Word of Faith Schools hold 34th graduation ceremony
THE management, workers and students of Word of Faith Schools (WOFS), a co-educational institution owned by Church of God Mission International (CGMI) recently rolled out the drums to celebrate the end of the 2015 academic session for its graduands with a call on the over 572 pupils and students graduating from the different arms of the school to pursue academic excellence with Godliness.
In his welcome address, the Administrator General of the school, Dr. Festus Akhimien, applauded the graduands for the successful completion of their studies, urging them to continue to keep faith as ambassadors of the great institution founded by the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa.
Akhimien, while reeling out the achievements of the school in its 34 years of existence, said the school was committed to instilling knowledge, discipline as well as cultivate Christian education in a bid to build leaders of tomorrow as change agents for national development and progress. Expressing appreciation to the proprietress and Archbishop of Church of God Mission Int’l, Most Rev.
Margaret Benson Idahosa for her unalloyed support and prayers towards the school, Akhimien noted that the school has continued to record success and won laurels in both academic and sporting events over the years. “In 2014 NECO results, our students were rated first and second best in Edo State. To us, it is a great feat in view of our avowed stance on zero tolerance for examination malpractice.
In sports, so many laurels were won and we have continued to lay emphasis on sports development as part of our physical and leadership training,” he said.
The Principal Senior Secondary School(WOFS), Rev. Azuka Ofordum said professional development for workers has remained paramount to the overall development and upbringing of students of the schools adding that as part of its pursuit for academic excellence, the school has held a training conference for teachers organised by Oral Robert University Education Foundation(ORUEF) in collaboration with Church of God Mission and Word of Faith Schools during the 2015 session.
