It has become a tradition for schools to end academic sessions ceremoniously. The College Demonstration Secondary School ,DSS, held the 5th edition of the Academic Ceremony/Speech & Prize Giving Day on the 23rd of July, 2019. The ceremony could also be said to be a graduation party, because the chief celebrant are the graduands.
The chief organiser was the Principal, Mrs Kingba Amoniya Onyiemekehia, with support from College management and the teachers. It was a beautiful ceremony with many activities such as song renditions, drama presentations, choreographic displays as well as lots to eat and drink.
The graduating students came dressed in academic garments. Some of them already looking like undergraduates.
The event was also marked with lots of speeches and goodwill messages.
Awards were presented to the graduands and distinguished students moving to higher classes for best in the various subjects. Teachers and staff of the school who distinguished themselves one way or the other were also rewarded with awards.
