The Chief Executive Officer of Aerofield Homes Limited, Armstrong Akintunde who also doubles as the Chairman of 92/98 set of Old Students Association of Christ Apostolic Grammar School, Iperu, has stressed the need for the old students to give back to their alma mata.

Akintunde made this call on Saturday during the 25th anniversary and reunion of the 92/98 set of the school, fondly called ApolloGrams.

The old students used the occasion to hand over to the school’s newly renovated block of four classrooms and offices.

Akintunde said “In a way, we can’t separate our greatness from this school and that is why we have deemed it fit to have a get-together 25 years after our graduation.

“We want to see what we can also do to move the school forward because we know that the humongous challenges in the education sector should not be left for the government alone. We all should see it as a point of duty, especially as old students to give back to these schools that played very significant roles in what we have become today.”

Former Deputy Speaker, Ekiti State House of Assembly, Mr Orisalade Taiwo, who is the National President of the Old Students Association, Christ Apostolic Grammar School, Iperu, said, “The government can’t do everything, I want to commend the efforts of the sets that are celebrating this year, both the old students and the parent-teachers associations all have their roles to play in developing education in our society.”

Speaking during the occasion, the Principal of the Senior session of the school, Mrs. Bintu Onasanya, said, “I am so happy seeing this happening during my time, the projects you have donated are so magnificent.”
