2018 has been a wonderful year for AME so far. We are excited to update you all on our achievements, and would like to extend our warmest thanks to all of our supporters for their continued support.
In July our third year students became the first to sit the National WAEC leavers exams, and results have been fantastic – even better than we could have hoped for, with 70% passing all the exams they sat, and many qualifying to go onto study at University. An astonishing outcome for a rural school such as ours, sitting its first national exams and we could not be happier.
From myself and all of those at Wioso SHS, a huge thank-you to our supporters who have made this possible.
The challenge for us now is to not rest on our laurels, and to push on with the development of additional classroom infrastructure and a Science Lab and ICT suite. We will have further demands for utilities as we grow and must expand both the solar provision and the water supply with additional boreholes.
Moving into 2019, we will also require a boarding facility as those students from the more rural areas often cannot walk to school each day as distance/weather prevents it. As a result the provision of a boarding facility will allow us to specifically benefit the very poorest students. This addition, planned for the next two years, will also in itself present challenges as we move more into the area of care and support. This will require experts in the field of child support and additional staff investment to support students 24 hours a day and provide a safe environment for them.
