CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF MORAL AND ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

It gives me great joy to welcome this great assembly of eminent and distinguished personalities. We sincerely appreciate your presence and lots of thanks to you for honouring our invitation inspite of your busy schedule; this attests to the great support and importance you extend to Ranjennys Schools. Thanks to you all for making this memorable day possible.

Three decades ago, Ranjennys Schools opened her gates to the public with the aim of producing multi-talented leaders that will go out in the world and make her proud. The school started with a focus on vocations and restorative practices to engage and develop her students by addressing their social and emotional needs, bringing out the best in each students and providing equal opportunities for all. Our motto "Leaders of tomorrow" is at the fore front of everything we do and we aim at not just imparting knowledge to our students but to also inculcate in them the spirit of leadership.

The goal of any school is to provide students with a strong foundation which comprises of knowledge, life skills and character building. These are the primary tools for success in life. This is never an easy task of course, but Ranjennys schools rose to the challenge 30 years ago and continues to address that challenge today. We embrace character building and all round education not as an essential part of it. The curriculum we teach is undoubtedly filled with opportunities to engage our students in character building in accordance with the acceptable norms and values of the society. We think on how to engage our students and hold their attention for a lesson to be productive and with the constant question, "How do we ensure the students actually absorb what is taught? We continually upgrade our teaching aids and techniques as well as our academic programme. Perhaps this little quote from a great poet could help me explain what Ranjennys schools has done since I joined the Ranjennys family as a pupil and as a teacher.

According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail" From available records, Ranjennys High School has turned out fourteen (14) batches of successful students at the WASSCE and NECO Examinations. Since her inception. These three decades, the school has been welcoming students irrespective of tribe, sex, religious or state of origin and continues to provide superior liberal education at an affordable tuition fee.

Our students centered learning strategies together with the national curriculum approved by NERDC with an additional scope, challenges all our students to reach beyond academic success to match the achievement in technology and globalization.

The achievements of the school speak well of her team of dedicated and caring teachers who have worked hard and will continually explore creative and innovative ways to engage the students and equip them to complete favourably in a globalized world.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE: A GATEWAY FOR EDUCATIONAL SURVIVAL OF STUDENTS

The greatest of all gilts given by God to man is language. Surprisely, language is something we take for granted. The common believe is that it is simple and natural. However, this assumption is wrong. Language is extremely complex, highly abstract with infinite productive system.
Despite the complex nature of language, it is inseparable from man. This is because language plays a central role in human existence. Human beings obviously, will not survive without language. The reason is not far-fetched. In all human endeavours, language is employed either overtly or covertly. The expression of one’s knowledge altitude, values, emotions and feelings will be practically impossible without language.

The English language, which is our focus here, serves the same purpose. It is a world language. Majority of the countries of the world has English as the official language. Any nation that sees the need to belong to the global village aspires to acquire at last some basic English. In Nigerian for instance English which is the official language exists in a diglossia relation with the number of Nigeria languages estimated to be about 400, several of which are mutually unintelligible to their different speakers. Most natural speakers of Nigerian languages only have full linguistic knowledge of their language. The English language in Nigeria, therefore, serves as a unifying force among divers ethnic groups with different languages.

The gateway to the future of our children and indeed the nation at large depends heavily on the acquisition of English language. All subject taught in schools are taught in English. One can see that the ability to learn the sciences, the social and sciences and the arts requires necessarily at last some basic English. Our textbooks are not let out. All textbooks in all subjects at all levels are written in English.

As students who are preparing for a brighter future through education, you need English more than any other single subject. The Nigerian educational System lends support to this belief. From the primary school through secondary to the tertiary levels, the need for English is usually emphasized. Our students who are leaving secondary school must be informed that a credit in English is a pre-requisite for going further. This is so for all subjects’ combinations and programme-arts, science and social sciences. You may have all the required credits to enter a University or a college of Education or polytechnic but without English language, you may not. Especially in the case of University Education, a credit in English language is a must for whatever course you intend to read. The entrance examination into University – the University Matriculation (UME) must include English language in all the subject combinations. All the instances cited above show the centrality of English in our efforts towards education.

Whatever our attitudes to and skills in the English language are, collectively or individually, we need language for close and wider communication to ensure our future in all walks of life. Our students need the language more than anything else to climb up the ladder of post – secondary education.
