CONSTRUCTION of two Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms at Chemelil Sugar Academy will be completed in the next two months says Muhoroni Sub-county Public Works Officer Desmond Saka.
Saka was speaking during the CBC project’s ground-breaking ceremony at Chemelil Sugar Academy on Monday, June 27, presided over by Chemelil Sugar Company (CSC) acting Managing Director (MD) Gabriel Nyangweso.
“We will complete construction of the two girls and boys classrooms and deliver the project in the next 120 days,” says Saka.
Saka who is the overseer of the CBC project being constructed by Kisumu-based Woods Dorm Enterprises Limited (WDEL) was welcomed at the construction site accompanied by the construction firm’s manager Shareen Kisiangani, by CSC’s MD Nyangweso.
Nyangweso urged the project overseer to ensure construction of the two CBC classrooms is done professionally, hastening to say “let it be done well.”
“We want a structure that will stand the test of time. Deliver a project that will not start developing cracks after a short while” he urged.
The MD reiterated “let’s do the project within the 4 months as you have said.”
Adding that “we have started with construction of two classrooms. But let’s have a construction plan for the entire CBC education system, going into the future.”
Nyangweso lauded former Chemelil Sugar Company Managing Director Aaron Tuikong- the brainchild behind construction of the CSC sponsored Academy for both boys and girls- for being visionary by ensuring the school remained with adequate land space for future expansion of educational facilities.
“It appears Tuikong had a vision about introduction of the CBC system of education, considering the large tract of undeveloped land the school has.”
The MD thanked the Academy’s Principal Samora Abisai and teachers for their efforts towards ensuring the CBC project takes off and for maintaining good Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE) results as evidenced by the recent year 2022 results.
Samora in turn equally thanked the Academy sponsor CSC under the leadership of Nyangweso for the support extended to the school towards construction of the two CBC junior grade classrooms adding that “we are confident of attaining the goal we want to achieve.”
The ground-breaking ceremony for construction of the CBC classes was attended by scores of Chemelil Sugar Academy teachers, among them Fred Gai, Anne Ogada, Austin Adongo, Meshack Agwang’ and Caroline Koeh, led by Deputy Principal Beatrice Ondigo, including a section of CSC staff.
“We are new customers of this company and have been very favorably impressed with the quality of the work performed by your staff.” — ROBERT F.
