The newly appointed tree caretaker Harrison Kilonzo Mutinda
joined the meeting later.
172 children are enrolled –94 boys and 78 girls.
Class 1 the new intake are 25 – 10 girls and 15 boys.
Class 2 are 19 – 14 boys and 5 girls.
There are 5 TSC teachers and 3 BOM teachers. The county pays for 1 ECD teacher.
The school now had 6 permanent classrooms. 4 have been funded by TAS and 2 (including
one that is unfinished and one that is unusable currently because of poor
quality blackboard paint) funded by CDF.
They need 2 more.
Exam result improved
2018 Mean score 169 and 7 children took the exam
2019 Mean score 180
and 15 children took the exam.
The target for the current class 8 is 220 with 22 children
taking the exam.
Proposals for funding
The school wants to extend the wiring from the ECD solar
panels to 5 classrooms. They will seek
support for this from the MP and CDF.
Also from CDF they will seek guttering and water tanks for
the CDF funded classrooms
The tree planting has gone well, second time round. The first pilot planting had only 60% success
rate but the most recent planting of over 400 trees in 3 blocks has gone
well. The rains have helped in this but
now the caretaker is in place it is expected that the school will be able to
keep the trees alive through the dry times.
ASDF (African Sand Dams Foundation) will visit the school on
10 March to assess the community’s contribution of sand, and stones. If they think there is sufficient then the
construction of the large tank can start straight away.
The bank account for the Forest Project has been opened and will require funds to be transferred for the caretaker's salary for 6 months - 30k/- and for tools. Lut will liaise with Stephen Kameti.
