Lourdes College Celebrating 50 Years

OUR GOLDEN JUBILEE

Our Lady of Lourdes College, an all girls' institution, first opened its gates to students in 1963 for a five year secondary catholic education experience. Since then thousands of students have streamed to the school which has grown to include a two year high school program.

As we join the students, ex-students, parents, teachers, the Proprietor and well wishers to celebrate this huge milestone, we count on your continuous support in making this institution the best it can be for our children and the girl child.

Preparations for the Golden Jubilee celebrations are well underway. An Executive Steering Committee has been put in place to guide us through this journey. The team is made up as follows:

General Coordinator: Principal of the College Rev. Sr. Ndidi Anozie
Chairperson: Professor Theresa Nkuo-Akenji
General Secretary: Mr. Rojen Nfon
Financial Secretary: Bursar of Our Lady of Lourdes College
Treasurer: Assistant Financial Secretary of the Archdiocese

Various Sub-committees, led by chairs, have also been created and co-opted into the steering committee as members to take on specific tasks. Click here to see full list of sub-committees and chairs. Stakeholder (PTA, LESAns, current students and LES) members have been co-opted into the various sub-committees to take part in the preparations.
