The school embarked in rewarding with cash, teachers who performed well in their subjects.
The teachers were awarded based on the number of quality grades attained in their subjects. The grades the school used to award its teachers are A (plain), A- (minus), B+ (plus) and B (plain).
Each grade attracted a specific amount. Each A (plain) was equivalent to sh 1,200, A- (minus) sh 1,000, B+ (plus) sh 800 and B (plain) sh 600.
Mr Samuel Mose, a CRE teacher, topped in the awards after scoring many A’s in his subjects. Mr Mose scooped sh 80,400 for the good performance.
He was followed closely with Mr Onyari Samuel who received sh 71,600 for the exemplary performance in his History subject.
However English, Computer studies and Science teachers received very little amount because their subjects did not record very good performance also because some have low number of students interested in them.
Mr Charles Ndemo who is in charge of Computer studies received sh 2,000 only for his subject.
English department received only sh 600 while Physics teacher, Mr Erick Onduko, got sh 2,600 as reward.
We are happy for this school and the Principal Mr Tom Surumo, indeed this is encouraging and we know the teachers will be motivated to work even harder.
