IGS president canvasses return of school to owners

The National President, Ibadan Grammar School, Prof. Charles Aworh, has said the standard of education will continue to fall until schools are returned to missionaries.

Aworh said this on Thursday during a press conference marking the centenary anniversary of Ibadan Grammar School at the school auditorium.

He noted that the last 40 years had witnessed continuous decline in infrastructure, teaching and learning environment.

He stressed, "The takeover of schools by government and the resultant problems of poor funding and retrogressive government policies are inimical to the delivery of quality education.”

He said if schools were returned to the original owners, it would not only address the problem of decay in education but would also ensure sustainability.

Aworh said IGS was founded in 1913 as a Christian School in the best tradition of the Anglican Church.

He explained that the institution, in the 100 years of its existence, contributed to manpower development more than any other secondary school.

He said, "The old students are determined to reverse the trend of decay in our school and restore the years that the locust had eaten.

"We have also embarked on an ambitious school development initiative, including major infrastructural development projects aimed at producing an environment conducive for teaching and learning.”

Activities lined up for the celebration are a visit to orphanage homes, anniversary lecture, Jumat service at the Central Mosque and Centenary Commencement Service at the school hall, among others
