Magoha Hails private schools for Constructing Ultra-Modern CBC classrooms
Magoha was inspecting classrooms at Mudasa Academy and Golden Elites Kisumu, where he confirmed that private schools nationally have constructed at least 1,200 classrooms.
He pointed out the role played by private schools in implementation of the CBC and urged private schools to invest more in infrastructure.
According to Kenya Private Schools Association national chairman Charles Ochome, as confirmed by Magoha, they plan to construct 5,000 more classrooms by July out of their targeted 10,000 by end of the year.
Golden Elites schools in Kisumu have constructed an ultramodern four-storied junior secondary school with eight classrooms.
Ochome, who is also the Golden Elites schools director, confirmed that plans are underway to construct two more buildings in the school.
At Mudasa Academy, there is an ongoing construction of ultramodern classrooms.
Director George Mudanyi said they are prepared for CBC implementation.
He said they are constructing four-storied classrooms comprised of 30 classrooms, four laboratories, a library, a hall and indoor games facility for the junior secondary at the Mudasa Academy.
Magoha praised the schools for their commitment to education.
He noted that most of the children who prefer private schools will now have the opportunity to go to private schools for their junior secondary education.
“Instead of giving us pressure at the top schools, we would want the private sector to develop stand-alone junior high just like this one at Golden Elites and Mudasa Academy,” Magoha said.
Magoha also revealed that the Grade six examination are ready and they will give more details on pupils’ transitions.
