HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION IN KENYA

Secondary Schools are categorized in Kenya as either Public or Private. The Kenya Government sponsors public schools by providing teaching staff through the Teachers Service Commission. The fees paid by students in public schools is regulated by the Government and is used to buy teaching and learning resources. It is also used to buy boarding facilities and pay workers who assist in the provision of services to the students. Public schools are further categorized into:

  • National Schools which admit their students from all Counties in the Republic of Kenya.
  • County Schools which admit students from the County in which the school is situated.
  • Day Schools which admit students from within the immediate vicinity of the respective schools.
  • Private Schools are owned and managed by individuals or organizations that determine their own admission criteria. Private schools help to increase admission space in secondary schools as Public Schools cannot admit all that are due for Form One.

Public and Private schools can be boarding or day schools. Secondary schools can also be boys only or girls only, or mixed schools. Moi Girls’ High School - Eldoret is a boarding Girls’ National School which admits girls from all the counties in Kenya.

All public schools in Kenya are managed by a Boards of Management (BOMs) appointed by the Minister for Education Science and Technology. The board members that are considered for this role must have shown leadership ability and their potential to contribute toward rendering voluntary service for the promotion and management of education. The purpose is to mould the youth to be patriotic and useful to self and the society at large, in accordance with the national educational goals. This in effect means that the school should be an institution that produces physically fit persons of sound mind, moral integrity and refined character.

The BOM consists of a Chairman, Secretary and other Members. The BOM elects from itself an executive committee that has delegated powers to manage the school on behalf of the BOM. The Principal of the school is posted by the ministry of education to administer the school on daily basis as the Secretary of the Board.

All the transactions by either the BOM's executive committee or the secretary are endorsed by the Board of management. Moi Girls’ has had a committed Board that has excellently played its role over the years. Its core functions include:

  • Planning and development of physical facilities for the purpose of learning, teaching in the school.
  • Sourcing and management of school finances which includes receiving all fees, grants from public funds, donations and any other income to the school. The Board is required to prepare approve and implement both the recurrent and development budgets of the school.
  • Organize, direct, supervise and monitor approved projects and programmes in the school.
  • Recruit, appoint and discipline the non-teaching staff in the school. The Teachers Service Commission seconds the teaching staff to the Board for service in the school.
  • Discipline of teachers and students under the general guidance of the TSC and the Director of Education respectively.
  • Regulate the admission of students subject to the general direction of the Director of Education.

The Board of Management is also guided by;

  • The education Act chapter 211 of the Laws of Kenya (Revised 1980).
  • The Teachers Service Commission Act Chapter 212 (1967) of the laws of Kenya.
  • The Teachers Service Commission code of regulations for Teachers (Revised 1986)
  • The Code of Management for Secondary Schools and Teachers Training Colleges approved by the Minister for Education, (Order of 1969).
  • The Kenya National Examination Council Act Chapter 225A (Revised).
  • The School’s current Strategic Plan.
  • Any agreement entered between the previous boards and a recognised trade union that represents the interests of the non-teaching staff in the school.
Another body that also manages the affairs of the school is the Parents Association (PA). This is a welfare body that brings together the teaching staff and the parents of the school. This body has office bearers that include the Chairman, Secretary (who is the Principal of the school) and the Treasurer. This body generally provides the funds approved by the BOM for the development of the school. It has 17 members drawn from Parents from each of the four classes. The PA at Moi Girls has done tremendous work in the following areas.
  • Bringing closer the staff and the parents of the school.
  • Providing a forum for discussion on all aspects concerning the school and its activities.
  • Providing opportunity for exchange of views between the staff and parents.
  • Organising social activities with an aim of bringing staff, parents and the BOM closer together.
  • Providing, through its fund raising efforts, for equipment, scholarships, improvements and development to the school.
Both BOM and PA through their office bearers and membership have steered the school academic standards to a level that is admirable and this is seen through the consistent improvement of results of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education Examinations.

The PA have always played an important role in two areas;

  • Participating in the discussions concerning the annual school budget. The receive the recommendations of the BOM and discus them. They then approve it, which in effect approves the school fees to be charged every year.
  • Participating in the discussions concerning the identification of development projects and prioritization. They then participate in the implementation of the projects as members of the projects and procurement committees.
