 STRATEGIC PLANS
 

Chogoria Girls has been working on a Five-Year Strategic Plan. The plan's

main objective is to guide the school through its developmental experie-

nces as smoothly as possible, and with optimal benefit. The CGHS Principal,

Mrs. Gitonga explains:


"Such a plan gives direction. It ensures that you are all working towards a

definite, common goal. It creates teamwork and focus. There is prioritization

of needs, which leads to the best allocation and utilization of resources.

That way, you end up with better results than if you had no plan.”

 
The man coordinating this very involving project, Mr. D.M Gitonga says

the plan is ready, and only awaits scrutiny by other stake holders before

getting officially launched. He adds that it is a highly realistic and feasible

plan;


“In fact the school has already started implementing some of the areas

earmarked in the plan like the upgrading of the water resource, the waste

disposal project, the bakery (which produces bread for the school) and

the school beautification programme.”


Mr. Gitonga extends his appreciation to the committee that has worked

tirelessly since last year, to develop this crucial tool for the well being of

the school. He also thanks the teachers for patiently going through the

whole plan and contributing in areas they felt required further input.
