A carnival mood engulfed Matunda Day Salvation Army Secondary school
in Likuyani Sub County as teachers, parents and students joined the rest in acknowledging
impressive results following its sterling performance in this year’s Kenya certificate of
secondary education (KCSE).
According to the school principal Mary Manyonge, top three candidates Obwama Duncan Ochieng, Amukoma Collins and Omiero Lameck Nyauni managed grade A- (minus) each.
However, the principal of Matunda regretted the school posted a negative deviation of 0.1 after managing a mean of 6.2 compared to the 6.3 registered last year.
“This year we had more students in Ds which affected our mean but we thank God for the results,” said Mrs. Manyonge adding that despite the negative deviation, the number of those who managed minimum university entry has increased by 1 compared to last year.
Expressing her satisfaction with the results the principal commended the cordial relationship the school enjoyed from the community
She said hardwork, commitment and cooperation between parents and the school management played a crucial role in the success of the school revealing that out of 152 candidates who sat the exam in the school 65 scored C+ and above.
The school managed 3 A-, 8 B+, 10 B, 17B-, 27 C+ , 25C, 26C- 28D+ and 8D. “This year grade A eluded us,” said Mrs. Manyonge who pledged better performance in future.
