Priscilla Sitienei, kenyan grandmother

Priscilla Sitienei, kenyan grandmother, 91, is believed to be the oldest primary school pupil in the world. She enrolled at Leaders Vision Preparatory School in the Rift Valley village of Ndalat five years ago, with the intention of finally learning to read and write. She has returned to primary school along with six of her great-great-grandchildren. Affectionately known as « Gogo », which means grandmother in the local Kalenjin language, Mrs Sitienei grew up under British colonial masters and never had the chance to go to school. She said she wants to be able to read pass on her midwifery skills and write down the herbal remedies she uses in births. She also hopes to inspire those younger than her including her own classmates, aged between 10 and 14, some of whom she delivered as babies.
