ST RITA’S COLLEGE NKAMBE (SARICO) CELEBRATES HER 20TH ANNIVERSARY


St. Rita’s College was born in 1988. on Saturday May 24, 2008, she celebrated her 20th birthday. In 1988, it started in Binju with one department and today, it has six departments.This celebration had as august guest, His Lordship Bishop George Nkuo, Bishop of Kumbo Diocese. This was the third time he was coming to Nkambe in ten days.
The celebration started with Holy Mass at 9am which had as chief celebrant, His Lordship the Bishop of Kumbo and five other priests who joined to concelebrate with him. In his sermon, the Bishop congratulated Students and Teachers for the hard work and good performances during past GCE examinations and also the improvement in their style of singing. He also thanked those who have worked in the school.
After Mass, everybody went to the school premises where they took photographs. It was a good sign that both the administration and the traditional leaders of the Division were present for the Mass and they also participated in all the activities that followed.
All parents and invitees ushered to the hall where they were being welcomed with a song by the final year students of the institution. While in the hall, the Principal of the institution, Fr. Anthony Lawir, welcomed everybody and gave statistics of the school, starting with the number which he said was about 240, dominated by boys. He said as compared to the past years, there have been great improvement on the enrollment. He also told the population that, the best in Accountant in the country was a form student of t SARICO.
The celebration continued with prize giving, where many student were given various prizes in order of merit.
The students also had the opportunity to ask questions to the administration of the institution. Nne of the questions asked by the students was:
Question: Why is it that senior prefects are not given allowances or certain sum to compensate them for the sacrifices made on behalf of the school like it is done in other schools?

Answer: True enough, a hard working Senior Prefect like other school prefectss deserves some allowance. It is only that a school like ours that lives from hand to mouth, always ending the years in the reds due to low income, cannot afford that. However, we always give them token prizes at the end of their reign.

Congratulations to every one at St Rita's college. Its with great pleasure that I, as an ex student read about the college's 20th anniversary.
I did my time between 1994-1999 and sure did make the college proud.
I am equally greatful for all the knowledge i acquired while there.
How i wish i was there to re-live some of the amazing moments we had back in the days.
Good luck to the present staff and students and may God's kindness stay with you all.

I'm happy for all those who are in that school and who tired to give me all the best educational support like Rev. Fr. Anthony Lawir and for the discipline master Mr. Shey i pray that God gives them the energy to do what they did to me to any other student who is in that school. That school has made me know more things. I have being a student there for 4years and I'm proud of it even though i was a not being obedient but now where i am, I'm being good and lovely to every one and thanks to all my technical teacher's; Mr. Solomon, Mr. Mbi, Mr. Mbunkur and Mr. Levinus. Right now in the US i'm no more doing technical education but general education planning to be a future medical doctor or a Lawyer all is in the hands of God. The greatest person i wanna say thanks more and more till i pass away is Madam Hycentha who taught me English language and now is in used and welly used.
