Aji Sukai Ndateh Memorial Senior Secondary School situated at Mile 7 recently held a graduation ceremony for its Grade 12 students at the school premises.
School Principal Haddy Jammeh, in bidding farewell to the final year students, said it is customary to gather and pray for the students, rejoice and advise them about their future, saying they should also be aware that the institution is their alma-mater.
According to her, through their stay in the school, they had undergone numerous encounters which had contributed a lot to shaping their lives for now and posterity.
This was also a day the establishment should share with stakeholders in terms of its achievements, constraints and plans.
In extracurricular activities, she disclosed, the school’s debate team came out first in an inter-school debate against Methodist Academy.
On the academic front, she noted, the school registered success in the WASSCE results.
Mrs Jammeh indicated that the school, as a standard institution, had set objectives that were being fulfilled by the board of governors, the administration and the staff as one body.
She said having registered students has become a trend in the school for the 3-year senior secondary school course, providing them with knowledge that would enable some of the students to gain entry to higher institutions of learning and to equip them with skills for meaningful self-employment.
“This will help them contribute meaningfully to the socio-economic development of the country,” she said.
She noted that to sustaining their achievements, the school had to adopt new policies to maximize output.
She lamented the issue of indiscipline among students as a challenge for her administration and the need for additional infrastructure in the school.
She also expressed the need to equip the science and computer laboratories of the school.
The school principal thanked all their sponsors and collaborators for their efforts while urging graduands to learn to be disciplined and hardworking.
