School (Stella Maris Schools, Abuja) contemplates varsity at 20th anniversary

He spoke in Abuja during a Cultural Day event organised as part of activities to mark the school’s 20th anniversary.
Other activities of the anniversary included inter-house sports, alumni cocktail, gala night, alumni friendly match with students and a thanksgiving service.
Anyaene said the school remains committed to knowledge, excellence and discipline.
He said: “We have actually grown from 
grass to grace. It’s been 20 years of challenges, opinions and structure, but we thank God today that the school has been upgraded from what it was when our late mother left it.

“So 20 years from now, the school might grow into a higher institution. We are very prudent people and we are a bit conservative. At the moment, we have five schools and one more is coming up which will bring us close to about 4, 000 students.
“We have won several awards as the best school in FCT, and recently third best school in FCT. We have a name and we also learn from our competitors. We are not there to win trophies but celebrate excellence.”
He said this has been possible because of the school’s policy to engage qualified teachers, pass disciplinary actions when necessary and train them regularly for best practices.
In his remark, the principal, Mr Jacob Dawodu, recalled that the college started September 24, 2001 with only 17 children and 13 teachers, adding that it has grown to 543 pupils at present.
