As Olumawu Schools celebrated its silver jubilee in providing quality educational service delivery in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), its management is looking in the direction of orphanages in a planned visitations in the territory in order to provide succour to the inmates.
In a press statement issued in Abuja by the director of the school, Mr Ola Garuba, the scheduled visitations to orphanages in Abuja by the school management is anchored on the template of charity, and to donate required materials to inmates of the various homes as part of its thanksgiving for God’s goodness to the management, staff and pupils of the school over the years. Mr Garuba, in the statement, said the orphanage visitations will come up next week to symbolically demonstrate what Valentine day stands for.
He disclosed in the statement that the school founded in 1993 by the late educationist, Chief Mrs Margret Audu, had earlier held a special Assembly last month to mark the day where all the milestones attained by the school were chronicled.
At the special assembly session held in January, it was amazing to all in attendance that a school which started with just few blocks of classrooms and teachers 25 years ago, is now a full-fledged pre-tertiary educational centre.
“Celebrating the silver jubilee of a success story called Olumawu School cannot be complete without seeking for further mercies, goodness and blessings of God by reaching out to the needy in the society, which in this case are children who found themselves in orphanages by fate.
The grand finale of the school’s silver jubilee celebration will be held in July during the school’s graduation ceremony.
Meanwhile the principal of the School, Dr Felicia Jackson, in a telephone interview with the Blueprint disclosed that a detailed compendium of academic feats attained by pupils of the school from 1993 till date would be made available at the grand finale in July.
