On March 3rd, the Ministry of Education released the results for Form 4 class of 2013. This is the final year of Secondary School and across the country over 450,000 students sat for these exams. Ruben centre sponsored 13 students for their secondary education and one Kelvin Mwatu is now a teacher aid in the Ruben primary school. Kelvin was very excited yesterday as he moved around telling his colleagues that he had scored an A level pass.  According to the newspaper there were 2,722 a level passes and so that makes him in the top 1% of all students across the country. Kelvin began his education at Ruben in nursery class some 13 years ago, and now he awaits news of university places. He wants to do medicine or engineering and his sponsors Wave Trust will continue to assist hm.  Kelvin is the oldest child in his family and so he has set the bar high for the younger ones still on the way. All staff at Ruben centre congratulate him and the Administration is also very grateful to Waves Trust a family initiative of Malcolm and Margaret Savage  of the UK.

Well done.
