Pupils receive equipment worth thousands of shillings
Pupils of a primary school in Kisii County have reasons to smile after the institution received modern ICT equipment to boost learning programmes.
Kenya Agricultural and Research Institute’s (KARI) Nairobi Sacco donated the equipment that included a digital photo copier with internet connection and printer to administer continuous assessment tests to Kari Primary school in Kisii central
Addressing parents and pupils at the school Wednesday, Hyline Kimani, an ICT expert at the Kenya (KARI) Nairobi/Sacco said the equipment had a capacity of rolling out 1,000 examination paper copies at a time.
Kimani said the over 60, 000 machines internet enabled through access to WIFI would transform the curriculum delivery and performance output at the school.
Deputy Director Kisii KARI SACCO branch Joseph Kwach commended the Sacco for the donation saying the school would save funds used to outsource the services for other developmental matters.
The school headteacher, Mr. Alloys Maina vowed to reciprocate the gesture by recording better national examination grades.
He, however, decried congestion at the institution with over 1, 000 enrolled learners against limited rooms and urged the county government to complete stalled classrooms project.
