Nyaga  who is a professional secondary school teacher said having realised the potential the needy students  had , decided to assist them by offering full scholarships as his part of corporate responsibility .

He said as a result of his generosity to the needy God had blessed his school and a which at the moment has  an enrolment of 1815 learners while last year it had 1510.

“We  have continued to expand on infrastructure to accommodate the rising number of children while we are also in the process of procuring two more buses to increase our existing fleet due to the high demand we  are receiving from parents from almost every corner of the County,” he said.

Former Alliance Boys High school  David Kariuki who was the guest Speaker asked  the parents to invest in their children and not for their children .

“Once you invest in your children you are assured  of the continuation of your family since the children will look for their own wealth but once you invest for the them they will later as has been clearly evidenced and documented squander  everything  and become paupers ,”he cautioned .

The career educationist also  warned parents never to speak ill of teachers or consume alcohol in the presence of their children .

He said most of the indiscipline case occurring in schools were as a result of poor parenting and this should stop if the country’s  future was  expected to be  banked  in the hands  of such children.

On a lighter note Kariuki asked voters to look for a cat that can catch the mouse  and reject those with well documented dark past .

“As long as a cat can catch  a mouse  ,I think such a cat can be  voted into any elective positions since it is a performer ,”he said.

The  school has both Day and Boarding facilities hence the high enrolment rate coupled by its good examination performance and the high  transition rate to nationals  schools and public Universities .

Last year the school  had  147 KCPE  candidates while the number  has risen to 160 this year who have  promised to break the record attained by their predecessors .
