Science can be a difficult subject without visual aides, lab instruments and the capacity to do experiments.  Equipping the chemistry, physics and biology labs has been an intentional focus. 

BLISS is one of only 3 secondary schools out of 57 in the District to offer PhysicsThis is exceptional
for a day school.  In 2009, their science team won 3rd place at the Provincial Science Fair.  KUEF continues to support the developing science program at BLISS.   Shown here are Esther, the biology teacher and Gilbert, the chemistry instructor.




KUEF is pleased to announce the completion of the new Science Classroom Block.

In November the Form 4 (senior) year, pending graduates take the fourteen day Kenyan National Examination.  This highly rigorous and competitive exam determines a student's options for advancement to a university or college.  More than 300,000 Form 4 students across Kenya take the exam each year, and the top 20,000 are awarded public university acceptance and Kenyan government scholarships.  Students below the top 20,000 have the option to attend a private university, or a two year college/certificate program, though students at BLISS cannot afford the tuition.
