CCP Holds a High School Students and Guardians Meeting
On April 11th 52 high school students and 42 guardians attended CCP’s high school meeting held at Maranatha Faith Assemblies Gatina. The high schoolers meeting is held every holiday month to find out how the students are doing in school, acknowledge those who are doing well, as well find out any issues of concern. During this meeting, Benard Okoth CCP’s Education Coordinator advised the student on subject selection. He said the Kenya National Examination Council considers only 7 subjects in computing a student’s final score in the Kenya Certificate of secondary Education (K.C.S.E). The seven are categorized into four namely; Compulsory subjects, Sciences, Humanities and Optional subjects. The compulsory subjects are Mathematics, English and Kiswahili. From the sciences category (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) only two subjects are needed, chemistry is however a compulsory science. In the Humanities category (Geography, History and Christian Religious Education (C.R.E) only one subject is needed and finally from the optional subjects (Agriculture, Computer science, Home Science, Business Studies, Foreign Languages and such only one is needed. He advocated for them to select subjects wisely in the order given above so they can make their revision easy and also for easy career course combination. He also talked about four things a good student practices. The four are; passion about a certain career, takes stock of their talents, abilities and gifts, has a target and a plan towards it and has a good relationship with God. Mable Umali CCP’s Medical Coordinator reminded the students to submit their report cards and fees structures to CCP office within the first week of closing school. This would give the office an opportunity to prepare fees payment in good time. She also encouraged parents to register with the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) also citing that CCP pays NHIF contributions for all the orphaned children in the program. She encouraged the students to always communicate in case they are sick while at school and help will reach them. Towards the end Stella Mwangi CCP’S Managing Director encouraged all the students to strive to get to at least 40-50 marks in each subject. ‘’We would like to transition all of you to collage, at least a diploma course. We hate to through away anyone of you to the dogs’ she said. Stella asked the students to participate in the ongoing Vocational Bible School (VBS) and also finish the holiday assignment by April 20th. Speaking to the parents, she urged them to cooperate with CCP by playing their roles diligently. She said to the student that discipline, obedience, and good character are key for success alongside good grade. Later it was time to acknowledge good performance. Stella awarded a gift of free scholarship to ten students who had scored a B- and above in the last examination. All the students that had improved their marks were awarded or maintained their K.C.P.E grade were awarded KES 500 gift while those who scored a B- and above were awarded KES 1,000.
