Young initiates celebrate their performance in KCPE

As the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education results continue trickling in different parts of the Country, young male initiates who recently underwent the rite of passage had no choice but to join in the celebration mode though half halfheartedly and in pain.
13-year-old Benjamin Kariti from New Bambini School was fished out of his hideout at the Tola Autism International School in the outskirts of Thika town by his teachers and school mates to celebrate his exemplary performance.
Kiriti who could only afford a smile as he was still recovering from the circumcision process led his team mates from his former school by attaining 424 marks and becoming among the top performing students in Thika.
He said that he aspires to be an architect and attributed his success to hard work, putting God first and being focused advising youngsters to put their energies in what is most relevant now.
Kariti’s mother Magdalene Njeri who could not hide her joy said that despite his son being erratic and overly hyper she never shied from instilling discipline whenever need which included a few pinches and canes here and there adding that she has never spared the rod as doing so will only spoil children.
She advised parents to be there for their children by encouraging them saying that parents know best the extent their children can go.
The school Principal Jane Chege said that compared to 2017’s performance, her class of year 2018 had done wonderfully well attributing the incredible results to hardworking teachers, pupil’s commitment,
work ethics, discipline and focus.
Chege said that despite the domineering digital world, pupils were not overtaken by the use of phones urging parents to let their children concentrate in building their foundation for their future.
She lauded the Ministry of Education for streamlining the marking process to ensure that parents find enough time to prepare their children to transit from primary to secondary school even before commencement of Christmas festivities saying that children will enjoy Christmas most when they are aware about their next endeavors.
