Excerpts of Principal's Address At 70th Commemoration of Founders Day - Present State of the School

The school population as at today stands as 2,194 made up of 1090 from the Junior section and 1104 students from the Senior section. The School has a total of 44 arms. It is principally day school with only 50 Students in the boarding house including 18 girls and 32 boys.

The school is not adequately staffed especially in some subjects chiefly Mathematics, ICT, Account, Physics, Chemistry, English Language, and Bible Knowledge.

In the areas of infrastructure, the school is undergoing a facelift as new structures are  springing up and old ones are being rehabilitated chiefly through the efforts of the great Old Students and the Central Bank Capacity Building Intervention Project. Projects that have been rehabilitated by the Old Students include the Ludlow Hall (1962 Set), the volleyball/basketball court (1982 Set) and the newly built students cafeteria (1965 Set).
 The rehabilitation of the school bus is ongoing and is being done by the 1969 Set.

 Aside from these, so many strudures in the school have been rehabilitated at one time or the other in addition to receipt of donations of furniture, books etc. The donation of 24 sets of wall clocks by one of the very young sets of alumni, the 2009 Set, has provided us with a clock in each classroom and this gesture meant that the younger set are toeing the good example of the older illustrious Sets. I sincerely believe that by the time of completion of all the projects, the School would have so much transformed to the liking of all with it keeping up the standard high in academic and discipline for which it had always been known.

  I would like to use the opportunity of this gathering to appreciate all the work being done presently and to appeal to the stakeholders to please redouble their efforts and hasten work and complete the very critical projects such as the Science Laboratories and the Classrooms in order to reduce the disruption in academic work and afford us time enough to prepare the Final Year Students in particular for the important external examinations (UTME, WAEC and NECO) ahead.
