Girls High School
WANKAN EDUCATIONAL CENTRE
This is a Girls' only Boarding High School. We have excellent facilities in boarding, library, labs, transport buses and our own swimming pool. All these ultra modern facilities are situated in the school compound.
Our girls' high school was started due to pressure from parents and well-wishers who saw a great need for such an institution.
To realise our dream, we have invested in well-equipped Science Labs, Library, Computer Lab and spacious classrooms each having a manageable number of learners.
The school is also proud of well trained and qualified university graduates teachers. These make a team of motivated staff who are able and willing to give individual attention to learners.
Both curricular and co-curricular activities are offerd for the girls. These activities involve class work and learning, indoor and outdoor games and sports, clubs and societies debates, study tours, symposiums and weekend challenges. For example our girls participated in a swimming gala held recently at Peponi International School and emerged the overall winners.
In a bid to mould girls moral standing, we have AIDS Awareness Society and Christian Union, Guidance and Counselling group led by knowlegeable staff members.
The girls have registerd excellent examination results since year 2006 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE). In 2009 KCSE, we got a Mean Grade of C registering a marked improvemnt of 29%. 65% of the girls scored over the minimum university entry grade.
