Remember Your Favorite Teacher?
Remember the way he or she looked, the extra time spent with you, the inspiration you received and perhaps still receive from your memories?
Such lifelong remembrances are being created this very day at Good Shepherd Academy in Cameroon as our students begin the 2022-23 academic year.
“My favorite teacher is Mr. Che Churchill Che,” writes Form 5 student, Azinwi Bless Bih. “He is our principal, teaches English Language & Literature and also helps us with History. He has inspired me to be courageous in everything I do. I have kept in my memory many things he has taught me, like to be bold. In all school activities, we have been trained to be self-reliant. Someday we will be job creators and not just job seekers.”
Form 3 student Neba Richard Landa shares, “Mr. Teneng Gildas Teneng is my favorite. He teaches us Biology, Agriculture, sometimes Chemistry, and is also our Boarding Master. As our Boarding Master he makes sure there is discipline both in our dormitories and on campus. He is dark in complexion and not that tall. He has inspired me most especially in class to always be smart when asked to do something. With Entrepreneurship and Agriculture, I plan to be self-sustainable in the future.”
With a record number of students, along with new lab equipment, reference books, and fish and poultry farms we’re growing and realizing dreams we could only envision yesterday.
Dreams of a state-of-the-art campus with a thriving student body. Dreams of teachers who go the extra mile. Dreams of living into the GSA Core Values of Christian identity in the midst of religious diversity, a focus on 21st century skills, academic excellence, integrity, and the stewardship of creation.
We are delighted to announce the fulfillment of yet another dream!
Good Shepherd Academy is the recipient of a $25,000 Scholarship Grant from The Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida. Our scholarship program lies at the heart of GSA outreach to the countless number of students in need in Cameroon.
This generous grant brings the Sister Jane Mankaa Memorial Fund to a total of $145,000 to date. It is a living, growing fund used to support all aspects of life at Good Shepherd Academy — today and tomorrow. Our deep appreciation to each and every one of you who has donated.
