Schools in Rift Valley overcome hurdles to post good results

A school in Baringo County that had not sat for Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) because of security challenges has posted impressive results.


Four of its candidates scored more than 300 marks.

Nakoko Primary in Silale ward of Tiaty Sub-County was started 46 years ago but none of its pupils had ever sat national examinations due to banditry attacks in the area.

According to the headteacher, Mr Fredrick Kamurkutwo, among the 17 candidates who sat the exam, the best candidate scored 326 marks out of 500.

“We have set a mark which we hope to improve on next year,” he said.

Evans Kanyakera Abong scored 326, Sheila Chepon 321, Wycliff Kanyakera 314 and Rodgers Naduma 308 respectively.

In Turkana Erait Academy in Lodwar, which produced the best candidate last year with 430 marks, has again emerged top in the county with two out of its 53 candidates attaining over 400 marks.

Headteacher Samson Kitur said that 43 of the candidates scored 300 marks and above.

Charles Lopeyok scored 414 marks and was the top candidate in the county.

However, celebrations at the school were put on hold because Charles lives a long way away from the school and was not expected there until today.

In Uasin-Gishu County, Greenvale Academy in Eldoret posted impressive results after 23 of its 68 candidates at the school scored over 400 marks while 40 others scored over 350.

The top student, Natasha Nyandika, scored 431 marks and hopes to join the Kenya High School.

A HAPPY LOT
Headteacher Charles Okwiri attributed the good result to cooperation and teamwork between teachers and the school management.

Eldoret’s Potters House Academy also posted impressive results with 13 year-old Joel Simon Opar emerging top with 417 marks.

This year’s performance lifted the school’s mean score to 367, up from last year’s 350. The best pupil had 412 marks last year.

“I can’t wait to join one of those national schools that I have been admiring,” said Opar, whose grandfather, Mr Zephaniah Balidawa, was East Africa’s first Aeronautical Engineer and pilot.

At Kitale School in Trans Nzoia County, teachers were all smiles saying the results they had received so far had indicated that the 194 candidates had posted better performance compared to last year despite the fact that learning was disrupted as result of the teachers’ strike.

“We are glad that the highest results we have received is 437 which is above the highest mark the top candidate posted last year,” said the school’s headteacher, Ms Margaret Wanyonyi.

“We also have more than 15 students with over 400 marks so far.”

The pupil who had scored the 437 marks was a boy, Victor Kiptoo, while the top girl, Samantha Kariuki, had scored 418 basing on the marks the school had received 3pm.

Teachers in some schools were yet to get results for their candidates. - Daily Nation, Thursday, 31st December 2015
