It was a display of Igbo culture at Bubendorff Memorial Grammar School Adazi-Nnukwu, as the school reintroduced cultural day celebration which ceased to exist in the school since 1980’s.
The cultural event commenced with a pontifical high Mass presided over by the Auxiliary Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Reverend Jonasbenson Okoye.
The cultural day featured many activities including musical performances, cultural dance, drama, coronation of Igwe Bubendorff Memorial Grammar School and launching of a book written in Igbo language titled Obi-Echina among others.
Speaking on the essence of the day, the manager of the school, Reverend Father Theodore Ekwem re-echoed the need for the revival of Igbo culture, Igbo language and cultural heritage.
Father Ekwem regretted the level in the decline of Igbo language, and called on stakeholders to join forces in bringing to life, the dying Igbo language and culture.
