Parents from Trans Nzoia County have been urged by the provincial administration to take key step in ensuring all children under their custody get quality education as this is the only way to secure this county’s future.
Speaking at St. Barnabas high school Sabwani during the districts education day, Kwanza D.C Mr. Gabriel Rissie called upon the parents to stop the notion of engaging the school children on menial works especially during this weeding season and instead urged them to avail the children to their educational institutions.
Mr. Rissie noted that education is a key pillar in reducing insecurity issues in the region as learned people are not likely to engage themselves in law breaking activities.
He noted that the provincial administration would not allow politics to affect education in the area saying that they will stand firm and thwart any moves meant to paralyze learning activities.
The guest of honor who is also the principal for Alliance Girls’ High School Mr. David Kariuki explained the need for education and described how students can be nurtured well to go greater heights.
Using the example of Ben Carson a famous neuron surgeon, the humorous Mr. Kariuki narrated of how an A can be achieved from a total failure perceived student.
“The road to success is always under construction, so never give up,” Mr. Kariuki urged the students present.
Giving example of his school, Mr. Kariuki noted that there was no stupid person or clever pupil but the problem is how to nurture the immense talent hidden among the students.
For the teachers, he had several advices saying that a good teacher is a master of details as he should be ahead of his students always.
“You as a teacher have been privileged by the society to enlighten them so do more than your are paid for and to the parents education is an investment you can ever give to your children,” Mr. Kariuki advised the teachers.
Mr. Kariuki called upon the local leaders to invest in education to propel the county to greater heights both academically and economically.
