I am Wafula Samwel in form four at Highway High School. I am striving to achieve my best at the end of the year. Being a form four,life is smooth but it isn’t that smooth, you have also to go through thick and thin and always try to outsmart the others. The experience is nice for the tougher ones.

Being successful makes you happier, but also owes you sleepless nights and skipping games time to achieve it. The teachers are good but sometimes rough according to students code of behavior. While in a mistake, some may understand you and others only misunderstand you. But being morally upright and ever punctual, you find life being so smooth in this institution.

To achieve the best in my exams, I have decided on making some decisions, though some may be strenuous but for me to come out a successful student with a direct entry into University. I should abide by them.

Life at Highway is awesome; school fees had been a big barrier to my education and am forever grateful to WEMA for taking up this load.

Thank you.
Good luck in school Samuel!
