Grange School, a co-educational private school in Lagos, has planned a year-long celebration to mark its 60th year of providing education to young learners.
The school was first opened in September 1958 as a primary school to provide standard education akin to what is obtainable in the United Kingdom for children and young adults between the ages of four and 16.
According to a statement from the school, the celebration will commence on October 30 with the unveiling of the 60th-anniversary logo.
Among the anniversary activities are a book launch, career lecture, musical concert, diamond jubilee inter-house sports and “an array of interesting and educative events which will bring together all concerned stakeholders as well as past student and staffs”.
Commenting on the anniversary, Guy Cassarchis, headmaster and chief executive officer of the school, said: “We are proud of the legacy our school has established over the 60 years; and as much as the school is keen about the culture of continuous improvement, we are even more excited about embarking on the journey of providing 21st century quality education which inculcates global learning standards while also taking into considering the local community in which it is taught.
“I am really excited to let you know that Grange School students produced the best IGCSE results in Nigeria this year. Also, twenty – four Year 11 Grange students registered for the ICE Award; eighteen students achieved distinction, six students achieved merit which again places Grange School, Lagos on the top of the ladder amongst other International Schools in Nigeria.
“We at Grange School will stop at nothing to ensure we keep the flag flying by ensuring we continually and innovatively support our children to become the best in all areas.”
