We are ready to resume studies, with all recommended COVID-19 protocols in place.
The school calendar of the year 2020 has been heavily affected following the government directive of closure of all learning institutions from the month of March 2020. The was occasioned by the global outbreak of the Corona Virus pandemic. This has meant that students have been out of school for over 5 months now. The Kenyan government did set up a task-force to look into the reopening of schools, with the declining reported cases of infections in the country.
The management of the school, during the hiatus period, has been working to make the school even better and safer for all our stakeholders. We have done major renovations and repairs in the school, and have greatly improved the facilities in the institution. Students, parents and staff will be happy to realize that facilities in the dormitories, classrooms, offices, kitchen and labs have not only been maintained, but also upgraded. We have had to do a makeover of our computer laboratory and we now boast of a modern laboratory with high-speed Internet connection.
In line with the government directive for schools to put in place safety measures against COVID -19 infections, we have ensured that our ablution facilities are in proper working condition, well ventilated and safe when school programs resume. Our classes, dorms,, and other facilities are designed in such a way that physical distance is maintained when learning resumes. We have also put in measures to combat the spread of Corona Virus right from our gate by providing sanitizing material and non-contact thermometers for visitors and students as they come into the school.
The school administration has embraced organic farming. We have also planted over 100 trees, including fruits such as bananas and pawpaws. This will help in supplementing the diet in the school and also giving a hand-on training for our students.
