K-School produces human resources for national development
One school that has contributed immensely towards the development of this nation is the Government Secondary School, Kenema popularly known as K–School. The school recently held its 61st annual anniversary celebration in grand style at Kenema, in the eastern region of Sierra Leone.
The school’s celebration ended with a special thanksgiving service and a march past led by the brass bands of eleven schools with the K-School leading as they marched along the major streets of Kenema including Coker-Jah Street, Koroma Street, and Hanga Road.
During the Speech Day and Prize Giving ceremony held at the school’s compound the Chairman, Board of Governors, Mr. Ibrahim Sahr Kamara, said the school has made a lot of positive strides over the years which has made all past and present pupils to be proud of their school.
He said the school has made significant contributions to the human resource development as evident in most of the private and public sectors of the country, citing the Guest Speaker of the occasion, the Senior Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Works, Housing and Infrastructure, Mr. Augustine Sahr Sheku and a host of others holding senior positions in government.
He said he was sure that the presence of such personalities will inspire the pupils to work hard so that they too will become successful and prominent citizens.
He said the Board was very concerned with the indiscipline, mischief making, poor academic performance, extensive encroachment, the appalling state of the boarding home and the unapproved teachers that the school has.
Mr. Kamara thanked all those that have supported the school especially the CTA/PTA towards the development of the school. He reminded the parents and guardians of their sacred responsibilities in the upbringing of their children.
“As parents you should be committed in meeting the needs of your children in school. You should equally assist the Teachers in checking on the attendance and progress of your children in school and you must endaevour at all times to participate and even contribute financially to school activities, such as the speech day and prize- giving, games and sports, etc.,” he stressed.
He thanked the executive and members of Kenema Old Students Association (KOSA) for their support and cooperation towards the success of the school.
