During the event, the school spoiled the outstanding  Form 4 students prior to their Malawi School Leaving Certificate  Examinations (MSCE) which commenced on 18th June 2019.

The students, who performed well in class and different disciplines, were spoiled with gifts worth millions.

For instance, Wezzie Mkandawire,  who  was best science student  of the year got K50 000, while Rabecca Mambi also  got  K50 000 for being outstanding in humanities.

Also from boys ,Edgar Mbayani and Chisomo Kadaluka were also awarded for best perfomance in class.

The academy’s managing director Ernest Kaonga said they decided to award the performing students as one way of motivating them ahead of the MSCE.

“We thought it wise to motivate the out-going students for them to have the desire to achieve so much more. As Maranatha weassure them that the best is yet to come from us,” said Kaonga.

Kaonga also announced that the school will continue dangling for scholarships to outstanding students at the school.

He said the move is expected to increase competition in classes and improve performance in the MSCE examinations.

Said Kaonga: “As we proceed with our aim to produce the best results at secondary school level, we will continue to reward outstanding students with scholarships.”

This development is coming at a time when Maranatha Academy   have managed to send a   total of 153 students   to different universities in Malawi.

He also stressed that the school will continue to aim at increasing the good results through management of quality assurance drills which will continuously ensure that education delivery services at the institution are not compromised.

The academy enrolls both boys and girls and it offers MSCE as well as the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) classes for both Ordinary and Advanced levels, including computer lessons.

Speaking on the same function,guest of honour Special Advisor to First LadyGetrude Mutharika, Emma Mabvumbwe hailed Maranatha Academy for being outstanding in helping government uplifting education.

She said that is why Beautify Malawi Foundation partnered with Maranatha Academy to join forces in providing quality education to the less privileged.

“Through this partnership,Maranatha currently has 55 students fully sponsored by Beam Trust in all forms,” she said.

Mabvumbwe also advised the graduating class that after dispersing they will be totally different environment with new friends.

“You will be subject to new peer pressures.Believe you me,this pressure is really tough.Immediately after your exams,you will call yourself aku world and you would want to behave differently.

“In no time at all,you will be in different universities and colleges,there the pressure is even tougher.With no one to control you,things can go haywire if not handled correctly,” she said.

Instead, she advised them: “This will definately require emotional adjustment.Maintain who you are,your moral values.”

Let me tell you facts. Kaonga is a good marketer. I know he is an engineer but I like the way he sells his Maranatha schools. He gets those who flopped at MSCE and when they repeat, they get better grades. The trick in his marketing gimmick is that people do not know how many Maranatha schools are out there. So the figures are a very small percentage of the number of Form Fours students he has. When there are for example, 5 students with 7 points, find out if they are from one Maranatha school.You will be suprised. But… Read more »

Dudujipi, achina Gas Machine Head are part of those dull, jealous guys who spend their time drinking in bars and gossiping about women that are unaware of their existence! Anthu oterewa satha kuyamika! Even when they can see Kaonga doing 90% good, they will concentrate on the 10% bad about him. These are the type of guys who believe that if they all keep repeating the same story over & over again, something will happen but they can’t show a single thing which they own, not even a bawo board! KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK
