The importance of parent involvement was highlighted by by Mama Sue and headteacher, Md Milka, when they spoke to a gathering of parents and guardians of our children in Happy House School yesterday.
While teachers do all they can, a child's education also requires support and encouragement from home.
It was the first parents' meeting of the new term and a first for those whose children have just joined us on our Dr Danwata Scholarship Scheme.
Afterwards Class Eight, who will be tatking their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education exam in November, were reminded of the need to work hard as time will go over very quickly.
As growing young people, they also received a deodorant each and guidance on how it should be used.
Today, Mama and her team will be talking to classes six and seven in an effort to get them focussed on achieving their very best.
