The electricity supply in the region is very unreliable. To ensure that the school has a regular and consistent supply of electricity, the board of AEP has agreed fund an additional generator. A reliable electricity supply is essential especially for the science and computer labs. At this point, solar power is not a viable option for the school campus.
The 2017 WAEC results from Graceland International School are in, and we are very pleased to report that our students again scored well on these important exams.
Graceland Hospital construction underway.
During our week in Gusau at Graceland International School, Bishop John Danbinta took time to give a tour of Graceland Hospital, currently under construction. As Gusau is a capital city, a small clinic would not suffice, so a large hospital facility is in the works. The hospital will provide not only basic medical care but surgery and maternity services as well. Being branded under the school name will strengthen the connection between medical care and education. Students from the school will be able to get first-hand experience in the medical fields by walking through the gate.
This is an ambitious project funded by Kateri Medical Services, Inc., another NGO based in Tariffville, CT. The plan is to complete the hospital for October, 2018, in time for an inaugural medical outreach. In addition, plans are underway to have a dual dedication of the hospital and Graceland International School exam hall.
