Bukalama Primary School in Matayos where a storm left a trail of destruction last week had a low turnout of pupils yesterday.
The school has a population of over 1,000 children.
The school head teacher Steven Okello said they were not in a position to repair the classrooms due to lack of funds.
According to Mr Okello, the low turnout of the pupils was a blessing in disguise.
“We are appealing to well-wishers to come and help us in repairing the classrooms,” said Okello. His sentiment was echoed by school’s chairman Michael Okumu.
Meanwhile, a spot check by The Standard revealed that public schools reopened yesterday but few pupils showed up.
