Whilst the focus of education at Rusinga is Academic excellence and this is given top priority, the ICT department also believes that it has a greater purpose beyond preparing the young people for the challenges they would face in their colleges and university life. Equally important is that the department strives to make every students across the Kindergarten to the A-level nurtured and made to feel that his/her individual contribution is a valued part of the whole growth of this department. There is a wide range of activities both inside and outside the classroom that allow the children to develop their physical, spiritual and social skills in a positive environment.
The department interacts with all the students across the four sections. It also provides technical support in the offices apart from the academics. Watching how the young Kindergarten students navigate through the programs in the PCs is really amazing. The practical skills of the students in the preparatory school are clearly portrayed and not to mention how the students in the senior school are well equipped with both the practical and written skills in their final ICT exams. This has enabled the first batch of candidates to sit for the new ICT syllabus (O level) and applied ICT (A level) in addition to the old computer studies and computing syllabi.
The launch of the interactive smart board has make learning quite interactive. It is a facility which is used to teach all the subjects available in the BNC syllabus. We strive to make Rusinga school another silicon valley in terms of ICT technology.
