From Wednesday, Parents whose children did KCPE early this year got ready to take their Form one students to different schools across the country.
Mauvoo News took a tour of different schools in Matungulu and Kangundo Subcounty to establish how the intakes were going on and if the parents and teachers had any challenges.
In Matungulu girls 400 students were expected to join Form One in the school where the school Principal Madam Lucy Kariuki revealed that the ministry had been kind to them by giving them enough teachers. The school emerged to be the second performing school in Matungulu sub-county in KCSE 2021.
Katwanyaa Secondary which is a mixed day and boarding school by Friday had 180 students reporting for form one but they were expecting more to reach their target of 250 students.
David Muange, Principal Katwanyaa Secondary revealed that they had fewer facilities when it came to accommodating the students but they were hopeful that they would get more facilities as time goes. He further called on the Ministry of Education through the Teachers Service Commission to deploy more teachers to the school.
“We are grateful for the students that we are receiving our plea is to the Teachers Service Commission to deploy more teachers to the school as there is a shortage of teachers,” Muange said.
In Tala Satelite, the Director Jackline Ngina King’ola said that most parents had requested for them to bring their children next week sighting fees challenges and the thought economic times.
“Am grateful to God for the exemplary performance that we witnessed in last year’s KCSE and want to thank our teachers. We are on with the admission of Form Ones but we have a challenge where most parents do not have the ability to pay for school fees which is a great challenge to the parents and us teachers,” she said.
Kinyui Girls was expecting more than 250 students and they also called upon the government to help in the construction of more classes and infrastructure.
Kangundo High School which had an improvement in their mean score in KCSE 2021 also requested for more teachers to be deployed in the school. The school was expecting to have 192 students join Form one.
