After successfully providing qualitative education to young teeming Nigerians in the last 25 years, one of the nation’s renowned schools, Corona Secondary School, Agbara rolled out the drum recently to celebrate its silver jubilee.
 
]The two -day event witnessed the school’s annual Speech and Prize Giving Day set  aside to celebrate students and members of staff for their excellence, achievements and good conduct all through the previous academic year as well as the inauguration of the school  as a ‘Pasch-Schule’ of the Goethe Institute.
   
In attendance were the Consul General’, German Consulate, Mr  Ingo Herbert,  and Director, Goethe Institut, Lagos. Mrs. Friederike Möschel.

Addressing reporters on the school’s exploits in the last 25 years, the principal,  Mrs. Chinedum Oluwadamilola said the school has stood  tall over the years  by maintaining its culture of excellence among staff and students, evidenced by the quality of results and graduates it has produced over the years. 
   
“Corona Secondary School is the only post primary school of Corona Trust Council, and being a Trust,  the ownership structure is different. The school does not have a proprietor so every teacher is a stakeholder and we always bear this in mind in whatever we do.  

Besides, it  does not spare any expense in training the workforce, in providing facilities for the schools. There is this culture of continuous improvement. That is the major reason the secondary arm and others have maintained their record of excellence over the years.  
As at today, people who have worked here for over 15 years are almost 50 per cent. There is continuity and that is remarkable. We have people who started from inception  and are still here.” 
   
Reeling out some of its achievements over the past 25 years Oluwadamilola said continuous improvement and commitment have helped thus far.
