Private Schools Construct 1,200 CBC Classrooms Nationally.
Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has praised the country’s private schools for their dedication to the construction of Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms.
Magoha stated that 1,200 classrooms have been built by private schools in Kenya while inspecting classrooms at Mudasa Academy and Golden Elites Kisumu.
He emphasized the importance of private schools in the implementation of the CBC and urged them to invest more in infrastructure.
According to Magoha, Kenya Private Schools Association national chairman Charles Ochome, they plan to build 5,000 more classrooms by July, out of a total of 10,000 by the end of the year.
An ultramodern four-story junior secondary school with eight classrooms has been built at Golden Elites schools.
Ochome, who is also the Golden Elites schools director, stated that plans are in the works to build two more buildings at the school, which is located less than two kilometers from Kisumu International Airport.
The construction of ultramodern classrooms at Mudasa Academy is ongoing.
Director George Mudanyi stated that the company is ready for CBC implementation.
He stated that they are building four-story classrooms with 30 classrooms, four laboratories, a library, a hall, and an indoor games facility for the Mudasa Academy’s junior secondary.
Magoha lauded the schools for their dedication to education.
He stated that most children who prefer private schools will now be able to attend 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.
