Ecstatic scenes as KBC presenters reward pupils in surprise visit

Pupils from two schools in Nyeri and Meru counties were treated to a surprise visit by the national broadcaster KBC radio presenters.

The learners from Kiandu and Mulanthakari primary schools had a fun-filled day interacting with radio personalities from the KBC English Service and KBC Radio Taifa.

Amid the excitement,  the young learners were gifted with radio sets, with which they will now be able to follow Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) educational radio broadcasts aired on KBC in partnership with the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).

The presenters put a smile on the faces of the young learners who were nominated by the stations’ ardent followers.

The two stations have been giving listeners an opportunity to nominate exceptional schools that win radio sets through the radio in the classroom activation programme launched by KBC last month.

For the Kiandu pupils, lady luck smiled on them through Irungu Ndirangu, a KBC English Service’s Sundowner enthusiast who nominated the school. They were treated to entertainment even as the youngsters got an opportunity to showcase different talents and commentary skills.

“This radio set is a crucial teaching resource that shall convey radio lessons in the classroom. It will help the pupils to keep abreast with the informative programmes, Covid-19 guidelines and news happening across the country” he said.
