Adventist-run school Carr Memorial is set to undergo a major facelift.
Board Chairman Andrew Solomon says the school administration and board are working to secure funds to see the school build new facilities for its students and teachers.
Mr. Solomon says once work is completed, the school will see an increase in enrollment, with Christian education the focus.
Speaking to EMTV News, Chairman Solomon says the school has grown from strength to strength in terms of capacity building. But like other schools in the city, high demand enrollment is not catered for by the current facilities.
Solomon says the new development is targeted at the cost of K15million.
But the Adventist-run school is currently under the government system.
A working committee is receiving help from the Works Department to design classrooms, new learning materials, and teachers’ accommodation.
All these are in the process of being finalized and the School Chairman says this will be a major facelift for the school.
Carr Memorial was recently accredited by the Adventist Mission. The school principal says this is a blessing to the school and its stakeholders.
Going forward, the school board and administration says Christian education will remain the first subject to guide students in their educational attainment.
