Her Excellency The 1st Lady Margaret Kenyatta has expressed her admiration in the way students of Joytown Primary and Secondary Schools, at such a tender age, have perfected lessons that take many people years, even decades to learn.
Speaking when presiding over the secondary school’s Prize Giving Day, Margaret said that she was amazed about the way they knew how to be happy in spite of their challenges; how they thought about others and how they practiced compassion and kindness with one another.
“You have learned to live in gratitude and to live with your hearts not wasting a single minute of life. Being here, being with you students inspires me personally. You all, by being the best of you, help me strive to be the best of me,” she said as she also conveyed greetings to the students from President Uhuru Kenyatta.
She also appreciated the devotion by their parents in raising these wonderful and uniquely gifted children who she referred to as a true blessing to this country. She heaped praise to all the teachers and staff members for their unshaken commitment to lovingly serving those students and equipping them to succeed.
“It is wonderful to see everything you have done to make learning easier for them. I (also) am impressed by the members of the school Board of Management and Parents Association for efficiently managing the institution’s both material and human resources for the well-being of the students.”
The school’s Principal Mrs. Leah M. Kamonye thanked the 1st Lady, President Uhuru Kenyatta, The Area MP, the government, parents and well-wishers for the continued support that has seen the institution’s amenities improve significantly over the last few years. She applauded the government’s proposed new special exams for disabled students saying that it will go a long way in exploiting their gifts in various subjects.
