Parents Urged To Encourage KCPE Students Regardless Of Their Grades.
The President of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (SDA) in Migori County has urged parents to support their children who took the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) in 2021.
Pastor Otieno Ngore, speaking at the SDA Headquarters in Ranen, Awendo Sub County, said guardians should positively inspire their children, regardless of their grades, to make a positive impact in their lives.
He advised parents to motivate their children who did not perform well in the recently released KCPE results and to keep them focused as they transition to secondary schools.
Ngore, whose son, Jared, graduated third in Migori County with 412 marks from Ranen Adventist School, stated that grades and marks do not always define a person.
He stated that what the student does with those grades after that is what is important.
He stated that there is no such thing as failure in national exams and that everyone has the potential to become someone in the future.
According to Ngore, exam grades are influenced by a variety of factors, but the most important factor is how parents participate in ensuring that their children are motivated.
According to the clergyman, children can become whoever they want if their guardians encourage, support, and stand by them.
Pastor Osoba James, Director of Education, Ranen Conference SDA Migori County, stated that churches should play an important role in educating and instilling moral and good Christian values in children as they enter high school.

He stated that students attend school in order to obtain an education and good grades, but that education without Christian morals and values is meaningless.
Pastor Osoba stated that Ranen Institution, which includes a church radio, a secondary and a primary school, strives to provide the best education possible while also providing Christian nourishment.
He stated that teaching children Christian values will give students an advantage in their academic performance. He claims that Christian values lead to better discipline, which leads to improved performance.
“Academic grades will help you to transit to another level, but God will enable you to succeed”, noted Osoba.
He stated that everyone is born to succeed and encouraged students to raise their academic standards while maintaining a balance of faith and academics.
Aside from producing the county’s third-best student, the school also produced seven students who scored above 400 points, and 22 students who scored above 350 points with a mean score of 363.
