Feeling elated about the honour done to the school, the proprietor Reverend Edith Okubanjo in an interactive session with newsmen announced a scholarship award for the genius pupil to last till she finishes her secondary education.

Reverend Okubanjo advised parents to always create time for their children and not only run after money, noting that the formal education of every child cannot be left in the hands of the school alone.

Father of Anjolaoluwa, Mr. Olufemi Botoku who is a lawyer and former French teacher expressed happiness that his daughter made such an achievement thereby bringing honour to the family.

Also speaking with newsmen, Anjolaoluwa Botoku who is currently in Primary Five, said she decided to write the exam following a challenge with her siblings who wrote the same examination.

Miss Botoku canvassed for a review of the age of eligible candidates for the WASSCE to be less than the thirteen years age limit.
