Secondary School, Makeni Group's story

These people are teachers of a Secondary School in Makeni. This Secondary School was established in 1962. It is one of the oldest schools in the city, and it is the only secondary school for girls in the whole city of Makeni. The school is made up of a junior secondary school and a senior secondary school. The junior school has about 800 pupils and the senior secondary school has about 500 pupils. Both the junior and senior secondary schools have 44 dedicated staff members.

This secondary school remains the first school of choice for girls in Makeni city and even beyond. The students of this school continue to make good grades in both the Basic Education Examination’s Certificate (BECE) for the Junior Secondary School and the West Africa Senior Secondary Schools Examination (WASSE). The school has contributed immensely towards the education of girls in Makeni and beyond. Many of the city’s educated women came from this school. This Secondary School also continues to triumph over other schools in terms of sports (such as volleyball and other athletics).
