Construction of new public school in Kajiado North kicks off

The national government, through National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF), has kicked off the construction of a new public primary school in Ongata Rongai Ward in Kajiado North Sub-county.

Already named Ole Pasha Primary School, the new kid on the block was allocated Ksh9 million for construction of four classes for starters.

Kajiado North MP Onesmus Ngogoyo, who presided over the ground breaking ceremony, said the classes will be ready by April 2024.

“We have allocated Ksh9 million from NGCDF to start the construction of four classes, but we will get a total of Ksh20 million to put up the eight classes,” Ngogoyo said.

Rongai MCA Titus Matheka said the county will employ three teachers in the ECDE, adding that more secondary schools will be put up in the area.

Stephen Njuguna, earmarked as the school head teacher, said the school has already been registered and by next year it will be a comprehensive primary school.

The new school has an existing Early Childhood Development and Education (ECDE) centre. The ECD classes were constructed by the County Government of Kajiado and has already enrolled 20 pupils.

Njuguna called on parents to enroll their children in ECD, PP1, PP2 and Grade 1 to 5.

The school will reduce the congestion in public schools as the neighbouring Olekasasi Primary has more than 3,000 pupils, having to accommodate children from the neighbouring legislative and administrative units, including Kajiado East Constituency.

The situation has been so dire that many children from the town most times have to seek admission in schools outside, including in Nairobi County.
