CLARET ACADEMY ENUGU HOLDS MAIDEN GRADUATION CEREMONY
…Launches Claret Alumni Time Capsule, School Magazine
On 16 October 2021, the Claret Academy (Secondary) School Garikki, Enugu celebrated her maiden graduation ceremony. The day’s event began with a solemn Eucharistic celebration presided over by Fr. Cletus Obasi, CMF who represented the Provincial Superior, VRF Simeon Nwobi, CMF while Fr. Joseph Amaegwu, CMF gave the homily.
The day was indeed filled with wonderful displays by the students, honorary awards to the principal Mrs Agwu and the PTA chairman Mr Okafor (both of them may be leaving the school/office soon) and special exotic awards to the graduands. The Student who won the Fr. Christian Ihedoro’s Award for Best Graduating Student went home with a travel box and cash of N10,000… thanks to our sponsors. There were eight other similar awards.
The school also used the occasion to launch the Maiden Edition of the “Claret Champion” magazine and Yearbook as well as the Claret Alumni Time Capsule. Speaking to our reporters during the ceremony, the school director, Rev. Fr. Matthew Mmuo, CMF stated:
We have kicked started something at Claret Garikki called ‘laying of the time capsule’. Each graduand writes a letter to himself or herself in the future. We laminated the letters and sealed them in a container that can endure decades. The container is buried in a prepared hole …The target is that they will come back and open it up at the silver jubilee of the school (19-20 years later) effete they will read it to themselves again… God keeping them and us alive. It was really awesome to think about.
One of the sponsors of the awards, Fr Chrysanthus Ogbozo, CMF praised the school director and his team. In his words:
“That’s an excellent outing by Fr. Matthew and Team. Congratulations! They’ve worked hard to make the day glorious for all and it turned out so. As shown on the school’s yearbook, the Claretian Education scheme/policy ought to be holistic and continuous; the seed sown in our primary schools must be made to continuously grow and be stronger in our secondary schools/ academies and finally come to maturation in our dream university- the Claretian University of Nigeria.
It would be recalled that Claret Academy Garikki was recently approved by the Federal Ministry of Education to conduct West African Senior School Certificate Examinations. With the trajectory of academic and extracurricular performances the school is set for greater achievements.
