St. Paul’s Lugari Boys High school has broken the glass ceiling after its top candidate in the just announced KCSE 2022 scored an A- (minus).
Festus Mudavadi, who did his KCPE at the sibling St. Paul’s Lugari Primary School and got 350 marks, is now setting a standard for the school that has been wallowing in poor results in the recent past.
Lugari Boys had the top candidate in KCSE 2021 getting a B+ (plus) as the school recorded a mean of 4.38 points.
Mudavadi scored 75 aggregate points, sweeping almost all the points in Agriculture in which he scored an A (plain). He got a B (plain) in English, an A- (minus) in Kiswahili, an A- (minus) in Maths, a B+ (plus) in Biology, an A- (minus) in Physics, a B+ (plus) in Chemistry, and an A- (minus) in Christian Religious Education (CRE).
Mr. Wilson Olenja, the school’s Director of Studies, had earlier expressed optimism in this year’s class and particularly in this student.
“I told you,” the teacher said in a brieft interview after the Education CS, Ezekiel Machogu, announced the results nationally.
Mudavadi said it is sheer hard work, discipline, and self-drive that have guaranteed his good performance.
“These are the values that I embraced to get the good results. I am very grateful to all the teachers at St. Paul’s and particularly Mr. Wilson Olenja who held my hand until I have reaped big,” he said in an interview with the Western Kenya Times.
The brilliant student revealed that he would like to join the University of Nairobi to pursue dental surgery.
