One school in the Western region that is built on a rock is said to have been a well performing institution for the last 32 years since it was began. Shikhulu Secondary School is in Likuyani Constituency and has a large land of about 3 hectares but 90% of it is a rock.
According to the school principal, despite it lacking enough space for students to play when out for break, its students have been shining in national examinations. In the last KCSE examinations, the school was second in their Sub-county.
He added that during cold seasons, the temperatures of the rock goes down making it extremely cold. The same happens on hot days when temperatures shoot high because of the rock on which it is built.
He added that, they are sometimes forced to seek permission from their neighbouring primary school to carry out major sports activities. This has greatly been affecting talented students as they lack enough space to nurture their skills.
