The Board of Governors of Chaminade Secondary School has today, the 20th of January 2018 awarded all workers of the school for the prowess demonstrated through the colourful 2017 MSCE results.
During the ceremony, the Diocesan Education Desk Officer, Mr Remmie Kamanga commended the school for the steady progress in producing excellent MSCE results. He said that this is a clear manifestation of unity, cooperation and commitment of all players in the school, more especially among teaching staff, none teaching staff and students.
He emphasized that each of the three parties are playing a key role in the success of the school. In a special way he thanked the board of governors for their guidance and the Marianist Brothers for their managerial and financial support. He pledged total support from the Diocese at all times. The board chairperson, Mr Kayange, concurred with the Education Desk Officer and gave a summary of results for the past three years as in the table below:
|Year||No Sat||No Passed||Pass %age|
Chaminade Secondary School is known for its high standards of discipline, spirituality and academics. The school has been a star performer for the past six years in the Northern Education Division and one of the best in the country. Issues of riots, strikes, dropouts, absenteeism and other forms of indiscipline do not have a place at the school. Teachers of the school are well qualified and very hard working.
The awards were in form of monetary tokens which were determined by level of involvement for all staff and individual performance in one’s subject for the teaching staff. The one who produced the highest number of distinctions got the highest amount of money. In the 2017 MSCE results, the highest performing teacher was Mr. Mkandawire, who produced 77 distinctions in Mathematics.
These awards among others are given to employees of the school, both teaching and none teaching staff every year for their good performance. This is a good source of motivation to these employees to work even harder. This is why the school’s performance improves each and every year.
