OCOGRAM resumes tomorrow … Director of Education says it’s a breakthrough

The Director of Education in the Anglican Diocese of Owerri, Ven. James Onyekwelibe PhD JP, has described the resumption of Obazu  Community Grammar School (OCOGRAM) as a breakthrough to thank God for.
Speaking to Christian Voice recently, Ven. Onyekwelibe said that adequate number of teachers have been recruited to teach the students who have enrolled for classes, 12 years after the school had remained shut.
The Diocesan education director thanked the Supervisory Bishop of the Diocese, Rt. Rev. Emmanuel Maduwike, for his determined efforts towards achieving the feat.
He also expressed gratitude to the Bishop-elect of Owerri, Ven Chukwuma Oparah Ph.D JP who, he said, spearheaded the strategic and technical committee for the resumption of the school as well as facilitated the facelift given to the school to enable a conducive environment for teaching and learning.
“We thank the Obazu Community for their ‘open heart and open gates’ they granted to have the school reopened.
“We also commend, immensely, the untiring efforts commitment and contributions of the Old Boys Association of OCOGRAM towards the project,” Ven Onyekwelibe said.
Also speaking the principal of the school, Ven. Chike Anurigwo, said that  the uniqueness of the school is embedded in its mission statement which is for the transformation of the total man in Christ through enhanced academic, moral, physical and spiritual growth of the students who would constitute the next generation.
The motto, he said, is Lax Lumenque temporum; meaning “the light and glory of all times”.
