Introducing The IHS Student Engagement Programme

As children grow into teenagers, they are largely influenced and exposed to habits and practices around them. Some of these practices shape and mold  them in both positive and negative ways, as it is widely known.

As a result, the IHS Class of ’97 Association wants to be a part of the positive intervention.

In line with our objectives and as part of efforts to engage our alma mater, grow values, integrity and interact with the current students; the Association is rolling out a student engagement and empowerment seminar/programme for the students of IHS.

From The Alumni Association President…

Fellow Comrades,

It is a privilege to be a part of this great Association.

Despite struggles encountered in registering the Association and also getting to stage our 2016 reunion party; with our cooperation, we achieved all. Now that we have the Association, we need to uphold and strengthen it.

We all have to participate in this drive by working towards achieving our goals. There is no doubt we will need funds to run the Association and our projects but with our collective support and sense of ownership this will not be an issue.

Besides our monthly dues, we will require contributions and donations towards achieving our projects and aspirations as an Association. We, thus, need to start taking our dues, contributions and donations seriously because this is the only way we can call Us an Association.

Our activities to think on this year 2017;
• our 20th anniversary which coincides with the 40th anniversary of our alma mater;
• our welfare concerns,
• one asset project and
• one academic project for the school

We are counting on our understanding and support in order to achieve this and the EXCOs will be calling us from time to time in this regard.

Let us continue to treat each other with maturity and respect as we all come from different backgrounds and see life in different perspectives.

Thank you

God Bless IHS class of ‘97 and its Alma Mata!

Mr. Tunji Fasimoye

President, IHS Class of ’97 Association
