The Principal of Government Secondary School, Fadan Kaje, Victoria Aluwong says the intervention of the school’s Old Students Association in the area of infrastructural development has improved students’ academic performance in the school.
The Principal made this known, while giving an update, on the performance of students of the school at the Annual General Meeting of the school’s Alumni, held on Saturday in Kaduna.
According to her, the students’ performance in Mathematics and English at the West African Examination Council (WAEC) has improved by 90 per cent compared to 65 per cent in 2019.
The Principal, who was represented by Peter Bako, Head of Vocational and Technical Department, attributed the success to the intervention of the school’s Alumni, who provided conducive learning environment for the students.
The President of the Old Students’ Association, Bala Tokan noted that on assumption of leadership, the association executive noted that the school was in a bad shape with dilapidated structures, inadequate staff and books.
He said that the students’ performance was poor with almost 90 per cent failure in Mathematics and English, “which was a complete departure from the glorious past.”
“On noting this, we supplied books to the library and effected structural work on the leaking roof of the library and fixed broken glass windows,” he added.
The President commended the Kaduna State Government on the ongoing comprehensive renovation of hostels, dining hall, assembly halls and other structures.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that awards were presented to six deserving old students, who had contributed to the success of the school.
