Corona College of Education, Ilupeju held its first virtual matriculation on June 13, for the first cohort of the Advanced Diploma in Early Childhood Care Education for 2019/2020 academic session.

The Provost, Dr. Martin Obinyan, in his welcome address, congratulated the students for being the first set in the history of the college to hold a virtual orientation and matriculation.
He said due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the college had moved its lectures online using virtual learning platforms and other online resources.
He said: “I sincerely salute the commitment and passion of the Corona Schools Trust Council and the Management for the growth of this great College. I must confess that this multi-dimensional support from all stakeholders has been responsible for our continued determination to making the College one of the best performing Colleges of Education.
“We recognise that in our bid to achieve world-class status, the quality of our students is an intrinsic point of the equation which accounts for the high diligence and premium we place in teaching and learning.”
Obinyan assured the students that the college would do well to provide them the best learning experiences through the use of educational technologies and therefore, expects all students to make the best of the unique learning opportunities now available to them while also respecting the rules and regulations of the College as they remain focused in their studies.
