Kaparo made the remarks at Watamu primary school on Wednesday where he officially opened three classrooms building built by Medina Palms.
Kaparo also urged children to concentrate more on education work since it was the only important gift that they can get from their parents.
“Education is important tool which every one should be armed with and so we are trying to make sure enough classes are there for you children. We have also provided 40 desks so that you can perform well like other schools elsewhere,” he noted.
He urged pupils to make use of the desks and new classes by studying and cooperating with teachers for good performance.
Speaking at the same function Malindi district deputy Education officer Fatuma Dzame Dzombo called up on cooperation between parents and teachers for the sake of good performance of the school.
“If all three ingredients in school cooperate school can perform well. So teacher, parents and children you must cooperate if you want this school to perform well,” said Dzombo.
Watamu ward counselor Anderson Nyundo blamed parents for failing to cooperate with teachers which had led to poor performance of the school.
“Parents should cooperate with teachers for good performance of the school and so they are to blame for the poor performance,” he noted.
