A consignment of laboratory equipment and materials, as well as two newly constructed toilets and a water tower valued at over US$30,000 have been turned over to the administration of the St. Peter’s Claver High School in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County by the Alumni Association in the Americas.

The laboratory equipment and facilities including 20 microscopes, a projector, re-agents, science books as well as the construction of the modern toilets and water tower, were undertaken by the school’s Alumni Association in the U.S. as its contribution to enhance the learning conditions at St. Peter’s Claver.

At the dedication ceremony held on Saturday in Buchanan, the president of the Alumni Association in the Americas, Daniel Kieh, said the project was intended to show appreciation for the level of improvement in learning at the school.

Kieh said with the introduction of the West Africa Senior School Certificate Exams, they hope that the donated laboratory materials will further help to better prepare the students for their science examinations.

The Alumni Association also pledged scholarships and other support to deserving students and the school. Sixteen students from St. Peter’s Claver were among the top performers in the country in the 2016-2017 West African Examinations Council test. St. Peter’s achieved the highest mark in the 2017 WAEC Junior High Exams and was second in the Senior High level in the country.

In separate remarks, a senior member of the Alumni Association in the Americas, Hassan Tall, said the school’s accomplishments have energized the association to do more and urged other students to follow in the footsteps of their fellow top achievers.

He urged the top achievers not to be complacent with what they have accomplished, but should instead see it as a challenge to push themselves even harder to acquire their career objectives.

The school’s administrator, Sister Grace Boro, expressed appreciation to the Alumni Association for its continued support to the school. She said the materials donated and the facilities constructed will help to raise the standard of learning at St. Peter’s.

She recalled that over the years the Alumni Association has been what she called “a blessing” to the school; and through their support, the school and its students have benefited a lot. She urged the students to live up to the challenge by studying harder and make high grades that will attract more assistance from the Alumni and other people of goodwill.

  1. With the win of George weah, it is important to put partisan bickering aside and structure an inclusive government of professionals from all sides of the political aisle to steer our beloveth mother land in a completely new direction. Institute the rule of law that is unparalleled, a governing system that is robust to fight the perversion of corrupt practices.set a realistic economic agenda from the onset that is pro-growth and intended to ease the catastrophe of youth’s unemployment. In order to build on some of the fundamental gains of the Ellen’s administration, we need to unearth some of the noble ideas that were put forth by her administration, but that she was unable to implement because of political expediency and proactively implement them. In her first term, she declared corruption as public enemy number one, but she failed flatly from carried out the wishes of the people when she allowed the epidermic of corruption to flourish during her entire two terms. The current administration needs to put her “feet to ground” to ensure that corruption is made minimal if not eliminated completely. Liberia Economic resurgence require an investment in Agribusiness, a pro Liberian- owned business agenda, and robust management of the country natural resources. Investment in the educational system is very important and will serve as catalyst for long term GDP growth. Building a health system that is resilient enough to withstand another infectious disease outbreak is key to our national economic resurgency. Infusion of all the talents of Liberians living abroad and those at home is a good starting point in bringing about an inclusive system that incorporates various ideals and that is strategically pro-growth.
