During a visit to the school, the media notice that the level of optimism among the students and staff of the institution is very high.
According to teachers, everything is going on well. “Despite the COVID-19 scare in the country, I must say that lessons are going well. Barriers measures are been respected here to the later and students are been caution day in, day out,” a teacher said.
To others, “We are trying to make sure that we finished what we were supposed to cover in this first term. You are aware that schools started in October instead of September and that was a big challenge for us. Children are responding positively and I think we will be the best this year again.”
Students on their part said, despite the late beginning and the COVID-19 health pandemic, they are also trying to understand the situation.
According to them, they are working very hard using all available time at their disposal to make sure that they study.
We are doing our best to make sure that we make the school happy, our parents and ourselves. It is not easy given that the school year started in October and adding to the pandemic that is ravaging the whole. We are respecting all barriers measures and then studying hard. Any little time that we have, we are making sure that we are ready and studying,” an Upper sixth student said.
Schools in Cameroon are supposed to go for the first term break in the coming days.
