The school principal for Kenneth Lusaka SA secondary school Jane Wanjala has called upon parents to support students who are in need of essential services to support their studies in school. She said this in an interview to address the academic progress of the school that was established some years back by the speaker of the senate Kenneth Lusaka.


The real condition parents are undergoing since the reopening is much demanding due to the devastating condition of the Covid-19 pandemic. Since the reopening, parents have tried to stabilise the condition of their kids in schools by paying school fees within the required time framework.

The head said that the school is currently working on infrastructure to build more classes since the school is registering an increase in the number of students. The school received funds from the Ministry of education which is currently being used to build the two classroom structure. The classes will aid to decongest the overcrowded classes and provide a conducive environment for the students.

The top student scored a B minus joined Masinde Muliro University and has enrolled for Journalism and mass communication studies. The combined efforts from staff and students led to improved results and the current students are promising for better results .

Mrs Wajala urged the Ministry of education to consider the school since it is operating with a shortage of staff since the population of students has grown.
