The 2019 form four class at St. Brigid’s Girls school Kiminini was treated to a thanksgiving ceremony at the institution after registering remarkable performance in the KCSE examination to emerge tops in Trans Nzoia.

The 268 students scored a mean score of 9.436 of in the 2019 KCSE exam to become the best school in Trans Nzoia with its top candidate Laura Chelangat being the tenth best student countrywide.

259 students attained the minimum entry requirement of C+.

The thanksgiving mass was presided over by the head of the Kitale Catholic Diocese Bishop Maurice Crowley who also doubles as the chairman of the school’s board of management.

The university bound victors were awarded by the school majorly suitcases while the school principal Mrs. Inviolata Lukorito rewarded those who scored plain As in her Kiswahili subject.

“Last year’s class was exemplary since the students were disciplined and dedicated. We wish them well as they fly our flag high as they pursue higher education,” said Mrs. Lukorito.

Bishop Crowley challenged this year’s class which has set sights on attaining a minimum grade of 10 in this year’s KCSE examination with the main goal being entry in to university.

Kwanza MP Ferdinand Wanyonyi heaped praise on the Catholic Church for its exemplary support for education by setting high standards in schools under its sponsorship programme.

“We call on other institutions to emulate the Catholic Church by playing a role in boosting education standards within our region. The effort is remarkable,” said Mr. Wanyonyi.
