    School Strategic Plan, 2012 – 2016

    Njabini Boys High School (2012). School Strategic Plan

     


    Foreword


    The challenge of providing quality education is of central concern to the Government today.  Recent efforts to enhance access to education include the implementation of Free Secondary Education strategy.  The parents too, have had to invest substantial resources towards their children’s education. It is therefore of paramount importance for us as an institution to ensure that we give value to all our stakeholders  in terms of service delivery, results attainment, effectiveness and efficiency in utilization of resources.

    This strategic plan is aimed at enabling the stakeholders in NJABINI BOYS HIGH SCHOOL to realize their obligations. The plan is expected to lay a firm foundation for transforming the school into a leading centre of academic excellence performance in Kenya by inducing modern management approaches into the running of the institution.

    I call upon all our stakeholders to passionately give their support towards the realization of the goals set out in this Strategic Plan

    I take this opportunity to thank all those who have participated in the preparation of the plan; The PTA, BOG, HODS, Deans Office and the core team.  Special thanks go to the Principal for General co-ordination of this vigorous exercise.

    Preface


    A great deal of effort goes towards effective school management and administration. Strategic planning is a long process of consultations and looking at ideal statements of approaches and models that permits organisations to achieve their set objectives and outcomes. This process called for diverse and broad reflections in different settings and places. Throughout the development of this Plan, we have tried to adopt best practices while at the same time adhering to Ministry of Education policies as well as in consult with various stakeholders. Therefore, this blue print has been developed to guide in all the school programmes and activities.

    I wish to thank the Chairman, Board of Governors and the entire management for their support in developing this plan. Many thanks go to all the parents through the Parent Teachers Association for their enormous support. I am grateful to all the teachers in the school for their goodwill especially towards improved academic achievement of the school. The support staff provided both the support and also took part in the development of the plan. All the staff provided splendid contribution and unfailing support at all critical stages of the development of the plan.

    Special mention is made of the Decentralization Education Management Activity (DEMA) for sponsoring sensitization programme for BOG, Dean, and Principals who in turn did the same to school stakeholders.  The DEMA co-ordinator in the region, Mr. Karumba played a commendable role in spearheading this exercise.

    Great deal of thanks goes to the students for their continued spirit to learn and their love for the school. The sense of belonging enables the management, teachers, support staff and parents to feel uplifted and move forward. This Strategic Plan therefore provides the necessary framework for all of us to enhance effective and efficient programme implementation in the school.

    CHAPTER TWO: SITUATION ANALYSIS

    INTRODUCTION


    2.10.    Background of the School

    Njabini Boys High school is a boys boarding/ school located in Kinangop District in Central Province, Kenya. The school was established in 1965 through the community effort.  It was started as a Harambee secondary school. The school is situated on a twenty acres land. The land was donated by the Catholic Church. The school was started to enable the children from the neighbouring primary school access secondary education as there was no secondary school in the vicinity.

    It has a favourable catchment area with many primary schools.  As a provincial school that performs well.  It is also attracting diverse students from central province.  Most people who neighbour the school are farmers with average income.  The payment of fees is a challenge that is gradually being overcome.  The school is community friendly and vice versa.  The school has a favourable communication network either from Nairobi, Naivasha or Nyahururu.  Njabini Boy neighbour St. Annuarite Girls, Catholic mission hospital, Njabini Catholic Church and Njabini police station.

     The past profile of school headship is as follows:

    3.1.5.   Resource Mobilization

    In the recent past, the  School has experienced cash flow problems due to reduced funding and accumulated debts. There is need to diversify and strengthen mobilization of both local and international funding. One way of dealing with the funding situation is to ensure good parental support and that school fees is paid promptly, as well as seek other donor partners to support projects in the school. In the light of increasing demand for additional funding, Njabini  School will seek to be more proactive in mobilizing its resources. The strategic objective will be “to mobilize the finance resources to meet our budgetary requirements”.

    This strategy will be achieved through several approaches:

    (a)    Mobilizing resources, both from government sources and other donors through grant writing, effective PR and soliciting donations in-kind.

    (b)   Income Generating Activities to ensure self-sustainability – water kiosk, farming (cows and vegetable farming).

    (c)    Parents Teachers Association activities such as targeted fund raising.

    Priority areas will include:

    ·         Prompt payment of fees

    ·         Training of BOG and PTA members on enhanced financial management and public procurement procedures

    ·         Ensure that the school has a workable budget and full compliance

    ·         Improve internal controls to limit loss of funds and also maintain cost containment

    ·         Commence several income generating activities

    ·         Improved school community relations

    3.3.      Conclusion

    The priorities in this strategic plan have been identified. The main purpose of this plan is to improve on organisational development and improve learning by fulfilling our obligations to enhance teaching and learning.  This will enable our students achieve the highest standards of learning, so that in turn they can attain their full potential in their future career. As appropriate, monitoring and evaluation will be undertaken in conjunction with partners within the various work plans. The next chapter identifies how the strategies already identified will be implemented.

    MONITORING PLAN - 2012


    The Monitoring plan provides for effective and efficient mechanism to enhance Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of the implementation of the Strategic Plan. This will assist in accounting for the realization of various objectives and any failure maybe addressed promptly or the strategy may be altered. If targets set are too ambitious or too soft then the team may review the strategic plan and make the necessary corrections. It will also help disseminate information on the status of the plan implementation.
