Outgoing Headmistress Donates to Sanchaba LBS
Friday, December 30, 2011
Isatou Joof-Gagigo, the outgoing headmistress of Sanchaba Sulay Jobe Lower Basic School, has on Thursday, December 22nd, donated a new golf car to Sanchaba Sulay Jobe Lower Basic School.
The donation was made during a farewell ceremony held for her in the school, as she was set for her retirement at the end of this year.
Speaking to this reporter, Isatou Joof-Gagigo, said the car was donated to her by the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), the staff and the community in appreciation of her efforts in transforming Sanchaba Sulay Jobe Lower Basic School during the past nine years.
“Sanchaba has ever been my baby since I stepped into that school. I was very happy during the send off party because everyone was delighted with my achievements in that school.
“I have done almost 98% of what I wanted to do in Sanchaba LBS. I was able to build a modern Library, a modern computer lab with 20 computers and a projector, I provided a school feeding programme, sponsorship for many students, fence for the school, among other development projects,” she revealed.
According to her, during her time in Sanchaba, her personal car used to do all the transportation services of the school, adding that it is because the school lacks a vehicle, and she decided to donate the car back to the school.
“I decided to donate the car to the school because during my time my car used to do all the services of the school, even if a child is sick, my car will be used to take him/her to the hospital.
“As I am now leaving, my car will not be available to do all the jobs it used to do in the school. It has always been my intention to get Sanchaba LBS a car and that is why when I received this car, I was very happy and I had to turn around immediately and donate it to the school from the bottom of my heart.
“Though it was a surprise to them but it has always been my intention to help the school with a car,” she explained.
She then thanked the staff, PTA, students, donors and sponsors of school and community for their support during her time.
