School under KWS pilot project excels in KCPE exams

One of the 32 schools supported under a Kenya Wildlife Service Partnership for Accountability in Schools Management Around Parks (PASMAP) project has registered remarkable improvement in the just released Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) results. 

Wiyeta Primary School in Trans Nzoia with 60 pupils, who sat for KCPE, achieved a mean score of 284 marks up from 234 last year. The breakdown of the rest of the performance is as follows:

300 marks and above       23 pupils

250 to 299 marks             20 pupils

200 to 249 marks             15 pupils

Below 200 marks              2 pupils                   

The overall goal of the PASMAP pilot project is to enhance transparency and accountability in the management of schools around wildlife areas. It fosters more effective participation of local communities and other key stakeholders in school management. This involves strengthening of school-based management committees and Board of Governors, establishment of a strong monitoring and evaluation systems, enhancing the participation of local communities and the civil society in the management of education and wildlife conservation management efforts. However, the project doesn’t have support for infrastructure projects like classrooms, boreholes, laboratories and libraries.
