Competition between three neighbouring public schools in Nandi County continued to yield fruit after candidates posted impressive marks in this year's KCPE results.
The schools, all in Sangalo, Mosop Constituency have over the years been in a tough and healthy academic competition that has seen candidates secure slots in National schools across the country.
Yesterday, officials in the schools – St Mathews Septonok, St Peter’s Sangalo Central and All Saints Kamoiywo preparatory – were still compiling results, but they said score margins between pupils were too close.
At St Mathews Septonok, the top pupil was Lyne Jerotich who scored 432 marks, Bett Abel Kipkoech had 415, Some Brian Kiprono 411 and Ruto Debora Jepkorir 406.
At St Peter’s Sangalo Central, Godwin Kipruto scored 435 marks, Nafthali Talam 428, June Jerono and Griffins Kiptanui tied at 427, Victor Kibichii 424 and Kipchumba Kirwa had 423.
At nearby All Saints Kamoiywo preparatory, Trevor Monari had 416, Sheilla Jeruto 414, Brigid Chepkoech Koskei 408 and Ryan Komen had 404.
The schools have maintained their tradition and their managements say a healthy competition is reason for the exemplary performance.
Isaac Magut, the Head Teacher St Mathews Septonok said discipline and commitment among students, parents and teachers was a factor. “We registered 85 candidates in this year’s KCPE and we expect more than 15 candidates to score over 400 marks. Last year, 41 candidates from our school secured places in National Secondary schools,” Mr Magut said.
Josephat Serem, who chairs the board of management at St Peter’s Sangalo Central said the institution had 68 candidates this year. “Competition between our neighbouring schools has been so healthy," he added.
