visually impaired students showcase exceptional musical talent

In an awe-inspiring display of talent and determination, learners from St. Francis School for the Visually Impaired in West Pokot have defied all odds and proved their musical talent has no bounds.

As they advanced to the regional competition, they faced talented competitors from various schools across the Rift Valley region at Maasai Mara University in Narok County, where the music festivals were held.

Despite the tough competition, the students’ heartfelt performance and the emotional depth of their music left an indelible mark, propelling them to clinch the top position and earn their spot at the highly coveted national stage.

Under the guidance of dedicated teachers and the relentless support of their school community, the students demonstrated unparalleled focus, rehearsing tirelessly to deliver a performance that would forever be etched in the minds of those fortunate enough to have witnessed it.

Jamin Ndibile, their trainer, expressed satisfaction and joy at his students’ stellar performance and their ability to overcome challenges through music.

“The school is committed to nurturing the talents of all students, regardless of their physical limitations. This achievement serves as a testament to the potential that lies within each individual,” Ndibile emphasised.

Judges at the fete, moved by the sheer brilliance of the visually impaired students, unanimously declared St. Francis School as the overall winners in their category.

The elation that followed their victory was palpable, with tears of joy and pride streaming down the faces of students, teachers, and supporters.

Teresa Moseti, a teacher, said St. Francis has been a home of champions, adding that other learners from the institution had previously participated in international Paralympic championships in France and Morocco.

As the learners return to West Pokot as Rift Valley champions, their performance will continue to serve as an inspiration to others. It also demonstrates that, with dedication and passion, nothing is impossible.
