Primary School Program
Consolata Primary School
Consolata Primary school follows the 8-4-4 system of Education and children are prepared for the K.C.P.E.(Kenya Certificate of Primary education).
The system is structured in a way that within the eight years of primary education, lower primary (class I – III) evolves in upper primary (classes IV-VIII) which in turn will mature into the secondary school (Form I-IV). The Primary school curriculum encourages students to develop an understanding of key concepts in the following subjects:
- LANGUAGE I English Grammar, reading, comprehension and Composition writing
- LANGUAGE II Kiswahili Grammar, reading, comprehension and Composition writing
- SOCIAL STUDIES (History, Civics, Geography, religion)
Our primary school program is based on an interactive child centred philosophy of education. Students are taught to discuss their ideas and be explorative as they learn. The teachers direct learning through questions and making careful observations meant to motivate students to be explorative as well as attentive and open minded. It is a program whose objective is achieving basic literacy and numeracy amongst all pupils, as well as establishing foundations in science, mathematics, geography, history and other social sciences.
During primary school our students advance steadily from one class to the next and are placed in classes with one teacher responsible for their education and welfare in collaboration with other teachers. Each class teacher has responsibility for about 24 students and guides, oversees, and takes significant responsibility for their academic, personal, social and spiritual development. The class teacher is given early warning of any problems or difficulties a student is having and will, if necessary, inform parents promptly.
