The Nasir Ahmadiyaa Senior Secondary School in Basse, Upper River Region last Wednesday graduated 150 students from different fields of studies, following their completion of a 12-year long basic and secondary education.
The event, held in grand style at the school’s hall in Basse Mansajang, was graced by parents, guardians, relatives, friends and well-wishers, among others.
Addressing the graduating students, the principal of the school, Mamadi Ceesay, described the day as significant and congratulated the outgoing students for their sense of hard work, and commitment during their three-year spell at the school. While challenging them to continue the same spirit in order to be good ambassadors of the school, the principal disclosed that the alumni of the school are today serving in high positions in the government.
He attested to the outgoing students’ good conduct while at the school, saying they were very inspiring, and then advised them to continue being honest, respectful, to be obedient wherever they find themselves. He also urged them to further their education to tertiary level.
The principal’s remark also touched on the commitment of the teachers at the school, thus commending them for preparing the students well for the West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The principal education officer at Region Six, Momodou G. Jallow, congratulated the students, whilst reminding them of the daunting challenges that lie ahead of them. He urged them to make their career decisions now, and to quickly join the higher education institutions in the country for the continuation of their educational journey, in view of the fact that Grade 12 certificate is a foundation.
Jallow then advised them to be honest, respectful, and humble in whatever they do. “Be very determined if you are to achieve your goals in life,” he added. He concluded by commending the management and teachers of the school for giving quality education to the students.
Also addressing the graduating students, the regional educational director, Claudiana Cole, advised the outgoing students to be ready to face and surmount the challenges that await them after senior secondary school education. “Life in itself is full of challenges. It is a journey of challenges and every stage of life has its own challenges.
But we are cautioned that challenges are rather to be seen as privileges than obstacles, which would defer us from attaining our objectives or reaching our full potentials. Now that you are passing out from school, a moment am sure you have all been looking forward to, you will come to realise school days are the best because after it comes the challenges of taking up responsibilities, having to make important life decisions, which would make or affect your life,” she concluded.
