Old Students donate N500,000 to Alma Mater
By Kelvin Ohoror
The Old Students Association of St Michael’s College (SMC), Oleh has donated N500,000 as part of their efforts aimed at rebuilding part of the fallen perimeter fence of the school.
Presenting the N.5 million cheques in the principal’s office at the school premises, the pioneer set led by Hon. Evans Egbo stated that the donation was made towards addressing the worrisome security situation of the school.
He said on behalf of the home and diaspora branches of the 1988-1993 class deemed it fit to identify with the school and make the donation to complement the school efforts geared towards the rebuilding of the damaged fence.
He noted that the Association will always identify with the school in its developmental efforts, particularly aimed at creating a safe and conducive environment for teaching and learning.
The Principal Mrs Onojerame Bridget described the donation as a remarkable feat and promised to deploy the fund judiciously towards the set target. She then solicited the teacher’s and the Old students’ support to move the school to an enviable height.
The principal further said that the school has the highest population in the area and is prone to student vices but promised to engage the services of vigilante and anticult members to stabilize the school.

Addressing the current students, the team of the Old students charged the students to be dedicated to their studies and not to indulge in acts capable of destroying their future such as cultism and get-rich-quick syndrome in vogue involving rituals, as indulgence in such and other negative vices will only attract generational curses.
The students were also admonished to shun the deceptive idea that education is a scam, adding that without education, no student can make good a leader.
The SMC Old Students charged the current students to always be submissive to the school authority’s tutelage, respect their teachers and other constituted authorities and never to develop hatred towards any of them just as such attitude will hamper learning.
Members of the SMC Old Students Association home branch representatives who were in attendance include Sir Hon. Evans Egbo, Amb. Daniel Okpozih and Mrs Peace Agbidi
Also present at the brief event were Mr Daniel Oghoghovbe, Vice Principal, Academics and Mr Emmanuel Alaita, Vice Principal, Administration.
