We are excited to announce that work will soon start on a new Science Lab at All Saints Catholic College Bayelle in Bamenda, NW Region.
All Saints College was created in 2019 in response to many requests from parents of children who had attended other secondary schools in the region which had been closed because of the war. These families had been forced to relocate from the more remote parts of the war-torn NW region to the relative safety of Bamenda in the hope of finding places for their children at the few functioning secondary schools in this city.
The current pupil enrolment at All Saints is 695 and the school has 44 teachers as well as other admin staff. The PTA and the church together have managed to construct 16 rudimentary classrooms for the different year groups and specialities (Arts, Science and Commercial) but they have not been able to provide a science lab, meaning that all the students who are studying science subjects are unable to undertake the essential practical work for their O and A level exams. The school has attempted to improvise a lab and has borrowed a few pieces of equipment from other schools but it is woefully inadequate.
Thanks to our generous supporters at Gompels Healthcare, we are able to fund the refurbishment of the makeshift lab and provide benches, sinks and all the necessary equipment for students to be able to study Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Geology to A level. We shall also be funding the provision of handwashing facilities for the school latrines to help combat the spread of COVID19 and Cholera at the school. We hope this new lab will be ready to open when the new school year starts in September.
We wish all the pupils at All Saints College Bayelle great success in their exams.
