This year we celebrate our 60th Anniversary. The Math Contest held on 30th October 2021 was an initiative aimed at positively impacting the community around us as we commemorate the Diamond Jubilee.
For many years, Strathmore School has been associated with excellence in academics, especially in mathematics. To share this heritage with the public primary schools in our sub-county(Westlands) we had a boys’ math contest.
The contest was an opportunity to motivate and mentor Standard 8 boys in their final year of school. Teachers also got valuable feedback about the areas that the boys are doing well and the areas they may need to work on as they prepare for KCPE examinations.
Each participating school had to nominate 5 boys and an accompanying teacher. As the boys were tackling math questions, the teachers had a chance to go around the school. The teachers shared teaching experiences and got some insights of how the school operates. After the 2 hour paper the boys had a break and went into a mentoring session by the school Principal Mr. John Muthiora. The principal spoke about The qualities that make a virtuous man. Later after lunch they had a second session by Dr. Jeffery Osoro. Dr. Osoro is the Scholar of the Year 2015 and an alumnus of Nairobi Primary. Dr. Osoro spoke on What it takes to succeed in High School.
At the end of the day prizes were won and attendance certificates issued.
The winning school was Visa Oshwal. They went home with a Trophy, book voucher and contest medals for each participant.
The 1st runner up school was Nairobi Primary School. They went home with a Trophy, book voucher and contest medals for each participant.
The 2nd runner up school was Hospital Hill School. They went home with a Trophy, book voucher and contest medals for each participant.

We hope for the best in KCPE for the schools and the Pupils who participated.
