By Jon Egie
House patrons in the Oharisi primary school 40th inter-house athletics competition held recently have continued to extend their support to the pupils and staff of the school.
Wednesday, March 5, the duo of Chief Ejiro Erhenede and Hon Ovoke Oshasha, patrons of Blue and Red Houses respectively visited the school to indicate their support for the school.
The patrons who were unavoidably absent from the event with apology were treated to a warm entertainment by the staff and Head teacher of the school.
The Head teacher, Mr Enayemo Vincent expressed gratitude to the patrons for their contributions at the success of the inter-house sports in spite of the short notice.
He expressed appreciation to the Father of the Day, HRM Oharisi 111, Ovie of Ughelli and Dr Steve Oru for their very important representation and donation during the event.
He said the school will soon set a day aside for the pupils to pray for all the patrons of the Houses so that God will prosper their businesses “and God will hear the prayer of the children” he enthused.
Responding on behalf of the visiting patrons, Hon Ovoke Oshasha returned thanks to the school authority for counting them worthy to be appointed as patrons of Houses in the school.
He said having travelled far and wide; he agrees with the adage that East or West, home is the best and hence assured that the patrons will continue to do their best to assist the school.
The patrons then motivated the school authority by donating cash gift of N20,000 to the pupils in the Houses and N20,000 to the school .
Earlier, the patron of Yellow House, Chief Pius Ovbije (POC) also showed commitment to the development of the school when he visited to celebrate his House’ victory at the sports event.
