Vice Principal (Academics)

Vice-Principal (Academics)


My name is Charles Kuhwa. I am the Vice-Principal (Academics) at Olumawu School. I joined the services of this illustrious institution on the 31st of August, 2015. Previously, I had worked in different capacities at Grace Garden International School, Maitama, and Raberto Schools, Wuse II, here in Abuja.

I hail from Vandeikya Local Government Area of Benue State. I am the third in a family of six and I am happily married with a thirteen year old son.

I studied at the University of Abuja where I bagged a Bachelor of Science in Geography (2005). In 2011, I enrolled for a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) at the National Teachers’ Institute, Kaduna where I became certified as a professional Teacher and registered with the Teachers’ Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) in 2012.

In 2016, I returned to the University of Abuja to enrol for a Masters degree in Environmental Resource Management. The program is ongoing.

My desire to teach has been influenced by the need to make the world a better place by imparting in students very strong moral values coupled with a deep desire for learning through self discovery. Therefore, I am an ardent advocate of learning from the “known to the unknown”.

I see myself as a disciplinarian (not in the mould of old though) as corporal punishment is not my idea of a corrective measure. I would rather settle for counselling and leadership by example and other reformative measures such as detentions and community service which are aimed at helping students to change their own behaviour rather than “punishing” them.

My favourite slogan is “live and let live”.

I am a voracious reader and I love watching educational channels on television such as Discovery and Nat Geo Wild. I also enjoy playing and watching football (especially the English Premier League). I listen to a lot of old and contemporary R & B. I am also learning how to swim.

It is my strong desire to give my utmost best to lead Olumawu School to the next glorious height through “Service to God and Humanity” as aptly captured by our School motto.
