STUDENTS URGED TO WORK HARD IN SCHOOL FOR A BETTER FUTURE
High school students in the County have been urged to rev up their ambitions for success through hard work in their studies.
The call was made by CEC Member for Health and Sanitation Ruth Koech, when she addressed students at Aldai Girls Secondary School in Aldai Sub County.
She argued that the learners could only be able to drive poverty from their homes through education.
The CEC Member, urged the learners to use the opportunity to transform their future.
She further advised the students to play their roles by applying the skills taught by their teachers.
“You must continue to work hard. Hard work has no alternative. If your name must be mentioned in the annals of time you must labour hard for it. No cross, no crown, as there is no sweetness without sweat,” she said.
“Time may show you its hard side; in fact the whole world is presently witnessing the harder side of life. But hard times never last, tough people do. It is when there seems to be no way forward that you must employ all within your composition to bear the torch of progress,” she noted.
Also present was Kaptumo/Kaboi Ward MCA Hon Isaac Mosbey, who emphasized the role of teachers in imparting values and highlighted that it’s the students who ultimately apply these values within the societal norms and rules.
“Teachers will impart values but it is the students who will apply them according to the norms and the rules of the society,” said Kaptumo/Kaboi Ward MCA Hon Isaac Mosbey
On her part the School Principal Perez Siele said “Set a target to be achieved. This is just the beginning of what you need to do to be great. I have no doubt in me that since you are able to endure the first 4 most difficult years of formal learning, nothing could stop you if you are willing to advance.”
