Nairobi, 15 August, 2023 / 9:57 pm (ACI Africa).
Principals of Catholic Schools in Kenya have been urged to maintain high moral standards in the institutions they manage, and to never shy away from witnessing Christ to nurture holistic learners that are morally and spiritually equipped.
In his Tuesday, August 15 remarks during the official opening of the eighth edition of Kenya’s Catholic Schools’ Principals Association (CaSPA) conference in Nairobi, Bishop Mark Kadima Wamukoya of Bungoma Diocese said Catholic institutions place a lot of value on education because it is one of the most critical pillars of the Church.
“Do not shy away from witnessing Christ in your schools, set high standards for your teachers so that together, you can help in nurturing the learners to grow intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and morally,” Bishop Kadima said at the start of the three-day event taking place at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA).
He added, “As you start this CaSPA conference, I pray that God will guide you in your discussions so that you may emerge from this place energized and ready to serve with renewed vigor.”
The conference that the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) Commission for Education and Religious Education (CERE) is spearheading seeks to equip teachers with values, and morals in faith formation.
