Mrs Jacklyne Amwayi Adero – Principal Vanessa Grant Girls’ School.
I am pleased to announce that the Governors and Trustees of the VGGS have completed the search for the new Principal and I can now introduce you to Mrs Jacklyne Amwayi Adero. Jacklyne has been serving as Deputy Principal at Kisaruni Girls’ High School. This is a WE.ORG/Free The Children high school whose main mission is to empower youths, by giving leadership training and opportunities through education, so as to effect change in the society. She joined the organization as a classroom teacher in the year 2013 and later transitioned into the role of School Deputy Principal, with
specific responsibility for developing the school’s pastoral and academic programmes.
She has been in charge of discipline and takes particular pride in the guiding and counselling, mentorship and empowerment roles that this requires. She has taken on the key responsibility of being Patron to the Christian Union and was thrilled to hear that the VGGS has a chaplain and she is looking forward to working with Revd. Sarah. In addition to her B.Ed. Arts degree in Kiswahili and CRE, she has just undertaken a professional qualification in Human Resource Management at the Kenya Institute of Management.
She is a KNEC qualified examiner and has also achieved consistently exceptional grades for her students at KCSE in CRE.
She has attended workshops on “Leadership and Empowerment”, “Maximizing Learning for a Diversity of Learners” and “Differentiated Instructional Methods for Maximizing Learning and How to use the Active Learning Framework to Maximize and Assess Learning”.
This background and her impressive interview convinced the panel that she has the vision to take the school forward from its current strong position thanks to the excellent job done by Mrs Mwaniki. We look forward to having Jacklyne on board as a transformational leader. Jacklyne will join the VGGS from 1st December 2019 to give time for a professional induction programme and to become familiar with the systems in place at the school to ensure as smooth as possible a transition.
Finally, as always, I would like to thank you all for your continued support of the Vanessa Grant Girl’s School.
Trustee and Chairman Board of Management.
