Dear Parents and Friends,
I trust that you are well. After an eventful and very fulfilling few days we are fast heading towards the conclusion of the academic year.
Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS to all the Year 12 students who graduated last Saturday…it was a magnificent event attended by our founders, Mr and Mrs. Ovia, Board members and other notable guests. Our graduates were impeccably dressed and looked befitting in their academic gowns for this august ceremony. The awards were abundant and wonderful surprises were in the offing such as, all graduates were offered full scholarships by the Jim Ovia Foundation to study at any Nigerian university. This was greeted with rapturous applause – it will certainly be a day to be remembered for aeons! More news to follow soon…
Secondly, the second JHC Careers Fair was a success with overseas and local university and foundation schools fairly represented. Year 9, 10 and 11 parents and students thoroughly enjoyed the plentiful information on offer as well as insightful interactive discussions with the special guests. Once again, we are grateful to all involved, let’s make next year even better!
A gentle reminder that our Annual Prize-Giving will be held next week Thursday, 11 July 2019 and we will start at 10.00 am sharp.
In conclusion, ‘The power of youth is the common wealth for the entire world. The faces of young people are the faces of our past, our present and our future. No segment in the society can match with the power, idealism, enthusiasm and courage of the young people.’
Here is wishing you a happy terrific Tuesday until we meet again.
Abraham P. Swart
