The Diocese of Lagos West (Anglican Communion) has taken another step forward in her commitment to improving the quality of education in Nigeria as the Lord Bishop, Rt. Revd. Dr. James Olusola Odedeji on Monday, 13th December, 2021 dedicated the second phase of Samuel Adegbite Anglican College, Idimu, Lagos.
The mixed school, established over three years ago was a donation by the Samuel Adegbite Foundation. Since then, the Diocese has invested heavily in a bid to make it a leading school in Lagos State, providing not just academic but moral education.
The second phase of the project dedicated consist of ten (10) Classrooms, one Big Library, Staff Room and Office.
According to the school Principal, Venerable OlaOluwa Adeyemi, the idea of the second phase project was borne out of the need to address the growth in students population, and the Diocesan was gracious enough to grant approval. The project was funded by the Diocese and it was supported by the Samuel Adegbite Foundation.
Among other dignitaries that graced the event were, Dr Olutoyin Okeowo, Chairman Board of Governor of the school, Mr. Wale Adegbite of Samuel Adegbite Foundation, Ven. Ebenezer Adewole, Dean of the Cathedral, Arc. Babington, parents, students and staff of the school.
When asked about what’s next? Ven. Adeyemi said, “with the Diocesan’s backing, the school will soon overtake many of those established long ago”.
