Grundtvig International Secondary School, Oba, Anambra State, has emerged the Overall Best Private Senior Secondary School in Nigeria in the 2020 President’s Teachers’ and Schools Excellence Awards. The keenly contested award began at the state level, with each state of the Federation nominating their best schools for the national and final stage of the contest. The award, which came with a brand new bus, was presented to the School at Abuja on 5th October as highlight of the events marking the World Teachers’ Day.
We dedicate this award to the power of ideas that inspired our founder, Dr Kachi E. Ozumba (1942-2011), to plant our Grundtvigian school in our State; to the staff, students, parents, alumni, organisations, friends and well-wishers who have all joined hands to ensure that this Education-for-Life plant he sowed continues to grow, blossom and bear healthy fruits; to our State Government for its courageous and encouraging educational policies.
Yet, as we all know: “All we can do is nothing worth unless God blesses the deed…”.
