Speaking at the ceremony principal of the school Lamin Darboe urged the outgoing students to take their education seriously as what they went through is just the basic. Mr Darboe also highlighted the high teacher attrition rate in the school which he said is challenging and need to be address by looking into the condition of the teachers. “Ten teachers left the profession to venture into other job such as, police, army and journalism. A teacher of the school has also left to join the illegal migration to Italy for greener pastures,” he reported.
According to Mr Darboe, the school has registered academic success over the years but faces challenges such as the lack of a library, technical department, staff room and proper toilet facilities. He urged all to support the school in order to address their challenges.
Madam Antoinette Corr-Jack, secretary general of the Gambia Teachers Union advised the outgoing students to be more serious as the tasks that lies ahead of them in the high school is greater. She called on the parents to shoulder their responsibilities by making sure their children study their books in order to be successful people in the future.
