Tufaie Foundation Revamps Activities

first_imgThe Tufaie Foundation Child Care and Middle School located in Ganta has stepped up its services by procuring a brand new school bus to meet the transportation needs of its students.The proprietor of the school, Benedict Domah, told the Daily Observer that the school decided to purchase a bus owing to the serious difficulty the students encounter in reaching the campus on time each morning.He added that many of the students are between the ages of three and 15 years, and for them to be riding commercial motorcycles to school poses danger to their lives, as well as constrains them to leave the campus late after school hours.Mr. Domah said in order for the students to be adequately prepared academically, the school is using a Ghanaian curriculum as a reference guide to the Liberian curriculum and ensuring that full attention is given them in their lessons.Tufaie Foundation is among the leading toddler schools in Ganta, where most of the business people send their children to acquire quality education.During a visit to the campus by this reporter, it was discovered that many of the first graders who are ages four to six, have developed good writing skills, while many of the seventh and eighth graders are at the ages of 13 and 14.The older students, Mr. Domah said, are taken on a field trip every semester to see for themselves some of the historical sites such as mounts Nimba and Tokadeh and the Kpatawee Water Fall in Suakoko, Bong County because these are some of the places that are discussed in their social studies class.While the government is yet to provide subsidy to the school, Mr. Domah praised GoL for recently training and providing incentives for their teachers.The incentive was part of money the government allotted for private school teachers under the reference, “Ebola money.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
