Months before sitting KCPE, Chantal was finalising preparations to join the prestigious St Andrew’s School Turi near Nakuru town.

Part of the preparations included a special entry examination.

When she took the assessment test in the second term, Chantal performed exceedingly well, so much so that St Andrew’s admitted her as an academic scholar.

The headmaster, Andrew Boulle, termed Chantal as an excellent addition to the St Andrew’s family.

Speaking to The Standard, Chantal said it was her decision to join St Andrew’s and that her parents supported her.

Frankie Gichuru, the St Andrew’s director of admissions and marketing, said that that right from the initial assessment, the school recognised Chantal’s exceptional brightness.

“St Andrew’s is a very selective school. Students have to go through a thorough assessment to join. For Chantal, the school expects a lot of her owing to her academic scholar status.”
