Sharing is caring!

The parents of Riang’ombe Primary School in Nyamira County have appealed to the Ministry of Education to provide them with funds for the improvement of the school’s infrastructure.

They said that these year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) candidates from the school beat all the odds to post impressive results.

“They sat the examinations in the mud walled classrooms but they have shown they can do better if they were supported,” said a parent John Onkwani.

The school’s Head teacher Isabellah Kumenda said the school registered a total of 91 candidates this year’s. Five of them scored 400 marks and above. The rest of the candidates scored 300 marks and above except 5 of them, who scored below 300 marks.

She said that her school’s success depended on the hard work of both learners and teachers with the support of the parents.

Apart from leaking rooms and a few classrooms from the ever growing population of learners, Kumenda cited shortage of enough playing ground for the pupils.

“Pupils are naturally playful therefore it is important for their psychomotor development”, she said.

She appealed to parents to work with the School management committee and solicit funds for buying land to expand the playing field.

The Head teacher briefed that she had applied to the local CDF office for financial assistance but her request has never been honoured.

She appealed to the area MP Ben Momanyi to visit the school and evaluate the possibility of its infrastructural improvement.
