King’s College inducts 487 students
King’s College (KC), Lagos State, has inducted the new set of junior secondary and senior secondary students into its fold for the 2016/2017 academic session.
Principal of the college, Mr. Anthony Oluseyi Thomas, who spoke during the matriculation, assured parents that the new students would be transformed through the machinery of the college in the next six years.
He said, “While we promise to offer your children the quality in our kitty, they must individually be concerned and deliberate enough in their activities to be able to cut the identity of a real King’s man.
“Every product has an input, throughput and output. Your current self is the input and your end product is to become a king’s man, while the college machinery is the throughput,” he stressed.
Anthony said there were over 6,000 entries in the National Common Entrance Examination in which over 1,000 students met the requirement, but less than 500 students were admitted due to the capacity of the college.
This academic session, he said, the college admitted 459 students into JSS 1, 600 into JSS2, and 22 into SS1.
He admonished the students to work hard and enrich their moral account by living a life full of discipline and responsibility.
Also speaking at the event, the guest speaker, Mr. Olayomi Gbolahan, Chief Executive Officer, Equipment Hall Limited, who is also an alumnus of the college, commended parents for bringing their children to the school, which has produced many prominent professionals.
