Farm In The Morning, School In The Afternoon, Life Of GJSS, Gombe Students
Academic activities for secondary school students around the country usually begin in the morning, but this is not so for students of Government Junior Secondary School (GJSS), Gelengu, Gombe State.
They go to farms in the morning and resume school activities in the afternoon, and this is because they have to share a building with another school since theirs is lacking in the standards expected of a conducive learning environment.
GJSS is located in Gelengu, Balanga Local Government Area of Gombe State and was established in March 2013 through a Universal Basic Education Commission and State Universal Basic Education Board project.
The students sit on stones, and place their books on the floor to write.
Leaking roofs, lack of chairs and tables, cracked walls, among others, are some of what characterise GJSS, Gelengu.
According to the principal of the school, Mr M. Philemon, since the school was constructed, chairs, tables and other learning facilities had never been supplied.
