I am here to encourage you to be focused, determined, strong, inquisitive, bold, creative, versatile, studious name it, be the best at whatever choice of discipline whether science, commercial or art variety is the spice of life, blend into whatever situation, environment or circumstances you find yourself. Am a product of science but while I was here i won miss Gracewell for 2007/2008 academic session I also bagged the social prefect the preceding year; I can go on and on. The essence of the whole story is to make you work hard at every point bearing in mind that a true scholar or a qualified scholar is a rich blend of take for instance fruit juice, would you rather take smoothie a blend of raspberry, pear, blackberry, plump, or just mango juice. Cause variety is the spice of life.
It doesn’t matter the class you are in whether by choice or your parents made you do it, try to be the best among equals we are the leaders of tomorrow because gwellites can’t afford to fail… thank you.”
