Despite having only 40 students, St Peters Manzi Itumo learners are determined to excel. Katui Mwendwa* who is the only student in form three class told MWINGI TIMES that she was motivated to work hard and score well to achieve her dream of becoming a nurse or a doctor.

“I am in form three and I study alone. When I am alone in the class, I put a lot of efforts in my studies. I promise I will not leave this school because we are determined to realize our dreams” she said.

The hardworking student said she was optimistic that more students will be admitted to the school as time goes by.

Mrs Mercy Kyalo, a teacher at the institution who spoke on behalf of the Principal attributed the low student population to the fact that the school was still young and has a long way to go.

In an apparent allusion of challenges facing St Peters Manzi Itumo mixed secondary school, the teacher said they were only using Kenya Literature Bureau (KLB) books for learning and revision.  She thanked the area MP for donating revision books for which she expressed hope that they will boost the performance of the school.

“We have been without revision books but we thank the MP Ben Mbai for the donation”, said the teacher.

Form Four is the class with the highest student population. It has 16 students.
