Trans Nzoia County leaders have lauded their local schools for posting sterling performance in the recently released Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examinations (KCSE).

Led by Trans Nzoia County Women Rep Janet Nangabo, the schools are celebrated as centres of modern discipline that is a prerequisite for success in any career.

Nangabo, who spoke to People Daily in Kitale on Thursday, named St Joseph's Girls Kitale as a perfect example of a school that registered quality grades as a result of discipline.

The extra-county school posted a mean score of 9.95 from the previous mean score of 6.7.

Another school St Anthony Boys, an extra-county school too, improved its mean score to 8.73 from the 7.8 it attained in 2019.

Other leaders who congratulated the learning institutions are Rift Valley Regional Coordinator George Natembeya, Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa and Kiminini Member of Parliament Chris Wamalwa.

"I salute teachers, students and parents for their unity which has led to the best results," Natembeya said.

"Congratulations to teachers, students, parents and the Ministry of Education under for the enabling environment that has seen our schools emerge top ", CS Eugene said.

Kitale Catholic Bishop Anthony Maurice Crowley in an interview with the People Daily in his office Thursday lauded the success of the Catholic-sponsored schools and asked others to follow suit.

St Joseph’s Girls Principal Rosebella Olwaru said the early completion of the syllabus had made the dreams of the school come true after they hit the 9.95 mean score.

"We covered the syllabus by March before the school closed down due to covid-19 pandemic and this gave our students enough time to revise and set their target," said Orwaru.

The school registered 2A's, 65A-, 132B+, 57B's, 23 B-, 6 C+, 1C and 1 C-.

At St Anthony Boys, the Principal Mr Victor Makanda cited motivation and sacrifices between students and teachers enabled the school to post an improvement.

"We scaled up coverage of the syllabus and when our school was picked by Football of Kenya Federation FKF centre of excellence in March, it motivated our students too," said Makanda.

Moses Oruma, the principal St Patrick Makunga said the school had initiated a reward program for students and teachers, this he said had boosted performance from 6.8 in 2019 to 7.1.

"We identified our previous weaknesses and improve on it. The reward program also had a hand in the outcome of the results," Oruma told the People Daily in an interview.

The school has a big number of students from poor background.
