Parents in Likuyani district have been urged to develop keen interest in their children’s education as well as work closely with teachers in order to produce quality results in national examinations.
This was said by Mrs. Mary Manyonge, the principal MatundaSalvation ArmyDay and Mixed Secondary School during a thanks giving and reward ceremony to students from the school who posted exemplary results in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE).
Mrs. Manyonge who is also the chairperson for Likuyani district Secondary Schools Heads Association observed that for good results to be realized, it called for concerted efforts of hard work, commitment and good relationship from all education stakeholders in the area.
The Principal thanked her last year’s candidates for overcoming many challenges usually associated with day and mixed schools by registering encouraging results compared to boarding schools in the district.
Matunda Salvation Army Secondary is priding itself for being the only school from Likuyani district to have the highest number of students who achieved university grades.
About 76 students out of the 150 who sat their exams in the school scored C+ and above mean grades in last year’s national examination, with 28 students scoring direct university entry grades.
The Principal promised parents that with help from them the school will keep posting good grades in subsequent exams.
