Kajiado County Governor Joseph ole Lenku has pledged to build a new multipurpose hall at Oloolaiser Boys National School as a token of appreciation for their good performance in the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations.
He spoke during an event held to celebrate the performance at the school led by Chief Principal James Mungai.
Last year, more than 92 per cent of the candidates (142 out of 154) attained direct university entry and the school’s mean score has been on an upward trajectory for the past four years. It scored 5.7 in 2018, 7.08 in 2019, 8.01 in 2020, 7.87 in 2021 and 8.75 last year.
The school managed to post 3 As, 9 Cs and 3 C minus.
Principal Mungai noted that the good performance is due to students’ discipline and determination, supportive school staff and teamwork from parents.
The school also celebrated emerging the best in recent regional and national science and mathematics competitions.
Lenku said that investment in education creates a self-reliant generation that is more enlightened, cautious, progressive and with a higher life expectancy.
“Guided by our County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP), we are building our county’s future block by block, by investing heavily in education infrastructure,” he said.
The County boss noted that the county has established new schools and also ensured that every existing school has new infrastructure.
“This is why equitable access to quality education is one of the four prongs that guide my vision of transforming Kajiado in a sustainable way. My commitment to education transformation in Kajiado is not only to ensure 100% transition across education levels, but to also ensure that there is quality education,” he added.
Lenku said that his administration will continue working closely with Members of Parliament across the five sub-counties; and MCAs to continue improving infrastructure in schools.
The Governor was accompanied by a number of MCAs and Kajiado North MP Onesmus Ngogoyo who commended the school for the good performance.
He issued a cheque worth Ksh3 million from the National Government Constituencies Development Fund (NG-CDF) for infrastructural development.
