Students of the St. Augustine Episcopal Mission School in Kakata City, Margibi County have vowed to win two hundred thousand Liberian dollars (L$200,000) promised them by the Country Director of Search for Common Ground/Talking Drum Studio.
Mr. Joseph Sankaituah on his official Facebook page on Thursday, September 9, 2021, challenged the students that if they make a 100% pass in the West African Secondary School Certificate Exams (WASSCE) the amount will be offered.
“The national exam starts tomorrow. I am challenging the St. Augustine’s Episcopal Mission School, Senior class, in Kakata that if they have a 100% pass, they will get LRD200,000 from me. This will be a repeat of the class that I managed 21 years ago. That is your challenge starting tomorrow and I am confident you can do it. Good luck!” Mr. Sankaituah said.
The president and speaker of the school’s student council government confidently told this paper that every senior student representing the school will make a successful pass in the exams.
Students Genevie Roberts and Odarty Blackie stated that their hopes lie in Christ Jesus and their administration who adequately prepared them to face the exams.
According to them, they covered all of the subject matters thereby putting them in the position to make a successful pass.
Genevie and Odarty indicated that students of the school who are writing the exams went through extra classes and they’ve been reading some materials in preparing them for the public exams.
They retrospect that the school has always been the best and that they are sure of maintaining it adding that they will collect the $200,000 when the results shall have been announced by WAEC.
“As for the money, we have won it already because St. Augustine is the talk about in this area” the president pointed out.
The two students meanwhile encouraged their colleagues across the country to do away with fear and focus on the exams.
More than a hundred senior students from the St. Augustine Episcopal Mission School are said to be writing the exams.
It can be recalled that senior students across the country embarked on the process of writing the exams on Friday, September 10, 2021, with Biology being the first subject.
