CONGRATULATIONS TO 2014 CANDIDATE CLASS;MORPHINE AOKO SETS A NEW RECORD
Congratulations to 2014 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education(K.C.S.E) candidate class!The school recorded its best results since it started.The performance was an improvement on the 2012 and 2013 results.This marks the third year in a row that the school has registered improved results .And for the second year,the best student overall was a girl.In 2013,the top student scored A minus,and was the first girl to top her class and also score an A minus.She's currently in a medical school studying to become a doctor.
For the first time in the history of the school,the top student scored a mean grade of A plain!Morphine Aoko always aspired to be the best .This places her among the top 900 girls in the country.Out of over 400,000 thousand students that sat for KCSE last year in Kenya,fewer than 1000 girls scored grade A plain.Around 2000 boys score A plain,and most of the top students generally attend boarding schools.We are so proud of our top student,who despite attending a day school,and walking to school from Kibera slums everyday,emerged as one of the best candidates in the country.Two boys scored A minus.
We are happy for our 2014 candidate class for the good performance.We thank our donors for the continued support.Together,we will continue to transform lives inspired by our shared desire to provide quality education to orphans from Kibera slums who would otherwise not afford.
Morphine shares her story and joy below:
I am so overwhelmed and happy beyond words. I Just could not resist to smile and shout when I received the news that I had Scored an A plain of 81 out of the possible maximum 84 points, with 5As’, 2 B+ and an A-. It was quite fulfilling as I had lived all my life believing I was the best. I always saw a successful girl in me who had a great determination and zeal to study hard. I spent every moment in school making the best out of me. I always believed that everyone had great potential in them only if they dig deeper.
This Philosophy enabled me get where I am today. I also dreamed of going to the best University, I am so grateful for the supportive people who surrounded me. My mother who was, is and will always be my strength, friends, teachers, mentors .I'm especially grateful to all the donors and and our supporters who help us realize our dreams. And above all God who made this a reality.
