Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
