MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
My life’s experiences have taught me a lot in life; one great lesson being that an investment in knowledge brings in the greatest and lasting profits. It was with that in mind that The Corner Brook School was started. Too much hype over the girl child with less regard of the boy child created a need to look after the boy child. Today there has been much concern about the weakening family bonds which have so far brought about the rise in the single family entities, which have had far reaching impacts on the upbringing of the YOLO generation. Unfortunately this is a generation which believes that they have to live up to their wild imaginations without any limitations. There is always the short-lived joy that comes with it but the most unfortunate thing is that this comes with far–reaching negative consequences that could greatly affect their lives. Here we aim at molding the boy holistically to become independent, responsible and respectable men since education is not all about acquisition of factual knowledge but upright moral values.
2018 marks the 9th year since the inception of the school and we have every reason to be grateful to God for this far He has brought us, the milestones have been far and wide. We begin by thanking God for the good results posted by last year’s candidates. I am proud to say that the good results mapped us at position TWO in Juja Sub- County and position SIXTEEN in the whole of Kiambu County. This was no mean feat. I personally thank the teachers for tirelessly working hard to champion the boys to such great heights. I also thank the boys for believing in themselves and also working smart to get the best. To our candidates this year, the challenge is on you to raise the bar higher and even do better than your predecessors. We believe you have the potential and you will even do better.
TO OUR DEAR PARENTS
I begin by giving many thanks to our parents for believing in us and giving us the opportunity to mould your boys and give back men who will have a stand in the society. I also call upon you to take up an active role in the upbringing of our young men as Proverbs 22:6 states "Train up a child in the way He should go: and when He is old, He will not depart from it" We hold hands in making the lives of these young men better and we will be sure of having secured the future generation.
As the year progresses we expect to develop a range of programs and activities that will extend our reach to attain mutual goals of academic excellence, as The Corner Brook School will make an endeavor to grow in a variety of ways, concentrating on career awareness, independent living skills, assistive technology, socialization skills and workplace performance.
At Corner Brook the educational community strives for excellence by preparing students for learning beyond their school years and assisting them to become lifelong learners, as well as helping them to be realistic and responsible decision makers when solving problems in our multicultural, ever-changing world. Schools and teachers must ensure that students have a society of enriching experiences. Surprisingly, these experiences develop a student's creativity and imagination and lead to something that is often thought to be more important than knowledge. Creativity and imagination make students grow up to be productive adults who then arrive as citizens of the world ready to make their own great contribution to mankind.
