History

Historically, St. Columbanus Secondary School a.k.a (SCOSSI) was established in 1959 when she was insignificantly instituted by the St. Patrick Missionary Fathers, Kiltegan (SPS), initially as Boys Grammar School. During the initial course of her growth, the School witnessed and experienced many turbulent times and years of sorrows, very particular and memorable are the havoc wrecked by the Nigeria Civil War that humanly speaking, completely brought this great name down. Next was her experience under the maladministration of the state government, which rendered her dormant or non-functional.

With the initiative of the Former Governor of Akwa Ibom State. Architech Obong Victor Attah to handover mission schools to the real owners, SCOSSI was blessed to be one of these schools handed over to Ikot Ekpene Catholic Diocese in 2007. The church in her vision and mission for her schools, constituted a body with the name Diocesan Education Commission (DEC) with Rev. Msgr. Inyangetoh as the Pioneer Chairman, followed by Mother Iwoh, H.H.C.J. The present chairman is Very Rev. Fr. Justin Udofia. This body was to look after revamping, resuscitating and re-directing these already ruined schools including SCOSSI.

With the choice of the administrators of this second phase of Missions´ outreach, we can confirm that academics, spirituality, morals and discipline were the church´s visions and missions propelling SCOSSI to renewed prominence. Hence, the title of this write-up: the Rebirth and Growth of St. Columbanus Secondary School Ikwen under the missions. Our stewardship is self suggestive. The work is divided into five sections. Section one briefly deals with the historical settings and initial take-off by the first missionaries. Section two views and exposes the conditions of SCOSSI after the civil war and the gradual take-over by the State Government. Section three looks at the second phase of the Mission Administration: the Rebirth of SCOSSI. Section four examines the present state of challenges. Section five finally brings to what could be known as SCOSSI´s Mission Statements: Forward ever Backward never- The four cardinal points of SCOSSI Agenda.
