Government intervention improves attendance in schools

Supply  of  text books, sanitary towels and milk for learners in the lower classes has improved attendance in public schools in Meru County.

The  Meru Primary School head, Judith Ntumbari said the school enrolment in all classes was on an upward trend as learners reported for the 2020 first term.

Ntumbari  said the school has been receiving sanitary towels in bulk from the national government since 2018 to cater for standard five to eight girls to enable them stay in school and boost self-esteem among the beneficiaries. She said so far over 100 girls were benefitting.

The  Head  noted that the school was still admitting learners from other schools especially the private ones due to availability of text books, sanitary towels and milk for learners in the lower classes being supplied by the county government.

On the progress of Competency Based Curriculum implementation in the school, Ntumbari said three teachers handling the PP1, PP2 and Grade 1 to 4 were constantly attending training sessions on the same during school holidays, the most recent one having been held from 2nd to 5th January.
