Macho Muslim Primary School, situated in Munge Village in Mautuma Ward of Lugari Sub-county, Kakamega County, is well-prepared as the 2022 KNEC begin on March 7, 2022.
The school is one of the best-performing in the region, having emerged among the top five among public schools in Lugari Sub-county in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).
The stunning performance saw four students secure Equity Bank’s Wings to Fly scholarship, two receiving KCB’s Elimu Foundation sponsorship, and one being offered a bursary by the CDF.
Great anticipation for this year’s KCPE
Speaking to the Western Kenya Times, Macho’s headteacher, Mr. Protus Sisa, said that the school is well prepared for this year’s exams.
“My school’s performance in both internal and external exams is promising, no doubt about it. I want to assure the community that pupils are ready to conquer this exam,” he said.
In addition, he thanked the school community and other stakeholders for their support.
The school will be presenting 120 candidates for the national exam, compared to last year’s 108.
“This shows how good we are in this region and the support we get from the community and educational stakeholders,” the proud headteacher said.
Indeed, the school has seen its enrollment shoot up to 1180 because of the confidence built in the community due to good performance. Another factor that has led to this positive impact is that the staff are self-driven and work closely with learners.
Despite some challenges like inadequate infrastructure, learning materials and a shortage of teachers, the school is sure to beat all odds and emerge among the best in this year’s exams.
