Mathematics is a compulsory subject as per KNEC requirements. However, most students have a negative attitude towards the subject and lack pre-requisite skills in the subject. As a department, we have put in place programmes and approaches to enable learners to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills.
Our major aim is to demystify mathematics, motivate students to like it and aim very high in the subject. The commitment and dedication of the teachers who are putting a lot of effort into the supervision of students and increasing contact hours are great. This has resulted in a marked improvement in the subject's performance. The learners have also acquired a positive attitude towards the subject.
Sciences – The subjects covered under the science department are Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. They form the foundation for most of the science-oriented courses at the tertiary and university level.Members of the science department
Chemistry and Biology are compulsory while Physics is optional in forms, 2,3, and 4.
To enable students to enjoy the subjects and perform well, lessons are designed to be learner-centred. This is possible because all teachers in the department have undergone INSERVICE Training by CEMESTEA (SMASE Programme). In every subject, we have subject champions who are teachers working closely with KNEC.
The department has a membership of 16 teachers serving the 1085 Boys. They are:-
