Kenya: Pleasant View Tops Kiambu

Pleasant View School in Githunguri took position one in Kiambu county and seven nationally in last year's KCPE results. The school had a mean score of 393.

This is however a decline from 2011 when the school had a mean score of 403. The headteacher Gerald Mungai said the school has been doing well because pupils are disciplined.

The school's mean score has been going up for the last three years. Mungai said , teach- ers, parents, the board of governors and the district education office have been working as a team.

"Team work, discipline, fear of God and involving others in decision-making on the progress of the school has led to the good performance," Mungai said.

"The pupils of this school are self-driven. We encourage the parents to help them to remain focused at home," Mungai said. He said the school has been setting targets and striving to achieve them.

Mungai said teachers cover the syllabus by July and start revision for the exams. The school's top student was Esther Ng'endo Muiruri who scored 412 marks. She wants to be a surgeon and her school of choice is Alliance Girls High.
