Speaking during the tour, the Director, Engineering and Technical Services Department Mr. D. G. Nyatoti was hopeful that the project would be completed by mid November 2017 and the enrollment of students at the school would commence in January 2018. Though affected by the heavy rains the nation received, the project is progressing well.
Council is using funds from the Education Levy which was set up sometime in 2015 after having noted that the City was lagging behind in terms of educational infrastructural development. Upon completion of the Hobhouse primary school project, the Director, Engineering and Technical Services Department, Mr. D. G. Nyatoti advised that Council would move to Morningside, where a site had already been identified for the construction of a new school.
