During an interview, the Chairman of the Alumni Association, Hon. Bola Iberu (Epe One), highlighted the importance of the initiative. “This initiative is not just to distribute food to the students; it is meant to give them a sense of belonging and assure them that the entire members of the old students’ association are supporting their journey to ensuring academic excellence,” he stated.

Hon. Iberu also emphasized the association’s ongoing commitment to the school’s progress, mentioning their collaborative efforts with the school management to maintain peace and stability. “We have embarked on several intervention programs and collaborated with the school management to explore technical or vocational training options for slower learners. In the senior school, we’ve supported the behavioural development of students by ensuring that only the best make it to SS3, which is why 52 students are currently writing the WAEC examinations,” he explained.

Further, he pointed out that promoting technical education helps manage the school population and maintain a serene learning environment. “The idea of exploring the technical school is an antidote to overpopulated schools, enhancing a peaceful environment devoid of too many bad influences,” he added.

Reacting to the initiative, the principal of the school, Mrs. Oyesola, advised students to study hard and aspire to give back to the school like their predecessors. She also reminded them to cook the packs of noodles before eating and extended heartfelt gratitude to the donors.

The students, overwhelmed by the surprise gifts, expressed their excitement and gratitude. The Head Boy and Head Girl delivered a heartwarming vote of thanks, appreciating the alumni association for their generous gesture.

This initiative not only provided immediate relief but also reinforced the strong bond between the alumni and the current students, setting a positive example for future generations.
