NOTES OF A MEETING OF THE MITAMYSI SECONDARY SCHOOL TRUST ON 28 AUGUST 2017

Present:  Joseph Nzunghu  Headteacher, Acothy Ndoo  Community Rep, Simon Musyimi  BOM  Rep.

In attendance:  Stephen Kameti TAS/KWS co-ordinator,  Gill Marshall-Andrews  TAS secretary UK.

School Update:

The school has purchased some land adjacent to the school compound for 100,000Kes.  The land will improve the school’s capacity to grow and in particular will be used as a site for the boys dormitory that is expected to be built soon by CDF.

There are now 3 TSC teachers including on new woman for Maths and Physics.  Parents pay for the remaining 4 teachers.

There are now 120 students.  The new intake in January is expected to be higher than last year.

Meetings with ASDF (African Sand Dam Foundation) – arranged by Lissa Campbell – have taken place and the parents have collected sand and stones in anticipation of a project to build a large water tank and guttering.  It would be excellent if this could happen before the rains in November.  Gill and Stephen to follow up with Lissa.

The science lab is still not complete.  Its difficult to deliver the science curriculum with it in its current state.  The funding for this by CDF is in place but has been delayed due to the election.

Currently water is delivered by bowzer and costs 100/- per litre ie 80p.  This is very expensive.

Funding proposals:

TAS is (almost) in a position to send funds to the newly set up company in Nairobi (Karui Limited)  for agreed projects.  This means that 820,000 /- will be sent for classroom refurbishment, 185,000/- for an educational trip and 102,000/- for solar for the girls dormitory.

Further projects:  Fence,  revision materials, and 50% of the transport costs of the stones for the water tank – if it happens.

A library/computer room would be a great asset – maybe in 2018/9.
