Covid-19 Preparations.

September 2020 First Aid Room Report  

( One of the monthly reports by Mrs. Anne Mwangi, School Nurse

Once again I take this opportunity to write the report with a grateful heart to God for His continued presence and assurance in our day to day activities, I choose to commit my ways to Him that He may make my paths straight. We all looked forward with great expectations to have our students back to school especially our candidates but it never came to pass. Our faith remains in God who has kept us all safe and secure during this trying moment of the pandemic, we know He has a good plan for us all. 

Highlights of the Month

 

As an institution we have continued to observe the MOH COVID 19 Prevention Protocol in our workplace. Wearing of face masks, hand sanitation and maintenance of physical distance has become our norm. 

 

The school has also provided two cloth masks for all the staff members who are coming to work, soap and water at every designated point and relevant posters displaying COVID 19 Prevention messages are in place. 

 

All visitors coming to our offices are also reminded to wear masks before entry to any room and this has been well adopted. 

 

We also held meetings with the teachers and then the support staff to sensitize them on COVID issues and reminded them of their important role in maintaining proper sanitation throughout the institution which they have faithfully done.  

 

The corridor between the Main office, Computer room and Grade four classes has been well marked with white paint to enable maintain physical distance of 1.5 M, same will be extended to the other corridors when funds are available.  

 

The construction work to provide hand wash basins for the pit latrines has begun and this is a step in ensuring good hand hygiene as the schools prepare for re-opening.  

 

I attended a training by AMREF University
on – Empowering Healthcare workers to combat Covid 19 Pandemic. It was a very eye opening training. The units covered: - History
