Village school on track for national exams

Grade eight students of Boera Primary School in Central Province are preparing well for their national exams which are to be held from 2-5 November.

The village is facing a shortage of water supply following the dry weather which has emptied water tanks and wells are drying up.

Despite that, the students are working hard to pass their exams.

School head master John Wasigui said teachers were working with the 29 grade eight students doing   remedial exercises for an one hour after school.

“After three mock exams, we have highlighted some weakness areas in various topics which the teachers are emphasising during remedial classes. 

“We have had students missing out on classes due to the water shortage but the situation is under control and we make sure they make up from the missed classes,” he said.

The cut off mark for grade eight students in the province to continue to high school is 75%.

Wasigui said they aim to achieve that mark or even better so they’re working hard to reach that goal.
