The governor hailed the cooperation from donors in supporting education and the fight against illiteracy.

He said girl-child education is very important and there is already a draft bill to protect girls against early pregnancy and it will soon be passed by the state legislative assembly.

He said that education is the only way to boost development in the state and he condemned the behaviour of strikes in schools adding that this leads to destruction and hinders effective learning.

He urged all the students at the school to be united and work towards one goal which is striving for academic success.

The State Minister of General Education and Instruction Hon. Pia Philip Michael appreciated the donors from Italy and African Medical Research Foundation (AMREF) for their support in the education sector.

He promised to work hand in hand in fighting illiteracy especially among young people and to make sure the boarding school takes the lead in South Sudan.

The minister said it is a collective responsibility of the community who should take care of the schools and the role of the government is to facilitate education adding that the school is for all the ten counties in the state and needs support from both the community of the state and the government.

Marriam Rose from Italy together with her husband Emiolio Richard supported the school in memory of their son whom they lost some two years ago.

The couple promised to render support to the school based on their capacity.
