WISER Community Update

The focus of WISER this term remains on upcoming examinations as the teachers and students continue to undergo diligent preparations. It is always extremely impressive to witness the tremendous focus of the girls as they study late into the evening!  WISER ranked number 6 in all of the schools in the Migori-Nyatike District with a mean score of 6.571!  We were extremely proud that Diana Achieng Okeyo received the 4th highest score overall and was the 2nd top scoring girl in the District!


WISER was delighted to receive a visit from Duke Senior Admissions Officer, Ben Adams.  The girls learned about the admissions process and received valuable advice about the transition to university life.


Third term has been a busy and exciting time for the WISERBridge Program! WISERBridge lessons are in full swing as teachers and students diligently prepare for the Kenya Primary Education (KCPE) Exam set to take place in November.


WISERBridge hosted its first-ever awards ceremony.  The event was a great success and provided a valuable opportunity to recognize the achievements of various schools, teachers and students during the Term 2 WISERBridge exam.


Based on particularly low scores in languages, WISER hosted a seminar that focused on strategies for tackling Insha and Composition.  Teacher feedback was overwhelmingly positive and it has been great to see teachers implementing their new knowledge.


WISER Applications have been collected from Standard 8 girls from 15 primary schools throughout Muhuru Bay.  Students were extremely enthusiastic and everyone at WISER is very excited to begin the next steps of the application process.  We are confident that we will find a great group of girls to join the WISER family next year!
