EREMON SENIOR HIGH TECHNICAL SCHOOL
Nothing in this world is done without an ulterior motive. Eremon Senior High Technical School was establish with the aim of training the young ones to became socially desirable, self-employed. Since it is the vision of government to bring up the youth in this manner, the community in its small way is aiding to realize this vision.
Policy makers, for that matter, in Education, aim at bringing Education to the doorsteps of the people. This is demonstrated by setting Schools in the remote communities. Eremon Senior High Technical School is technically bias and it is suitable for a community of this nature, that is more handy in their activities than theoretical.
- SCHOOL CREST AND MOTTO:
The School crest is in a shield form, with lighted candle dividing it. To the right side of the shield is an open book. This portrays the knowledge one can obtain from books as a School can not operate without the use of books.
To left hand side of the shield is a hammer and a spanner. These indicate the ability to use tools to earn a living. It further shows that much work in a technical School is handy (practical).
Below the shield is the self explanatory motto – EDUCATION FOR A LIVING. Even though one needs academic excellence to be enrolled in this School the practical ability is also paramount. In a nutshell this is what the School crest wants to tell us.
