Glory Baptist Nursery Head Advises Parents

Glory Baptist Nursery School recently held their graduation ceremony at the church premises. Speaking at the occasion, the school head advised parents to be more committed to their children's welfare. Mrs. Kamanda, the head mistress of the school, said that coming together for a common purpose was fitting as children transit from lower basic school to primary level.

She said, "I must remind parents that they have to redouble their efforts to make their children come to school on time." She said that those children that arrive at school on time will always be ahead of those who arrive late. She stated that those who are arriving late for school will find it difficult to be promoted to Grade One.

Mrs. Kamanda further said that parents now complain if their children do not excel in Grade One, forgetting that many of their children have missed a lot of time at school. She also mentioned the fact that some parents are keeping their children at home when school reopens on flimsy excuses.

Many parents confirmed to The Point that the Headmistress was correct in her assertions. They agreed that it was high time that many people began to change their attitude and approach to their children's education. Certificates, many of them presented by parents, were given to those passing out of the primary section.
