Subsequent to last month’s meeting with Primary School Heads, this Monday February 11th I met the Secondary School Principals. We analyzed last year’s Constituency KCSE Results for the 49 Secondary Schools, where all but 9 had a positive deviation. Our average mean score was 3.964, although not good enough there was a positive deviation of 0.512 from the previous year’s score of 3.452. We are committed to lobby for understaffed Schools to have more teachers posted by TSC and hold Seminars for weak subjects where we will invite experienced Examiners & Subject specialist to build capacity, among other measures aimed at making Kabondo Kasipul a Constituency of academic excellence.
We also discussed the various development Projects implemented in the last financial year and those that we will roll out soon after the National Government releases funds. It was agreed that CDF funds will not be invested into Projects such as fencing, gates and toilets. In view of the fact that funds amounting to Ksh. 6,000 per student per year is disbursed to each school for infrastructural development and improvement by National Treasury.
On projects we have managed to build 8 Laboratories, 11 Classroom blocks & 3 Administration blocks. This year will focus on finishing up incomplete Projects, besides building new classrooms, dormitories & upgrading of model Schools (our target is 3 Schools per Ward in line with our plan). Rain water harvest was identified as a sustainable option that all Schools need to exploit.
Until funds are released by National Government, we urge School Principals to accept Letters of Undertaking presented by bursary beneficiaries and signed by the Fund Manager NG-CDF Kabondo Kasipul constituency. Students should not be sent home for school fee.
Our main focus is not the next election, but the next generation of Kabondo Kasipul constituency!
