In no distant times, the ICT centre will be ready. At this age, if you are computer literate, it will stimulate your sense of reasoning and help you to bring out your potential in life. Maj. Gen. Lucky Irabor and I attended this school. If we can make it, you too can make it. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted. Assist your parents in whatever business or work they are doing.Be respectful, obey your teacher and anyone who comes your way. Don’t indulge in any negative acts that will tarnish your image but be of good behaviour within and outside the school”, he noted.
