600 pupils go back to school
Pujehun, September 28 (SLENA): The United Brethren in-Christ (UBC) – Sierra Leone Conference has provided food, drinks and other psycho-social needs for six hundred pupils after successfully completing a four-week free holiday school at the District Education Council (DEC) Primary school campus in Pujehun.
The first free educational activity, according to the Superintendent of Evangelism and Church Planting of UBC, the Rt. Rev. Peter Baggi Kaiwo, was organized in concert with the Christin Council in Pujehun, benefiting pupils from Class One to JSS3 schools in the Pujehun township.
Rev. Kaiwo told SLENA that the primary objective behind the summer school was to encourage children’s education, support the girl child to continue her education and to spread the UBC evangelism programme through educational activities.
He said the just concluded summer school programme has helped to reduce the holiday burden on parents, adding that during the summer school pupils were supplied pens, pencils, foot rules, exercise books and text books including games and sporting items.
Rev. Kaiwo said nineteen teaching staff participated in the summer school, including a UK volunteer, Yvonne Weigbe. Two teachers from Freetown and five from Bo city were among the 19 teachers, the rest from Pujehun town.
