Our entry point is the three-year old nursery class. Since there are three streams, 75 new children are accepted each year. From that class children proceed until they reach Standard 8.
No, admission fee is paid when a child is admitted.
In case of a vacancy, most classes have brothers or sisters waiting to join their siblings who are already enrolled in this school. Interviews for upper primary classes are held in November to replace students that may transfer to boarding schools.
Although admissions are normally done in January, a few may begin in May or September under special circumstances. For example, children turning three years of age during first term may be admitted in May if there is a vacancy. Primary students who have passed the interview in November but are placed on the waiting list may join if a vacancy occurs due to a transfer.
Applications are available to new parents during the last two weeks of June. Each one is numbered. On 1st July, numbers are selected randomly to determine which children are admitted. The number of places depends on how many current or former parents have returned applications. Those who do not get places are placed on the waiting list.
No, for transparency anyone may attend the balloting. If you are not present, however, your child can still gain admission.
On the day after the balloting, a list of the results is posted on the school bulletin board or parents may call the office to find out the results. The sh. 500 admission fee is due within one week. Anyone who has not paid is contacted
If the office is notified of a vacancy, the first parent on the waiting list will be called. Usually there are no changes until after 1st December, the deadline for new families to pay the Ksh. 10,000 Development Fund.
Primary applications must include a photocopy of the most recent report form and the child’s birth certificate. After passing the interview, a school leaving certificate must accompany the Ksh. 500 admission fee.
In 2008, a third nursery stream for three-year olds was added. The school board has committed to building the extra classrooms needed to grow with the extra children until the third stream of Standard 8 is completed in 2015.
No. In fact, there are very few schools that have Christian teachers, Christian books and a Christian view of education.
