Congratulations to the Class of 2016!

Congratulations to the Class of 2016!

On March 3, students across Kenya were both excited and apprehensive to learn the results of the 2015 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE), which were released by Education Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i that day. 

We are proud to say that EFAC scholars out-performed their peers by a very sizable margin, with 100% of our students qualifying for university placements.  EFAC scholars averaged a B+ on the KCSE, while the national performance average was a D+. 

“I felt so happy, and I am hopeful that I will accomplish my career goals,” said Tabitha Nasambu, who scored 73 points (B+).  She attributed her performance to “determination, discipline and encouragement from the teachers,” and looks forward to studying nursing at university. Following graduation from Naivasha Girls’ School, Tabitha has been giving back to her community by volunteering at Ortum Girls’ School, her former primary school, where she teaches mathematics and Kiswahili to seventh and eighth grade students.

Dominic Munyao, who completed secondary school at Rongai Boys’, scored 70 points (B+) on the KCSE.  He hopes to study computer science at university, and attributed his strong performance to “being focused, hard work and cooperating with teachers.” He also is volunteering at Ikanga primary school during break, teaching science and social studies to grades seven and eight.

EFAC’s most improved scholar is Sheila Woki, who scored 61 points (B) on the KCSE, up considerably from the D she earned on the mock test.  Sheila shares, “I used to feel that I have disappointed my sponsors, but I consistently worked extra hard.”  Passionate about farming, Sheila plans to study Agri-economics at university.  She is currently teaching mathematics at Naivasha DEB primary school for her community service placement.

Thomas Mosioma emerged as the top EFAC scholar, scoring 75 points (A-) on the KCSE. In a phone interview conducted by the EFAC team at Africa Nazarene University, Thomas said, “I felt happy,  even though I had hoped to perform better than this.  I want to be an inspiration to others.” He attributes his sterling performance to being disciplined and hard-working, and is grateful for the mentorship and help he received from teachers at St. Mary’s Boys School. Thomas plans to study corporate communications, and currently is volunteering at Nandi Referral Hospital as an assistant in the medical store.

On behalf of the EFAC community, sponsors and staff, we congratulate the Class of 2016 on their amazing accomplishments.  They have made all of us very proud, and we look forward to the next four years with hope and optimism for their futures.
