The Alumni Association of Oshodi Comprehensive High School says plans are underway by the group to build a N250 million e-library and multipurpose hall for the school.
Mr. Ganiyu Hamsat, the alumni President, disclosed this on Sunday at a ceremony organised by the association in Oshodi, Lagos to mark the school’s 39th anniversary.
Hamsat said: “Our plan is to have a three-in-one project for our school. That is why we are building the e-library, multipurpose hall to advance the learning processes in the school.
“The library will contain 100 of both junior and senior students at a time. That is 50 – 50 on both sides.
“We discover that students hardly lay hands on books to read nowadays. That is why we are embarking on the projects to help the student’s learning processes.
“And we are sure that it will help the students to learn and further improve the standard of education in the school as both JAMB and post-JAMB examinations are conducted electronically.
“The e-library will be like a resource centre where the junior and senior students can make research academically and globally.”
According to Hamsat, the association is liaising with the Lagos State Ministry of Education to ensure the three-in-one project becomes a reality.
“All necessary papers have been acquired to start the project. The modeling is ready, both architectural and structural designs are intact.
“The next thing for us now is to raise funds for the project,” he further said.
The Chairman of the Anniversary Planning Committee, Alhaji Kolawole Ajani, said the projects would go a long way to assist the school in teaching and learning.
“This is a huge project and we are ready for it to make our Alma Mater a great citadel of learning,” Ajani said.
An alumna, Ms Olabisi Sonusi, said that such laudable projects would help to improve learning in the school.
According to her, both the e-library and multipurpose hall will help the school academically and administratively.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the school was founded on Sept. 7, 1981 with Mrs. Safurat Ajao as the pioneer Principal.
The first set, which comprised 230 students, graduated in 1986. (NAN)
