The Teachers employer, TSC, has celebrated 31 teachers from across the country as it marks this year’s World Teachers’ Day.
Speaking during celebrations in Nairobi, TSC boss Dr. Nancy Macharia stated that the process of identifying the teachers that were feted was done in strict conformity to the TSC Performance Recognition, Reward and Sanction Policy Framework.
According to TSC boss, all the 31 teachers will be feted based on the rewards system outlined in this TSC policy – which stresses on meritocracy and detailed due diligence in recognising staff.
She also mourned demise of 90 teachers who succumbed to Covid-19 in the last year.
Furthermore, Dr. Macharia stated that all teachers have so far received at least the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, urging all tutors to purpose to get fully vaccinated.
“Allow me to first of all celebrate posthumously our Ninety (90) Heroes and Heroines who succumbed to COVID-19 over the last year, some of them in the middle of their tireless efforts to ensure learning in our schools was back on track,” she said.
The event was attended by education stakeholders and members of teachers unions.
