What remains outstanding for me while Kuru aside the main studies was the school choir with Papa Louis: the spirit lifting Christmas Carol and the school song.
The motto of the school “Discipline and Hardwork” almost made me change my mind as I was welcome with a serious punishment for no offense committed. But to the glory of God, we are human beings today due to the discipline and perseverance while in the school.
I can say without an iota doubt that over 70 percent of my set mates are doing well in their respective places of endeavors and interestingly, we have people spread across almost all the professions: Medical Doctors of diverse areas, Engineers, Legal practitioners, Rev Father, Clergy of various denominations, Social Scientists in various Ministries, Departments and Agencies, Business Tycoons and all shades of human endeavours.
Kuru is blessed with a reservoir of abundant human and material resources that has impacted greatly in the scheme of things at the state, the country and globally.
Few difficult punishment and discipline that I went through include but not limited to:
- Locked up in cupboard from 6am to 9am
- Hanging on the wall for about an hour with burning leathers below.
- Smoking styles for hours.
- The general beating and rough punishment we experienced made of us to be resilient to life difficult moments.
Time and space will not avail me reel out my life experience in Kuru but it was a worthwhile experience and it remains indelible in my life.
