NBGS merges candidates over poor performance

Author : | Published: Wednesday, August 19, 2015

Candidates in four primary schools in Northern Bahr al-Ghazal State will be merged due to poor performance in last year’s national examinations.

State Minister of Education Valentino Achak Deng says the 435 candidates will now be attending their classes at Santo Ayang Upper Primary School in Aweil.

The state performed poorly in the primary school exams last year.

Mr Achak told Eye Radio that this year’s candidates will be taught at one place to also solve the issue of shortage of teachers.

The affected schools are Ariathdit Primary School, Apay Goi Primary School, Aweil al Medina Boys Primary School and Salva Kiir Primary School.

“They will be taught by 11 teachers provided by the Ministry of Education, and there will be a committee to supervise their teaching in the next three month,” reported Eye Radio’s Abraham Agoth.

It’s believed that the teachers will now be enough to teach the children better than when they were spread out across different schools.

In an attempt to encourage the learners, the state education ministry will ensure that meals – breakfast and lunch – are provided at the center, according to Agoth.
