According to the school's principal, David Amunga, this years examination results were among the best in the school's history.

“Being ranked among the best in the country is the best news we have received so far,” said an elated Mr Amunga.

He attributed the good performance to discipline and hard work by the students.

“Discipline is our first chore. That is why we have managed to achieve this," he said.

He also praised the collaboration between teachers, students and their parents.

“We work as members of one community and this has also played a lot in getting these results,” he said.

The school takes in students whose parents and guardians cannot afford school fees.

“We are proud of what they have achieved," said Amunga.
