On Tuesday 15th February technical training classes began at Tumaini High School. We’re starting with what we have, which is the expertise of Jim for mechanics, Kai for plumbing, George for electronics and Mtavi for carpentry (sign writing will also be added later).
The training is initially being run as an after school club, but the plan is to incorporate technical training into the examinable subjects of the school; as the provision is there in the syllabus for K.C.S.E. in most of these subjects.
There has been a request by some students for tailoring to be added and we also plan to include housekeeping as we have the expertise within our members of staff.
KRC 701 is a very familiar registration plate to many of our longer serving members of staff at Tumaini – it’s our old Landrover, which has been off the road for several years; until yesterday!!!!! Jim and Mwinyi worked hard to check out the engine, the clutch and the wheels and yesterday afternoon the old car roared into life again (well almost)! KRC 701 is happy to be of service to our mechanics club and members of staff are happy to see her alive again. Xx Glyn & Jane
