FAKO UK/FAKO NEWS CENTRE PRESENTS 2014  CAMEROON GCE RESULTS STATISTICS AND ANALYSIS EMPOWERING THE GIRL CHILD ...SPIRITUALLY!!! 2015 INTERNATIONAL YOUNG WOMEN'S CONFERENCE @ SAKER BAPTIST COLLEGE ~ February 26 - March 1 2015

Miss Larissa Ngangoum, Miss World Cameroon 2014, arrived in Limbe on Sunday September 14th to kick off a Nationwide Tour of Schools in Cameroon, Promoting Quality Education for Underprivileged Children and Encouraging Girls to Take on  Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics  (STEM)

Larissa is determined to bridge the gap that exists between male and female students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). There are more boys pursuing STEM in Cameroon than girls and she wants to change that by encouraging more girls to take an interest in these areas. She will be launching  The Larissa Ngangoum STEM Awards for Girls , to honor those who excel in STEM subjects. 

She selected Saker Baptist College in Limbe, an all girls Christian institution known for its excellence, to launch this Award. She will spend time with the girls in their Science classes, share their experiences and use the opportunity to inspire and encourage them to pursue STEM, using her own experience as a 4th year Pharmacy student whose plan is to open her own Pharmacy in Cameroon in the near future.

Miss World Cameroon Larissa Ngangoum is scheduled to Visit the following Schools in the South West Region from Tuesday to Friday of this Week.

Roman Catholic School, Gardens, Limbe National Comprehensive High School, Limbe Saker Baptist College Limbe Baptist High School Buea The Beauty Queen who was crowned in Yaounde in July 2014, is a 4th year Student at a School of Pharmacy in Maryland USA. She entered the  Miss Cameroon  Contest after winning the  Miss Cameroon USA  title in 2013. She is the youngest daughter among 5 girls, born and raised in Yaounde, the nation's capital. She says growing up with a single mother of 5 girls was very tough until she got an opportunity to pursue higher education in the United States. Today she wants to inspire children to stay focused in school and build their dreams. 

To Support Queen Larissa in her efforts to impact the lives of children in Cameroon, please visit her fund raising Page and make a donation. www.gofundme.com/educatecameroonchildren She went on to make the following statement right after her visit to the school: "Dearest Family, Friends and Fans: Here are a few candid shots out of your Queen's cell phone. This was at the famous Saker Baptist College in Limbe, Southwest region, an all girls boarding school renowned for its high academic standards. Saker has produced some of the brightest women in Cameroon and West Africa, and many of them currently hold leadership positions all over the world. So I finally lived my own dream of being a boarding school student for a day, as much as I used the opportunity to talk to these wonderful girls about the importance of education, particularly in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). I also used the occasion to launch my Larissa Ngangoum Scholarship Award for the Best Female STEM Student at the end of the academic year. With your help, we can make it a permanent award in the future."  SAKER PRIZE GIVING CEREMONY KEYNOTE ADDRESS BY TIMA HADDISON 18 MAY 2013 Mrs. TIMA MOTUBA HADDISON

Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you peace in the name of our LORD Jesus Christ. It is an answered prayer for me to be here today and to administer a few words of encouragement and advice to our graduating students. Permit me to say thank you to our LORD JESUS CHRIST who has brought you this far in your academic course. I say thanks to your parents, grandparents, relatives and guardians who have demonstrated love in every form to see you through your years in SBC. Thanks also go to the Saker Principal and her Administrative staff, the teaching staff, the workers in the kitchen in the work shed, the drivers, the guards and labourers who all contribute to the smooth running of the affairs of this institutions. Last but not the least, thank you graduating classes for hanging in there and not giving up; for determining to finish what you started five and seven years ago. Keep it up; you have barely a few weeks to go to the end. Do not grow weary.

The theme for this speech is ‘Soaring on wings as eagles.’ Today I want you to look at soaring from the perspective of POWER and WISDOM. These two elements are needed for balance. The idea of soaring is very appealing to most people who want to be, at the top, to succeed, to be known, to be in the lamplight, to excel and achieve greatness; but to get to this heights of greatness, there are requirements, conditions, and prerequisite to be met.

The eagle is a bird of heights, it lives in high mountain rocks. This means it needs powerful wings to soar to its place of abode. It also needs wisdom to channel that power. No other bird can attain the eagle’s height.  Determine to fly only with eagles. Avoid chickens which are grounded birds. Eagles thrive in stormy weather. The eagle waits for the wind of the storm to have a free ride home. As the storm arrives, it spreads both wings for balance; it does not flutter them for he is wise enough to know that at this time, it is not in control of the wind, but rather the wind is in control. So it positions itself comfortably and allows the wind to give it a lift home. It has the power to support itself and the wisdom to be still and know that something else is lifting it up.  You too young ladies, ask God for wisdom to remain still in His presence in time of trouble so that He can raise you up to the point where He has purposed for you-that is seated in heavenly places with CHRIST JESUS. Do not be afraid of the storm; it is just another vehicle to take you to great heights for every obstacle you overcome helps you grow stronger and able to face the next.  

The eagle’s vision is very powerful. It can see a prey some five km away. It focusses on it and is not distracted until it gets it. Do not be distracted. Focus on Jesus Christ the author and finisher of your faith. Read the Bible, meditate on it, pray and trust God. When Peter looked at Jesus, he walked on water but the moment his attention was turned from Jesus, he began to sink. If you depend on him, you will not falter but soar to greater heights. 

Eagles eat only fresh foods. So fill your mouths daily with the bread of life for new inspiration and blessings. The book of Joshua says ‘this word of the law shall not depart from your mouth, meditate on it day and night so that you may have good success and prosperity’. Do not eat the stale food of false doctrines, gossips, backbiting etc.  Be careful also of what you watch. With the new found freedom, you would be tempted to try out all the things you were forbidden from. Remember that Satan finds work for idle minds. Beware of those things that are appealing to the eyes. Do not be enticed by them like Eve.

As the female eagle tests the male before mating you should test every friendships, every partnership and every spirit. Watch out for wolves in sheep clothing. Those friends who will invite you to places you know you should not be in. When you are challenged to do something against the Word of God, challenge that person to also receive Jesus.  

You have spent five and seven years in Saker, where you have had mentors- both strict and lenient to train, counsel, direct, guide and advice you. You have acquired the ingredients for waiting on the LORD. 

You are now going to the world, some to university where you will be solely responsible for the direction of your life, some to marriage and some to other businesses. Use this acquired knowledge to strengthen you to go above the temptations and challenges you will face from your peers, authorities and others. Do not allow yourselves to be tossed about by every wind of doctrine.

Remember the education you received from this institution. Education not in high grades but in Christian living. High grades do not determine what or who you will be in the future, but dependence on Jesus Christ and hard work. So don’t give up.  A high grade in biology will take you to the top of the class, but education in Biology teaches you to respect life from its inception. A high grade in Maths will ensure a prize, but education in maths will enable you to calculate the cost of an act before you embark on it. Remember that though everything is permissible not everything is constructive or beneficial. A high grade in geography may enable you know the regions of the world, but education in geography enables you to appreciate the lengths and breaths of God’s creation acknowledging that you alone do not make up the universe. A high grade in religion may add to your university points, but education in religion enables you to know that only God’s love and truth sets you free.  In Saker you received education to take you through the storms of life; the total dependence on Jesus and Jesus alone.

Intentionally wait on the LORD and He will put you above the storms of this world. What storms are coming your way? Determine to ride on them. Are you struggling with the decision to cut corners, shame, and guilt for something you did in hiding? Have you made a covenant that you are unable to break free from? Wait intentionally on the LORD. Seek Him diligently, avoid relationships that will break your powerful wings and turn you into a grounded bird. Avoid relationships that will make you lose focus and turn you into a wind tossed object. Stay steadfast, the storm can only take you to greater heights. Be a waiter on the LORD and let Him give you a lift home.

Remove weights that distract you. Weights are good deeds, old habits and things we are used to doing in the same manner over time. You need to put away some of these weights and habits. Take time off to be alone with the LORD for new strength and revival.  

Go into the world with the intention to soar as eagles, being fully aware that you cannot soar without waiting on the LORD who gives you power and wisdom. 

May the LORD be with YOU.

AT SBC!!  (June 10 - 14 2013) The Form 5 and Upper Sixth Students who had stayed back after the rest of the school went on Vacation in May, finally head home!!! GREAT to see the grass that looked so scorched in the Golden Jubilee Pictures looking verdant again!! SOME THINGS HAVE CHANGED AT S.B.C., SOME, NOT SO MUCH ... The Physics Lab in the 60s. (L to R: Sisters Janet Mboti Ngongi, Elizabeth Tambe Elango, Margaret Tendo Besong, Dora Ekiko.) The Renovated BURNLEY House. (No more iron buckets, I guess?!) KUDOS, ExSSA-CAMEROON, for a job well done! PRINCIPAL Stella Tonge MATUKE and BAND INSTRUCTOR, Mr. Elive Luma NGALE, with the BAND, in their Uniforms. Please Click On Picture Above To See A Few More Pictures!

​Pictures of Saker Baptist College's BAND never fail to generate excitement and pride in all SAKERETTES. It is simply a JOY to see the girls looking "SHARP" in their uniforms, producing MUSIC in a way that deviates from the "TRADITIONAL" way SBC has done in the past - with BRIO. It had crossed my mind a while back to find out more about this famous band, but I just never got around to it. AND THEN ... I got a message via SakerPride from "a certain"  Mr. ELIVE LUMA NGALE , who turned out to be ... not only "THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE PTA IN SAKER" but also  " THE INSTRUCTOR OF THE NEWLY CREATED SAKER MARCHING BAND "!! Impressive Credentials, won't you say??!! Well, wait till you hear what else I subsequently found out regarding his "SAKER CONNECTIONS": - HIS MOTHER IS NONE OTHER THAN  LATE PIONEER HANNAH KALE , STUDENT #11, ( SEE PICTURE BELOW ) Which makes him a  "CARAT" and, - HE IS MARRIED TO  SAKERETTE ELIZABETH LYONGA , STUDENT #1839 (Class of 1987), which makes him a  "CAT" ! !!

ABOUT THE BAND

Says Mr. Ngale:  " I have  80 Members in the band , with  18 Instruments . The girls did wonderfully well in their first outing, during the 2014 Youth Day Feast. The Competition is very keen amongst the schools.

THE BAND INSTRUCTOR'S DREAM

My dream is to stamp SAKER not only as a School known for having the best Singers, but also Wonderful Trumpeters, Drummers, and Drum Majors. We are on, and shall never stop till we see this come true! 

HIS PLEA/APPEAL/WISH

 The Principal has already set the pace with the initial instruments but, given the very keen competition from other schools, we do need AN ULTRA MODERN SET OF INSTRUMENTS WITH UNIFORMS (The School's Contact Information is posted at the top of this page)

​L. to R. Standing: Sisters Mboti Ngongi, Rose Japhet Ekindi, Bertha Njie Effange, Teckla Khumba, Monica Akoachere, Hannah Kale  (RIP), Ruby Fominyen.  L to R. Squatting: Sisters Comfort Ngende Mbafor (RIP), Grace Fonane, Joan Kamga Chuo, Hannah Ndome Moni, Elizabeth Tanyi Sikod. (Early 60s) The Mango Tree/Kennedy Dorm End of the Lawn. (My Goodness! Look at all those "ONE BITES" on that tree.) Yes! "KING HOUSE LAWN" is gone, but there is a bettah CHAPEL to stage plays and concerts in its place!  And, YES! "THE HEDGE" is gone, but this is, quite a GREAT "Background" for PICTURE DAY, and I do not see "PARAMOUNT", "APOLLO" or "EVERGREEN" disagreeing with me at all! All I have left to say then is, EXSSA-CAMEROON, OYAAAAAAAAAAAY! AND, GUESS WHO GETS SINGLED OUT FOR A SPECIAL VOTE OF THANKS??!! ... CARAT CHLOE'S QUEST: FROM FRANCE TO SAKER BAPTIST COLLEGE, LIMBE I'll be frank: One of the things I was looking forward to as I set off to attend the ExSSA-UK Convention, was a possible repeat of Doreen Mbuagbaw's MICHAEL JACKSON performance, complete with the Moonwalk, only for me to get there and "shine eye". YUP! ExSSA-UK's resident-in-France, Member-At-Large extraordinaire, was a NO SHOW! The story she tells below explains just why she was unavoidably absent.  Talk about a FANTASTIC reason for "lebbing"!!! 

She made me promise to visit her on the second visiting Saturday. I always keep to my promises, I am one of those… Then I was gone, on the night flight back to Paris.  On the flight, I felt I had achieved something significant – my daughter had gone in search of inner beauty, and values that are not common in the west: respect, humility, a desire/hunger to achieve, to create and impact mankind, - a kind of world view wherein hurdles are not seen as obstacles, but as challenges or stepping stones: the importance of family – this is the education I want for her, not just A-grades in English, Math, History, etc, but an all rounded education to make her an all rounded, well adjusted, powerful woman. But I cried too…

A Note To Parents:  When you take a decision about your child, be very sure, and be prepared to work at it to facilitate the child’s mission. Be aware of the negative comments but stay strong – I heard from fellow Sakerettes – "Will she cope?"; I heard the dreaded word - "toilets"; oh dear! "She will have to cut her hair!" "Cameroon education is S--T, I cannot send my child to study in that country!" etc, etc. I had a response for all of those comments; She will cope, after all she has my spirit hidden somewhere in her; she will learn to adapt; she will squat instead of sit, to use the toilets if need be; hair is outer beauty; she is in search of inner beauty; about Cameroon education, – it depends on your definition of education. For me, it is not just passing subjects, but acquiring and developing skills and values that she will use and feed on in her adulthood.  {... And Ma SakerPride screameth: "AMEN OH!"}

To end my story, a phone call after one week at Saker confirms that Chloe is doing fine- in their own words, “very neat, very organized, time conscious and is adapting better than most kids born and raised in Cameroon”. Of course we, (mum, dad and brother), miss her at home but she is gone for an adventure and will return to tell us her own side of the story.

Just thought someone other than me might be interested in re-viewing that Michael Jackson performance from last year! SHE'S BAAAAD! SO FAR, SO GOOD OH! (2 Months & 2 Weeks Later ...) ​CHLOE’S CHRONICLES CONTINUED ... FORM 2; HERE WE COME!! INTER-HOUSE COMPETITIONS 2016 EDITION!! Friday, October 28 2016 PLEASE CLICK ON THIS IMAGE TO VIEW ALBUM S.B.C.

​Even if Principal SHOMSI had been living under a rock these past few days it is not likely that he would have missed the EXCITING, FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND NEWS that an INDEPENDENT SORORITY comprising SAKERETTES resident around the globe has been born!  The group's PRESIDENT, Class of 1978's Mrs. ROSELINE NZEGGE NGAAJE however wouldn't take the chance so, on Wednesday, January 4 2017, she wasted no time in going up the Saker Hill, (a hill with which she is more familiar than most Sakerettes having returned to serve in SBC as a TUTOR), to present STA's best wishes for a successful year! As could be expected, she was very warmly received by the Principal, who, it must be pointed out was also once a TUTOR at SBC!!!! GODSPEED TO THEM BOTH!!!

Mr. WILFRED GHAWI SHOMSI  takes over from Ms STELLA TONGE MATUKE as PRINCIPAL OF SAKER BAPTIST COLLEGE

L to R: Incoming Principal and erstwhile SBC Tutor/PLOTS MASTER, Mr. SHOMSI, CBC Education Secretary & erstwhile Principal of SBC, Mr. Paul HADDISON & Outgoing Principal, Ms MATUKE

The Baton of Command of Saker Baptist College Limbe has  been passed on to Mr. Wilfred Ghawi Shomsi, former Principal of BHS Yaounde, and erstwhile Tutor/Plots Master at SBC. He takes over the administration of the school from Ms Stella Tonge Matuke who is now at the helm of the Baptist High School in Kumba. The handing over ceremony was presided over by CBC Education Secretary,  Mr. Paul Luma Kwango Haddison, in the Presence of the Limbe Field Pastor, The CBC Pedagogic Advisers for Basic and Secondary Education, the Vice Principal, as well as other members of the Administration and Staff.  Hearty CONGRATULATIONS and a warm WELCOME to Mr. SHOMSI and a heartfelt THANK YOU & GODSPEED to Ms MATUKE!

CLASS OF 1996 - 2001/2003 DAMSELS CELEBRATE THEIR 20 YEAR FRIENDSHIP BY GIVING BACK TO SAKER BAPTIST COLLEGE!!!  (Sunday, November 20 2016) KUDOS TO THE DYNAMIC G96-ERS!!!

Front Row, L to R:  Iyok Florence epse Tarh, Tangoung Quinshie epse Ashu, Ewolo Geraldine epse Taminang, Mokwe Welisane epse Nkeng, Etonde Martin, Elangwe Rose epse Ekpombang, Sheila Mah. Second Row, L to R:  Nkwanyuo Kristy, Joso Mbuagbaw, Binda adaa-mbi epse Ebai, Mbong Ebude epse Ekume, Ngande Yvette epse Agbor, Mosenge Vanessa Dovi. September 2016 Marked 20 years since the class of 1996 first set foot in SAKER BAPTIST COLLEGE. Instead of just having themselves a Champagne and Caviar shindig or Boat Cruise to some far off land, (which is no crime, by the way), they felt and ACTED on the need to give back to a school which they credit for giving them a solid Educational Background, A firm Christian Foundation, high Moral Standards, True Sister-Friends and so much more.  That is why, on Sunday, November 20th 2016, they presented to the staff a refurbished Staff Room (Walls, Cupboards and Shelves painted, new Curtains hung, new Tables and Chairs, Tea cups, Coffee Maker, provided, etc.) They did not stop there! They went on to give a TALK to the Form 5, L6 & U6 Students on a range of pertinent topics notably: Career Options Staying a Christian after SBC Morals and Values If You Must "FALL BUSH". (LOL!) As expected, the enthused Staff and Student Body expressed sincere gratitude for this remarkable gesture; A truly exemplary act for which they deserve to be commended!  BRAVO, Ladies! Thank you for doing something that not just benefits the students, but also their teachers, without whom our Alma Mater would not be registering the outstanding results at the GCE that make us all so very proud!

WELL DONE SAKER BAPTIST COLLEGE, LIMBE,  FAKO DIVISION, FOR HAVING THE BEST GCE ORDINARY LEVEL RESULTS IN CAMEROON AND ALSO PRODUCING THE TOP TWO STUDENTS IN CAMEROON!!!!!!

Story written By Evelyn Mojoko Singeh in Buea for  Fako UK/Fako News Centre, and re-posted here with the express permission of the Management. http://www.fakonewscentre.com/2016sakerbestresults.htm

If people in Cameroon and the diaspora who understand what it means by a school having the overall best results at the GCE Ordinary level were asked to guess which school would come top in 2016, most would have said Sacred Heart College Bamenda or Our Lady of Lourdes Bamenda or PSS Mankon, Bamenda. Truly speaking, these Mezam Division schools have dominated the top position at the Ordinary Level for the past thirty years if you put together key measures such as overall pass rate, quality of grades and performances in mathematics and English language. The 2016 graduating Form Five class of Saker Baptist College, Limbe, Fako division, has broken that Mezam division monopoly in grand style. The school beat every other school at the Ordinary Level (overall pass rate + average number of A grades + performance in maths + performance in English + percentage of students who passed overall including passes in both maths and English).It scored a total of 346 points and produced the top two students in the country as well. Sacred Heart College Bamenda, Our Lady of Lourdes Secondary School, Bamenda, St Benedict’s College, Mvolye, Yaounde, Sacred Heart College, Douala and PSS Mankon, Bamenda, were 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th respectively.

The 96 students of Saker, who all passed, netted 276 A grades, 350 B grades and 298 C grades, the best results in the school’s 54-year history. ‘A’ grades were achieved in all the subjects, especially Biology (highest number of A grades, about half the group got an A in Biology), Economics (1st in Cameroon including highest number of A grades), Chemistry, Physics (the school had the highest percentage of A grades in Physics in the country), maths (4th highest percentage of A grades) and English (best English results in the country including highest number of A grades).

Clarisse Agbor Enoetie (Saker), who came first in Cameroon, returned a clean sweep of 11 A grades with the highest total mark within the grade boundaries. The second best student in Cameroon, Ntonifor Monela Mah-Ngum, who also scooped 11A grades, was also from Saker. Helen Mbufong and Aliceson Tambe Enonchong each recorded 10As and 1B. Georgia Nyake achieved 9As and 2Bs while Gethsy Dubbe Abba, Charlene Endum De Nkouami and Claudia Evenge Noumbissie each scooped 8As and 3Bs (see detailed results of the Saker students who passed in 11 subjects below)

This group of students gave Ms Stella Tonge Matuke (their principal) the best possible send-off with their stunning results. It should be noted that it was under Ms Stella Matuke that these super outstanding results were achieved and two years ago under her, Saker produced the best Advanced Level student in Cameroon.

"ExSSA-HOUSTON'S 2014 S.B.C. SCHOLARSHIP AWARD TAKES ON A VERY SPECIAL TWIST!!!" 

It tells the story of how the 9th of December 2014 Scholarship Award Ceremony in which The sum of One Million Six Hundred Thousand Francs that had been raised by the HOUSTON Chapter of ExSSA-USA for four (4) full scholarships of four hundred thousand francs per Student unfolded. It goes on to state that the pre-selected 4 beneficiaries were magnanimous and selfless enough to approach the Principal - Ms STELLA MATUKE, and tell her that there were other students who deserved some help as well, which is how the Scholarship Money wound up going to 8 Students, each of them receiving Two Hundred Thousand Francs!! Here, by the way, is the email that ExSSA-USA's Current Music Director, then President of ExSSA-HOUSTON, Dr. BESSEM ENOH OBEN,  sent to Principal MATUKE a year ago, on the subject: From: Bessem Oben  Date: October 7, 2014 at 9:41:21 PM CDT To: Stella Tonge Subject: Re: master sheet for results promoting students into form five and upper sixth

ExSSA-HOUSTON

For well over a decade now,  ExSSA-USA's HOUSTON CHAPTER (ExSSA-HOUSTON)  has been awarding SCHOLARSHIPS to deserving students at SAKER BAPTIST COLLEGE. Last year was no exception, so on the 9th of December 2014, the Scholarship Award Ceremony took place,just like in the preceding years BUT THIS TIME, things went a little differently!  The One Million Six Hundred Thousand Francs sent was intended for four (4) full scholarships of four hundred thousand francs per Student. However, the preselected 4 beneficiaries were magnanimous and selfless enough to approach the Principal - Ms STELLA MATUKE, and tell her that there were other students who deserved some help as well.

MISS WORLD CAMEROON 2014 TO LAUNCH AWARD AT SAKER BAPTIST COLLEGE AS SHE PROMOTES SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING & MATH EDUCATION FOR GIRLS IN CAMEROON‏ 

THE VISIT TO S.B.C.!!!

Says Larissa here:  "I'm on my way to the famous Saker Baptist College today to meet the students and launch my STEM Scholarship Award. I'm so excited because I never attended a boarding school before, and this is my day of joy!" 

MORE COMMENTS FROM "THE QUEEN" "I just want to say that my trip to Saker Baptist College Limbe was very, very special. The school is known for its excellent standards in education and grooming of young Cameroonian Girls. I chose to launch My STEM STRONG GIRLS Award at Saker because I believe in the potential of the Girl Child. I was so touched by all the girls I met. I got the opportunity to sit in their classrooms to encourage and inspire them. I believe the future of Cameroon lies in its young women and STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, is the future. I hope to reach out to other Girls Colleges in the country. Thank you Saker Baptist College." PLEASE CLICK ON IMAGE TO THE RIGHT TO VIEW ENTIRE ALBUM! SBC's Miss Cameroon for the Day! Awwww!

NOW, LADIES! I took one look at this picture which was captioned: "Students going to class after Morning Devotions", and was able to INSTANTLY spot a MAJOR DIFFERENCE, compared to what was customary (or should I say, "Strictly Forbidden"), in my Mr. LUCAS NTONIFOR days at SBC!! Anyone else notice it??!!

I cannot began to describe the CONSTERNATION that gripped me when I woke up to these pictures this Sunday November 24th 2013!! After the suicide that occurred in our Sister School, Our Lady of Lourdes College, and in the wake of the very recent murder that occurred even closer to home at Sasse College - the Alma Mater of our CATS, Uncles, Brothers and Dads, (mine included), my nerves have been jittery, to say the very least! In fact, my reaction, the instant I got through reading the "COMPTE RENDU" on the Sasse Story as presented by the National President of SOBA, well respected CAT, Dr. Ephraim Ngwafor, 4 or 5 days ago now, was to not just cry out "A LOBA LA NDEDI", but to say a PRAYER that wound up being "PROACTIVE and PREEMPTIVE" in nature, because I reasoned, based on "SICK WEY E DEY CATCH COFFEE, NA SO-SO E DEY CATCH COCOA TOO" logic, that a similar sordid event might just be "coming to a school near you", as in SBC, if we do not WATCH & PRAY!! From under Mrs. Didi Ndando's Guest Room Blanket, I grabbed my cell phone and made a 6:33 a.m. call to the Principal of Saker Baptist College, Ms Stella Tonge Matuke, herself, and here is what I got from her by way of an explanation, in a nut shell:

- The arrest took place on the same Sunday that marked the end of the recent AGM, (whose happy pictures are posted above), on Sunday, October 13 2013. - The thief, nicknamed "THE MAN" has been stealing items ranging from towels to Books for YEARS at SBC. - He struck again just prior to the AGM, making away with brand new textbooks that had just been distributed on the 9th, but was later apprehended by Gendarmes. - Ms Matuke was called to come identify the stolen property, which turned out be a BAG FULL OF STUDENTS' TEXTBOOKS and even some notebooks! - The thief, Shey Eric - who is married with 3 children: 2 sons and a DAUGHTER, was sentenced 2 weeks ago to 6 YEARS in prison!

And so, when I head to St. Paul's Presbyterian Church here in Houston, in a couple of hours, I will have an additional reason to GIVE THANKS, because the story could have been very different, had this thief not been only after BOOKS, but their OWNERS as well!

MAY GOD WATCH OVER THE PRECIOUS CHILDREN IN ALL OUR BOARDING SCHOOLS OH!

The Round About, The Steps, The Administrative Block and of course, MBANGA BUSH!!! Principal Stella T. MATUKE is thankful for a successful school year! She reports that there were over 300 candidates at the interview 3 Saturdays ago, for only 150 spaces!! She spent part of her Saturday morning in Kumba "delivering" the much anticipated - or dreaded, REPORT CARDS for the area!

ONCE UPON A TIME ... There was this part of SAKER BAPTIST COLLEGE that was referred to as  "KING HOUSE LAWN" ...

​It was a favorite spot for "SNAFFING", "JARRING', COCONUT PICKING, and the KENNEDY DORM/UNDER THE MANGO TREE end of it was a KANDA & FRYING FISH BUYING Zone when MA HADDIE and/or MA FONJONG came a-selling! In fact, it serves as the SETTING for SCENE I of the HILARIOUS SKIT I posted a couple of days ago on the "STUDENT LIFE" Page of this same website!

The Dining Hall/Henderson Dorm End of KING HOUSE LAWN with the hedge that was next to the steps leading to the DH.

However, what that precious piece of land was BEST KNOWN for, was for being the SCENE for MISS KERN'S INFAMOUS EASTER & CHRISTMAS PLAYS/CONCERTS, which were Loved not just by US, Sakerettes, but also by the population of VICTORIA, and its surrounding cities! It was an HONOR and such a PRIVILEGE to be invited to attend these EVENTS!

Half of BURNLEY HOUSE is in place, and some of the KING HOUSE LAWN is still visible ... (Ms Christy MENYOLI) The hedge that formed the "BOUNDARY" between KING HOUSE LAWN and the Steps leading to the Dining Hall is now hemmed between the Burnley House Wall and the Steps! THEN, BAM! Here's BURNLEY HOUSE last year, 2013, COMPLETE ... and RENOVATED by ExSSA-CAMEROON, with "KING HOUSE LAWN" - and "The Hedge" totally a Distant Memory now!! AND THEN BAM-BAM-BAM!!!

PROUD SAKERETTE MOM, CLASS OF1991's DOREEN MBUAGBAW

CHLOE, My little girl; Living in France, studying in French but brought up by English-speaking parents is 9 yrs and some months old (the French call it "Neuf ans et poussiére") and is in what our generation would call class 6 primary school (today class 5). With one more year to go in her primary education, she surprises her teachers and principal with remarkably good grades, I am talking A++ in the first term. I am told at the Christmas play that if she continues as such she will be promoted straight to college or shall I say secondary school. I leave the theater with a SPRING in my step.

At the end of the second term, her performance surpassed the first term's, so now I have a BOUNCE to my walk and I am the proudest mother ever! Then I start to worry, asking myself questions: She is not old enough for college! I haven’t even found a school for her yet!, etc . Those of you married to spouses who are not from the same village, the same town, the same country and, worst of all, the same continent as you are, would sympathize with me because taking crucial decisions which incorporate vital life values is challenging, just because we have different world views. Married to a typical English man with no ragged edges with me having been "born and bred" in Cameroon - with several rough edges, meant that, choosing the right college for Chloe became the delicate subject of many a late night conjugal debate.  

This is how the debates started: – Our daughter is already bilingual and French education does not conquer the world – agreed! Easy. A Bilingual college would be perfect, and this automatically meant Cameroon and/or Canada. Well, this my Oga did not like him the sound of this, and hastened to quip: "Why not English only?" So, USA,UK, Ireland, South Africa all came into the picture. Given the short period we had left to look for a school and bearing in mind that the UK and Ireland only take first year secondary school children at age 11 ( I must say I found this absurd as the entrance is not based on knowledge but age), things were beginning to narrow themselves down to just a few countries. So, I quickly Jump up and declare: "Cameroon – Saker Baptist college!"

Straight to the internet he went, to google "S-A-K-E-R". First hit:  Saker Pride ! Thanks to you sister Egbe, this man spent 8 hours on the site, and came back to tell me at past midnight, that King House was being re-roofed, to which I answered, "What?" To conclude, because of  Saker Pride , the decision to go to Saker was made easily and quickly. But I still had work to do to prepare Chloe mentally for the upcoming differences in cuisine, pace, cold water bucket baths, etc… I was up to the task, and she was ready to please Mummy, YES; but most especially, she was excited to be going to the same college as Mummy.

Our adventure began on the 20th of August 2014. From London Heathrow, via Paris, Charles de Gaulle to Douala – Cameroon. All we had was two weeks adaptation period before we hit the Saker Gates. I wanted this adventure to be special, so I decided we begin by "coughing up" a little more money for the flight; – No Economy class oh, ma pikin; You deserve better, Chloe! We land in Douala and ... na we two di waka! It was Marché Central, day one; Mahima, day two; Ndokoti, day 3. We were ready: trunk, mattress, and all! Ah; One funny thing! Chloe had never seen a lance and asked me: “ what is a lance?”, to which I answered "A miniature machete". To which she commented; "Why would they need that? It sounds dangerous; What happened to lawn mowers?" I giggled and answered "Poor power supply"!… When we were done shopping and marking names we paid a visit to Saker. (Notice her excitement- this is not a "say cheese" picture oh! It is clear cut happiness).

 Then it was the nightmare of cutting her hair oh boy!… I had to work on my motherly skills. It came in the end, my joke: – on holidays you will have long extensions, you pick your length I pay for it. Your friends in Europe will never see you with short hair anyway.… "Hmmm" is what I got for an answer!. Pic 4 below: short hair, sad face, – but it did not last for long; Pic 5 below: Notice the thumbs up with her big/dulong and her Aunty ( Sister Comfort Mbuagbaw, a sakerette as well)… It was smoother than I thought. She was ready, she was happy, her name had Glassnapp" next to it, and she jumped on me and squealed, "Mummy! Same dormitory as you!!" … Then it was time for me to leave – Pic 6: in school gear - She cried! This I took as normal; she thinks of me as her world, her protector, her guide. Little does she know that it isn’t me, but The Lord, who has been protecting and will always protect her…. 

Reopening day in front of Saker Gate with cousins

After 2 months in Saker, with brother Benjamin and her Dulong/Big Chloe sent birthday wishes for Little Brother Benjamin’s 7th Birthday back in Paris and the family sent her finger-made hearts in return. Awwww! After 2 months in Saker, with brother Benjamin. After 1 month in Saker

​SHE'S OFF TO FORM 3 ALREADY!!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?????

A Jumbled Up Array of Experiences - I am Always Wondering 

My mother insist I write this message to my aunties and uncles who have been praying for me through my second year at Saker. But most especially she says my message will inspire a few young “Sakerettes to be” or completely put them off based on my reality stories. 

My experience in form 2 is for the most part similar to that of form 1 only with a splash of nearly a senior student. As I sail through my daily chores of scrubbing the dormitory, table serving, table captain, pots washing and most especially keeping my very own property clean and organised I don’t lose focus on time keeping as this is crucial in keeping your name out of the punishment list. Luckily, I don’t get to do all these chores on one day as they chop and change as the case may be. While I struggled with some of these activities in form one, they were less challenging in my second year hence I never had my name on the punishment list all year – this I am particularly proud off.  

Outside general housekeeping, dormitory life is full of activities and events which will all nicely fit in an 80 leaves exercise book. Some bring forth sadness and others laughter. The saddest parts for me is when my things disappear or when the dorm cap is particularly grumpy but for the most part laughter and shock prevails: – Poo suddenly finds itself on the lawn and I wonder how and why?; Buckets of water decorated with a floating panty each and I wonder what’s the reason – I understand it is to stop your water from migrating and I join the dip pant cult; A girl smuggles in apple juice look-alike alcohol and a few drunken students are discovered. Some end up in hospital for some sort of intoxication. This leads to dismissal and suspension and I am left wondering why such harsh punishment when my parents drink alcohol but never end up in hospital. I figure out I should warn mum to stay away from any apple juice type alcohol. All of this is boarding school life my mum says, but then again nothing surprises her. I am left wondering if she had same or worse in her time. 

One day I went for my early morning rushed bucket bath and upon my return I could not find my glasses. This was the worst day for me. I knew my mum would wear an ugly face and call me careless. I prayed that the saying “Saker girls don’t steal; they only take” is well and truly true because if someone "took", they would sure "return" right? ...
