Gionseri Girls Secondary School Principal, Mrs Debrah Osoro (pictured), has denied claims that she is condoning illuminati activities in her school.
The school head was reacting to the rumours that a section of the staff were recruiting students to the cult, accusations she claimed were started by a parent who had issues with the school management.
“We have no single incident of either a staff member or a student subscribed to the cult.
Don’t seek help from witchdoctors when your children fall ill, take them to hospital for examination and treatment,” she said when she addressed parents and students during the Form One and Two class conference.
Mrs. Osoro challenged parents to monitor their children while at home to ensure they are not engaged in misleading activities that can compromise their academic performance.
“Let us (parents and teachers) join hands and raise our children collectively. This will improve their academic performance and spirituality so as to make them responsible members in the society after school,” Mrs Osoro said, sentiments that were echoed by Pastor Joan Moraa, school chaplain.
She decried poor performance of the current Form Two students, saying most of them seemingly got assisted in their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams.
The principal noted the same students rarely borrow text books from the library despite having enough books for all students in the school. Student, book ratio stands at 1:1, according to the school head.
