Carey Elizabeth Walter International School System or CEWISS situated in New Kaymah Community, Paynesville City outside Monrovia has completed phase one of a two-storey (10 classrooms) school building estimated at over US$10,000.
When completed, the facility will provide sufficient space to accommodate the student population of over 126 on campus. The Principal of the school Mr. Jerry G. Kokeh said the project is a self-initiative of the school.
He said the CEWISS, which was established between 2012 and 2013, has been faced with serious accommodation problem, amid increase in enrolment. The school presently runs classes up to 9th grade and is one of many institutions in the New Kaymah Community that continues to provide quality education to school-age children in the area with no subsidy from central government.
Principal Kokeh said there are plans to extend to other parts of the country in the not too distant future to afford Liberians an opportunity to acquire quality education. Meanwhile, the CEWISS boss said it was disheartening that his institution did not benefit from a nationwide distribution of educational materials by UNICEF to schools and called on the Ministry of Education to ensure that justice is done to all by providing those needy materials for his students and teaching staff.
