Borabu District did Nyamira County proud by taking fifth position nationally in the 2013 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education.

Borabu emerged fifth with a mean score of 280 marks as Mumias led with a mean score of 297 followed by Athi River (291), Isinya (290) and Kirinyanga Central (282), tying with Mathira East, Makueni, Westlands and Kisumu Municipality.

The district, which has 68 primary schools, produced the top five schools in the county.

St Andrew’s Kaagwa Boys Academy topped Nyamira County and produced the best pupil, Robert Atambo Polycarp, who attained 431 marks.

Borabu Hillside Academy was ranked second in the county followed by Eronge SDA Primary and Zaon Academy that topped the exam in 2012.

St Andrew’s Kaagwa Girls closed the list of the top five schools in the county. St Andrew’s Kaagwa Boys Academy, located  a few kilometres from Nyansiongo town, took fourth position nationally.

The school’s head teacher Joseph Nyachio attributed the good results to hard work and commitment from teachers and learners. He added that parents were supportive of the school’s initiative to post good results.

“We had covered the syllabus by July and embarked on revision. We are glad to have produced the top boy in the county. Our focus is to improve this result and produce the best pupil in the entire country next year,” he said.
