Girls urged to remain focussed on education

18 June 2012, 08:37 Joseph Mukubwa

Mahiga Girls Secondary School Board of Governor chairman Wahome Gikonyo has advised students to remain disciplined, determined and focused all the time.

The chairman while addressing students during the prize giving day of the school in Othaya said despite the school being the best in last year’s KCSE exams in the area, the students must be determined and put more effort in order to remain at the top.

Gikonyo while acknowledging to all stakeholders who helped the students to excel, he advised the students to continue producing extraordinary results.

“Ordinary students in an ordinary environment can produce extra ordinary results. We can turn around this school and make it shinning and living example. Let us make a vow that impossible is not a vocabulary in our school,” he said.

In last year’s KCSE results, the school produced 4 As, 38 A-, 56 B+, 45 B, 26 B-, 18 C+ and 2 C which made a mean score of B plain.
During the function, 42 students went home with a lap tops and printers.

The chief guest during the occasion was the founder of Lend Me Your Ears John Kageche. The principal of the school Mary Wang’ombe advised students against sneaking mobile phones in the school saying it is a very serious and sensitive offence which could lead to cancellation of exam results.

“We must counsel and monitor the student’s way of dressing. Nobody should tamper with the school uniform by slimming the skirts,” she added.

The school was started in 1976 under AIPCA church sponsorship and it stands on a 23 acre land, most of which are under utilization.
The school started as a harambee mixed school with a single stream.

In 1980, it grew to a double stream with girls only. In 1988, one stream was aided by the Government and another harambee stream was started.

In year 2006, the fourth stream was started and the school became a provincial school the same year.
