The Diocese of Lagos West (Anglican Communion) has taken another step forward in its commitment to improve the quality of education in the country.
The Lord Bishop, Rt. Rev. James Olusola Odedeji, Monday December 13, 2021 dedicated the second phase of Samuel Adegbite Anglican College, Idimu, Lagos.
The mixed school created more than three years ago was a donation from the Samuel Adegbite Foundation (SAF). Since then, the diocese has invested heavily to make it a leading school in Lagos State, not only providing academic staff, but also contributing immensely to moral education.
The second phase of the project includes 10 classrooms, a large library, a staff room and an office.
According to the school principal, Venerable Olaoluwa Adeyemi, the idea for the second phase of the project arose out of the need to respond to the growing student population.
He revealed that the diocese has partnered with SAF to fund the project, adding that with this support the school will soon surpass many of those established long before it.
Some of the dignitaries who graced the event were the chairman of the school board, Dr. Olutoyin Okeowo; the representative of the Samuel Adegbite Foundation, Mr. Wale Adegbite; Dean of the Cathedral, Ven. Ebenezer Adewole; Babington, parents, students and school staff.
