School celebrates first 'A' Grade ever in KCSE

04 March 2015, 09:37 Makena Laban

Mt Elgon - Students and teachers from Kipsis Day Secondary school in Cheptais sub-County in Mt Elgon took to the streets to celebrate their first Grade A (plain) in Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (K.C.S.E) since the school started.

The school’s best candidate in the region in last year's exams, Donald Wanyonyi had a mean grade of an A (plain) with 81 points.

This is apparently the only A scored in the entire Cheptais sub-County.

The School Principal, Josephine Chemos said despite the school being a District school, the recent results are up from 5.11 to 5.78 with two students scoring B+, five B, six B and thirteen C+.

“As a school, we have improved and are hopeful for better performance. We have various constraints hindering education like students having to walk long distances to reach school, limited resources as they have to learn under a tree for lack of classrooms, desks, laboratory and library,” said Chemos.

Mt Elgon has for a long time been marginalized in all sectors including education, health and infrastructure.
