Successful 59th Anniversary, Homecoming and Prize-giving Ceremony
We thank Allah (SWT)for the successful 59th anniversary, homecoming and prize-giving ceremony that took place between 17th and 20th October, 2019.
On behalf of Nabia Naija, please accept our sincere appreciations of your unrelenting efforts in making the school greater and better than ever before.
Our sincere appreciations go to:

Captain Baah, Sagnari Naa Amb. Yakubu Abdullai and many others. The Nabia ladies are recognised for their relentless efforts in contributing their own quotas to the development of the school. Among them are Nabia Christy, Alice Anecham, Georgina Akalanse, Mrs. Millar, Vida Adongo, Nafesa and a host of others.
We followed all the events with keen interest. Thanks to global network that made it possible.
The unveiling of the bust of the former and immediate past Principal was watched with sad emotion. (I met her on 29th April 2018 where the Global President, Cambodia and I held a brief meeting with her in her Office).
One of the great achievements of the ceremony was the identification of the best teaching and non-teaching staff of the great school, NAVASCO. They are:
– Best female teacher, Judith
– Best house mistress, Josephine Apedawu
– Best house master, Charles Akoto McCarthy
– Best male teacher, James Souza
– Best male sports, Michael Nyamekye
– Best female sports, Abugri Emmanuella.
We appreciate the MCE for Meon district that donated some bulbs for street lights in the school.
We have also taken the cognisance of
Prof. Millar appeal for fund. He targeted GHS100,000 @$20,000 towards the development of our great school, NAVASCO though, he had earlier realised GHS116,000.
We commend the efforts of 1979 year group for sponsoring the homecoming programme and so also 1972 year group that planned to construct a new clinic for NAVASCO and to be supported by 1973 year group.
We appreciate other individuals both home and in the diaspora that had contributed immensely towards the development of our great school. Just allow me to name a few and forgive me for those I failed to. The former CDS, Air Marshal Nabia Samson Oje, Nabia Prof. Kutana, Nabia Mr. Kofi Murna, Nabia Isah YY, Ing. Amuna, General ‘Hope’, Iba of Kisi, Engr. Masaud Aweda Lawal, Dr. Alfred Braimah @ECOWAS, Barr. Bankole, Prof. Biodun Ogundayo, Engr. Kola Ogundayo, Engr. Kasali Shittu and many others.
As the 60th anniversary is less than a year today, we are appealing to all year groups, all members of various houses and all great patriots of our school to please start to contribute money towards the great occasion. This is the only school in the Universe that made us great and whatever we are today.
We are expecting delegates from the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and absolutely from Ghana and Nigeria.
Once again, I say a big thank you to all Nabia. I pray Allah to spare our lives to witness the occasion. Aameen.
