Testimonials

School Captain at Alliance Boys High School

"His Principle then, Mr. Maneno says he appointed him School Captain because of his high level of maturity. “He was there always when needed, had good rapport with both students and teachers. He was trusted by both students and teachers and all other staff. He was not pushy, or bully and he got along with others working round him. I felt he was the ideal leader in a school like Alliance with students from different backgrounds and who were in need of a mentor. He matched the expectation of the Alliance leadership. He performed his duties very well as school captain.”" -
