It was a sweet reunion and celebration of achievement for Ibadan City Academy Old Students’ Association, Class of 2000, as we converged at the St Mary Event Center Ibadan, in commemoration of our 20th anniversary.
It also provided an avenue to donate and celebrate teachers, as outstanding ones were presented with awards for positively influenced and instilled discipline in us.
According to the Chairman of the Association, Dr Dare Agboola, the event was a successful milestone and series of events to bring more unity among the alumni but also a good opportunity to now prioritise giving back to alma mata.
“Thus as part of our given back to the institution, that has made us great and transform our life, we will be launching the donation of 60 White boards with markers to the institution and we do hope it will not end there”, chairman said.
The program featured award ceremony for some of the teachers which includes Mrs Aderoju who was the set coordinator and Mr O.K Akadri.
Five white board and markers with magnetic dusters were donated by the alumni and they also pledged to do more in other to meet up with our target of the sixty units of the board.
