“I would like to express my gratitude to team Onathinge for exceeding the target despite major challenges.
“The year of 2017 was one of the toughest years in education with a major financial crisis, but we managed to excel,” Amuthenu said. Amuthenu added that the circuit worked well as a team with school principals providing leadership at their various schools.
“Our special appreciation goes to all the teachers who gave classes during weekends and holidays without any compensation.
“And also to all the parents for preparing porridge at the schools, and for supervising and catering during examination time,” Amuthenu said.
