School fails to meet target

Kinoru Mixed Day Secondary School community in Imenti North Sub-county has taken last year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results to be an eye-opener on the importance of pursuing modalities of posting commendable results.

Speaking to KNA in her office, the school Principal, Penina Mutembei, said the results were very discouraging considering the efforts made and the high hopes of recording commendable results.

Mutembei said stakeholders were trying to accept the far from being proud of results, saying they had already resolved to move on as a team in re-strategizing on how to improve on the results going forward.

The Principal said everybody was committed to improving their academic performance, starting with the routine continuous assessment tests to the final national examination, with the purpose of erasing the seemingly shameful results.

She regretted that the school was not able to produce a single student qualifying to join the university since the best candidate scored a C minus, while the school’s overall performance stood at a 2.77 mean score, a drop from the previous 2.98.

Mutembei said since she reported to the school in February 2023, she was on a self-driven mission to create a conducive working environment within the school, along with fostering teamwork for better results.

“I lack words to express my disappointment in that the school failed to meet the set target of a 3.55 means score, yet the potential is there. Anyway, I strongly believe all is not gone, since there is another opportunity for us to prove our worth.” Mutembei said.

She was optimistic that the prevailing cordial working relationship between the board of management, teachers, students and non-teaching staff had taken shape and would propel the school to excellent academic and core-curricular performance.

The principal said all efforts were geared towards shaping an all-round individual student and national development against the backdrop of school competition.

Mutembei reiterated that the school performance strategy was all inclusive to strengthen the bond between all players and relevant stakeholders to successfully discover and develop potential into prosperity.

She appreciated the immeasurable support the school receives from the county government, saying there were enough classes and well-equipped laboratories, not forgetting the manageable staff establishment.
