Invest in your children for a better tommorow

14 May 2012, 10:27 Saka Richard

Parents from Trans Nzoia county have been urged by the provincial administration to take a key step in ensuring all children  under their custody get quality education as this is the only way to secure this counties 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 as this is the weeding season and instead urged them to avail the children to their educational institutions. Mr. Rissie noted that education was a key pillar in reducing insecurity issues in the region as learned people cannot engage themselves in law breaking activities. He noted that the provincial government would not allow politics to affect education in the area saying that they will stand firm and thwart any moves to paralyze learning activities.

The guest of honor who is also alliance girls principal Mr. David Kariuki failed short of words in describing of how students if natured well can go to greater heights. Using the example of Benny 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,” he urged the students present.

Giving example of his school, Mr. Kariuki noted that there was no stupid person nor clever pupil but the problem is how to nature the immense talent hidden among the students. For the teachers he had several advice including 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. Goseta boys were  awarded the overall best school in the district .
