Poor Perfomance In School

Mwinyala Primary school which was my school had been doing well in K.C.P.E and other Exams.It reached a time when the school backslided and it was neither better nor best. After the year 2008 K.C.P.E results, theDistrct Education officer visited our school to ensure that the next years class performs better. The main problem that led to a drop in marks was absentism due to lack of school fees. After listening keenly to the problems the DEO asked our headteacher not to send any pupil at home while the pupil is needy. He took our names and enrolled us yo a programme that helped in paying fees. When we did our K.C.P.E Exam, our school was among the top 10 and the most improved.
