He advised them to be moderate in their conducts, concentrate on their studies and be good ambassadors of the school, families and the society.
Similarly, some parents advised the school authorities to adopt strategies that would promote reading culture.
The schools’ Administrator, Pastor Joseph Esedion, described “education as a key to growth and development of any society.”
He said: “The idea of career programme is to bring together young people to share ideas with professionals.”
