55 year old Anambra Secondary school decries erosion menace, infrastructural decay

By Okechukwu Onuegbu

The Principal, Comprehensive Secondary School (CPS), Nawfia, Mr Christian Ezeamaku has solicited for the help of government, Non-Governmental Organisation (NGOs), Parent Teachers Association (PTA) and old students association of the institution to rescuing  the school from erosion menace, infrastructural decay and manpower.

Ezeamaku, who spoke at the CPS’s golden jubilee cerebration held recently, lamented that most of the school building such as technical workshop, principal’s, teachers and staff quarters were old, dilapidated and in need of urgent replacement or renovation.

According to him, erosion menace forced the school authority to build a barricade towards Nawfia boundary and a big gutter at Umuokpu axis to reduce the tempo of flood into the school but it still persists.

“It might be surprising that some of the technical equipments we have now are those used by Mr Moore and co (the pioneer technical teacher of our school). We need modern technical equipment. This school founded as Anglican Technical Secondary School still offers many technical subjects. We therefore plead with the governor to include or consider us during distribution of equipment and posting of technical teachers,” he added.

The Principal, while commending the Old Boy Association of the school, the school proprietor (Anglican Communion, Awka diocese), government and other interesting individuals on their various contributions, appealed for more assistance to moving the institution forward.

Orient Daily recalled that Comprehensive Secondary School, Nawfia, formerly known as Anglican Technical Secondary School Nawfia, opened for academic activities in 1962. The school at its 55 years anniversary which drew some decreme la crème members of the society including its erstwhile students, governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state and Bishop Alexander Ibezim (Bishop of Awka Diocese, Anglican communion) and others who were bestowed with special honours and awards.
