Oldeani Secondary School Begins a New School Year!

Only one year into our contract and we can already see great change and lasting impact at Oldeani Secondary School.

As we begin the school year, for the first time:

  • The complete class schedule was in place and teachers were on hand ready to teach on the first day of school.
  • All Form 1 students attended a Pre-Form 1 class focusing on English Comprehension (the language medium for the school). The course was directed by our ESL teacher, Lara Manning, and taught in December by our RVCV Form 4 graduates: Saidi, Benja, Riziki, Doctor, Abdul and Richard.
  • There are 7 additional teachers on the teaching roster. These teachers were selected and employed by Rift Valley Children’s Village to complement the government teaching staff of 10 and ensure smaller class size. 
  • Teachers will be teaching in grade level teams allowing them to develop stronger relationships of mutual respect with students and have greater impact on classroom management. 
  • Over 250 students have already registered with more arriving each day. 
  • 4 new classrooms are now open and ready for use with more to come.
  • All of the RVCV students who graduated from Gyetighi Primary in September will be joining the new Form 1 class. 
  • A student “hostel” has been created for all of our scholarship students so that they can live in a safe and secure environment while attending school. 

We have high hopes and great expectations for the coming school year.
