Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) continues to impact society positively with the latest move being the development of a five-year strategic plan for a primary school in Kwale.
Kichaka Simba Primary School became the latest beneficiary by adopting a five-year strategic plan developed by JKUAT experts. The Strategic Plan addresses the menace of teenage pregnancies, which has been identified as a key contributor to poor academic performance in rural schools.
While expressing his gratitude to JKUAT, Kichaka Simba Primary School headmaster Mr Japheth Matingi lauded the Strategic Plan by the University experts, which he said, would go a long way in actualizing the vision of the school that was aspiring to be a centre of leadership, performance and excellence.
The concept, he said, sought to interrogate ways to bolster staff morale, and pupils’ admission from the current 304 to 500 by 2023. The Mombasa Catholic Archbishop Martin Kivuva who delivered the plan at the school urged parents and teachers to empower pupils with skills that will enable them achieve excellent performance.
Dr. Fridah Simba, the director of Mombasa CBD Campus who presented the plan to Archbishop Kivuva on behalf of the University said the strategic plan allowed for more efficiency in all aspects of management.
