“The ministry allocated me students who are not from this locality, being a day school institution many were unable to report form one,” he said.

Charles Ogutu Okeyo, school principal of St. Martin’s Kitinda secondary school in Bungoma County has appealed to Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to post more teachers to his school.

This he said is in a bid to prepare students adequately for Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations.

Speaking to the press in his office, Ogutu said that his school has fewer teachers hence causing the back log of work.

He said that the school has seven teachers employed by TSC and five on board of management. On form one admission, Ogutu noted that the ministry of education allocated him with 165 students but only 62 form ones have reported.

“The ministry allocated me students who are not from this locality, being a day school institution many were unable to report form one,” he said.

He lauded Kanduyi constituency NG-CDF for helping the school put up storey classrooms urging other well-wishers to help the school complete the building so that it can serve the big population.

On a sad note, Ogutu said that teen pregnancy, school drop and drug abuse is the main challenge facing many schools asking parents to guide their children accordingly.

 In his appeal, he asked the ministry of education and well-wishers to help the school purchase more land, adding that the school shares a playing ground with the primary section.

The school is also in need of a science laboratory, library, staffroom and an administration block.

The school principal asked parents to cooperate with the school management to ensure that the school posts better results in national examinations.
