Seyi who commissioned some projects in commemoration of the school�s anniversary applauded the GCIOBA for their tireless efforts on the school.

He said: �The premises of the school look like a massive construction site. Everywhere you see construction work going on. We will support them to the fullest as much as possible. Whatever they need from government they will get it�.

�We always have challenges no matter how good the system is. We have challenges with the quality of teachers and also getting parents to know that they have primary responsibility to train their children. We have to do more on that so that parents can complement what we are doing.�
