Pupils drawn from Kanjora Primary School, D.E.B Kahiga-ini Primary School, Karuna-ini Primary School and Gathathi-Ini Primary School in Nyeri County got a warm treat from the five member team from CEMASTEA when they visited their schools to donate books on peace education. Peace Education was the theme for the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) held from Thursday January 18, 2018 to Friday January 19, 2018.

Led by Mrs. Beatrice Macharia, the Deputy Coordinator Training, CEMASTEA and Mr. Philip Maate, the Deputy Dean Physics Education department, CEMASTEA; the team spent the two days interacting and engaging the pupils, parents and teachers in educational and motivational talks before awarding the pupils with the Peace Education story books including the teachers’ guide which were donated by the Ministry of Education (MoE) through Mrs. Macharia’s initiative and the Communication Department of CEMASTEA with the great support from  the Director CEMASTEA, Mr. Stephen M. Njoroge, HSC.

The aim for donating the books was to sensitize the pupils, teachers and the parents on the importance of Peace Education that has also been incorporated in the new curriculum.

Speaking to the parents, Mrs. Macharia emphasized that the home environment affects the school environment, therefore there is need to create a good environment for the children at home since this will see them through their other learning environments. She encouraged the teachers to be more innovative in teaching and learning to ensure that the performance is improved.

On the other hand, Mr. Maate encouraged both the teachers and the parents on the importance of team work. He also gave them an illustration paraphrasing it from the bible in Colossians 3:23 on the need to take responsibility.

The pupils were encouraged to work hard in their studies and not to indulge in behaviours that will lead them into bad habits like drug abuse. They were also told to embrace peace in their lives and learning.

The CSR is among the activities and projects lined up in the CEMASTEA Calendar this year.
