Form One Boy Reports to School with a Rooster
A Form One student who reported to school carrying a rooster as his school fees have been accepted into the school after good Samaritans bailed him out.
Lawrence Murimi and his mother raised eyebrows when they resorted to offering their rooster as school fees to Kangaru High School where he was set to report in Form One.
Mother and son were brought to tears and were in despair when the principals refused to allow the boy’s admission to the school-based in Embu.
However, goodhearted people came to the boy’s rescue to ensure his admission to the school.
Police Officers donate school fees to Needy Student
Generous police officers from Machakos came to the rescue of a needy student who almost missed out on Form One admission due to not having school fees.
Led by Issa Muhammud, the officers generously donated and conducted a fundraiser for the boy and successfully managed to get the required school fees for the boy’s admission to Form One.
The boy, Simon Nzioki had scored 403 marks in the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations and had reported to Machakos High School with no school fees.
Luckily, as fate could have it, the police officers managed to raise Kshs. 200,000 during the fundraising.
The money will now cover the boy’s school fees and other expenses for the foreseeable duration of the boy in the school up to Form Four.
“It is our social responsibility…as the National Police of Machakos, we held a fundraiser for a needy boy who scored 403 marks in his KCPE examination but was disadvantaged because of poor financial background,” said Muhammad.
Muhamud came to Nzioki’s aid when the OCS briefed her and she decided to help the boy.
