As the academic year draws to close, students across Sierra Leone are preparing to bid farewell to another successful year of learning, growth, and achievement. Throughout the year, students have faced many challenges, including the ongoing global economic hardship whose impact, especially inflation, is even more difficult in a third world country like Sierra Leone. I am pleased despite the challenges our students and staff have shown remarkable resilience and persistence in their pursuit of education. They have demonstrated commitment to their communities and the world in a way which makes me especially proud of them.
I am also very pleased to report a 98% passing rate for EduNations’ students who sat for national exams administered at the end of primary, junior secondary, and senior secondary school. This year 445 of the 454 EduNations’ students who took the exams passed either the National Primary School Exam (NPSE), the Basic Education Certificate Exam (BECE), or the West African Secondary-School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
To all our students, teachers, and staff who have worked tirelessly throughout the academic year, we extend our heartfelt congratulations and best wishes for a bright and successful future. May the lessons learned, and the memories made, serve as a foundation for a lifetime of learning, growth, and achievement.
All this success is thanks to your generous donations! Thanks to your support, EduNations is able to provide free and quality education to 3,700 students. Special thanks to the EduNations Board of Directors, US director and team, the President of EduNations and local team and more especially our proud donors and sponsors. We say “TENKI!”\
