Handing over the items today, the secretary of the set, Mr. Jamiu Salahudeen Ayinde, said their package might appear small but they had a good intention of making their contribution no matter how small to the school which he referred to as their foundation.
Ayinde remarked that many members of the set were still trying to find their feet in life adding however they wanted to start somewhere.
He assured they were poised to accomplish more for the school while urging the principal, Mrs. Ayodele Bello, to encourage students graduating from the school to involve themselves in the activities of the old students in later life.
“What we have presented is small but if you consider the fact that we passed out a little over ten years ago with many of us still struggling to leave higher institutions or secure gainful employment then we have acted to the extreme of our capacity.
“The school, which at our time, bore the name Ogbomoso Grammar School (Snr 3), remains our foundation and whatever anyone of us becomes today we can’t erase the impact of this school.
“We are doing the little we can do now, we promise to do more. We quickly rallied to buy these chairs when we learned the school was building a hall, and chairs are needed. We would have loved to execute the concrete flooring of the hall but it is beyond us now, so, we decided to do what the few of us that could rally ourselves could do.
“Ma, we appeal to you to help us encourage students who are currently graduating from the school to participate in the activities of the old students later in life. It is a thing of joy to give back to the society no matter how small.”
The principal, Mrs. Bello expressed gratitude to the set for their gesture submitting it was the beginning of good things in the school.
She added, “The school is a young school (it came out of Ogbomoso Grammar School in 2003) so the old students are relatively young but what your set has done we appreciate. We hope it will encourage other sets. Thank your colleagues for us we wish you the best in life. We will look forward to more.
“The school has continued to grow in size but we lack facilities, we will look forward to interventions by the old students.”
