Nine candidates scored between 250 and 300 marks, while the last, Pheny Anyango, got 241. Some candidates said they worked hard so that in future they would improve the condition of their school. “I want to be an architect so that I can build this school in future,” said Ronald Odhiambo who scored 349 marks. Headteacher Dismas Achacha said bad weather could force them to stop lessons. Whenever heavy rainfall was looming, he would send pupils home to avert a disaster.
