November: KCPE results

In November we received the results of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE). The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) is a certificate awarded to students after completing the approved eight-year course in primary education in Kenyans. The examination is supervised by the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC), an examining body in Kenya under the Ministry of Education.

The 18 children of Save Children of Hope who are in class 8 (in Kenya an 8-4-4 system is used) participated in this exam:

  • One student achieved more than 350 out of 500. According to the internal regulations of S.C.o.H., we will support him in his further secondary education through a boarding school.
  • Eleven students gained between 250 and 350. They will be further supported by S.C.o.H. in a 'day' secondary school.
  • Six pupils achieved less than 250 out of 500. These students will also be supported by Save Children of Hope through a two-year vocational training (polytechnic).

These 18 children will join in 2018 with the 44 children who are already be supported by Save Children of Hope in their secondary education.

We expect the results of the Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) at the end of December/beginning of January..

3 more students to university

3 of 7 SCoH students who have completed their secondary education in 2016, scored higher than the minimum limit to be invited by a university.

When you consider that most members of their family were/are not in the possibility to even go to a secondary school, we see is as a great result.

Save Children of Hope will continue to support these students in their school career.

Warm wishes for 2017
