snell’s
fundraising event - ?around 160,000 Kes.
Gordon will look into contractors for the classrooms.
Gill will contact TSC and MP re teachers.
POST MEETING NOTE
Gill spoke to Madame Tanui who confirmed that 2 extra
teachers would be provided for the coming term and another 3 in July. She would welcome any further pressure on the
MP or the Ministry.
