Senior Secondary Class Re-established

Starting in 1940, Cambridge School Certificate Examination was to replace the Kenya Senior Secondary Examination. This development encouraged the Catholic Authorities to re-establish the Senior Secondary section at Kabaa in 1939. The best three pupils from the 1938 Junior Secondary class were enrolled in Form 3. These were: Stephen Kioni, Philip Getao and Hilary Oduol. Hilary dropped out of the course during the course of the year. The other two were later to be transferred to Mangu along with the whole school at the end of that year and became the first Cambridge School Certificate candidates of Kabaa-Mangu High School. They sat the examination at Mangu at the end of 1940 and both of them passed. Kioni was admitted to Makerere College.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Readers are less and less seen as mere non-writers, the subhuman “other” or flawed derivative of the author; the lack of a pen is no longer a shameful mark of secondary status but a positively enabling space, just as within every writer can be seen to lurk, as a repressed but contaminating antithesis, a reader.
    Terry Eagleton (b. 1943)
