Leaders raise Sh31 million towards school facility improvement

Education standards at Kurgung Boys High School in Mosop Sub County are set to improve after leaders raised Sh31 million towards the facility’s improvement.

The fundraiser was led by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, Head of Public Service Felix Koskei, and Nandi County Governor Stephen Sang among other leaders.

Speaking during the event, Koskei stressed on the importance of quality education insisting that the management should work round the clock to ensure the grades of the institution improves.

He wondered why giant schools in the region were performing poorly yet they have resources adding that poor results were embarrassing him as Head of Public Service.

“Next month, I will call for a meeting to get to the root of this matter. We must find out why students especially in this sub county are not performing well. If the leadership is the problem, we will find a way out,” he said.

Koskei called on parents to prioritize their children’s education saying it was the best investment and most powerful weapon that equalized the rich and the poor.

He further urged parents to team up with teachers and work hand in hand to ensure children excel in their academics.

Governor Sang said uplifting education standards through infrastructure is vital for fostering a conducive learning environment.

“Improved infrastructure not only enhances the learning experience but also contributes to student motivation and engagement,” he said.

Nandi County Women representative Cynthia Muge advised students to work hard for the betterment of their future saying education is the key.

She called upon education stakeholders to go back to the drawing board and find out why schools which used to perform better in the past are now sleeping giants.

The Women Rep encouraged girls to avoid early marriages and focus on their education.

President William Ruto’s aide Farouk Kibet who is the patron of the school condemned leaders from the area for failing to support the institution adding that a law must be enforced to make it mandatory for Governors to oversee the construction and development of high schools.
