Executive Director of the Campaign for Good Governance (CGG) and the Chairperson of National Elections Watch (NEW) Marcella Samba Sesay has said the introduction of the Free Quality School Education (FQSE) in 2018 has refocused and recalibrated the hearts and minds of Sierra Leoneans to the importance and value of Education.

“Thanks Your Excellency Julius Maada Bio for this inspiration. At a personal level and a student and practitioner of governance and politics all my life, the greatest achievement of the FQSE launched in 2018 and coincided with this vision (returning the school to single shift), is the level of awareness on the value of education refocusing and recalibrating the hearts and minds of Sierra Leoneans to the importance and value of education that has been in sharp decline and on the road to nothingness which many political analysts call decadence,” she said.

Explaining the purpose of the gathering a senior ex-pupil of the school, Professor Miriam Conteh-Morgan, said in October 2020 they laid the foundation for the construction of this beautiful edifice, noting that notwithstanding the challenges of accessing funds, there were high hopes for the project to be completed.

She said the initiative for the construction of the building was to synchronise the two shifts system to one quality education shift system.

Proprietors of the school, His Grace the Archbishop Edward Tamba Charles, said they were grateful to His Excellency the President and the First Lady for making time out of their busy schedules to open the building, adding that it showed commitment to education.

He also commended the ex-pupils of various chapters for their commitment to ensuring that their collective dream was realised.
