|Mabinty, in class 4, will be able to sit the exams under |
EducAid Maronka when she gets to the top of the school.
Recently, we have had to get some further EducAid sites registered. My heart sank at the likely game playing and time wasting I was to face. I did waste 1 year hoping that the then Deputy Director of Education for Port Loko was doing what he promised but..........
However, I was given the opportunity, in September, to meet the First Lady of Sierra Leone, Mrs Sia Koroma, when she was travelling through Lungi when I was there meeting somebody and she told me to come back and meet her in her office so she could help me. She has! Her little note to the Minister has opened the doors of the ministry and within 1 month of completing our application forms for the registration Rolal Senior Secondary School, Rogbere Junior Secondary School and Maronka Primary School are all registered and have their official legal exam centre status. The kids will be able to take public exams under their own centres and not be removed to another part of the country.
What an enormous relief!
