The Bolahun Alumni, Family and Friends Association (BAFFA) with support from some of its foreign based members has kicked off what it refers to as major academic reform at its Alma matter.
Presenting over 20 barrel of modern text books on behalf of the foreign based members of the association to the school’s Principal on Friday, August 7, 2015 in Bolahun, BAFFA Vice President for Operations, Madam Patricia S. Ndama termed the donation as the Alumni own way of identifying with the institution.
“These books we are donating here today are the Alumni’s own way of identifying with the school they graduated from”, She said.
She added that the donation is also in fulfillment of the Ministry of Education’s educational reform process currently ongoing across the country.
Some of the books donated include algebra 1 & 2, modern biology, chemistry and physics, including literature books.
The BAFFA VPO indicated that the revamping of their alma matter remains a top priority for them, noting that the books will help to enhance the reading skill of students and as well boost academic activities at the school.
“The books contain algebra 1 & 2, modern biology, chemistry and physics. We hope it will enhance the reading skills of our students, and adds academic value to our Alma matter”, the VOP emphasized.
Receiving the books, the Principal of the School, Mr. John Willie thanked BAFFA’s foreign based members for the donation and promised to use them for the intended purpose.
He said the donation will not only have impact on students attending the Bolahun Holy Cross Mission, but also students from the surrounding schools.

Meanwhile, Mr. John Willie has called on other members of the Alumni to emulate what he terms as a goodwill gestures by some of the foreign based members of the Bolahun Alumni, Family and Association.
