The Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic and the Board Chairman, UHS, Prof. Charles Esimone has pleaded with parents, guardians, benefactors and friends of the University to give Nnamdi Azikiwe University High School more face-lifts, by endowing the school with structures.

 

Prof. Esimone made this plea at UNIZIK High School’s Graduation/Prize-giving Ceremony at the University Auditorium held recently.  The DVC Academic appreciated all present for the event, especially parents.  He, however, urged parents to join forces with teachers in the moulding of the students, by instilling discipline.  Also, he called on the students to maintain good character, as that can take them high in life.

 

The Chairman of the event, Prof. Dennis Aribodor in his remarks gave an insight into the dwindling nature of education in Nigeria.  He captured his speech, “we have a duty”.  He called on parents, guardians, teachers, government official, students and workers to match actions with prayers, as education can be made priority for the future.

 

To the graduands, he said it was both an end and a beginning to a greater future.  He frowned at indiscipline and noted that UHS will not tolerate it.  Finally, he appreciated the Management and teachers of UHS and requested that they do not relent, but to keep the flag flying.

 

The Principal of the School, Lady Chibuzo Victoria Onyejike expressed joy at 5th graduation ceremony of the High School.  She thanked all who made effort to be present.  She said the graduation coincided with the school’s 10th anniversary.  Lady Onyejike thanked God that no lives have been lost.

According to her, the event calls for thanksgiving to God and to congratulate the 64 graduands who have toiled very hard for six (6) years.

 

She enumerated the progress recorded in two years, while thanking the Executive Governor of Anambra State, Chief Dr. Willie Obiano for his support to the school, and condoled with him on the death of his mother.  She also thanked the VC, Prof. Joseph E. Ahaneku, FAS for directing the High School aright, also to the University Community, parents and every other person that has contributed to the success of the day’s activities.

 

Again, she listed the challenges facing the school, while expressing hope that any help done to the school will be well managed.  After her speech, there was a performance by the Colour Party and the students of the School.

Highlight of the occasion was presentation of gifts to the graduands, drama presentation and the launch of the school’s magazine.
