Fire scare at St. George’s Girls High School, Nairobi

By For Citizen Digital

An inferno at Nairobi’s St. Georges Girls High School on Saturday night was successfully put out about an hour after it broke out.

Fire fighters from the Nairobi City County emergency department responded promptly after alarm was raised in a scare that occurs barely a week after 9 students lost their lives in a school-dorm fire at Moi Girls, Nairobi.

The blaze is said to have originated at the school’s kitchen, a few metres from a cooking gas storage area while students were in class.

At the time of going to press, reports indicated that all students were accounted for. The dining area and boarding facilities at the institution haven’t been affected.

“So far, no injuries and the cause of fire not known. Emergency Responders including the Nairobi City County Fire Fighters are fighting it and it is under control,” read a statement by National Disaster Management Unit, Deputy Director Mwachi Pius Masai reads.

“Members of the public are advised to keep off and allow The Emergency Responders to deal with the Incident,” Masai cautions.

Kenyans took to social media as the news broke to express their shock and worry over the sporadic incidents of school fires.

    There is a need for counselling the students during the examination period. The students MUST be advised and guided well so that as they approach the examinations their minds are at ease. The fear for examination should not be there. Another silent killer in the student’s mind is the approach from the parents once a student fails in exams. Some parents would neglect, abuse and discourage their children with all sorts of negative responses in the event of failure to perform in the examinations. Therefore the fear to examination is instilled by these arrogant and aggressive parents. By not accepting their capabilities some end up committing suicide. In my view there’s a need for parents to accept the ability and the potential of our brothers and sisters who might not perform in the classrooms however, might perform in life.
