Flora Mulatya, the chief principal of The Kenya High School, has been elevated to the position of education attaché to Australia.
Mrs. Mulatya informed The Nation that she had been moved from the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to the Public Service Commission in anticipation of her departure for Australia “as soon as possible” as the education attaché.
One of the nation’s consistently top-performing schools is the Kenya High School. According to Mrs. Mulatya’s statement to The newsroom, she handed over management of the school to Ms. Irene Omangi, her deputy, yesterday (Monday). Ms. Omangi will lead the school until the new chief principal Virginia Wahome assumes control.
Bishop Gatimu Ngandu Girls High School’s chief principal at the moment is Mrs. Wahome. Mrs. Mulatya, a teacher at Kenya High since 2016, called her time there “memorable.”
“I’m glad, but I’ll miss the staff and my daughters. Working with the girls and witnessing their success was enjoyable. It was wonderful for me to have an impact on their lives. But there comes a point when we must adopt a new perspective on the world and still use education to touch people, said Mrs. Mulatya.
She served as the head of Machakos Girls High School, Mbooni Girls High School, Good Shepherd Secondary, and Kitise Secondary Schools prior to her transfer to Kenya High. President William Ruto presented her with the Moran of the Burning Spear last month, and former President Uhuru Kenyatta gave her the Order of the Golden Warrior in 2018 in recognition of her outstanding achievements in education.
