He said it is evident from the activities that, the junior school has positively impacted on the students, lasting virtues of good morals of honesty, hard work, discipline, commitment and academic interest, while urging them to sustain them throughout their lifetime.
Sharing their three years experiences in the school, the outgoing head boy and head girl, Aliyu Sherif and Okosi Elizabeth, respectively said, it is an adventure for them as they had to coordinate the students while facing other academic challenges.
