Kahuhia Girls Maintain Upward Trajectory

Kahuhia Girls High School in Murang’a County has emerged among the best performers in this year’s KCSE exams.


In the results announced on Wednesday by Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha, the school’s top three students - Rosemary Kahuthu, Mercy Kuria and Emily Kariuki - tied after scoring straight As of 82 points.

They were among the top five girls nationally.

The school posted a mean score of 8.535 points, compared to a score of 7.947 it posted last year.

A total of 240 candidates out of the 268 who wrote the exams scored C+ and above, guaranteeing them entry into universities.

The school had 25 candidates scoring A-, 56 scored B+, 57 (B), 50 (B-) and 47 (C+). Only 29 candidates scored grades below C+.

School principal Naomi Njihia said in an interview that teamwork and dedication from both teachers and students led to the good
performance.

“The secret to our success is a cohesive relationship among the Board of Management, parents, teachers, school workers and students,” said Ms Njihia.

The leading girl, Rosemary Kahuthu (pictured), said she wants to pursue medicine at university.

“I hope to get a scholarship to study in Harvard in the US,” said Rosemary.

Ruth Wangeci, who scored 331 in KCPE, managed to score A-. She was the most improved student.

Kahuhia Girls is one of Kenya’s oldest schools. It was founded by the Church Missionary Society in 1902.

For a long time, it was ran as a college before it was changed into a girls’ secondary school in 1959.

Media owner SK Macharia is a notable alumnus. He studied at the institution when it was still a college.

While the school is currently run by the government, it is categorised as one of the institutions sponsored by the Anglican Church of Kenya.

Njihia stressed that examinations should not be used to make learners feel like failures.

She said even those who did not score university entry points still have a good
future.

“Where there is a will, there is a way.

All candidates should look forward to the future with hope,” said Njihia.
