Senior Principal of Nyakach Girls Millicent Alaka

The Senior Principal of Nyakach Girls Millicent Alaka has announced special remedial classes for Junior Starlets players who were participating in the Under-17 Women’s World Cup qualifiers which Kenya outscored Burundi by an aggregate of 5-0 booking the spot to represent the country for the very first time in the tournament.

Alaka, while speaking at the school premises over the weekend, revealed that the school has arranged to enrol the four players from the institution, who are part of the Junior Starlets, into remedial classes once they return from the national team duty.

“Upon returning to school, they will have remedial programmes under supervision and will also have additional hours in a day to catch up,” she stated.

She revealed that the four participants missed a significant portion of the second term due to their commitment to representing the national team and the school is committed to ensure that they recover the time lost so that they can be of the same level with the rest of their colleagues.
