Wishing Graduates Success
We are fast approaching the end of another academic year in St. Aloysius Gonzaga Secondary school. By all standards, it has been a good year full of activities and myriad programs. At this point in time, all the students are preparing to undertake their end year examinations which will determine their progress into the next class. But crucial among these students are the form 4 students who will be undertaking their final year examinations from November 6th through to November 30th 2017. This year the school registered 62 candidates (30 girls and 32 boys) for the national examinations also known as Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE). Preparations for the exams are in top gear in school with teachers and students remaining in close contact to give the best possible chance for success for the year. According to Magdalene Valarie and Duncan Mare, who are class prefects to girls’ and boys’ classes respectively, the support they have received from St. Al’s staff is overwhelming. To them, the examinations will present the best platform for the students to show gratitude to teachers, school administration, parents/caregivers and benefactors by recording a sterling performance. The bars have been set high and they are settling for nothing less than grades that will guarantee them direct entries to universities and colleges in order to further their careers. They are optimistic and they believe they will make it. The spirit is upbeat, the mood is lovely, and it is all systems go come November 4th 2017. As a school, we are hoping that despite the political qualms and turmoil currently engulfing the country, our students will be able to join more than 615,284 other students all over the country in this significant step in their academic life. Just like our students themselves, we also hope that majority if not all will be able to attain a minimum grade of C+ (plus) in order to secure direct entry into the government scholarship for their university education.
We therefore ask all our friends and benefactors to remember our students in prayers during this critical moment. We believe that after four years of hard work and dedication, our students are ready to conquer the examinations with a positive attitude and make all of us proud.
