There's school spirit then there's Calabar school spirit. For the past 106 years, Calabar High School has consistently produced athletes, scholars, titans of business and men dedicated to public service. Last Saturday, Calabar Old Boys gathered for their annual reunion at the Mona Visitors' Lodge.


The 2018 Calabar Old Boys' Association (COBA) dinner and awards honoured individuals who have made a significant impact on the nation, dedicated service to their alma mater and have excelled academically. Master of Ceremonies Mike Fennell, Calabar class of '52, enthralled the attendees with his sardonic sense of humour and historical facts about the school. Commissioner of Police Major General Antony Anderson delivered the keynote address, “Crime Fighting for Nation-Building”, and, as MC Fennell said, “raised the bar on the level of conversation” about crime. Also, a number of Lions (what Calabar alumni are called) were conferred with special awards.

COBA is dedicated to the furtherance of Calabar's excellence and the group is “upbeat and optimistic as its work over the past years is steadily bearing fruit”.

Here are some highlights of the event.
