According to the principal, Mr Daniel Amunga, this year’s examination results were the best in the school’s history.
He attributed the good performance to discipline and hard work by the students.
“At Kisima, discipline is our first chore. That is why we have been managing to post good results every year” he said.
Mr Amunga said that they assist students from the marginalised communities in three counties whose parents cannot afford to pay school fees yet they are bright.
“We are here to assist them and brighten their lives. These are all students from poor families and we are proud that they now have achieved their goals,” said Mr Amunga.
