Finlays Community Trust is delighted to announce that it has successfully built and commissioned a modern Science laboratory at located in Cheboin Ward, Bureti Sub-County, Kericho County. The Trust’s Chairperson, Bishop Alfred Rotich, presided over the commissioning of the laboratory. Present during the commissioning were, FCT Trustees, the school’s management, parents, among other invited guests.
The laboratory was constructed at a cost of Kshs. 4.3 million and was designed with a mechanism to freely allow it to tap rainwater, as there is a restricted supply of water in the area where the school is located. The laboratory can serve more than 20 students at once. This is in line with the Kenya government’s policy of upgrading infrastructure in learning institutions in preparation for the implementation of the new curriculum called Competence Base Curriculum (CBC).
So far, Finlays Community Trust has successfully built and commissioned 20 laboratories for secondary and tertiary education at a cost of Kshs. 54.6 million, benefiting approximately 6,742 students per year. Laboratories are one of the most important parts of educational institutions. This is because, while various components of learning in schools can take place almost anywhere, experiments and practicals for subjects such as chemistry, biology, and physics cannot.
At Finlays Community Trust, we believe that investing in our children’s education today has a better return on investment for the community and society in future.
