Magoha Assures CBC Students Of Smooth Junior High School Transition.
The government has assured education stakeholders that students enrolled in the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) will be adequately prepared for the transition to Junior Secondary schools.
Speaking at Machakos School during the commissioning of two CBC classrooms, Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha stated that classroom construction across the country is now at 90% completion, adding that he has inspected the majority of classrooms in the country and they are of good quality.
Magoha, who had previously commissioned one classroom at Kyanguli Secondary School, stated that the counties that had fully completed the construction of CBC classrooms were Mandera, Garissa, Wajir, Meru, and Siaya, all of which had completed their work five weeks ago.
“I have inspected a number of schools that have fully completed the construction and commissioned the classrooms. There are some close to ten schools that are still lagging behind between 70-85 per cent. I promise to visit those schools and closely monitor the progress to completion,” noted CS Magoha.
“We have constructed over 5, 000 classrooms under phase 1 of CBC with the remaining ones nearing completion. Most of them are at the roofing and finishing level.
“I believe that we shall deliver and the first 6,487 classrooms will be completely built to usher in the remaining balance out of the 10,000 classrooms,” said Magoha.
Magoha then directed the contractors who were still behind schedule to fasten and finish the classrooms within the next 10 days.
“The remaining contractors who are still struggling to finish the construction, it is my wish that you complete in the next 10 days. I have been assured by various officers that they are going to give themselves performance targets,” Magoha said.
He stated that adequate teachers for Grade 6 are undergoing training, which will begin next month, as well as teachers for Grades 7 and 8, which will begin in January of next year.
“I would like to say that teachers for Grade 6 which is starting next month have been trained in adequate numbers and are ready to work, teachers for January next year have also started attending various training for the purposes of Grade 7 and 8 students,” assured Magoha.
Mrs Margaret Mwirigi, the Machakos County Director of Education, was present and stated that her office would work around the clock to ensure that the classrooms were built within the 10-day deadline.
She stated that the county was 84 percent finished with the CBC classrooms, with Yatta Sub-County having completed and handed over 26 classrooms, and Athi River and Kangundo Sub-Counties having completed and handed over 12 classrooms each.
The county is building a total of 253 classrooms, with 76 already completed and handed over, 66 in the finishing stage, 63 in the roofing stage, and 48 in the walling stage.
In 2019, the government, through the Ministry of Education, implemented CBC. In order to ensure a smooth transition into junior secondary school in 2023, the government established the CBC Infrastructure Development Programme, which aims to upgrade current infrastructure to meet CBC needs in targeted schools by building 11,600 classrooms.
The Multi-Agency Taskforce was formed to coordinate program implementation and ensure effective and timely program communication.
