Noonkopir Girls School Closes Indefinitely
Noonkopir Girls School Closes Indefinitely. According to Principal Florence Kimeu, the Thursday closure of Noonkopir Girls in Kajiado was not caused by lesbianism but rather a group of girls’ lack of discipline.
Principal Kimeu reported that some girls had threatened to cause mayhem if they were not allowed to leave the school during an urgent meeting of the school’s board of management that lasted till Friday night.
These girls felt that they should be permitted to leave before the schools let out for the term because they had finished their exams. Principal Kimeu refuted allegations that lesbianism was pervasive in the school and that men had broken in, which were made by parents and students.
Principal Kimeu dismissed the allegations that certain teachers were protecting accused homosexual kids by not taking action against them fake lies intended to undermine her administration. She stressed that both Christian and Muslim kids attended the school and that their different religious backgrounds were honored.
In support of Principal Kimeu’s claims, Dr. Martin Cheruyot, the county director of education, who was present at the board meeting stated that his inquiry determined that the situation at the school had nothing to do with lesbianism. Additionally, he affirmed that there was no proof to back up the accusation that a student had been assaulted and had her privates harmed by a group of purported lesbians after she denounced their behavior.
Dr. Cheruyot added that with the matron, principal, and some teachers on-site full-time, the school was safe for pupils who wanted to learn. One pupil from the school, who did not come home after it closed on Thursday, was discovered at her aunt’s home in Kitengela.
Her mother stated that because they had to be back at school the following Wednesday, her daughter had gone to stay with her aunt because she didn’t have any money for transportation.
The return to school timetable has been established by the school administration, with Form One students reporting on Monday and Forms 2, 3, and 4 on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, respectively. All pupils must have their parents with them at all times, according to the school principal.
Principal Kimeu emphasized that the school’s closure had nothing to do with lesbianism and was instead the result of some pupils’ lack of discipline for making threats to harm the school’s property. She highlighted that the school was committed to giving all kids, regardless of their origins or orientations, a safe and conducive learning environment.
Dr. Cheruyot, the county director of education, backed up these claims by saying that the school was secure and that students who had caused disruption would face disciplinary punishment.
