Precious Talent School pupils among top performers in KCPE

Three pupils from Precious Talent Top School are among candidates who scored more than 400 marks in the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations, whose results were announced on Monday.

Grace Achieng Lwoka, Nicole Sangwera Sianyo and Martin Mwangi Yiminyi scored 408, 405 and 402 marks respectively.

The three pupils were among candidates who were transferred to Ngong Forest Primary School, Riruta Satellite Primary School and Jamhuri Primary School after their school was shut down.

Eight pupils lost their lives at Precious Talent Top School on September 23, 2019 while 64 others sustained serious injuries after two classrooms at the school collapsed during morning preps.

The school was subsequently closed after initial investigations and recommendation from a task force that was set up to look into the pupils’ safety of the pupils. Eight pupils died in the incident while 64 others sustained serious injuries.

Andy Michael Munyiri of Damacrest School, Thogoto was the top candidate in this year’s KCPE examinations with a score of 440 marks out of a possible 500.
