Teachers and the support staff at Kaseye Girls Secondary School have been given a pat on their backs by the institution’s Board of Governors during award presentation ceremony held last week in Chitipa District to acknowledge their hard work.
This follows the release of 2019 Malawi School Certificate of Education Examination results which has seen the school registering 99.8% pass rate, calling for the honour of teachers and support staff for their gallant effort injected on the institution to yield standard results.
The function was graced by the representative of the Board, representative of Primary Education Advisor (PEA) and other stakeholders for the school.
Commenting on the matter, one of the teachers, Thokozani Mphande, an English teacher, applauded the initiative made by the Board; saying, its one way of encouraging teachers to work extra hard in delivering to the students for best results.
“I am happy and pleased with this initiative, since its one way of motivating us to work extra hard by instilling hard working spirit in every teacher so that next time they receive more after producing many distinctions,” said Mphande.
Kaseye Girls is among the best performing schools in the just released MSCE results. The awards came in two categories of all Form 4 teachers with best results in particular subjects and staff members, respectively.
The initiative is expected to trigger drastic delivery of education services at the institution as it has been deemed as a great source of motivation.
Taking her part, the Headmistress for Kaseye Girls Secondary School Sister Clementine Phiri applauded the teachers and the support staff for the job well done, saying their efforts are not lightly perceived.
“I am glad today to be part of this get together because we all worked to get such points and I believe we will produce 100% pass rate this academic year,” says Sister Phiri.
She discouraged teachers from being complacent, but to continue working hard for excellent results and thus outshine other schools. “Today we celebrate our victory that we have achieved good results, but then we should not relax because we have Chaminade Boys Secondary School which also performs better, let us work harder and maintain our excellence,” she articulated.
