Meet Millicent Akoth, a guardian of a pupil at Bridge who has also had three of her own children pass through the Bridge teaching system. The first one is currently a second year student at Maseno University while the other two are both in high school. Millicent says enrolling her children at Bridge was a move she has never regretted.
“After enrolling my children at Bridge I saw their performance improve within the first term, my first born was going through challenges in the previous school because the teachers were rarely available unlike at Bridge where teachers have to be accountable for any missed classes.” She says.
Millicent adds that all her children have performed well which is also evident form their performance in the high schools they are currently in because of the high standards of learning set at Bridge.
“Bridge teachers are very committed to their work, class 8 pupils are given a lot of attention and I have seen teachers do their best to ensure they cover the syllabus in time and get enough time for revision.” Says Millicent.
Bridge believes that strong teachers change lives, and empowers teachers to succeed in the classroom through regular training programmes and provision of technology support. It provides positive learning environments in all of its community schools by eliminating corporal punishment from the classroom, and strengthening teacher-pupil relationships.
Because of such foundations, parents like Millicent can proudly say that Bridge has impacted the performance of her children and confidently refer other parents to bridge.
