Slecan Poetry/Jokes


"Little by little", said the thoughtful child
It is always by drops of water that an occean is formed
Momentum by momentum,
I will engross

Never going to bestow my tenure on gambols
Rather, I will take pains for the future
And whatever I do I will do it worthily
"Little by little said the thoughtful child
         Thank you.


How would I survive to relish you and my achievements?
You are fragile.
I am always baldly shaken when I think of losing.
Today abroad smile, tomorrow a tragedy.
Ah! Life you're a cheat.
Carpenters everywhere with smiles on giving out coffins to members of the fallen tree.
Life is a tragedy for the poor,
A comedy for the rich,
And a game for fools.
Life can easily betray me living death to lay its icy hands on me.
My dear friends, let's try to live a positive life for the route is too short and we do not know when life will betray.
Thank you.

What is book?
It is a set of printed pages put together
It informs, educates and entertain

It is the leader of every tunnel
Education is gained because of book
When it is gained it is cherished

It is the brain of every eye
It promises a bright future
Take a book today and surely tomorrow will be know.

Thank you.

Story Story



Once- there lived Ananse, his wife and children in Anansekrome. They had a very big farm. Ananse's wife Okondore Yaananse and his eldest child Ntikuma, were very hardworking.
Their farm was the biggest farm in the village due to their hard work, the Ananse’s family had a bumper harvest that year.
Kwaku Ananse did not want his family to enjoy the harvest with his family. He told his wife he was sick and he had the feeling he would die. He said his coffin should not be nailed and all the cooking utensils should be inside the grave. He said his grave should not be covered.
Not long after he wished, he died. His unsuspecting family did not go against his wish. The mourners and the family members were surprised about how he was buried.
In the night, Ananse got up from his grave. He harvested some of the crops and prepared a delicious meal. Then he
drunk water and ran back into hiding before day-broke. A week passed by and Ananse's family started noticing that some of the crops were disappearing. At first, they thought some thieves were taking advantage of their father's death and were stealing from their farm.
One month passed, two months......the farm was getting empty. The children were convinced that some wicked thieves were stealing their crops. Ntikuma came up with a plan. He would set up a trap to catch the thief.
He carved a live-sized man and painted it with a very sticky glue. He kept that carved image in the farm. In the night Ananse came out and just as he was about to start cooking, he saw the carved image. He approached it thinking it was another person who had come to the farm. Ananse spoke to the image, and when it did not speak back, he hit hard. His hand got stuck to the glue. Then he hit again with leg, and it also got stuck. Both legs and the also got stack to the image. No matter how hard he tried, he could not free himself. Ananse was glued the whole night.
In the morning, Ntikuma went to the farm. When he saw the man hanging on the carved image,he did not know it was his father. He left him hanging there and he rushed to the village and called everybody to go and see the thief he had caught.                                           

You can imagine Ananse's shame as he was surrounded by almost the whole village. They hooted at him and called him all kind of names.

Thomas Alva Edison (February 11 1847 to October 18,1931)was an American inventor  who has been described as America's great inventor. He developed many devices including the phonograph, the motion picture camera and the long lasting electric light bulb dubbed '' The ices that greatly influenced life Wizard Of Menlo Park ''.He was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large scale team work to the process of invention, and often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory. Some of his inventions are sound recorders, Mechanical Vote Recorders, Electric Car Battery etc. One of Edison's great invention that has helped humankind is an ELECTIC LIGHT BULB.

What is the importance of light?.Light is what enables us to see in the dark. As you all know
Thomas Edison  made the bulb as one of his invention .So the light bulb around our homes,
schools, parks etc .Are all form his idea ,Mr. Samuel Edison and Mrs. Nancy Edison (his parents)
encouraged him on his inventions .It has now  made him  great .

You can also encourage anyone on this, those that have the talent to invent things encourage them and they will be famous and you the person that encouraged him or her will also share a part of the fame because if you hadn't encouraged him or her they wouldn't have made that invention that has helped mankind and has made him or her famous. That’s all for now next time we will talk about LEONARDO DA VINCI.

Slecan Beats-- Its a Hit Men

In F.I.C, the entertainment section has always been the best section in the school. The students enjoy programs such as variety show, video show, cultural nights and so on. The entertainment masters always try their possible best to give us a nice program. On the 23rd of june,2018,it was a blast in the school. Everybody was enjoying the variety show especially the MAMS collection.


The show started with F.I.C,s cute dancers, Chantal and Tamara. They danced absolutely well that night followed by Bright in class 5,who performed a song entitled ''Bullet Prof''. The most favourite part was the MAMS collection. It occurs any time there a variety show. The members were Mallina, Michelle, Angela and Mariam who currently completed. They displayed spectacular outfits to the congregation. Their modelling was also superb. They really keep F.I.C on fire. the entertainment masters also come together and decide on a nice video for us. This and other moments makes the students happy and sad sometimes. The only problem we faced was the demotion of some of our entertainment prefects. And when the entertainment room key got missing. Our masters did their best to entertain us. We would like to thank them and the entertainment prefect, Bamaa Terrence and the other assistants for their good work. We promise that while we work with the entertainment prefects, entertainment would always be an unforgettable moment.

Pontifice (Our Faith)

Catholics believe that our Lord Jesus Christ founded the Catholic Church in the year 33 A.D. Jesus appointed the apostle Peter as the first vicar or pope. Matthew 16:18-19 is the scriptural reference Catholics quote to support this: “And I say unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (KJV)
Around the year 45 A.D., Peter went to Rome and assumed control of the Church. During the persecution of Christians by emperor Nero, Peter was imprisoned and scourged. He gave his farewell blessing to all of his flock, and especially to Saint Paul, who was going to be beheaded the same day outside Rome. He was then led to the top of the Vatican Mount to be executed by crucifixion. Deeming himself to be unworthy to die in the same position as our Lord, he asked to be crucified upside down. He received his eternal reward on June 29 in the year 67. Two hundred and sixty six popes have succeeded Peter since.


For the next three hundred years, Rome would begin a serious persecution against the truth. Christians began to meet behind closed doors and gradual changes were made. Elders of the Church were known as bishops, and by the close of the third century each congregation of any size had a bishop as its head with a group of elders under him. No work was to be done on Sundays.
In 306 A.D., Constantine became sole emperor of Rome. His mother Helena became a Christian and urged Constantine to ease up on the persecution of Christians. He decided that Christianity would now be the state religion. Finding much division in the Church, he decided to call a meeting to be held in Nicaea in May 325 A.D. to discuss and unite over the issues that divided the Church. Three hundred and eighteen bishops assembled and established the Nicene creed.
Several doctrines were decreed. (1) The oneness of the Deity (God is One); (2) Easter to be celebrated on the same day everywhere; (3) Preachers not to be married; (4) Certain meats not to be eaten by Bishops on Sunday; (5) A greater recognition to be given to the bishops of Antioch, Constantinople, Alexandria, Rome and Jerusalem. These bishops would be patriarchs, and all authority would be under them.
In 606 A.D., Boniface III was given the title ‘universal bishop’, the Pope of Rome. The word ‘pope’ means father. This marked the beginning of the Roman Catholic Church.
Today there are an estimated 1,038 million Catholics in the world. They make up almost 18% of the world population. The Pope still heads the Church, and priests are urged to remain celibate.

Michelle's Corner



Life they say is short but life cannot be short if we make good use of it as they say” Make hay whiles the sun shines, "must be applied to our lives. The world become so contaminated with lots of bad practices.
Drug abuse, Teenage pregnancy and Immorality are the main issues contaminating
this world. To start with, I will like to talk about DRUG ABUSE in general.
Drug Abuse is the intake of drugs without the prescription of a doctor.          
Drug Abuse is a very regular practice especially in our various homes, workplaces and societies where we live.
Paracetamol is one of the most common drugs which is mostly abused.
They  are countless reasons people abuse drugs.
POVERTY: Poverty affects lots of people especially in the villages ,they cannot afford to buy drugs for sickles.
PLEASURE: Drugs like cocaine, heroine and marijauna are taken because it feels nice when taking it.
Drugs like cocaine are said to be taken in regularly by addicts and others who have started the practice. They feel very high and uncontrollably excited.                          -
-Peer Influence:
-Broken homes:
-Lack of parental guidance:
Our peers now influence us to do lots of things both good and bad. Most of these things are always bad things .This mislead them even when resist.
Broken homes and lack of parental guidance: Children must be watched carefully by parents. They should be given the necessary advice and guidance to keep in the righteous ways and children who leave with broken homes are mostly affected.
Drug Abuse results to a couple of problems which are; Mental disorder.
School dropout.
Mental disorder may affect an individual if he or she has taken drugs such as ;cocaine too much .Addiction occurs when one has taken the drugs or keeps on taking drugs uncontrollably. Most individuals involved drop out of school due to substance or drug abuse they mostly cannot co-operate with others.
Counselling and efficient monitoring of an individual involved. One has to be monitored continuonsly to prevent intake of such drugs again. This happens when one is seriously addicted to drugs such as; cocaine, marijauna.etc. Teenage Pregnancy is a Teenager or an individual between the ages of 13-19.During this period many fall attracted to the opposite sex as they goes through adolescence. That is all time and space can permit me. Always remember to stay safe and respectful. Till I come your way again next edition, this has always been your most educative platform on the slecan Times Magazine, and am yours truly...
