Throughout the year, the values of curiosity and participation have been the foundation for his success at Hampaté Bâ Middle school. He has been a model student and has developed a real interest in computing skills. Beyond learning, he is a polite and friendly pupil who always has a smile on his face. His enthusiasm rubs off on people around him.
“The treatment at Hampaté Bâ School, in my opinion, is the best that we can get. We study in an environment where we are not scared or humiliated. Because of this, we are able to work well in an encouraging atmosphere. Besides the good learning conditions, I'm also very glad that I can learn computing skills at this school with great tools and special computer classes. Later on, I would like to specialize in computer programming."
According to her teachers, Fourera has been an absolute pleasure to teach because of her positive attitude and approaching everything she does with joy. She works hard and as a consequence has made enormous progress in all domains since she joined Hampaté Bâ School. Fourera also always has a kind word for all of her classmates. She has been recognized for her progress in arts and her team spirit.
"The Principal and the teachers try to instill certain values in us. One phrase that we constantly hear is : it is all about choice. We must learn to make the right choices. I have chosen to help my family financially and that is why I want to succeed in school."
