Sikolo A ne Mfi Initiative: Once upon a time in Ke’eke.

For its last outing of the 2022/2023 school year, the education promotion initiative of The belinga Foundation, which dressed for the occasion in its finest attire, made a stopover in Ke’eke this Thursday, April 27, 2023.

An amazing grand finale


11 schools (9 primary, 2 nursery), about twenty activities on the program and as many awards, about fifty teachers and supervisors, more than 500 students present, more than a thousand spectators for not far from 7 hours of a show rich in color and sound. Despite the somewhat gloomy weather, the village of Ke’eke in particular and the Essessana-Nnemeyong I education sector celebrated with pomp and circumstance education and gave a space of expression for our most talented children.

Rigor and fair play.

Beyond the tears of the losers or the songs and shouts of joy of the winners, what we must keep from this beautiful day and even from this beautiful initiative, is the desire or even the obsession of not letting cheating pass. For example, in athletics, where only 15 athletes (9 boys, 6 girls) were selected for the sprint races, the selection process, as explained by the regional coordinator of athletics, who came in person to supervise the competitions, was drastic: “After a dental examination to ensure that the child has no more than 26 teeth, the child goes through a commission to control the morphology. And it is only after this that he is admitted to compete”. A will of equity which is to be welcomed when one remembers the main objective of this initiative which is to detect the best talents in various fields in order to make them the leaders of tomorrow.

Academic excellence rewarded.

While sportsmanship and artistic creativity were celebrated, special emphasis was placed on promoting academic excellence. Thus, the best students from each of the 11 elementary school in the area received a special award. The objective is obviously to create a healthy emulation among our young learners.
The highlight of the day was undoubtedly the final of the soccer tournament between Mengong Public School Group I and Ke’eke Public School. After a hard-fought game, Ke’eke Public School won the trophy with a score of 2 goals to 1.

The best for the coming school year.

In his closing remarks, Mr. Evele Esso’one thanked all the participants, the supervisors, the authorities of the host villages and especially the Belinga Foundation, the initiator. “We are satisfied with the work done for education,” he said.
