Strong wind leaves pupils without classrooms

Scores of pupils at Nyatege primary school in Kakola, Kisumu East sub-county are learning under trees after heavy winds blew off the roof and destroyed the walls of three classrooms last week.

School head teacher Mr. Jekonia Awuondo Abondo identified the classrooms mostly affected in the last week incident as those used by over 150 pupils in class eight, five and six  respectively.

A visit to the institution on Thursday revealed the damaged classrooms were still partially submerged in water with the better part of the walls having crumbled.

And, calls for support to rehabilitate the classrooms ahead of the start of the new academic calendar, said the head teacher, are yet to bear fruit.

Abondo however lauded the local national government constituency development fund and Red Cross teams whom she noted have since visited the institution to assess the extent of damage and the possible remedy.

“Am grateful for the CDF and Red Cross among other well-wishers who have responded to our distress call; the classrooms are however still in bad state and need to be urgently rehabilitated,” said Abondo

The administrator is now urging the local leaders and well-wishers to come to the school’s timely rescue after expressing fear that the current situation could adversely affect the learning calendar to the detriment of the pupils if not urgently addressed.
