Mr. Olise-Emeka Nwachukwu: Chairman 60th Anniversary Planning Committee

Wow! Finally, we are here!! Indeed, it has been a long journey. 60 years! 6 decades!! God has been incredibly faithful.

Thinking about it, celebrating a landmark year like this (60 years) for Birch Freeman High School is also celebrating the mercies, goodness and favour of God over our lives collectively and individually irrespective of our status. Some of us lost colleagues and friends while in high school and after high school in different phases of our lives but here we are experiencing the 60th Year of God's awesomeness. Glory to God!!!

Planning this great event has been a long journey too but guess what “Still the same God, with the same Story and the same Glory”. The planning experience reect the lyrics of the song: “Through it all, through it all. I've learnt to trust in Jesus, I've learnt to trust in God. Through it all, through it all. I've learnt to depend upon His word”.

We saw the faithfulness of God in another dimension. Certainly, there were times we felt like throw in the towel because it looked bleak at those times but through the tunnel walk, God was and is right there walking and working with us. Those were JUST TIMES but GOD created time, hence time in itself is subject to GOD.

I will like to appreciate our facilitators for the Art Workshop, Career Masterclass and Discussants; The Dean of the Faculty of Art, Yaba College of Technology and his Team who anchored the Art Workshop for the Junior School.
