FR HYGINUS Epunam, alongside the Parish Priest of St John the Baptist Catholic Church, who is also the manager of Community Primary School, Ubuluisiuzo, Ihiala Local Government Area, Anambra State, Very Rev. Fr. Felix Umegboro has charged pupils to see education as the key to success.
Fr. Epunam stated this in his sermon during the thanksgiving Mass which was conducted in respect to the graduation, held recently at St John the Baptist Parish, Ubuluisiuzo, Ihiala LGA, Anambra State.
Fr. Epunam expressed gratitude to God for the gift of life and thanked the headmistress and the teachers for the sacrifices they are making as the school is gathering strength. He prayed for more wisdom and understanding for the pupils to excel.
The graduation ceremony, which took place at the school premises, attracted priests, the traditional prime minister of Ubuluisiuzo, Sir A.O Mbanaso, President General, Chief Sunday Mbaukwu, among others.
The headmistress of the school, Lolo Fidelia Obi, said that Community Primary School, Ubuluisiuzo, was the earliest school in Ihiala Local Government Area, established through the instrumentality of the missionaries and Timothy Nnabuife.
According to her, “the school is teaching as required by the government and people from far and near the LGA come to register their children and wards in our school. “We have so many activities going on in the school which include, computer training and sports, among others.”
Chairman of the occasion, who is the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Anambra Newspapers and Printing Corporation(ANPC), publisher of National Light , K O Di Taa and Sportslight Xtra, Chuka Nnabuife, described the school as one of the oldest schools in Ihiala LGA, “the best of all and as our own, some of us were once like you because this used to be our school. By my own count, this school has produced many state Chief Judges, Igwes, commissioners, professors, among others who attended the school”.
Sir Nnabuife while charging the pupils not to be seeing the school as a small school but as a school that has name and the fear of God, noted that school is not all about getting certificate. He urged them to have good attitude to prove that the certificate they receive is in character and knowledge.
Father of the day, Sir Wilfred Ozoigbo, appreciated everyone present, saying, “this is our school and we are one of you. I am so happy to return to my school and see those who by the grace of God, have the opportunity to be here now.” He prayed for the pupils to be greater than those who schooled before them.
Mother of the day, Dr. Dorothy Emedosi, encouraged the pupils, particularly the graduating pupils to see the importance of education, urging them not to drop from school.
Chairman, Parents Teachers Association of the school (PTA), Sylvester Mgbe, said he was very happy for the way the children are learning and appreciated the school headmistress, managements and staff of the school for their untiring efforts in the school.
High point of the event was the presentation of Chimere Ndimkoha as the king of the school and Favour Asoegwu as the Lolo of the school, as well as cultural dance and other special presentation by the pupils.
