Trizah’s Education Post

I have been in Sweetwater’s secondary school for my high school system. I am proud of completing my high school coarse.
My understanding about education is that I learnt that it is the main thing that encourages us to distinguish between the right and the wrong because in absence of education we can’t do what we need. Education also brings a natural lasting change in an individual’s reasoning and ability to achieve the targeted goals.

While in school I really enjoyed my English lessons because I found literature the most exciting and fun lesson one could explore and was given a chance to think beyond the limits.
In the Kenyan education system all the grade 12 students have to seat for a national exam like I did. That will enable me to determine my next level of education system. In school we had to memorize a novel which would be examinable in the national test. Am proud I managed it though it was a bit tough.

I really loved writing while in school especially the essay writing and I managed to win that really made me feel proud and gave me the passion to continue with the writing and also find ways in which I can improve the writing skills.
The education system in Kenya has now changed and the 8-4-4 system has now been replaced with 2-6-3-3 curriculum.
School has taught me that education is reflective in individuals benefits such as: professional success, personal gain and in the community.

    Hi Trizah,
    Wow, congratulations! The national exam you take in grade 12 in Kenya sounds rather difficult, especially if you have to commit an entire novel to memory! In Canada, the grade 12’s would take exams called provincials at the end of the school year, but while they were important, they did not necessarily determine the student’s future in education. In fact, they plan to eliminate the provincials now. Therefore, the education systems in Canada compared to Kenya are quite different in that sense.
    However, there are definitely parallels between all schools around the world, and I agree that there are many benefits to education.
