Pupils, parents, and teachers at Precious Talents Academy have joined the rest of the country, in celebrating the just-released 2019 KCPE results.
Their celebration is at a higher level, however, granted the circumstances under which the 28 candidates sat their examinations.
At the time of the test, the school was still mourning the death of eight pupils who were crushed under the rubble of a collapsed classroom block on Sep. 23.
The students were thereafter forced to sit their examinations in unfamiliar schools, such as the Ngong Forest Primary School after the government shut down the institution.
Nevertheless, three of the candidates managed to score above 400 marks, just around 40 points shy of the top candidate, Andy Munyiri, who scored 440 marks.
One Grace Achieng led the Precious Talents pack with 408 marks, as Nicole Swangera followed closely with 405 marks.
Third-placed Martim Mwangi scored 402 marks.
All pupils surpassed the 250 points PassMark, with the school’s mean score standing at 346 points.
