Principal Masese Unperturbed After Being Served With Two Transfer Letters
Bishop Mugendi Nyakegogi Secondary School Principal Mr Boniface Masese is set to be transferred days after being appointed.
While at St Pauls Igonga Mr Masese led the school to a 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) mean score of 10.24.
In the 2022 KCSE examinations, one candidate scored grade A, 28 had A-, 78 B+ and 11 B plain respectively.
Mr Masese was transferred during the recent reshuffling of teachers as he took over the reins from Richard Keindiywo who was moved to Chepteya High School.
Mr Masese will now relocate to Iteierio High School in Kisii South to replace Peter Ratori who was transferred to Sori Secondary School in Migori County.
Mr Masese confirmed to members of the media that he had indeed received a second transfer letter barely having time to settle in his current school.
He said he was at home in his current school but revealed that he was willing to work at any station based on the directions issued by his employer the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
“We are civil servants who can report and work wherever and whenever duty calls,” he said.
He revealed that the first thing he was going to do at his new station was to try and learn as much as he could about his new environment before starting to set any goals.
“I do not want to walk alone but I want to work and walk with the entire school fraternity because education success is a collective responsibility,” he said.
The chairperson of the school’s Board of Management Fr. Francis Mose said that he knew about the two transfer letters but he calmed parents’ concerns by saying that he had informed the TSC office in the county about the transfer drama.
The school is academically considered to be a sleeping giant in Kisii County having posted great results in past years.
The school had 330 candidates who attained a mean grade of 4.6 in the 2022 KCSE examinations with 17 candidates scoring grades C+ (Plus) and qualifying for direct entry to university while 45 and 59 candidates attained grades C (Plain) and C- (minus) respectively.
