Over sixty teachers drawn from thirty Lower Basic Schools in clusters 5, 6 and 11 of Region One in KMC, recently attended a daylong workshop on National Assessment Test (NAT) Results Analysis.

The cluster monitor for the said clusters, Mr. Buba Jarjue welcomed the participants to the workshop, and urged them to make the best use of the knowledge gained from the workshop, adding that all what is learnt must be properly utilised.

He called on the school heads in his clusters to be cooperative in their strive to develop their schools, noting that without co-operation they cannot go anywhere.

Mr. Jarjue informed the school heads and their teachers that the visit by the last Coordinating Committee Meeting (CCM) officials in Region One schools was rated 97%.

For her part, VSO's Ms. Mariama Cham urged the participants to know how to analyse both the NAT and their school internal results. She said the analysis of the NAT results will help school heads and their teachers to know where to adjust themselves.

She appealed to them to spread the knowledge gained to their fellow teachers who have not got the opportunity to be part of the workshop.

The workshop, Ms. Cham, expressed will alert the teachers where to do better and what's going to be the focus of students' classes.

The Headmistresses of Bakoteh Annex and Proper Lower Basic Schools, Mrs. Mam Fatou Sowe and Mrs. Fatou Chow, respectively both expressed confidence that the workshop would go a long way in building up their capacities. The two Headmistresses called for the formation of the Cluster Schools Association so as to have easy networking of the schools within the same cluster.
