SITUATION UPDATE ON THE NATIONAL PRIMARY SCHOOL EXAMINATION (NPSE)
Pupils in Primary Six schools across the country are today, 7th May 2022, taking their first-ever public examination; the National Primary School Examination (NPSE). The examination will usher successful candidates into the first year of their Junior Secondary School (JSS) academic journey.
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) in collaboration with the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary School Education (MBSSE) is conducting this all-important examination.
Security operatives, including personnel from the Office of National Security (ONS), the Sierra Leone Police (SLP) etc, are supporting the WAEC, MBSSE and other bodies in monitoring and securing the conduct of the examination.
Updates from across all administrative Districts in the country have so far revealed that the examination is ongoing without any major incidents. Pupils arrived at the respective centres on time and the examination commenced as scheduled. Teachers from both primary and secondary schools constitute the invigilation team.
It can therefore be safely stated that the initial fears threatening the successful conduct of the examination have been put behind us.
The National Security Coordinator, ONS; Mr. Abdulai Caulker, who was himself out and about monitoring the examination process ceases this opportunity, on behalf of the security sector, to wish all NPSE candidates success in this examination and all other future endeavours. He also expresses thanks and appreciations to the entire security sector for the resilient and continued show of commitment to the course of national development. Kudos!Keep the flames burning and thank you colleagues.
