Saint Augustine College Kabba Old Boys Association (SACKOBA) Class of 90 has resolved to execute more projects and donate instructional materials to the college in the future as a way of giving back to the Alma Mater and contribution to educational development in the country.
The resolution was reached during this year’s annual general meeting of SACKOBA in Kabba recently.
The third AGM and reunion held at the conference hall of JIVCO Hotel in Kabba urged members to continue to be good ambassadors of the college and endeavour to attend to the welfare of the less privileged former classmates.
The old boys association also resolved to embark on investment that will boost the financial base of the association in addition to the annual levy and other contributions from members.
They donated a desktop computer system, printer and UPS to the Principal of the famous College, Mr. Emmanuel Femi Abolusoro.
At the presentation, Peter Oye said the Old Boys of Class of 90 had in the past supported their Alma Mater with donation of educational materials and rehabilitation of motorised bore hole for boarding students.
The meeting was presided over by Mr. Peter Oye, the National President of the Association who incidentally was the Senior Prefect of the Class of 90 set.
This year attendance was remarkable as Old boys of the 1990 set from different parts of the country with a mix of ethnic identity were present at the annual event. It was a reminiscence of the social class, cultural and ethnic blend that hitherto existed in the Nigerian public schools of the good old days.
Major activities during the AGM and re-union programmes include; novelty football match between old boys and students of the College, special interactive session, mass service, health and career talk held at the Assembly Hall of the Alma Mater.
Saint Augustine’s College Kabba, a boys only secondary school established in 1958 in the ancient town of Kabba by the Roman Catholic Mission.
The AGM -in- Session thanked the Kabba Community, Principal, management, staff and students of Saint Augustine’s College for making this year activities momentous. Profound appreciation was also extended to all members of the association especially the home-based and Organising Committee for painstakingly putting the programme together.
