Funds have been allocated to build classes for grade nine, especially in Mvita schools that need classrooms.

This is according to Mvita Member of Parliament Mohamed Soud Machele.

Speaking while issuing bursary cheques to secondary school students, the Mvita legislature said the sub-county was building additional classes in preparation for grade nine learners next year.

“Next year, 2025, there will be no form ones. Learners will be transitioning to grade nine, and our schools are many but do not have grade nine classes. We have started building the classes because if we wait around, our children will study under trees in 2025,” said Machele.

He said they have reports that there are schools with a lot of children, for example, Sparki, Tom Mboya, St. Augustine, Mvita, etc,” said Machele.

“We have allocated funds to ensure we add two classrooms (for two grade nine streams) in Tom Mboya Pri Sch, four classes in Central Girls, a lab and two classrooms for Sparki pri sch, and three classrooms Mvita pri sch,” said Machele.

Meanwhile, Al Farsy Secondary will get a 51-seater bus as a gift for producing 50 university students following the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education results.

“We are also building laboratories in Makupa and Mvita Boys,” said Machele.
