The Old Boys Association of Saint Charles Grammar School, Oshogbo, Osun state, has demanded for the return of their school back to the Catholic Mission, which founded the school.
Charlean Rotimi Aluko, National President of the association, during a press conference held as part of events to mark the 59th Founder’s Day, stated that there was urgent need to reposition the school in line with the dreams of the founding fathers.
“Quality education is a combination of many things and not just erecting or renovating structures; it includes the provision of good learning ambience which many of our stanzas have been doing.
“We are meeting with the relevant stakeholders to help come up with strategies that can help improve the standard of education in the school.
“During our time, the school was known for academic excellence but now the standard has fallen. We want to know what the problems are. We will try whatever we can to make sure the school move from its current state of zero performance to 100 per cent,” Aluko said.
He expressed optimism that the meeting with principals, teachers and parents would yield lasting results.
According to Aluko, the Old Boys Association will also be meeting with the Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola soon, saying that the return of the school back to the Catholic Mission will be one of the demands that will be tabled before him.
