Four students of the Insight Training Centre have recently constructed and presented a replica of the St. Therese's parish compound to the congregation on Sunday during mass.

According to Augustine Manneh, a lecturer at Insight Training Centre, four of their students doing construction in the persons of Tony Mendy, Marie Therese Jatta, Mohamed Bittaye & Mafugi Hydara, sat together to formulate and construct the St. Therese's Church, the memorial hall, the bell tower, the presbytery and the vicinity of the compound.

Augustine Manneh, their lecturer says, "The idea of constructing a sample or replica St. Therese campus, was born from curiosity and creativity. We are doing construction at Insight, to further prove how well we are vast into the art of construction, we decided to put it into practice and this is the ultimate result," he said. Tony Mendy of the Insight Training Centre said, it was a joy creating the replica. "We had discussed our idea with Rev. Fr. Tony Sonko who allowed us to go ahead and we started from there," he said.

The students are optimistic that they will do more and they will surprise many in the near future with their creativity. "We offer a lot of thrilling courses." Say Mr. Manneh, their lecturer.
