Barely three weeks after schools closed for the December holidays, Tala Township Primary School in Matungulu Sub County opened its doors to interview new pupils seeking to join the school come January next year. Hundreds of new parents thronged the institution on Tuesday accompanied by their children to try their luck in joining one of the region's best public primary schools.

A spot check by this writer discovered parents traveled from different parts of the country to seek opportunities for their children to join the respected academic giant. The school, headed by veteran educationist Jonathan Muli, posted extremely impressive results in last year's KCPE examination, with dozens of candidates securing places in leading national schools.

A team of highly dedicated teachers worked tirelessly to conduct academic tests for hundreds of pupils who competed for the few vacancies available in the school. One of the parents we spoke to said the school had earned a good name for posting good results as well as discipline among pupils. "All a parent needs is good results and disciplined child, and that is exactly what we have seen in this school," he said.
