Nakuru-based Melvin Jones Lions Academy has recorded the best ever results at the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) recently released results.

Established in 1991 by the Lions Club of Nakuru, part of the Lions International, a global charity organization, it is part of the complex of the three sister-schools sponsored by the Lions Club of Nakuru-Lions Nursery and Lions primary School, the other two.

Initially hosted in the premises of Lions primary, it moved into the present stable in 1993.

The objective of the school was to give back to the community, as a form of extending the charity work. From the inception, with handful students to its current population of about 500 students, the school has grown in lips and bounds.

While academics remain the school’s forte, it has produced top performers in the Cambridge Assessment International Examinations. In 2016, the school produced the best student in the world in the IGCSE (O’ Level) examinations, Manraj Singh.

This was a culmination of the excellent performances the school had set before. And, in the just released May/June 2021 results, amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the school continued its stellar performance, producing scintillating results.

Below is how the school performed in the recently released results under the International General Certificate of Secondary Education(IGCSE).

IGCSE

Arpit Srivastav 10 A*

Prem Patel  9 A*

Stephanie Muthoni  7A*  2A

AS/A LEVEL

Ambar Chakaraborty  3A*

Dharit Patel   2A* 1A

Njuguna Njonjo 3A

 

The performance from these candidates, according to the Principal, Mr. Robinson Alianda, is “the best ever at IGCSE”.

Alianda, who spoke to Nakurunews.co.ke, attributed the excellent performance to the synergy of purpose among all the stakeholders.

“We have recorded the best ever results at the IGCSE. This can only be attributed to the teamwork of staff, candidate’s resolve, hard work and sheer determination to push beyond the limits, notwithstanding the robust School Board of Management support” stated Alianda.

The school has emerged as the prime destination for parents looking for quality, reliable and yet; affordable international education.

According to the Principal, The National Curriculum of England and Wales is taught in the school with competent and well qualified teachers, with experience spanning many years. Children join the school in year 1 at about seven years of age and complete the full course in year 13 (A ‘Levels) at about age 18.

Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) is the examinations body.  At the end of the course, the children Join local or International universities.

Alianda added that the school will continue punching above its weight.

“We will continue to unapologetically set high and attainable standards to our students, because we know, with proper scaffolding they are achievable” he affirmed.

There has been a strong and ever-increasing demand for the British National Curriculum education in Nakuru town and the country at large.

This is the gap in the market that Melvin Jones Lions Academy has been able to fill and with an expanding middle class within Nakuru town-to be elevated to city status soon—the insatiable appetite for this curriculum is bound to continue.

Within the town and its environs, and apart from Melvin Jones Lions Academy, the other schools offering the international curriculum are; Mustard Seeds International School, Shah Lalji Nangpar Academy and Greensteds International school.

While lauding the British National Curriculum for laying emphasis on the development of key competencies right at early years,Mr Alianda revealed that it is on this platform that the school has been able to nurture critical thinkers, excellent communicators and problem solvers.

“Children of the Academy stand out from the crowd when articulating issues. Holistic education is fully buttressed in the system and as well as the academics, extra and co-curricular activities are given prominence” he said.

It should be noted that from 2018 to 2019, the school produced Little Mr. and Miss Kenya, Prince Fortune and Regyn Hope respectively. They went ahead to win major international beauty contests held in Greece and Thailand.

The Ministry of Education  has assured school heads and parents that the new 2021-2022 revised fee structure for secondary schools will not in any way affect the smooth run of schools.

Basic Education Principal Secretary Julius Jwan said the move was based on the reduced term dates.

The PS who spoke in Nakuru on Monday after assessing post-covid 19 preparedness in schools, urged secondary schools heads to adhere to the revised fee structure and avoid charging any extra cost.

He was quick to note that the reduction was not made on the tuition money that is always disbursed to the national, county and extra county schools hence normal operations in schools.Basic Education

“Because the term dates were reduced, we decided also to extend the same to parents through reduction of fees. We did not reduce the tuition fee that we always disburse to schools and therefore normal operations in schools will go on” said Jwan.

This, even as the government also reiterated commitment towards 100 percent transition rate from primary to secondary schools.

PS Jwan revealed that the Ministry has continued to engage Equity Group Foundation towards realization of the same.

In Nakuru County’s informal settlements over 700 applications were received for the Equity’s Elimu Scholarship of whom 210 were shortlisted for interviews and 126 were successful.

The PS also assured that efforts are in place to ensure the selected 126 join boarding schools as per the Ministry’s policy with all needs catered for.

“The government is committed to 100 percent transition. We have had good engagement with equity and already 126 from Nakuru County under the Elimu Scholarship will be proceeding to secondary” he said.
