Namibia envoy charges students on hardwork at school’s graduation ceremony,
The High Commissioner of Namibia to Nigeria, Humphrey Gelseb, has charged graduating students of Universal White Hall Schools, Fagba, Lagos, not to take their graduation for granted but use it as a springboard to success.
The envoy gave the charge at the 18th yearly dinner/award ceremony of the school held at Blue Ribbon event centre, Abule Egba, Lagos.
Gelseb, who was the special guest, commended the students for the hard work and extra efforts they put into their studies to ensure success in their academics.
He said: “When we gathered here two years ago, it was a different era and today too, it is a completely changed world because of the impact of COVID-19 pandemic.
“So, in the midst of the pandemic, it is really noble that the school has put extra efforts to make sure that graduating students had a fulfilling ceremony.”
The envoy expressed appreciation to the proprietor for allowing children from Namibia attend the school, saying it is not easy, given the country’s large population and competition for slots in West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and higher institutions.
Gelseb commended the teachers for their dedication and hardwork, noting that without them, many professions may not be possible.
Managing Director, Universal White Hall Schools, Alexander Ogedengbe, urged the students to put into proper use, all they have learnt and demonstrate good virtues, which is the only tool to open doors.
He assured of his readiness to assist students in choosing a career path, while advising them to know God.
