The old students of Unity School Agbarho, in the Ughelli North local Government Area of Delta State, have renovated the administrative building, a block of four classrooms and a block of 12 toilets, for use of male and female students in the school.
The graduating class of 1984 unveiled the administrative building while the class of 1981 unveiled the block of four classrooms.
This was disclosed in a statement on Tuesday by the Public Relations Officer, Unity School Agbarho Old Students’ Association, Joseph Otejere.
Speaking during the unveiling of the project, the Commissioner for Secondary Education in Delta State, Rose Ezewu, commended members of the USAOSA for the projects.
According to her, the project will go a long way in improving the conditions of learning of the students of the school.
On his part, USAOSA President, Mr Dan Agbofode, said the intervention would lay a foundation for enduring “collaborative partnership among the association, the Delta State government, Agbarho community, the Parents/Teachers Association, concerned private organisations, and staff and students of the school.”
He said the association had renovated two blocks of hostels and a residential block for use by the National Youth Service Corps.
He appreciated members of the association, especially those who contributed to the renovation of the project, and also Chevron Nigeria Limited who helped in renovating one of the hostels, a block of 12 toilets and equipped the science laboratory in the school.
According to him, such a gesture will help return the school to its “glory days when it was a centre for academic excellence in the present day Delta and Edo states.”
