Alara Mixed Secondary School (AMSS) prepares for end of year exams

Form 4 is the final year of secondary school in Kenya and the academic year ends in December. Most rural secondary schools have few text books for exam preparation so few students can produce good revision notes and don’t do as well as they could have done.
With your support, we have just provided textbook for form 4 students at AMSS. They will share one between two for all eight academic subjects they study. During previous visits to Alara we have become aware of how academically driven many of the students are. Questions we have been asked include:

  • What is the evidence that Pluto is not a planet?
  • How does your legal system differ from the French legal system?
  • What is the best global map projection for circumnavigation?

These are not questions from students of low ability. They just need support to achieve their potential.
Thank you for your help in making this possible.
We look forward to seeing their exam results in January.
