Teachers’ Service Commission( TSC) CEO Nancy Macharia says the Narok teacher who was walking for 20 kilometres daily to ensure candidates sat for their KCSE exams will be rewarded.
“You may have read in the papers about the teacher in Narok county who walks long distances daily. We celebrate such teachers and urge them to keep up with the good job,” Macharia said during the release of KCPE results on Thursday.
Mrs. Magdalene Kimani, the principal at Sosiana High School in Narok, said that she walked a round trip of 20 kilometres each day since the KCSE examinations began.
Rough Narok Roads
Speaking to a local station, Mrs. Kimani said that she endures the rough terrain of the Murkan-Sosiana road, inaccessible by vehicles, from as early as 6 am to ensure students begin their examination on time.
Macharia further said that no teacher would be punished for sacrifices made during the exam period, “we have no intention of punishing any teacher who goes beyond the call of duty to help our learners.”
Acknowledging their hard work, Macharia appreciated all center managers who woke up early to ensure they pick the examination materials in time and return them after the examinations are done.
Macharia promised a token of appreciation to all teachers who performed well in various subjects in both KCPE and KCSE examinations.
“The TSC will reward all teachers who performed exemplary well in their duties especially in their duties and especially in recording improved performance in national examinations, which includes KCPE,” Macharia said.
