Date Published: 06 Feb, 2013
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.
