Parents Help Clean Classrooms at Ward Strip

By on February 13, 2017

Parent of Grade Three students at Ward Strip Primary School in the National Capital District (NCD) have stepped in to assist in getting the incomplete classrooms prepared for their children.

In a meeting organised between the school administration and the parents on Friday, they agreed to work during the weekend to clean up the classrooms because they wanted to see their children taught in proper classrooms.

Head of Grade Three Luke Kero said due to the overcrowding and the increase in enrolments this year, the parents agreed to work with the school for the sake of their children.

“I’m quite pleased that the parents have taken the initiative to come and clean up the school,” Kero said.

“We are doing general cleaning especially with the renovation on the incomplete building which will take place by weeks four and six.

“By week six, we will allocate the two classes.

“The parents turned up on Saturday and Sunday to give a helping hand. They did a great job.
“There was a Grade Three parents meeting on Friday last week and they came up with the idea to create two classrooms,” he said.

Kero said they cleaned up the classrooms but the actual work will begin when the head teacher buys the materials for those two classes.

“They would do actual construction of the incomplete building to enable the children to attend classes.

“In the meantime, we will be using those two classes and because of the meeting and they did a good work helping us to do the cleaning.

“I’m really happy with the outcome of the work, the school is really clean now and I would like to thank all parents.”
