MR ADELOWO'S TENUREÃ‚Â AS PRINCIPAL
Having inherited a school with a strong foundation in all spheresÃ‚Â of academic, sporting, moral and discipline, the major task ofÃ‚Â Mr. AdelowoÃ‚Â when he took over was to consolidate the gains. The physical facilities were fairly adequate, the curriculum was well developed and the students were disciplined. He embarked on a rapid expansion in students enrollment. For example, as against the double stream per class that he met the school classes were increased initially to three streams and then later to four. This allowed for greater admission opportunity for those seeking admission into the school.
Of significant importance was theÃ‚Â year 1968, the year of the Silver JubileeÃ‚Â of the school, when the school was approved not only to run the Higher School Certificate Course (HSC) in both Arts and Science subjects, but also to be an examination centre for the course. He engaged more teachers to enable effective teaching of both the lower and the higher school students.
STUDENT ENROLMENT AND STAFF STRENGTH
Mr Adelowo broadened the admission policy of the school and by 1976 the students population had been trebled to approximatelyÃ‚Â a thousand students from 350 in l966Ã‚Â in Mr Osanyin's time. Although increased, the staff strength was however not commensurate with the students enrollment.
