Students Of The Boima K. Corneh Foundation International School Parading During Its Second Gala Anniversary Recently
Student Alfred David of the Boima K. Corneh Foundation International School said through these activities, other students who are not academically good enough would be able showcase their talents in other areas.
The Boima K. Corneh Foundation International School is situated in the Daquee Town Community, Lower New Georgia, in the Township of Gardinersville, outside Monrovia.
David was speaking recently at ceremony marking the school’s second gala day celebration.
“I want to use this time to call on the Government of Liberia to consider some extra curricula activities within our schools. This is important, because it would help other students, who are not academically sharp to showcase their talents. This is good because the future holds many other good things other than just academia. Some of these students too, are also good in other places. For instance, the activities we are having here today are good for the learning process,” said the young Liberian student.
The second gala anniversary celebration of the Boima K. Corneh Foundation International School was celebrated in grand style with students of the institution marching through the principle street of the Somalia Drive Road and the Daquee Town Community.
“Let the schools also make sure to see to it that every student shows their talents or gift, just to see who they become in future. If these things are placed into our activities, some of their friends will have the anxiety to go to school, because they too have a role to play in society,” he stated.
David, 13, noted that there is no easy way to success, and as such, Liberian students must do all they can if they are to be successful tomorrow.
“Before gold can be used, it has to be purified by fire,” he among other things added.
