Parents and teachers of Bridge School, Kibwezi were in a joyous mood following a positive result in the 2018 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).
The school joined its sister institutions countrywide in celebrating ten years of providing quality education to Kenyan pupils as former students join secondary schools.
An elated Khadhija Nthenya, a former Bridge School, Kibwezi student, who sat her KCPE exam in 2018, said she was looking forward to joining Machakos Girls’ High School after excelling in the national tests.
She noted in excitement of her dreams of becoming a neurosurgeon: “I am happy about my performance and admission to my dream school. I thank my teachers and parents for all they have done for me. I want to be a neurosurgeon and help my community.”
Mrs. Mutua, one of the Bridge parents at the academy, noted: “Over the years, I have seen children perform very well in this academy. Bridge has created an opportunity for our pupils to excel, Bridge teachers are exceptional in the way they teach and as a parent I couldn’t be happier having my child learn here in 2019.”
The community elders, who joined the celebrations, emphasised the importance of education in the community and noted the impact that Bridge has had in the community and challenged the 2019 candidates to surpass those who came before them.
Pastor Joseph Muendo, who chairs the academy’s board of management, noted: “Bridge has been operating in Kibwezi since 2014 and each year I have seen pupils go to national and extra-county and county schools. These are our future who will come and change our community. I challenge you pupils to do even better in 2019 with the support of your Bridge teachers.”
This is the same feeling of jubilation and hope being experienced in over 300 communities and 44 of the 47 counties in which Bridge International Academies operate in.
Over 100 pupils at Bridge who sat for KCPE in 2018 have been admitted to national schools, considered the most prestigious high schools in the country.
Multiple pupils have received high school scholarships from individuals, organisations such as ‘Wings To Fly’, Kenya Education Fund and KCB; and directly from the schools such as Starehe Boys, Starehe Girls and M-Pesa Foundation.
Over 3,500 pupils sat for KCPE at Bridge in 2018 and with an even bigger number expected this year.
Bridge has operated in Kenya for 10 years, and continues to serve communities, including Kibwezi community.
Through this period, hundreds of thousands of pupils have learned at Bridge with over 12,000 pupils sitting for KCPE and transitioning to high schools.
