I was happy to take part in Mere’s secondary school open day which is a young mixed school. The school is located in Kirima sub-location, Kabaru location in Kieni East and was started in the year 2012 by the members of the local community who saw the need to increase the transition of students to secondary school after sitting their K.C.P.E. Before the school was started the students had to cover a distance of 10 km to and from school.The school is growing in terms of enrollment and also infrastructure and is improving its performance.
In the beginning of this year the Principal invited me for a fundraiser in aid of construction of a classroom where I gave my personal contribution and promised to work closely with the school and the Ministry of Education and get some funding for extra classrooms. We were able to accomplish that and the school was funded to a tune of 1M to at least complete a classroom.
The students promised to work hard and hit their target mean of 4.5 and have a positive attitude towards Education and their school. It was a fun day of singing and dancing in that corner of Kieni. We will continue working hard to promote education in Nyeri.
