We are resolved to empower our students (C-curricula and co curricula efforts) to unleash their creative potentials in becoming agents of change that is true to our mission.

Kwa Falls

This fall is found in Anegeje Village in Akamkpa Local Government Area, about 25 kilometers from Calabar on a good rural road. The sparkling natural waters eternally fall through the mounds of igneous rocks of tropical reminiscence. These are a well arranged staircase of 234 steps from the plane down to the rest place of the cloudy waters. All this is against a typical tropical mangrove forest of Mahogany, Ebony and Spruce trees adding to the undulating landscape that surrounds the fall.

Afi Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary

Formerly part of the Afi River ForestReserve, the Afi Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary was established in 2000 to provide improved protection to important populations of several endangered species including the critically endangered Cross River gorilla, the Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee, the drill and the grey-necked Picathartes or rockfowl. Afi is covered by roughly 100km² of lowland and sub-montane forest with rocky peaks rising to altitudes of 1,300m. Although the steep mountainous slopes of the sanctuary have largely protected it from logging the forest is frequently damaged by dry-season bush fires set to clear new farms or to flush game. Open areas created by fire are quickly colonised by herb species which form an important staple food for gorillas. On the western flank of the mountain is a large grassland roost of migratory European barn swallows, estimated to contain up to 20 million birds at times and reputed to be the largest wintering roost site of swallows in Africa.
