Marist Secondary School beats MSCE result feat, fires lazy teachers

Dedza based Catholic run private secondary school, Marist, has probably beaten the MSCE result history in Malawi with all the 70 candidates with points from six to 17.

Five students got six points each and the whole class of French studies got one point each in the subject.

On Sunday, during the Parent Teacher Asssociation meeting, the five intelligent students who scooped the six points each received awards along with hard working teachers.

Speaking at the event, headmaster of the school, brother Davies Sambo appealed to government and corporate world to consider providing scholarships for needy bright students with the bright future.

School fees currently is pegged at K205 000 per term.

“I will soon be visiting offices to seek assistance. It pains me see very bright students drop out of school because of school fees,” he said.

At least three teachers have been fired at the school for non perfomance or laziness.

Anne M’bwana Jere, whose child, Lumbani is in form two at the institution said she struggled to pay school fees for her second born daughter, Nathan who was at the institution and is now in second year at College of Medicine.

“Am a single mother so it was a struggle to find fees for him. I asked for a scholarship but they said they don’t offer,” said Jere, a primary school teacher in Lilongwe.

Nathan was selected to go to Chaminade Secondary School but feared at 12, he was too young to go to Karonga whilst Lumbani was supposed to go to Bwaila Sec School. The school has weeded 50 students this year in form one due to poor performance.

this school is crap, celebrating that genouses have passed? look at Kalibu, they take even those who fail entrace exams, put them in their class, work on them until they pass their school certificate. thats what we call teaching moulding even the hopeless. by weeding form kids mumati apita kuti? basi their life has ended? mukukhala ngati sindinu school ya church bwanji?

I believe success of a school should be reflected in its ability to turn even the dunce of the class into a star performer. It is because we don’t have knowledge that we go to school so the knowledge is imparted in us. Much as i appreciate the role played by Marist in producing some of the cream of the nation, i still believe they can do better than weeding the poor performers. We already have MANEB to do the “weeding” process. Give them a chance and prove yourself successful by turning them into star performers and NOT by weeding… Read more »
