Brookhouse School’s parents have moved to court in protest against payment of full school fees amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The parents, who note that Brookhouse is globally respected and has over 64 schools, accuse it of seeking to exploit parents and guardians amid an unprecedented business disruption.

The parents note that globally, the board of Cambridge Assessment International Examination has cancelled IGSCE exams worldwide yet Brookhouse has opted to grade students using past mock exam results.

They say the school is also charging them higher fees, including the share for cancelled exams, without considering the cost of the unregulated online learning that is they say is burdensome to them.

The parents add that other schools using the British curriculum have given school fees discounts yet they have not been presented with such an offer, hence the allegation of immense exploitation.

They further complain that their rights under the Consumer Protection Act have been violated.

“The act of the school, of offering so-called online or virtual classes at the same rate of fees and charges, amounts to a contravention of consumer rights, violates the Constitution and is unfair and unlawful,” said Mr Ahmednassir Abdullahi, their lawyer.

The parents want the court to compel the school to stop charging them full school fess and offset up to 30 per cent of the fees for term three of this year.

They asked the court not to disclose their names so as to protect the identities and rights of their children.

If Simon Peter, 24, was born without disability, he would have been in his final year at the University. But since he is a special needs child, he is now at Grade 4.

Born in Chikudum, South Sudan, Simon a refugee at the Kakuma Camp was born with a condition known as Hemiplegia: paralysis of half of the body. His disability made him join school at an advanced age as he had no wheelchair to help him reach a school, most of which were far from home. His chance to join school came only when his family moved to a city.

“Growing up with Hemiplegia has been challenging. I never got a chance to socialise and play with other children. I was indoors often. There was no school that could enrol me because of my condition. I started class one in 2016 at the age of 14,” he says.

However, due to political instability and war in South Sudan in 2018, Simon’s education was halted. When he came to Kenya in 2019, he immediately enrolled in Future Primary School in Kakuma Refugee Camp and joined Class Three through the help of Finn Church Aid Special Needs Education project. The organisation issued him with a wheelchair.

“I used to carry him wherever he needed to go. It is a relief that I can wheel him to school, and he manages the school day by himself while I report to other duties. Then I pick him up after the classes”, says Simon’s guardian Mark Loyiel.

Simon now mingles with his classmates, all younger than him and has made new friends and family. His classmates are friendly and usually make sure they get to him to all the places he is supposed to be.

The project also trains teachers on inclusive education that bridges language barriers of refugee learners and prepares teachers to meet their needs.

So far the project has trained 69 teachers and supported 275 children and youth with disabilities that live in the refugee camp to go back to school by getting wheelchairs, stationaries, textbooks, school uniforms and food. They also actively involve parents and guardians in supporting the special needs education.
