The Role of City Council

The role of the City council in the administration and running of the school is to provide material needed e.g. textbooks, stationery etc.

It is the owner of the school buildings such that the P.T.A. helps in the maintenance of the school such as repairing school gadgets and sporting activities.

Challenges

  • The school was opened in 1997.Most of the classroom equipment was supplied by B.C.C. Since then there was no supply and this has crippled the school because things like furniture are not enough since some get broken and are never repaired.
  • Hot sitting does not give the teacher enough time with children and when maybe its raining children are pile in corners and no effective teaching takes place.

Projections for the Future

The school has prepared a classroom to teach computers. The school presently has no computers present and we are hoping the Council will provide us with a computer. The P.T.A. will also try and raise money to buy another computer. The school aims to perform in the highest level of the day.

The World Vision offered us 2 1000 litre water tanks, which we intend using to promote vegetable garden projects. It has also donated garden tools.
