MADOGO SECONDARY SCHOOL TRUST

NOTES OF A VISIT ON 20 JANUARY 2015 BY GILL MARSHALL-ANDREWS AND STEPHEN KAMETI

We were met by Robert Maina Principal and Rosaniah Gwiyo Trustee.

School update 

The school had just resumed after the teachers’ strike.  Students were enrolling.  Boarders pay 14,000 Kes per term and day students pay 5000 Kes per term.  Many students arrive without the necessary funds.  Sometimes it is thought they have kept the money and hope that they will be awarded a bursary.  Often its necessary to negotiate with the parents  to pay over time.

Meeting with students

GMA and SK spent some time on their own with some of the new Form 4 students.  The things they wanted to help them in their exams were:

·          more revision books particularly in maths and sciences,

·         more practice external exams

·         a trip to a university and other motivational places.

The library

We met the contractor who seemed very concerned to complete the project to a high standard within a few weeks.

There was a discussion about inviting the MP and the County Governor to open it.

It will have both computers and books available for individual use including use by the parents and the community.

There is 700,000 Kes to pay on the contract when the building is complete.  The funds are in the MSST account.

IT technician  overtime

The TAS contribution towards this was 65,000 Kes which was sent to the MSST in Feb 2014. The school contribution was 120,000 Kes. 

The funds have not been paid to the school yet and as they are about to recruit someone to be responsible for the library the money may be diverted to part payment of  a new person.  Stephen to advise on this and timing.

Exam results

The KCSE results wont come out till early March.  The headteacher is hopeful that there will be an improvement on last year’s results.
