6 best gifts to award KCPE students who have excelled

You can start by giving them lots of cash.

And no, this is not some kind of hint I am writing to my parents on what they should have gotten me when I finished KCPE.

Here are the 6 best gifts to award the students who have passed KCPE.

A safari

The ultimate Kenyan experience, apart from eating nyama choma and being robbed in Nairobi, is definitely a safari in one of our countless game parks and reserves.

If your pupil is also a bit of a boffin, you can take him or her to unique locales for him/her to brag about when they finally enrol in form 1.



No mention of school until January

School is always stressful. And well-meaning family members seem to forget that. Once the results are announced, messages are forwarded in WhatsApp groups about how Junior passed KCPE. You don’t need to then ask them again when you encounter them about school. They deserve a holiday from all your feckless nagging.

An adventure

You can take your star student on a student. If they’re up for it, you can take them for Go-Karting or paintball (I’m not sure about the age limit on this one).

Get them tickets to see Jumanji

Or any other movie.

Go on a family getaway

Treat your star student to a stay at a luxury hotel. Families are getting discount on their trips in most beach resorts at this time of year anyway.
