Returning the favour for years of intellectual impact and beneficial endeavour, Oriwu Old students association, set ’97 visited its alma mater on the 29th of September 2022.
As part of activities lined up to mark her 25th anniversary, the alumni students facilitated the installation of a 3-extension water supply system to the junior secondary arm of the college.
Received by Mrs Awojide K.O (Principal, Oriwu Junior model college), the delighted bunch was led by Mr Olatunji Shakioye (Chairman, Set ’97), who officially presented the newly executed project to the gratified administration.
Extolling his classmates for completing the project and also the school administration for accepting it, Mr Shakioye illustrated the need to support the school via water system installation to mark its 25th anniversary.
In his words, “It is not just the product that matters but the value of returns the product brings about that makes the difference”.
“As former students who’ve gone through this school to become outstanding in life, we know the importance of water, which we deemed fit to facilitate after conducting a project assessment for the junior axis of the school”.
“We’re optimistic this project will go a long way to nourish the students in the area of water, as we can only ask the administration to stand in the gap for the motive of maintaining the structure for it to serve its purpose for a durable period” Shakioye added
According to Mrs Awojide, the school spent a lot of money yearly on plumbing, which makes it a huge relief that the old students association has decided to support the institution with such an essential undertaking.
Adding that the school will ensure the structure is well maintained, Awojide tendered a heartfelt appreciation message to the association.
“Today is one of the best days for me in this school, evaluating the meaning of this project to our daily operations. I am proud and very pleased at this association for delivering this magnanimous project, enhancing significance to this great academy of ours” she explains.
“It shows that we’re not forgotten and I must solicit you at this juncture that the good work you have done should continue because it is a seed you’re sowing which would eventually germinate positivity in your respective lives”.
“On behalf of the school, we thank the ’97 Set, Oriwu old students association for their kind-hearted support, it is a project that will stand the test of time” Mrs Awojide asserted.
