Cecil and Joan Memorial Bilingual Nursery and Primary School abbreviated C&J: Mebinaps was founded by Mr Niger Thomas Moses a seasoned educationist and a pedagogic Inspector and Dr/Mrs Margaret Niger Thomas, a social Anthropologist and lecturer at the University of Buea, Cameroon.  In its inception in September 2008, C&J registered 15 pupils (boys/girls) housed in its imaginatively converted Hotel facility to a resource centre. The population has increased to 50 pupils in its second year 2009 ranging from nursery 1pupil to Primary 4. With this rate of increase, it is hoped that by its 3rd anniversary C&J would have recorded over 100 pupils.

C&J Mebinaps is child centered and ensures that each class does not exceed 25 pupils unlike government runned schools that have very large teacher – pupil ratio. C&J has adpoted the Montesori /Approach to education which is a child – centered method by which children are trained to be creative, explorative, communicative and innovative, while the teacher remains the guide. C&J Mebinaps distinguishes itself by providing food for its pupils as the administration realized that most pupils come to school without eating, thus in order to learn effectively, children need to have energy.

As a way of encouraging a holistic development of children C&J sets aside annual days for sports, music and arts. An inter-class competition is intended once a month with various sporting activities inclusive, filling the basket, dressing race and many other outdoor games. A Human Right’s Day is celebrated every ———-, music and arts day (Open Day) is held annually in December alongside the Christmas Jamboree. C&J lays special emphasis on the celebration of World’s Environment Day — where by pupils are given little palm/trees to plant and nurse, thus making them abreast with nature and combating climate change which is the order of the day; see slights of Christmas Jamboree.

Apart from a radically different approach, C&J Mebinaps also offers innovative additional programs to facilitate its pupils in learning and personal development. Amongst these are the availability of the kiddies corner, Holiday program, “one book a week” library project, school bus system, special days inclusive are celebration of the Human Rights day, Environmental Day, Sports Competition, Christmas Jamboree, Nursery and Primary Graduation and the C&J Mebinaps Parents Teachers NetWork. With the school’s yearly growth and limits imposed by the lack of funds, C&J Mebinaps desperately needs better facilities.
