Solomon, the King of Israel who was blessed by God with wisdom gives the following advice in Proverbs 4:10 – 17.‘’Listen to me my son. Take seriously what I am telling you, and will live a long life. I have taught you wisdom and the right way to live. Nothing will stand in your way if you walk wisely and you will not stumble when you run.’’

‘’Always remember what you have learned. Your education is your life, guard it well. Do not follow the example of the wicked. Do not do it! Keep away from evil. Refuse it and go on your way. Wicked people can not sleep unless they have hurt someone. Avoid them like plague.

I call upon you students to read and recite the words in Proverbs 4:10-17 and apply them on daily basis. God shall reward your efforts in Kagumo High School.

Education is very important among all of us. Education transforms a person to live a better life and more importantly in a socially well being. It educates us with all the attributes necessary for a proper lifestyle. Education does make a remarkable effect on one’s personality.

Getting educated and finally earning a professional degree prepares you to be a part and contribute in good organizations, companies or institutions. Education provides us the thrust in getting a head and doing something constructive in our near future.

Education involves gathering of knowledge in whatever aspects. It helps a person to draw the best out of their mined and spirit. Education plays a vital role in the personal growth and the social development among all of us. Education imparts us with all the power and necessities in making a noticeable mark in any field. In principle, it is ones education which decides it is ones what one can make out in their life.

Deputy Principal Discipline


Discipline is pegged on good character.

Theodora Roosevelt once said that a sound body is good; a sound mind is better; but a strong and clean character is better than either..

When it comes to influencing people in life, character is everything.

 Billy Graham, one of the greatest evangelists of the last Century one time obsessed that when wealth is lost, nothing is lost, when health is lost something is lost, when character is lost, all is lost.

It is true that character is more important than intellect. According to George Washington, character is the most enviable of all titles in the world.

They say every man has three characters:-

1. That which he exhibits.

2. That which he has.

3. That which he thinks he has.

People draw the inspirations not just from your words but most importantly from your actions.

Reputation is based on words but character on actions. Jack Miner noted, ‘’A man’s reputation is the opinion people have of him; his character is what he really is.

To be a powerful influence in the school and the world at large you must command respect out of your good character, your good morals and your strong values. All these should form the brand you are – a student/ teacher. let your brond be pronounced and let your fellow students teachers understand your stand in life.

And what is the time best of character? You may ask.

Thomas Babingston Macaulay who was a British writer and politician observed that the measure of a man’s character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found.

 Horace Greeley a Newyork Newspaper editor at some point said.

‘’Fame is a vapour popularly an accident, riches take wing and only character endures.

For a moment my dear teacher let your mind linger on these words. Delve into it, grow on it for the wisdom.  

To consistently command success in your life you need a solid character

They once declared that as much as our future is uncertain it is wise to endeavor in a business that you are proud of. A four year journey through the four blocks of this prestigious institution has granted me a chance to endeavor in what I derive my pride in; knowledge. In all its avenues I have gained it and can proudly declare myself a gentleman of consolidated intellect. Brian Mwangi - School President
