Student Saedia Talke on her part said that she was forced to live in Ghinda separated from her parents in order to continue her education and that with the upgrading of the school she has been able to stay with her parents and continue her education without difficulty.
From parents, Ms. Sa'adia Ali and Ms. Hawa Idris commended the effort conducted to enable their children continue schooling staying at home with their parents.
Mr. Abraham Gebrekristos, director of the school, indicated that it was very challenging for students and especially for the females to continue education separated from their parents and that many were forced to quit education due to lack of junior school and to date the problem is solved.
