The County Executive said, H.E Governor Sakaja has relentlessly continued supporting Educational matters in the County. Through his stewardship, our ECDE teachers are trained in Co-curricular helping our learners to shine.  “I have great hope in Nairobi region’s Children of all levels as witnessed in the previous co-curricular activities. Co-curricular and especially Drama and Film are known to have countless benefits.”

She said “Through dramatic play, our children learn to communicate, cooperate, and problem-solve. They step into different roles, explore diverse perspectives, and develop empathy and understanding for others. Similarly, in the realm of filmmaking, they learn to observe, interpret, and convey their ideas and emotions through visual storytelling.”

Ms. Kariuki Said that the event is not just a showcase of talent; it’s a testament to the dedication and hard work of our educators, who have nurtured and guided our children along this creative journey. It’s a testament to the unwavering support of our parents, who have encouraged and championed their children’s artistic endeavors every step of the way.
