Fifty-one CCP girls from fifth to sixth grade visited Statehouse Girls High School, Nairobi, one of the highest performing extra-county high schools in Kenya, on March 29th, 2017. The educational visit aimed at mentoring the girls in academic excellence. Mrs. Luusa, a teacher who heads Science, Guidance and Counselling department advised the girls to have a positive attitude towards education, high self-esteem and character formation. The girls interacted with three form four students at the school hall who encouraged them how to improve in academics. Mercy Mutana Nyaga, best outstanding student in academics and the Deputy Student President gave the regimen of academic improvement as: hard work, consultation, discipline, confidence and God’s help. She advised the girls to cover their course work and be attentive in class, do homework to test their understanding and extra work for revision for better results. ‘Ask questions, don’t keep quite if you don’t understand’, Mercy directed. Siayo Tobiko, the School President informed the students that ‘opportunities are waiting for you, and are not for everyone but those that stand out, persevere, teachable and ready to learn’. Siayo advised the girls to have a plan and set goals for performance and also watch their friends. Faith Vugutsa, CCP’s ROPEs 2015 alumnus and a student at the school inspired the girls to have a positive attitude and mentality towards Mathematics as a subject. Faith made them understand that practice makes perfect and they should grab every opportunity that comes their way.
