The 2004 old students association also disclose plans to kick-start a mentoring and vocational training programme for graduating students and it has been highly commended by the school.

Expressing her appreciation, Oyelehin Adejoke Abimbola, principal of the school, commended members of the association for deeming it fit to remember their alma mater.

She said the photocopier machine was timely as the previous one is not up to standard. She welcomed the idea of career talk but suggested that the old students could also engage the students in vocational education.

She added that discipline is still the top priority of the school, insisting that the management would never condone any act of indiscipline. She finally prayed for the members and wishes them good luck in their future endeavours.
