Teachers, parents and pupils at Kings Education Centre Lugari Sub County were held up in day long celebrations after the school produced the best pupil in the sub county and fourth best in Kakamega County.
Stanley Adega Otwoma recorded an exemplary performance in the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Primary education (KCPE). Adega said he would like to join Alliance Boys High School after managing to get a total of 428 marks and would wish to be an architect in future. “I expected to get good results but not as good as this and I would like to pursue further education and become an architect,” he explained.
His parents Mr. Caleb Nabemo and Loice Otwoma were pleased with the good performance saying their son was very hardworking and was a well disciplined boy, which contributed to his success in the 2019 KCPE
According to the school’s head teacher Mr. James Agesa, the school’s performance could be attributed to cordial relations between the school management, parents, teachers, pupils and entire community. “All I can say is that these are wonderful results, very unexpected yes the pupils were working hard and we expected good results but not as good as they came out. I particularly want to thank the teachers, the parents and the young boy Stanley together with his colleagues. They worked very hard as a team and were ready to help each other in class, something unique among pupils, and because of that we ended up with very good results and we hope our top pupils will get a chance at very good national schools,” said Agesa.
The school managed a mean score of 348 with 18 out of 19 candidates who sat the exams in the school managing to score above 300 marks.
Other schools that performed well included Sunrise Valley academy where the lead candidate scored 413 marks, Green Embers Academy where the top pupil scored 405 marks, Lumakanda Upendo Academy where the lead student Gigs Ayieka managed 403 marks..
Lumakanda Upendo Academy Director attributed the good results to tireless efforts put in by both teachers, parents and pupils and also committing themselves to God.
