2018 KCPE candidates from Gatumaini Primary School set to benefit from mentorship project.

2018 KCPE Candidates from Gatumaini Primary School-Thika comparing notes during the launch of the Alumni Mentorship project at their school.
Close to 180 Grade 8 pupils from Gatumaini Primary School -Thika are set to benefit from a Mentorship Initiative organised by former pupils. 

The eight sessions mentorship programme are aimed at imparting soft skills such as personal branding among the candidates under the theme: nurturing holistic citizens who can give back to society

Speaking to Thika Town Today project Public Relations and Liaison Officer Mr Paul Dalizu said “We have realized that these pupils have great potential as they prepare for their national examinations, there is a lot that we have in store for them to make sure that we encourage these young minds, and what better way for us former pupils of this great school to come back and help out,”.

 Lauding the initiative Gatumaini Primary School Deputy Head teacher Mrs Margaret Maruri said, "We have seen significant improvement with the 2017 KCPE candidates for the first time in many years we had the leading candidate who was a boy. Parents are beginning to appreciate the efforts of these mentorship sessions and they have assured us of their support even in 2018."

The alumni have committed their time at least once a month during the weekends. Each mentor has been assigned a group of pupils who they mentor all the way to the exam day. 

There are ground rules however: the pupils must keep time and maintain discipline during the sessions between mentors and them.

The next Mentorship Project will take place on Saturday 24th March 2018 at the school's main hall.
