Nusrat Senior Secondary School has been known for its academic excellence since inception in 1971 but for the first time in the history of the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE), the School produced a student securing an A in all nine subjects.
Abdourahman Bah, a Science student secured first in the entire country with a distinction in all subjects. Muhammed Boye Jallow, another student of the School also secured a distinction in eight subjects and a B in one.
Speaking in an Observer Light interview, Karamo S. Bojang, the School’s Principal expressed delight with the result. He said the result gave credit to him in two ways; one is that it gives pride to the nation in general and second because since the inception of WASSCE, it has always been the dream of Nusrat to get a distinction in nine subjects.
Bojang disclosed that the School has already made arrangements for Jallow to be sponsored through his university education in any school of his choice.
Urging all students to study hard, Bojang disclosed that he also will fulfill the promise he made some years ago when he asserted that he would retire anytime the School secured nine A’s in the WASSCE.
“Finally, I have my box opened packing for a final goodbye; I am going to miss the students a lot but I have to go,” he concluded.
