KK urges parents to invest in Children’s education

President Kenneth Kaunda

FORMER President Kenneth Kaunda has urged parents in the country to invest in the education of their children and help them to be influential people in future.
Dr Kaunda said during the pre-independence celebrations at Cbeebies Academy in Lusaka yesterday that it is the responsibility of parents to adequately prepare their children by helping them with school work.
“I also understand that in greater global competition in a knowledge-based economy, a great education is more important than ever. Education is the best investment you can make in your future. That’s the best investment you can ever give to your child,” he said.
He said parents should work hard to ensure that their children attain quality education.
Dr Kaunda also said children should equally set their own goals in education and work hard to attain them.
He said Government will do everything possible to make young people attain the quality education they need to have a brighter future.
“It is also your Government’s responsibility for setting high standards, supporting teachers…and turning around schools that are not giving students the opportunities they deserve,” he said.
Dr Kaunda said as children grow up, they should follow the guidance from their teachers, parents and elderly people in society.
Speaking at the same function, Cbeebies Academy director Annie Kampamba said school administrators are working hard to reduce poor education standards in the country by offering quality education.
She said support from teachers and parents have helped the school to offer quality school programmes and facilities to the pupils.
“Our vision as a school is to offer tireless efforts and support in pursuing the interests of our learners, for continuity of our freedom fighters’ dream,” she said.
And one of the parents, Donna Muleba, urged teachers at the school to continue inspiring pupils by giving them a great educational foundation.
