Students Urged not to Burn Schools
Students have been urged not to resort to burning down their schools or school buildings whenever they have any grievances with the school administration.
The Eastern Regional Commissioner (RC), Evans Achoki, implored students not to burn schools telling them that the government has made a lot of investments in school infrastructure in order to provide a conducive environment for learning.
“Do not but our classrooms even if you have a problem with the school administration because it could cost the government a lot of money to reconstruct the classrooms,” said Achoki.
Achoki spoke on Thursday during the commissioning of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) unit at the AIC Kinyuani Mixed Secondary and Kaumoni Boys Schools located in Makueni County.
The RC called the students to avoid the vice of burning school infrastructure because the infrastructure will be used by future generations including their siblings more so those learning under the CBC.
“Spare our classrooms, our administration and the school’s management is ready to listen and solve problems whenever they may arise,” said Achoki.
Achoki urged the girls to prioritize their studies and avoid engaging in illicit relationships which could lead to unwanted pregnancies and cause them to drop out of school.
“We do not want any girls to drop out of school. We expect them to study up to university since the government has built many institutions for them to acquire knowledge,” said the administrator.
He called on the students to be patriotic and be citizens who love peace. He also informed the learners that they have a bright future ahead of them.
On his part, the Regional Director of Education Dr William Sugut revealed that the government has built 250 competency-based classrooms throughout the region.
Among other officials who accompanied the Regional Commissioner were his security committee, county security members, and county commissioner Gilbert Kitiyo just to mention but a few.
