The first donation of 5 bursaries, each worth KS 100,000, were handed to the Lenana School Principal, Mr William Mwangi at a weekly roll call and assembly in front of the chapel and the school bell. Ronnie Andrews (pictured), representing the Optimum and Msaada Trustees delivered the good news to the lucky five students who had been selected by the Trustees to be the first recipients of the OKT/MKT Trust bursaries.
In handing over the cheque Ronnie re-stated the intentions of the Trusts to support high-perfoming but financially needy pupils, to contribute towards refurbishment of infrastructure at the school and perhaps, later, to assist outstanding performers with university scholarships.
The Principal thanked the Optimum and Msaada Trusts and underlined the need for the Old Boys to be involved by assisting in the rebuilding of the school. He pointed out the on-going work in the refurbishment of the courtyards, boarding houses and dining halls and called for assistance in further development of the school.
Mr Mwangi also thanked the Laibon Society and particularly the Principal Secretary at the Ministry of Finance, Dr Kamau Thugge, himself an alumnus of the school, for his efforts in securing funds for the school's next phase of development.
Congratulations once more to our first five hard working students!
