He urged teachers to encourage pupils to use the school library to study and conduct research.” This is not the first time the school has benefited from such donations as GOSA has contributed immensely and in diverse ways to the advancement of the school. This latest development is a sterling example others must emulate,” Mohamed Bundu asserted.


GOSA Treasurer, Alieu Jah gave a brief background of the association established in 1996. he said its aim is for old students to contribute to the development of the school and the pupils, while saying “we are the foundation pupils of this school established in 1990.”


President of GOSA, Rashid G. Dainkeh, who introduced members of his association, lauded stakeholders for their efforts to lift the school to higher heights. He pledged the association’s continued support and cautioned the pupils, especially girls, to be focused on their education by putting premium on their studies. He underlined the importance of education by saying “with education, the sky is your limit therefore, be friendly with your books. We succeeded in this gesture because we are educated.”


Principal of GSS, M.H. Turay, acclaimed GOSA and the Sierra Leone Library Board for the gift and assured that the books would be judiciously utilized for their intended purpose, as he reiterated that teachers would ensure that pupils become familiar with the use of the library.
