Kaseye Girls Secondary School 2019 Malawi School Certificate of Education Examinations candidates have been urged to remain focused in their studies if they are to do well in the impending examinations.
Father Cyprian Ng’oma, who presided over the graduation ceremony at the school on behalf of Bishop Martin Anwel Mtumbuka of the Diocese of Karonga, made this call on 15 June, 2019.
Father Ng’oma further urged students to remain humble but not to be satisfied with what they have achieved so far. He challenged them to aim high and dream about attaining university degrees.
“I have celebrated Mass and blessed your writing materials including sets of mathematical instruments. But you still need to be focused and keep on dreaming,” said Father Ng’oma.
“Bear with one another, forgiving one another, be humble and gentle, do not be harsh and have genuine concern for others if you want to be good citizens. Above all focus on your spiritual growth. Continue working hard and praying hard for your names to be written in heaven,” added Father Ng’oma.
Taking her turn, the Head teacher Sister Clementina Phiri expressed optimism that the girls will do well in their examinations.
‘’I and my fellow teachers have been with them throughout the Easter holiday and the competition they have in class was just good. This is an indication that the results will also be good,” she said.
92 girls are set to sit for this year’s national examinations, prepared by Malawi National Examinations Board (MANEB), at the school.
During the ceremony which started with Eucharistic celebration, each student received a certificate of completion. Sixteen outstanding students were awarded certificates of appreciation/ recognition. These were outstanding in the following areas; French speaking, English speaking, multitalented, the most improved student, academic excellence and others.
Also present at the function were a motivational speaker Counsel Hazel O. Miseleni, the District Education Manager [DEM] for Chitipa and the Diocesan Education Coordinator Mr. Remmie Kamanga.
