Buckner Kenya celebrates Reynolds Community School’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) class of 2021 for their excellent performance and emerging top school in Cherang’any Sub-County, for the fourth time in a row.
The class of 51 learners had a mean score of 313 marks, with the top students joining St Joseph's National School Kitale, Friends School Kamusinga, St Monicah’s Kitale, St Joseph’s Girls Kitale, St. Marks Cherang’any, and St. Anthony’s Kitale among others. They were awarded one term of fully paid school fees from Buckner Kenya’s Executive Country Director, Dickson Masindano.
“Congratulations to the class of 2021 and thank you for making Buckner proud. Our dream is to see our children excel in their education and that is why our teachers lay a strong foundation for them. A foundation that is not just based on education but also on spiritual values. We are excited that we have a 100 percent form one transition since our learners performed well. I, therefore, wish to congratulate them by paying for their school fees for the first term, so that they report to their respective secondary schools,” Says Masindano
According to Victor Wasilwa, a former student at the school, consistent success comes from putting God first in everything, passion to learn new things, support from the teachers and non-teaching staff as well as discipline.
“I have had the best experience in this school and I must admit that I was lucky to secure a place at Reynolds as a learner. We received support from our teachers and other members of staff here, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. These people made education fun and we would all look forward to reporting to school. Our teachers trained us to work smart and always aim high, this is one great lesson that I will take with me to high school and other levels of education,” says Victor
“I am proud to be an alumnus of Reynolds community school and will forever be great full to my teachers and the entire Buckner fraternity for being a pillar that we would lean on every day. The school had the best facilities and a conducive environment that every learner would want to study in. God bless Buckner Kenya,” says Sharon
The ECD also stated that the school is preparing for Junior high, according to the new Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC). A move that will see the construction of new classes to accommodate learners.
“We are preparing ourselves for junior high and the first step to that is constructing new classrooms that will accommodate current learners who are transitioning to junior high. Charity begins at home, and that is why we contracted someone from this community to help oversee and spearhead the project. This will be easy for us because the contractor understands clearly the challenges that people from Hututu and its environs encounter. The only legacy that we can leave behind is educating our children. They will build this nation and appreciate where they come from,” says Masindano
Reynolds Community school has a fully equipped library, computer lab, adequate classrooms, comfortable desks, and playground and offers transportation services to learners.
