The Ebonyi Market School, otherwise called Tehilia Schools, Abakaliki, has produced the first set of Primary Six school leavers.
The Ebonyi State Government established the school three years ago to reduce the number of out-of-school children in the state.
The Point reports that the school, situated at the Saint Margret Umahi International Market Abakaliki, will commence the registration of its Junior Secondary School pupils in readiness for resumption in September.
The Director, Agency for Mass Literacy in Ebonyi State, Mrs Stella Nwagu, during the graduation ceremony of the pupils, lauded the initiative of Governor David Umahi and his wife for establishing the school.
Nwagu noted that the Tehilia schools would boost the literacy level of children and reduce the population of out-of-school children in the state.
“We are here today for our first graduation ceremony. Tehilia Schools were established by the Governor of Ebonyi State and his wife for children of market women and men. We have the nursery, primary schools and are set to start registration for the junior secondary school students,” she said.
