Friends School Lukhokho Secondary in Lwandeti Ward, Matete Sub-County, looks forward to posting impressive results in the upcoming KCSE 2022 and not letting down its patron, Lugari MP Nabii Nabwera.
The Deputy Principal, Ms. Metrine Wamalwa, said the candidate’s class, made up of 67 candidates, projects a mean of 5.1 and eight university entry grades.
In KCSE 2017, the school had only two out of 111 students scoring university entry grades and posted a mean score of 3.01.
The same university entries were recorded in KCSE 2018 after 105 students sat for the exam, slightly raising the school’s mean to 3.1.
In KCSE 2019, an improvement was posted both on the mean and the university entries, as the school received 3.6 and 5 out of 94 students, respectively.
The mean improved in KCSE 2020 to 3.8, but the university entries dropped to only two out of 116 students, the same as in KCSE 2021 when the school recorded a mean of 3.95. It had a candidature of 74 that year.
“We are okay now. We cleared the syllabus towards the end of the third term, and students have had enough time to revise in preparation for the coming exam. The school has been performing well in mock exams,” Ms. Wamalwa said while in her office.
She noted that there were no serious cases that would affect the students’ performance.
She thanked the area MP, Nabii Nabwera, for choosing to be the patron of the school and asked him to invest in teachers’ and students’ motivation as he works to improve education quality in his constituency.
This table is a summary of the school’s performance in the last five national exams.
