FUTA Staff Secondary School Celebrates Outstanding Students at Founders Day Anniversary
The Staff Secondary School FUTA has celebrated its outstanding students who performed excellently in the West African Senior School Certificate and National Examination Council Examinations (WASSCE/NECO) at the Founders Day Anniversary Celebrations. While congratulating the awardees, the principal, Mrs. Folake Adekanmbi, commended the efforts of the teachers and said that without them, there cannot be FUTA Secondary School. She said the school had attained enviable feats both within and outside the state due to the hard work, diligence and doggedness of both staff and students. She also commended the parents for their support and cooperation towards providing material resources needed for training the students.
The Parents Teachers Association (PTA) Chairman, Deacon Sam Aroge also appreciated the efforts of the parents, students, and their teachers who through thick and thin raised the students whom he described as the best he had ever encountered. He further pleaded with the awardees to know what they are doing, as the award IS a challenge for them to do more, for themselves, their parents and the society at large.
Awards and gifts were presented to 56 out-gone students with 5 distinctions and above in 2023 WASSCE/NECO examination. The first 3 students with the highest grades include: Ogidan Olawolemi with 6As and 3Bs, Fabiyi Olarenwaju with 5As, 4Bs, and Abe Ifeoluwa with 5A 3Bs.
Speaking on behalf of the Awardees, Ogidan Olawolemi and Oguntunde Goodness appreciated the efforts of the teachers which they said can never be underestimated. The duo attributed their success to personal development, discipline and the grace of God. They advised students to work hard believe in themselves and set well defined goals, and to also pay proper attention to their teachers while in the classroom.
Thereafter, 24 Prefects, 4 hostel prefects each, for both the boys and girls hostels, and 25 Students Representative Council Members (SRC) were sworn in for the 2023/2024 academic session.
FUTA Secondary School was established thirty one years ago, on the 16th of November 1992
