Kenyans on social media expressed their shock after learning the amount of tuition fee a private Nairobi school charges per term.
This came after one online user shared the fee structure of Peponi House Preparatory School on social media.
The fee structure dated July 1st, 2019 was sent to parents by the institution’s headmaster in the form of a letter and stated the amount to be paid for the academic year 2019/2020.
The letter listed Sh632,285 as the amount to be paid as tuition fees, Sh21,000 for sports club and Sh11,000 for the hiring of musical instruments. The document did not state whether the amount was for day scholars or boarders.
“I am happy to say that this is a zero percent increase in fees for this year,” the principal Robert Blake concludes in the letter.
Here are some reactions from Kenyans online;
“Ni fees ama wanauza plots?” Moffat Wesley posed.
“I’m so glad they did not increase fees this academic term .I’d be so dead. This is junior school. I pay double for my teen daughter in the same school. It’s very affordable I wonder why people are ranting. Taping from dreamland. Dreams do come true,” Winny Knight noted.
“Can I take my child there as a musical instrument?” Gacengeci Shadrack posed.
“This is what ‘Waweke mahali pema Peponi’ means after all,” Deejay Gavnah said.
“Watu wa polling station tuko tu sawa,” Rachel Gitimu said.
“When the 11K for hiring instruments is way others pay for a whole year….. The haves n have not’s is real,” Eve Eva commented.
“Hire a musical instrument is our termly school fees. Kweli hii dunia tuliescort wengine. uhai is importanter,” Wakahiu Wairimu noted.
“I pay 1,000 termly for sports and still complain. I surrender. Lanes tu,” Min Jabali stated.
“600k per month and someone affords to send more than 2 kids there? Kenya should not be categorized as a Third World country. We should be mentioned in the leagues of USA, China, Russia,” Waithira Wagachira said.
