The Kosa History and Memory Lane
According to Nuhu Mohammadu Bayero, the then Dan-iyan Zazzau, the founding Headmaster of the school which Later developed into what is GSS Kuru today, the conception of the school was expressed in a letter in December !939, when the then Plateau Provincial Education Officer, Jos, Mr. F. D Hibert, wrote to the Zaria Provincial Education Office asking for a good and qualified Teacher to be assigned to start a Senior Central School in Pankshin
Following his success in an interview. Mallam Nuhu Bayero, as he was addressed left Zaria by train for Pankshin via Jos on 15th April 1940, only to discover on arrival that the buildings of the new Central School were not yet completed. It was in April 1941 one year after that the school was finally ready for occupation. On 1st April 1944, the school was redesignated as the Plateau Central School, because the students were drawn from the five Divisions of the then Plateau Province which were Pankshin, Jos, Jama‘a, Wamba (Southern) and Shendam Divisions.
