Sameta High School Chief Principal Peter Muguia. He wants his school to relate the environment to academic excellence.

Sameta Boys High School in Kisii County has started a massive environmental conservation campaign by encouraging everyone in the school to relate academic performance to environmental wellness.

Speaking to teachers and students at the school during the launch of internal departmental syllabus coverage strategic plan, the Chief Principal Peter Muguia said a clean environment is a mind therapy that leads to intense concentration for deep comprehension of pedagogical concepts.

He unveiled his vision of increasing forest cover in the school by leading each teacher and student to plant 10 trees per year, starting with the planting of 500 trees tomorrow.

He said the tree planting exercise is an early preparation for the World Environment Day Celebrations on 5th of next month.

“We have assembled a variety of tree seedlings that will be planted tomorrow by everyone in the school,” he said, lauding the Science Department for spearheading the tree planting exercise and asked other departments to follow that example.

The unique approach of the school aims to have everyone in the community plant ten trees each year.

Saying that the school has enough space for planting more trees, he asked teachers, support staff and school prefects to work as a team and come out with elaborate activities that will also improve their food security.

He encouraged clubs and societies to be advocates of environmental conservation by resolving immediate problems like garbage collection.

Emphasizing on discipline as being a prerequisite to success, he told students to take care of indigenous trees on the compound because they are more eco-friendly.

The school launched a tree nursery that will ensure continuous and sustainable supply of seedlings to benefit also the community around.
