SBEC holds annual prize giving-ceremony


By Ebrima Jallow SBEC International Arabic School recently orgnised its 3rd annual speech and prize-giving ceremony to award outstanding students in academia, sports and exemplary behaviour. The colourful program, attracting hundreds of well-wishers and parents, was held under the theme ‘seeking knowledge, a must for every Muslim.’ “Seeking knowledge is compulsory for every male and female Muslim and we generally tend to believe knowledge is for only male particularly when it comes to religious knowledge,” Ayesha Njie-Nyang, director of SBEC International said. She added: “The speech and prize given ceremony is the most important event of every academic year. This is a day that has been dedicated to celebrate the successes of students through the academic year. It is a day that has also been set aside not just for those that are performing but for those that are making the effort to do their best because not all kids are top performers. There are kids that are good in sports, academics and kids that are just selfless, they are not good in neither academics nor sports.” She advised them to inculcate a reading culture, since reading has been a problem that cuts across our education system. Abubacarr Kebba Darboe, head of SBEC International Arabic School, said the speech and prize given encourages students to work hard and do well in school.]]>
