THE NEW TECHNOLOGY IN ENVIRONMENT CLUB E.SC. MUSANZE

 

The environment is one of the major resources that help development of our country, especially economically through the development of tourism. Is that why Ecole des Sciences de Musanze founded the Environment Club to enhance sustainability of our surrounding environment.

But this can not be achieved without cooperation of students and their leaders. This is why our school wanted the students to think about the surrounding environment, taking care of all the living things especially those nearest to our school. Existence of the environment including animals, forests, water, etc. demands taking measures to sustain these resources. This is the key fact by which in our daily school life we are invited to take care of our school inclusions. Speaking to Media club, the president of our school Environment Club, RUKUNDO Prosper, declared that all achievements are made with the aide of the KARISOKE RESEARCH CENTER. He added that to enhance stable existence is to heighten the life expectancy of all living things. By this reasoning, on 19th May to 21st May 2011, the KARISOKE RESEARCH CENTER organized training about scientific research. This training workshop, entitled “Citizen Science,” took place at Fatima Pastoral Center. Trainees were instructed how to carry out their own research on any given animal by using pictures taken during practical, along with other methods. RUKUNDO added that the training will help citizens learn how to live with animals of different kinds, to protect them from hunters or invaders, and to recognize the importance of the animals, especially birds which aid in pollination.

To enhance their daily activities, trainees used various materials including a computer, digital camera and binoculars to help them during their research at the school.

Jean Damascène NTURANYENABO, one of the teachers in charge of the daily activities of the Environment Club, spoke to Media Club. NTURANYENABO said that this training will help the Environment Club in its daily activities, especially during their research on birds. They will study bird habits and adaptations to the environment.

MODERN LIBRARY : THE FUTURE IMAGE OF OUR SCHOOL.

Libraries are one of the major infrastructures that can back the succeeding levels of learners in a school or college. Anyone from any area of the world can borrow books for research, read  newspapers, or borrow CDs, which can enable the learner to increase his knowledge depending on his aim. However, those who have it in their hands are the lucky few.

This library comes in eager circumstance.

 

While students of Ecole des Sciences de MUSANZE were commenting on the insufficient accommodation for books to aid in course-related research, they also added that their downfall of maximizing the national examinations was due to the lack of books contained in the small library building. In the last academic year of 2010, after observing the students’ needs in their learning and in order to increase the students’ grades and the school sovereignty at the national level, the school Headmaster, Fr Jean Claude MBONIMPA , announced the issue to the parents of students educated in this school. Fortunately the parents understood this as awakening someone who was waking up .  Building construction began during the long holidays of the 2010 academic year. Straightaway, the action is going on even if it is still far from completion.

The school Headmaster notified us that it will take a long time to build this library because it will be the tower with two floors. To better understand the students’ opinions concerning these developments, we interviewed some of them. F. Regis MUGWANEZA, a student in senior five MCB said, “This is a good thing from our leaders as excellent also reference school. We will never give up our aims of being references, according to this library which comes to strengthen and reinforcing us.”

Even if this building costs many millions of Rwandan francs, it is conspicuous that the action is going on well. Therefore, it is our opportunity to endeavour and search for knowledge as it is feasible. Again, as a reminder, this library will not be used only by students from this school but also all willing persons from different neighbourhoods of the country. Please, wake up!
