Group C emerged the winner while group A came second followed by Group I which came third.
“I want to thank the school management for giving me the opportunity to conduct this training. You know this is not the0 only school I visited. I went to other schools but they didn’t give me an encouraging response. But when I came to GDSSS Gombe, they welcomed me and that alone was very encouraging”.
“and also to the students, don’t just end where we stopped. We’ve learnt a lot in this past week we’ve been exposed to a rare opportunity, and it wouldn’t be nice if we end it here. You can always think of something and design. Practice makes perfect”.
“I want to thank the TOP Teens team on behalf of the students and the school for your effort in bringing these opportunities to us. For me, this is my first time of seeing something like this. I didn’t know before now there was anything like graphics design. I thought maybe they use hands to write and draw on these posters I normally see around. I didn’t know one could use a computer to design anything. I had never seen anything like that. We are so much grateful for your effort and time. Thank you for everything”.
“we really appreciate what you did for us. Its really a paramount opportunity to learn something like this. Nobody gets opportunities like this easily and we who got the opportunity are very grateful”.
