Parents threatens to withdraw children from school
07 January 2013, 16:04
Trouble is brewing in one of the schools in Nakuru town after parents of St. Teressa Primary School threatened to withdraw their children from the school due to poor management.
The angry parents decried over poor performance record of the school for the last 5 years, a fact they said has led to the reduction of number of pupils.
Addressing the Media on Monday morning, the parents took issues with the Municipal Education Officer for failing to over see the implementation of an audit report that had been compiled by the Nakuru District Officer 2 years ago holding the former Principal Gidion Gitonga accountable for KES 166 869 which was lost during his time.
The parents also said that, despite having contributed KES 60 000 recently to settle the water bill, only KES 18 000 was used to pay for water bill.
At the same time, the parents complained against the lease of one classroom into a Church, something they said it was against their wish.
The parents now want the matter to tabled in the office of the Ministry of Education for further discussion on the way forward.
