All Thika public schools to get ICT hubs to serve learners, local community.

Thika Town MP Eng. Patrick Wainaina plans to set up Information and Communications Technology (ICT) hubs, fully fitted with interactive digital learning content based, a projector and Wi-Fi in all the public primary schools within the constituency.

While addressing education stakeholders from Thika East and West sub-counties, Wainaina said that there was need to improve digital literacy among the young kids as this would open them up to the world and provide the youth with opportunities for online jobs and services.

“Currently, we have embarked on improving on the schools’ infrastructure and accessibility. Once we are through, we are going to kick-start the construction of computer laboratories for ICT integration in learning. Our computer labs will be complete with a server room, smart boards, projectors and computer hardware fully fitted with interactive digital learning content,” explained the MP.

Wainaina added that over the weekend, the computer labs would be open for use to the members of public but for a small fee for maintenance purposes and enable the host school pay for bills incurred from the use of the facilities.

Wainaina promised to follow up the discrepancies in the enhanced house allowances that affected teachers working under similar conditions but receiving different allowances, a matter that was really affecting productivity and the moral of the teaching staff.

The forum had drawn participants from senior education officers, teachers, headteachers and principals, BOM and PTA chairpersons from Thika West and Thika East sub-counties.
