Update on the S.A.A.C Project

On the 26th of June 2009, the fliers for the S.A.A.C Essay Competitions was dispatched to the schools involved in the S.A.A.C project. The schools include; St Patrick’s College- Ikot Ansa, Government College-Ikot Ansa, Government Secondary School –Atu, Government Secondary- Henshaw Town, Edgerley Memorial Girls School, Army Day Secondary School, West African People’s Institute (WAPI), NYSC Model School, UNICAL international School and Government Technical College-Mayne Avenue.

The students were afforded 3 weeks to write an essay on the Topic” How Conflicts affect our lives” with a maximum of 1,500 words. The deadline for the essay is Friday, 17th of July 2009.

We are excited that the response we have so far is quite impressive, the writings are creative, and objective. Most of the essays we’ve gotten are very deserving of the prizes,but we have to hold on till the 17th to know “who the cap fits’

…Until then,we would keep you posted
