Each year, students finishing 8th grade in Kenya take the Kenya Comprehensive Primary Exam (KCPE), a nationwide exam graded on a 500-point scale.
Largest class ever
In 2014, our program had 51 students finish 8th grade and complete the KCPE. This is our largest class ever.
The average score is 295
The average score earned by Ngong Road Children’s Foundation students was 295 out of 500 compared to the average score earned nationwide of 251.
Seven kids may attend national high school from this class
In 2014, six of our students were admitted to the most selective high schools in Kenya – national high schools. We believe we will have at least seven students admitted to national high schools in 2015.
Brothers in Top Five 2014 KCPE Exam Takers
Brothers Gavin and Kenjan have been competing with one another in primary school for six years since they joined Ngong Road Children’s Foundation (NRCF). As they concluded 8th grade, Gavin earned the highest score. Kenjan earned the fifth spot . We believe these scores are high enough for both of them to be invited to a national high school.
NRCF changed their lives
Gavin and Kenjan live with their parents and siblings. Before joining NRCF Kenjan was forced to drop out of school for a year due to a lack of school fees. In all there are seven children in the family. Their brother, Bertolly , is also in the program and does well in school.
Besides being good in school both boys are leaders in their school and in the program. In school, Gavin was an environmental perfect and Kenjan was the school Head Boy. In co-curricular activities, Kenjan plays rugby and Gavin is interested in public speaking.
These two boys have consistently held top positions in school and have competed to be number one. Congratulations to Gavin, Kenjan, and their parents!
