Uasin Gishu County Governor Jackson Mandago has challenged parents to invest heavily on their Children’s education.
Speaking in Eldoret during the official launch of the Nova Pioneer school of innovators and leaders, Governor Mandago said education is the best investment a parent can give to a child.
“Don’t look at the fee being charged. Consider the kind of education your child will get and how being in such a school will shape your child’s future,” Mandago said.
The Nova Pioneer school that has both girls and boys secondary school, is located on a 20-acre piece of land along the Eldoret-Nairobi highway. It was built in a record 5 months.
According to CPF Trust fund, they invested Sh1.6 billion in putting up infrastructure for the institution that seeks offers an innovative approach to the Kenya National Curriculum.
“I appreciate the time it has taken to put together this project given the challenges that we have always faced in delivering projects in the country for lack of commitment and seriousness of the contractors,” noted Mandago.
Education PS Dr Belio Kipsang who was the chief guest hailed the role that private schools play in helping the ministry attain 100% transition from primary to secondary school.
He said the government will always work with the private sector in improving the education sector.
Trans Nzoia Governor Patrick Khaemba, Uasin Gishu Deputy Governor Daniel Chemno, Nandi Deputy Governor Dr Yulita Cheruiyot, Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei and Uasin Gishu County Assembly Speaker David Kiplagat were also present.
The opening of the Nova Pioneer School in Eldoret is a major boost to Eldoret town that has recently attracted top organizations to invest in the county.
The county was recently ranked by World Bank as the best county in the ease of doing business, a move that has seen more investments coming up.
