”I want the graduands to know that education is life and it is like a tree that grows after its roots are watered.

”You should do away with the word impossibility. You should be determined and work to get to your goals. More importantly, you should always pray to God and be good ambassadors of this school.”

The Executive Director of the school, Mr Jide Bello, thanked parents for their support and loyalty which he noted had helped to build the school to its enviable height in the last few years.

He noted that all the graduating students came out in flying colours in the recently released results of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) Senior Secondary Certificate Examination.

The event witnessed musical presentation by the school’s band, poetry recitation, production of hair cream by the school’s JET Club and presentation by the pupils on the merits and demerits of social media.
