Mulwa Muendo of Inyokoni Primary School, Mugambi Josleen Karimi of PCEA Kathingiri School, Sawe Kipkosgei Sammy of Bishop Muge Memorial Primary School, and Emily Tanui of St Luke Prep Bibiriet school received awards for leading top schools in the KCPE exams last year.

The prizes recognize schools that performed exceptionally well on national exams last year.

Kenyans have not been given a list of the top 2021 KCPE and KCSE schools because the Kenya National Examination Council did not conduct the ranking.

Overall, a big proportion of teachers from well-known institutions including Kenya High School, Kapsabet School, Mang’u high, Friends School Kamusinga, Machakos School, and Mama Ngina Girls in Mombasa were honored.

Awards were also given to teachers from Masimbani Primary, Inyokoni Primary, and Githunguri Primary, Mudasa Academy, Vihiga, Kitengela International, and Acacia Academy.

The chief executive officer of the TSC, Nancy Macharia, also acknowledged teachers from special schools, including Thika School for the Blind, Joyland School, Wajir Special School, and St. Kizito.

During a global celebrations day with the subject “The change of Education Begins with Teachers,” the teacher’s employer acknowledged the dedication of its staff.

Dr. Macharia praised educators for overcoming obstacles brought on by the twin disruptions of Covid-19 and the General Election.

Kahi Indimuli, the national chairman of the Kenya Secondary School Heads Association, has urged President William Ruto to uphold the commitment he made in the Kenya Kwanza Education Charter.

There is a shortfall of 116,000 school teachers. In the first year, he vowed to employ half of the deficit. We look forward to witnessing this,” he said.

Teachers from Kenya who received multiple medals and certificates in 2021 were also recognized.

Sammy Kipchumba is from Kapsabet Boys’ High School in Nandi County; Jane Wacheke is from Othaya Girls’ High School in Nyeri County; Kuria Mwangi is from Murang’a High School in Murang’a County; Alio Ibrahim Bashir is from Gode Primary School in Mandera County; and Catherine Karanga is from Thika High School for the Visually Impaired in Kiambu County.
