Murang’a County’s secondary school principals have been advised to observe professionalism and stick to the rules set out while carrying out their duties and responsibilities.

Speaking during the KESSHA Annual Conference (2024) held at REEF Hotel in Mombasa, Coast Regional TSC Director Juliet Kariuki urged the secondary school heads in the region to adhere to TSC Act and rules and regulations governing the profession to enable them to discharge their daily duties effectively.

She further advised them to ensure that teachers prepare professional documents like lesson plans and schemes of work, observing that it is unethical to operate without them.

She also warned teachers against frequent absenteeism from their schools, saying that teachers who want to be away from school should seek permission from the administration.

“Frequent absenteeism among teachers is a serious offence and the government cannot tolerate that kind of behaviour,” she explained.

She cautioned principals against misappropriation of school funds, adding that the trend has contributed to the delay of implementation of school development projects.

Turning to procurement of school items, she advised the school heads to strictly follow the procurement procedures so as to avoid audit queries.
