ST GRE­GORY’S COL­LEGE’S 90TH AN­NIVER­SARY

THISDAY Style - - CONTENTS -

Re­cently St. Gre­gory’s Col­lege, La­gos cel­e­brated its 90th an­niver­sary. As part of ac­tiv­i­ties to mark the oc­ca­sion, a new science li­brary and 12 lab­o­ra­to­ries was launched fol­lowed by a friendly foot­ball match by the stu­dents of Ig­bobi Col­lege and St Gre­gory’s Col­lege. There was also a lec­ture and prize giv­ing. The alumni of the Col­lege have con­tin­ued to main­tain the school in such a way that it had main­tained it shine over the decades. Till to­day, it re­mains one to the best kept schools. A gala night and din­ner was later held in the evening. The cel­e­bra­tion was de­signed to rec­og­nize the progress the col­lege has made over the years. Thank­fully some of its old stu­dents are still alive to wit­ness its glo­ri­ous re­turn and the re-es­tab­lish­ment of its sa­cred val­ues and cher­ished prin­ci­ples. The Catholic Mis­sion was also able to pro­vide re­source­ful and com­mit­ted teach­ers to grows the seeds of to­mor­row’s Nige­ria.
