St. Francis Girls High School in Mang’u was started as a boarding intermediate school for girls in 1944 and named after the patron saint of the Congregation of the Franciscan Missionary Sisters for Africa (FMSA). The congregation founded the school as part of its evangelistic mission in Mang’u. The school is located at Mang’u, a few kilometers off the Nairobi-Thika super highway.
The Placement Service was invited to be part of the school’s annual career fair held on June 11, 2016.
The Placement Service staff were warmly received at the event that was also attended by speakers from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology and Safaricom.
The Placement Service staff sensitised the students on various issues concerning the placement of government-sponsored students to universities and colleges and career choices.
These included the background of the Placement Service, its functions and the transition from the Joint Admissions Board. The students were also enlightened on eligibility for government sponsorship, affirmative action, subject requirements for various programmes/courses and the online application process.
The other guests were given an opportunity to address the students, which was followed by a question-answer session, during which various issues were clarified. The career fair ended at 5pm with a vote of thanks from the Principal, Mrs. Jacinta Njeru Ngure.
