Serious studying is ongoing as pupils prepare for their midterm exams. All children from P.1-P.6 are seriously preparing for their midterm exams which will be sat for next week. The teachers are seriously revising with them.

Similarly, the P.7 candidates are also well prepared as they are drawing near their PLE Exams. These candidates have less than ten days to sit for their exams and according to an interview I had with them, they said they are more than ready for PLE since they have been writing different papers every after two days.

The IT department of Gombe Junior School has been empowered with more computers. These were put in classrooms for teachers’ use when setting work for children. This has eased the work of the secretary as most of the work is typed by teachers themselves and only taken to the secretary for printing. Similarly, the IT manager was given a brand new computer with a very large screen to replace the one she has been using. Appreciation goes to the Directors for the support given to the IT department.



Tendo Vianne celebrated his birthday here at school with all his classmates together with his mother and auntie. The party was organized at the assembly ground and it was indeed colourful.

Pupils who will not have attained the required promotional aggregates will be made to repeat that class or try elsewhere.

As a way of giving courage to outstanding learners, the names, photographs and positions of the first five best performers in the recently done, End of September Exams in each class were pinned on the school notice board and all classrooms.

The recent results show that the P.7 team is doing a commendable job to put our school among the National Top Schools.

Teachers scored all the goals in the 1st half which frustrated the builders to the extent of hiring mercenaries to play for them in the second half. The mercenaries struggled until they equalized in the 89th minute. Just as the match was about to end in the last minute, one of the strikers from the builders’ side flooked and scored the 5th goal for them. This even prompted the referee to blow the last whistle after seeing the teachers more than serious to defeat them. The match was generally competitive and entertaining.

Local food, snacks and drinks were available and a lot of children were seen gulping large chunks of food in their mouths, as the food seemed very delicious. Children who were not visited were seen shedding tears but were consoled with teachers and administrators who later gave them food and drinks to enjoy together with their colleagues.

The second item on the agenda was to read out the names of those who were best per subject and per class. This was followed by announcing the best five and the last five pupils in each assembly. Then after, the names of those in the 4s club were also announced for recognition. This assembly caused tension amongst pupils and some of them cried for not being amongst the best and others cried for being read amongst the last pupils.
