Great IHS Class of ’97 Compatriots!
We appreciate everyone who showed up in 3D on Saturday, 26th August, 2017 for the IHS Class of ’97 Lagos Hangout (previously announced 14th August, 2017) from the Interstates and Lagos State, despite various other engagements and commitments. Thank you great comrades for believing and representing the dream and vision!
The IHS Class of ’97 Hangout Crew observed one minute silence for one of Us, Mr. Timi Idiare who lost his Dad, announced yesterday on the IHS ’97 Whatsapp Forum. Our Dear Timi, Please accept our heartfelt condolences on the passing of your Dad. We pray God’s comfort for you and the entire family at this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May Paps’s soul rest in peace. Amen.
It was a great time at the Hangout to meet and put names to our pretty and handsome selves, play catch up, hang out, share and unwind together…🍻

Brief Highlights of what members discussed;
●IHS Class of ‘97 Association is not some but A Whole Lot More of Us

●We are urged to participate more and encouraged to pay membership dues of N1000 monthly and also make contributions so we can execute projects
●We are more than an online chat group, we are real people and we want Us to meet, network and interact with each other in 3D!
●The Grand Ikeja High School 40th Anniversary Celebration coming up October 2017
●Ideas and Suggestions for Our IHS Class of ’97 20th Anniversary Reunion coming up December 15th & 16th 2017
