Ganze and Kauma schools that scored only Ds in KCSE

Authorities have published results for the 2018 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination which shows that Ganze sub-county posted some of the poorest results in the county.

Results for Mayowe Secondary School in Kauma sub-county also show that 17 candidates scored grade E with just a single grade C.

Ganze has 19 public secondary schools.

The KCSE results analysis revealed that there was no grades A and A-, but there were 383 Ds, 283 D-, 201 D+, 123C, 58C, 32C+, 19B-, 4B and 3B+.

There were 28Es out of 1,135 KCSE candidates who sat KCSE.

Out of 120 and 110 candidates, Sokoke and Godoma secondary schools had 2B+,5B- and 1B+,6B- respectively.

Godoma also had 3Bs.
Ganze Girls had 3B- out of 125 candidates.

Mitangani Secondary School in Bamba for the first time in three years had one B- out of 117 candidates with an improvement mean score of 3.2.

In 2016 the school produced its first university student who scored a C+ and last year the highest student had a C-.

“Our Form One intake is low and it affects us.We are starting with 190 marks to 280 marks but we are are getting students with 220 marks.

We are struggling to take care of those who did not perform well, but if we can have entry marks of 300 then we can perform better,”said school principal Francis Ouma.

Since its first KCSE examination in 2016, the school has recorded 3Es
Magogoni , Shaka, Petanguo and Midoina secondary schools recorded the poorest performance with most students recording D+ and below.

They were the last four schools.
Out of 36 candidates, Magogoni had 3D+, 12D, 16D- and 1E.

Out of 41 candidates, Shaka had 5D+, 21D, 13D- and 2Es
Pentanguo had 41 candidates scoring 3(D+), 12(D), 19(D-) and 7Es.

Ganze MP Teddy Mwambire attributed lack of facilities in secondary schools to the poor performance.

“I have been complaining that our secondary schools have no laboratories, libraries and those important facilities that will provide a good learning environment for our students.

This is why our schools will always record poor results. Some of these schools do not have classrooms.

We will engage both parents and stakeholders on the need to invest in education,” said Mwambire.
However, he noted that students admitted in schools outside the sub-county perform better.

“We already have an A- from Alliance Boys and we are expecting to get more good results from students
who were admitted in schools outside Ganze,” he said.

The Standard also came across Baringo High School tentative KCSE merit list analysis that showed that three boys from Ganze had attained C+ that qualifies them to join university.

The MP said that there is a challenge among teachers finishing syllabus.
“The problem is teacher supervision.

The relevant officers are not doing their work,” he said.
Sauti ya Wanawake chair Judith Uchi said most students spend more time at home because of extra money asked by the schools.

“Schools ask for money to pay water and electricity bills, watchmen and teachers employed by parents and some parents cannot get the money meaning their children are sent back home,” said Uchi.

Education Executive Prof Gabriel Katana said primary schools in Ganze post excellent performance despite being ranked the poorest.

Midoina had 17 students and got 1D+, 2D 12D- and 2Es.
