This includes basic education in Kenyan nursery schools, gender sensitivity in Kenyan schools, accessibility to school by children, co curricular activities in schools, the grading systems in different schools, significance of national examinations, the fate of those who fail to continue with high school education, availability and provision of higher education in Kenya,...Read More...

Hello everyone I decided to begin by looking at the advantages of going to a day school here in Kenya. A day school has both both boys and girls, unlike most boarding which has boys or girls only. After looking at this advantages of being in a day school, I would like the members of butterfly in Canadian community to compare and tell me which they would prefer. 1. Co education- Both boys and girls have their studies in the same class. Day school give students a chance of interacting with the...Read More...

Hey guys It has been fine finding about the comparison between a boarding school and a day school in Kenya. By the end of this post, I would like you to imagine that you are a Kenyan student, and you have just completed your grade 8 examination, would you love to attend a boarding school or a day school? For anyone who might not be aware, a day school kind of attendance means being in school from 7 A.M in the morning and leaving for home in the evening, most probably 5 P.M. In a boarding...Read More...

Secondary schools in Kenya are divided into some categories.Government funded schools are divided into national, provincial and district levels. The mean...Read More...

Hey guys! Today I'm going to be posting my second round of research on my project on Education in Canada. In this post, I'm going to be looking into the assessment of students (grades). People living in Canada will most likely know the majority information. In Canada, we receive letter grades based on what percentage we receive in the class. In the school district SD43, the letter grades are: (1.) A: 86-100% (excellent) B: 73-85% (very good) C+: 67-72% (above average) C: 60-66%...Read More...

Hi everyone I appreciate all those who asked me questions in my previous post. I welcome any other question.

EDUCATION IN KENYA.

Allan Waithira (Thome)
Hi everyone! Did anyone wonder what 7-4-2-3 system is? The system was established in Kenya in 1963 after gaining independence. The education structure was introduced after the British education system. This was designed to provide seven years of primary education, four years of lower secondary education, two years of upper secondary education and three years of University. The country was in immediate need for skilled workers to hold positions previously held by the British. 7-4-2-3 system...Read More...

Hey guys! Today I'm going to be posting my first round of research about Education in Canada. I've decided to focus mainly on education in BC (British Columbia) because the education systems are different in every province. Todays post is going to be about education in Canada, what its like, and some stats. Some of the Canadian students on this site will most likely know some of this information, but I think it will be interesting for the Kenyan students to read to see the differences...Read More...

EDUCATION IN KENYA.

Allan Waithira (Thome)
EDUCATION IN KENYA BEFORE INDEPENDENCE. Hi everyone, Kenyans have a long and rich history of education and training. Traditional education was integrated with the social, cultural, artistic, religious and recreational life. This type of education provided skills and knowledge, and was a socializing agent that transmitted cultural values from one generation to another. However, Christian missionaries introduced Western education in Kenya, as we know it today, by the 19th century when the...Read More...

EDUCATION IN KENYA.

Allan Waithira (Thome)
Hi guys As I had said earlier, the origin of education in Kenya is traced back in the early 50s. With the expansion of the railway from Mombasa to Uganda, the missionaries expanded their work into Kenya's interior. An attempt to set up a school and mission at Yatta in 1894 was resisted by the Kamba tribe. The missionaries then penetrated into western Kenya and set up schools and missions. The first school in western Kenya was established at Kaimosi in 1902. During the colonial era, the...Read More...

EDUCATION IN KENYA.

Allan Waithira (Thome)
Hi everyone. Have you ever wondered what you would be doing at 16 years if you were not in school? How many students in schools really understand why they are in school? Or do some of us go to school because we have no choice but to follow the culture of attending school that we met when we were born? Has anyone ever wondered what is the importance of education in the life of any human being? Look at the start of life, birth, for a new being bone to successfully start breathing, education is...Read More...
