NIGERIA?S OLDEST GRAMMAR SCHOOL CLOCKS 150
« on: April 26, 2009, 09:42:23 AM »
THE president, Old Grammarians? Society of the CMS Grammar School, Lagos, Maj.-Gen. Babatope Williams (retd), has said that the nation?s school system will experience the desired turn around if old students join hands to rebuild their alma mater.

OGS is the association of the old boys of Nigeria?s oldest school. It was founded on June 6, 1859.

This was contained in a statement issued by the OGS and signed by the publicity secretary of the association, Mr. Ohi Ojo, at a meeting to intimate the public about the activities lined up for the 150th anniversary of the school in Lagos.

According to the statement, Williams stated that Nigerians had a lot to do to raise the academic and infrastructural standard of public schools in the country.

He enjoined wealthy Nigerians to go back to their old primary and secondary schools and look for ways of helping them to develop.

On the activities lined up for the anniversary scheduled to start with a procession on May 29, 2009, Williams said an invitational inter-schools football competition would be played among prominent public schools in Lagos.

The tomb of the founder of the school, Rev. Thomas Babington Macaulay, who also was the first principal of the school, would be unveiled.

He added that a highlight of the celebration is the anniversary lecture to be delivered by an Old Boy, who is also a former Minister of Education, Prof. Babatunde Fafunwa.

The lecture, he said, would take place on June 5. Former Head of State, Chief Ernest Shonekan (GCFR), a former pupil of the CMS, will be the chairman, while Lagos State governor, Babatunde Fashola (SAN) will be the chief host.

The anniversary will end with a thanksgiving service and dedication of the newly completed school chapel on June 6, 2009 after which the 150th Founder?s Day Luncheon will be held.

The Minister of Labour and Productivity, Prince Kayode Adetokunbo and other prominent Nigerians will grace the occasion.
