Some students joining the school will be fully sponsored by both the national government and some county governments to ensure that bright needy students pursued their dreams.

“Shimo la Tewa High School has produced legends that have excelled in academics; most of the big prominent people from this region are alumni of this school. I have no doubt that my child will follow the good examples and come out among the best,” he said.

The school Chief Principal, Mr Mutiso praised the school saying being among the top performing schools in Mombasa the government gave them 400 students for admission.

“We have received a big number of form one admissions from the government. This is because it has faith in results that we produce the best,” he said.

The school head assured parents that they are aware of the deadly virus, thus will safeguard Covid-19 guidelines as outlined by the Ministry of Health.

He told KNA that all the students have face masks, hand sanitizers and water and soap are provided in various areas of the school compound to make sure they sanitize regularly.

“We have also asked students to eat outside and not inside the dining hall to avoid congestion,” he added.

Mutiso assured parents that their children are safe in school and as part of the school discipline they will be taught on how to adhere to Covid-19 protocols and how they can avoid contraction of the virus through health clubs. “As a school, we have a big responsibility to ensure all the children are healthy, thus the need to educate them on the virus and how they can be protected. Through this initiative, we have not left teachers behind,” he noted.
