We were very excited to be included in the festivities of the dedication of the exam hall and adjacent hospital complex. The changes in just a year’s time were quite remarkable. The second floor exam hall is outfitted with bright lighting, ceiling fans and student desks. The upstairs hall can also be used for community functions when not being used during the school day. The first floor houses a computer lab with eighteen desktop units, a media center with two computers, a teachers’ work room, and three administrative offices. There is also a high speed copy machine, something that was desperately needed the last time we visited!
The dedication was a wonderful event complete with drum and bugle corps and officials and leaders from the government and community. It was an all-day affair, in true Nigerian style, complete with speeches, media coverage, and feasting.
