New blood needed in teaching profession – Westminster College

By Elizabeth Uwandu

Johnson Barovbe, Director, Westminster College, Lagos, has called for the infusion of young, dynamic and competent people into the teaching profession, noting that it would amount to injustice if students were taught using the old method. He made the call during the school’s 16th anniversary recently.

Present at the valedictory service/graduaion ceremony were Prof. Joseph Abugu, Prof. Esther Obiageli Ugoji, Mrs Emoubo Goodie Ibru, HRM De Wheno Aholu Menu-Toyi I, the Akran of Badagry Kingdom, Rev. Prince Ufford, acting Chairman, Parents-Teachers Association, and his wife, Mrs Judith Ufford, among others.

At the event Owhojeta Oghenetega clinched the best graduating student in academics award, having scored 267 in the just-concluded JAMB exam; Tini Oyinugha bagged the neatest graduating student, and Miss Great Ufford, was awarded the most active graduating student. Chief Barovbe attributed the success of the school in terms of moral and academic prowess, to restructuring and the appointment of young, active vibrant staff  that included Mr. Famous Imemesi and Miss Victoria Efedi, as principal and vice-principal respectively, as well as a new English Language teacher.
