Re: IHSOSA-IHS @40 ANNIVERSARY SCHOOL HALL PROJECT GROUNDBREAKING HELD SATURDAY, 7TH OCTOBER 2017
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a step and the way to get started is to start doing…
Further to previous posts, the unveiling and groundbreaking for the commencement of the IHSOSA-IHS@40 School Hall Project was conducted yesterday morning, Saturday, 7th October. 2017 on the IHS school premises.
From the IHSOSA-IHS@40 Planning Committee;
Most of us alumni agree that Ikeja High School (IHS) offered more than what obtained in any average public secondary school at those times, often, leading us to wonder if we were actually attending a public school. We all relish that nostalgic feeling when reminiscing our most memorable moments in school, always priceless. Our prayer is to continue to hear positive news about our school.
As our alma mater, Ikeja High School is 40years this year 2017, our objective is to herald a new future,
- to unify all existing IHS Old students’ alumni chapters to form ONE formidable alumni body without affecting the status quo in the chapters
- to give back to our alma mater, Ikeja High School starting with the commemoration of IHS @ 40th Anniversary with IHS School Hall Project
After meeting with the school authorities, a “School Hall” topped their list, which is one major facility that the school had always lacked. Consequently, approval has been given for the conversion/renovation of the reading room (former library facility) and store room to the IHS School Hall and is the IHS 40th Anniversary Project and is the Priority ‘A’ Project for the School.
As has been communicated to the various sets, in order to make the IHS@40 project and programmes a reality each set is to contribute the sum of N1million while for starters the upfront sum of N250,000 be made available by September 2017 for funds to be available to drive planning for the anniversary project and programmes.
Please note: All sums collected from individual members should be remitted to IHSOSA main account in the name of the Set only. Kindly indicate IHS Set Name in the reference/ narration field
We intend delivering the Ikeja High School Auditorium latest by the end of November 2017 before we all switch to the December holiday mood and we can only achieve this feat with the participation of all alumni.
The school management and students are hopeful for the reality the IHS School Hall Project by the Joint IHS Old Students’ Alumni and what a great difference it would be! From years and years of sitting under canopies in the heat, sun and rain weather conditions for the various students educational programmes and activities and look forward with brimming optimism to a school hall that facilitates and encourages meaningful learning and proper assimilation for the various student educational programs, seminars/activities in the coming years.

The IHS 40th Anniversary Planning Committee encourages us alumni to align with the central vision to give back as a Unified One to our alma mater, that first gave to us and appreciates the efforts and contributions of the various sets thus far and appeals for our continued efforts and donations in making the IHS @40 School Hall Project a reality and see it through and commemorate 40 years of our great alma mater, Ikeja High School!
The IHS 40th Anniversary School Auditorium /Hall Project completion target date is set for November, 2017
God Bless Ikeja High School
