The 1988 set of Government College Lagos Old Boys Association (GCLOBA), over the weekend, donated 100 pieces of furniture and 2,000 exercise books worth N4.2 million to their Alma mater.

In addition, the old boys also doled out N30,000 cash reward each to three best students in science, art and commercial subjects.

Mr Mayorkun Oresanya, Coordinator of ‘GCLOBA 88’ said the gesture was to support the school and give back to their Alma Mater 30 years after graduation from the school.


“We look at things that are lacking in the school and we found that there is no furniture for the students so we decided to give the school 100 sets of furniture and 2,000 copies of exercise books.

“We gave the furniture to the students that are about to write terminal West Africa Senior School Certificate (WASSCE) because of the need for the students to write the exam under a more relaxed atmosphere and comfort.


“We are also preparing scholarship award for a student who is suffering dyslexia as a learning disorder that involves difficulty reading due to problems identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words (decoding).

Mrs Omolade Teru, the principal of the college, who received the items commended the old boys for their kind gesture and support towards improving the standard of learning at the college and acknowledged the timely rise of the old boys to the needs of the school.

“I am really excited for this kind gesture and I am extremely happy that you have chosen to give back to the school after 30 years. Some years back, when our students are preparing to write WAEC exam some sets like yours have also come to our rescue.

“Even when inspectors came to our school from Alausa, they always ask us what magic was in getting old boys to all of these and I told them it is the work of communication with our old boys’ association,“ she said.

The principal said that through the support from the old boys association, the government was able to admit about 400 boys into the school this session.

Teru said the schools had been adjudged the best-disciplined school and also scored 81 per cent in WAEC in 2017.

“When we were short of teachers, it was the old boys association of some sets that came up and provided teachers for us,” she added.
