The Baringo Central Member of Parliament, Joshua Kandie has given out Sh.2.3 million to Seretunin Primary and Kapkawa Secondary Schools for rehabilitation of dilapidated learning and physical facilities.
The Seretunin Primary benefitted with Sh.1.2 million for completion and improvement of stalled classrooms and sanitation facilities which are in a pathetic state, while Kapkawa secondary was issued with a cheque of Sh 1.1 million to finance the completion of a dormitory.
Speaking separately at the institutions in the outskirts of Kabarnet town after issuing the cheques from NG-CDF, the MP pledged to allocate more money to the two schools to make sure the critical infrastructures were completed and put into use by pupils and students in their pursuit for quality education.
The MP assured teachers, students and parents who thronged the two learning schools to witness the handing over of the cheques that he was committed to ensuring that all schools in the constituency have the basic mandatory infrastructure required for quality learning to take place.
He underscored the important role played by physical facilities in the provision of effective teaching and learning in schools.
“Proper school infrastructure will increase school attendance of pupils, enhance staff motivation and improve academic achievements of learners,” said Kandie.
At Kapkawa secondary, the legislator noted with concern that there is a lot to be done in the school in terms of physical learning facilities and called on parents and other leaders to extend hand of support.
“Kapkawa Boy’s High School need more to be done to improve its infrastructure and I promise to see to it that this school become a modern school and succeed in terms of academic excellence,” said Kandie.
Kandie promised to allocate more funds to the school next financial year to bring the institution at par with others of its category.
