Daraja welcomed Mpala researcher Corinna Riginos, to discuss land conservation and guest teacher Penina, to prepare Forms 3 and 4 for the K.C.S.E.
Daraja students challenged to take on land conservation, generate ways to make an impact on the cause in local communities.
The partnership between the Mpala Research Centre and Wildlife Foundationand the Academy has provided Daraja students with many opportunities to explore science as a field of study and to examine their land and land use with scientific lenses. Last night, Mpala researcher Corinna paid a visit to Daraja for an interactive lecture about degradation versus conversation of land. Corinna explained how excessive grazing contributes to the degradation of land that could take anywhere from three to five thousand years to regenerate.
“How do we change this? What can we do?” Corinna posed to the Academy.
Form 1 student, Yvonne, suggested an education campaign to spread awareness about the harmful effects of improper land use. Ultimately, each Daraja club will generate ways that they can make a positive impact on land conservation efforts and report back to Mpala on their findings.
Guest instructor, Penina of the Mutani School in Nanyuki, gives students tips on how to excel on K.C.S.E.
In a special lecture this morning, Forms 3 and 4 explored the world of poetry in relation to the
K.C.S.E. Students explored personas, mouthpiece, and how to differentiate between meaning, message, line stressers and assonance. Teacher Penina taught through performance and lecture how to determine tone, alliteration, and other aspects of poetry that will show up on future exams.
