In Summary
  • Grade Three pupils from Kanyugi Primary School carried out massive clean-up of the filthy Engineer town.
  • The clean-up was part of the implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum. 
  • “Grade Three teachers did a pre-visit to map where the leaners are going to clean. We are encouraged by the pupil[s] progress, we are happy with the features we are witnessing especially in communication, collaboration, innovativeness, and problem-solving in waste disposals,” said Ms Mugechi.

The ever filthy Engineer Town in Kinangop, Nyandarua County over the weekend got a new look after a massive clean-up by Grade Three pupils from Kanyugi Primary School.

It took the pupils one day to do what cleaners and garbage collectors are paid for but without any meaningful impact in removing the dirt.

Engineer town is the second largest, busiest in Nyandarua County.

It is also the second in county revenue collection, but its sanitation and environmental conditions have remained pathetic. 

The cleaning by the pupils was part of the implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC). 

During the clean-up, the leaners used own-made cleaning equipment, attire and protective clothing such as aprons and gloves.

Ms Prisca Mugechi, a teacher from the school, said the cleaning exercise was part of an assessment where they were monitoring the learners' progress in line with the CBC.
