Finally attitude is very instrumental in academic excellence and other aspects of life. Life is the greatest asset give to us by God. We can either make life enjoyable and meaningful to ourselves or difficult. It’s the attitude and worth input that makes the difference. When we acquire a positive attitude towards life, the work output that we reap from our labour is always rewarding. On the other hand, if we choose to be led by negative attitude and feelings of animosity towards life, then the outcome is always disastrous not only to us but also to those around us.
Most of our students have made a personal decision to change their perception so as to reap the hard earned fruits of academics since success is a personal decision. With God all this is possible. God bless you all.Mrs. Kirimi - Examinations Officer
