93.6% of the candidates attained at least a principal pass in their courses. One student scored straight ‘A’s, with nine others recording good performances scoring at least two A grades. Thirty-five managed to attain scholarship points for studies abroad while forty-one others scored the 12 point and ANHRD threshold for local scholarships.

The director of Sals, Lester Omondi, stated that Sals has undergone transformational phases, to align with the best modern educational practices, and making it a better learning centre.

“As Sals fulfils its mandate as a feeder institution, and to better respond to national manpower needs, subjects on offer have increased from the initial 14 to 18. Infrastructural renovations have been carried out especially in the year 2016 where repair works, courtesy of the Ministry of Education, were done,” he said.

He added that apart from academic and related achievements, Sals has excelled in extra-curricular activities and competitions, national debates, PowerPoint presentation competitions, among others.
