Christian Religious Education  (CRE)

Strategies employed by the teachers include:

  • Syllabus coverage in good time to give adequate time for revision.
  • Teacher guided revision.
  • Exposing students to variety of exams from different district mocks.
  • Working as a team- in teaching, assessment.


The Christian Religious Education syllabus covers three main areas: the Bible (Old and New Testaments) African Religious heritage and Contemporary Christian Living. The syllabus aims at creating awareness in the learner of his/her life and relationship with God as revealed in Jesus Christ in a changing and developing society in which he/s he is a member. The approach adopted for the study of these broad areas is thematic. This calls for a learning situation in which the learner together with the teacher use Christian insights to critically analyse, evaluate, judge and discover the implications of the issues raised, for his/her own life. The study of this course is progressive in that it begins with the creation of the universe, the fall of man, the promise of salvation and its fulfilments in Jesus Christ.

St. Luke’s gospel has been selected for study because it has a more chronological account of the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. The use of Christian teaching in the syllabus refers to the biblical teaching on various issues. The student in form 2 covers this gospel the whole year.

The African Religious Heritage aims at educating the learner on his or her cultural background. It also acts as a major bond of integration with Christianity. In this study the African heritage should be presented as a living experience and not as a living phenomenon of the past. Emphasis should be on the positive aspects of the African heritage. The term “society” is used to refer to African people in general, whereas the term “African Community” refers to a particular ethnic community.

The course on Contemporary Christian Living enhances appreciation of pertinent social, political, religious, ethical and economic issues affecting the world today.

Finally it is important to note that Christian Religious Education seeks to develop a positive attitude in the learner, towards God, the self, others and the environment in which he/she lives. This is actually according to our school mission, vision and the core values. Attitudes are naturally subjective and therefore difficult to measure reliably and to validate using a paper and pencil test. However, the classroom teacher through observation and through a period of time can assess attitudes with a considerable degree of reliability. It is for this reason, that, although the attitudinal objectives may not seem to have content directly linked to them, they are closely related to the content covered.

History




         In history, students are taught important aspects of human life. Therefore, students study carefully past events, select what is beneficial and apply it in the present. On the other hand, government as an aspect of exercising authority over the subjects provides students with  an opportunity to be conversant with leadership systems, conceptualize and and internalize those systems and find out the most appropriate in the contemporary society.

       The History department in Mt Larvena aims at producing students who are aware of their environment and what the environment expects from them .The department aims at being the best performing in the school through teamwork and earlier coverage of the syllabus. Intensive revision is carried out and students are frequently encouraged   to work as a team inorder to understand and internalize the subject rather than memorizing the content.

 Geography





Scientific study of the earth as a home of man. Geographers have always followed a logical sequence of events. They have been able to analyze data and make conclusions based on evidence. Teachers of Geography ensure that the distribution and interrelationship of natural and human environment on earth’s surface is seen.

Recent changes in the teaching and learning of geography has dictated that learners and writers of Geography be alert since Geography is a dynamic subject.

To ensure that objectives are realized, learners have been able to go for geographical tours and trips, seeking advice from examiners on the current technique adopted by the Kenya national examination council. The department is intending to set up a metrological station in school to make learning more practical and improve the learner’s observational skills. Students, also, participate in symposiums with national schools as a way of enhancing their geographical knowledge.

Students of geography embark on a journey that transforms the students from subject to citizens, this is a useful for them to comprehend their role at the national level.
