A total of 64 students were awarded certificates of recognition amid the new tradition dubbed “Principal’s roll of honour” organized by the University of Rwanda-College of Education to acknowledge students’ excellent performance during the 1st semester of academic year 2014-2015. The new move came as a significant boost to the College’s students given that it will spur positive competition among students and hence contribute to quality education.
In his remarks, Prof. George Njoroge, the College’s Principal who presided over the ceremony congratulated the award winners along with the lecturers and urged the rest of students to roll up their sleeves in a bid to gain skills that will propel the development of the community. Njoroge also encouraged students to continue working hard and explore all the possibilities available.

“You cannot sit and wish to have food and you think you are going to have it” said the Principal adding that the world is always unkind to those people who think they can sit and achieve.
The criteria for selecting students to appear on the Principal’s roll of honour stipulates that a student must score not less than 60% in each module at first sitting. Besides, the same students must have a cumulative semester average of at least 75%. UR-CE shall continue awarding the best performers to reaffirm its willingness to recognize hard working students. The roll of honour will also be displayed on the College’s website.
