Lumen Christi Wins WAEC Award | The Guardian Nigeria News

Lumen Christi International High School, Uromi, Edo State received another Augustus Bandele Oyediran Award for producing the best overall results in WASSCE for school applicants in 2021 in Nigeria.

This is the sixth time the Catholic boys’ boarding school has won the award, having won it in 2007, 2009, 2011, 2014 and 2016.

A letter signed by Moyosola Adeyegbe, Acting Head of Public Affairs on behalf of the Head of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) National Office, Patrick Areghan, which was made available to The Guardian, has declared that the award will be presented to the school during the official opening ceremony of the 70th annual meeting of Council on Tuesday, March 15, 2022.

The letter stated that the event will take place at the Convention Centre, Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja at 12 noon.

The director of the institution, the Rev. Theophilus Itaman, in an interview, said the award will encourage the school and its students to shoot for more outstanding achievements.

He attributed the award to the style of education of the students in the school, saying that they are not only taught academically, but are also morally and spiritually cultivated as required by the church.

Ituman said a child who already has the fear of God is not difficult to nurture.

“So the moral training that children receive by being brought up not just in academics shapes them well enough to excel. We also send our teachers for training to build themselves,” said.
