Always remember to work hard as you have worked hard to say goodbye to secondary school.

“In one of our proprietress speech, she says “Run with your vision,” in another she says “Do it right.” The sky is not your limit but a stepping stone to your career in life. Always remain hungry to achieve your dreams and do not relent in your studies, work hard and put God first in everything you are doing in order to achieve your dreams.”

With mixed emotions, saying goodbye to MDS, the outgoing prefect, Ayanwunmi Blessing gave her speech, she said, “Today I’m faced with the hard task of delivering the most difficult speech I may ever have to make.
