As ASC helps to support a secondary student’s education (Auzelia, photo below), you might be interested in reading a report from one of its former students (now attending university in engineering) about a visit to the school during its graduation ceremony.
The big issue is that: we had a very wonderful day on 28-29 at Farkwa!! It was really nice. I called up my team ( THE FFKF X-STUDENTS) to go there as normal. Then we contributed for some of them who were so far and had no money for their transfer. The event on 28/10 was graduation for Form Four. […]
We were greatly welcomed by the Headmaster and the whole school. They gave us a chance to talk to the mass, we introduced ourselves and everyone of us had something to speak to the students on the mass of graduation. Then we had our main speaker who represented the whole aim of why we went there, he was Hamisi S. Salum. The speech seems to impress all the parents who were there, Form Five students too, and the whole students were happy of the speech (the speech have been kept in our records as a memory, I’ll ask Stella to send to you if u will need to see it!). He finally talk about our plans and strategies which seems to touch some of the government leaders, who encouraged us to press on because of how we change students thinking and attitudes…….
Many of Form Five students came to us and appreciated the school, because they thought the school had never produced university students, they felt encouraged to keep on, they said. This was when me and Hamisi said where we are, studying bachelor in engineering and Samweli with Andrew are joining university this November. Also they were so happy to see Hawa as a x-student girl who went to encourage them. After all things were done we had some pictures with some students including Form Five students. Then we had a small meeting with Mr. Patric, he extremely appreciated and he gave us some advice to make our community as an organization known by government. Then we stayed until the next day to talk to Form Four who have the national exam on 2/11 (today) and Form Three who are still coming to their last year.
After there we returned to our places….! I have attached some pics you can have a little view. A little rain is falling here in Dar es Salaam and some coastal area, but also the environment is a bit hot. But in Dodoma is so dry, sun is shining everyday!. I’ll be getting back to college on 9/11 for the other semester
Wishing you a nice day, kindly receive regards from my fellows.
