The LCCN Deaf Centre Academy Jimeta, Yola has achieved yet another dimension in term of growth and development as the centre has, this August, successfully graduated its 3rd batch of Students with Disabilities.
This development was disclosed to Inclusive News Network (INN) by a staff of the centre, Musa Saleh, who could not hide his excitement on the magnificent giant strides recorded by the centre within a short period of time.
Speaking to INN correspondent earlier on Friday morning, Saleh noted that the “LCCN Deaf Centre Academy Jimeta, Yola, was established in the year 2010 within the LCCN St. Monica Cathedral Jimeta, Yola by Rev. Mrs Ruth Paul Ulea, with the aims of giving better quality education to Deaf and other children with disabilities especially those who dropped out of school”
According to him, “In 2023 the school has graduated her 3rd set of students which comprises six (6 ) from the senior secondary school section, three (3) from the junior secondary school level and five (5) from the primary school level respectively”.
Saleh added “the school being in its nascent state has a small population of over 78 students and is blessed with 10 hardworking staff who are working diligently everyday to impart qualitative education to these vulnerable children”
The school INN reports, is not a boarding school as it is the norm in most of the centres established to cater for the children with disabilities across the country. It is an inclusive system, a day school with wide acceptability of students from all categories of faith as both Muslim and Christian students were enrolled in the centre.
Interestingly, the colourful graduation ceremony organized by the centre in honour of the 3rd set of graduands was graced by who is who in the LCCN family, staff of the centre, parents of the graduating students and their relatives as well as some members of the society who thronged the venue of the event to cheer up the students.
