A Catholic Mission School in the Catholic Diocese of Ikot Ekpene, Saint Columbanus Secondary School, Ikwen in Obot Akara Local Government Area has again been commended for its high academic standard which has enabled its students to compete favourably with their contemporaries in other parts of the world.
The latest of such commendation came from the principal of Glasgow High School, Deleware, United States Of America, Dean Ivory, who was speaking at the graduation ceremony of Glasgow High School, where two students, Imokutmfon Afiah and Edidiong Afiah who were transferred from saint columbanus to Glasgow High School graduated with honors where he noted that the excellent academic performance of the two students would not have been possible without the good foundation laid by Saint Columbanus secondary school.
The Principal of Saint Columbanus Secondary school, Reverend Father Emen Umoren, who made this known during the 2018 teachers’ promotion examination which took place in the school, said the feat achieved by the former students of Saint Columbanus was a testimony to the high academic standard maintained by the school over the years.
Rev. Fr. Umoren used the occasion to urge the teachers to do more, noting that their efforts were yielding results and also reminded parents wishing that admission is currently ongoing in the school. According to him, the last supplementary examination is slated for Saturday 23rd June, this year in the school premises at 9am.
In his response on behalf of the teachers, the Vice Principal Academics, Edwin Udo and the Chairman Staff Welfare Association Ini Usungurua who said the staff promotion examination was to further inculcate the values of Saint Columbanus in the teachers, thanked the principal for initiating the teachers’ promotion examination, adding that the exercise will impact positively on the them.
