LESANs worldwide join the PTA, students, family and friends to celebrate Lourdes College turning fifty. The Golden Jubilee is a historic milestone in the life of this prestigious institution. From when its gates opened in 1963 it has been a center of holistic education for the girl child. Created by the vision of Fr Nabben and run by the Holy Rosary Sisters, we are lucky to call ourselves its Ex-Students.
Preparations for the Golden Jubilee celebrations are well underway. An Executive Steering Committee has been put in place to guide us through this journey. The team is made up as follows:
General Coordinator: Principal of the College Rev. Sr. Ndidi Anozie
Chairperson: Professor Theresa Nkuo-Akenji
General Secretary: Mr. Rojen Nfon
Financial Secretary: Bursar of Our Lady of Lourdes College
Treasurer: Assistant Financial Secretary of the Archdiocese
Various Sub-committees, led by chairs, have also been created and co-opted into the steering committee as members to take on specific tasks. Click here to see full list of sub-committees and chairs. Stakeholder (PTA, LESAns, current students and LES) members have been co-opted into the various sub-committees to take part in the preparations.
The official kick-off took place at the school in Bamenda, Cameroon on January 28th 2012: mass was celebrated by the Archbishop of Bamenda, His Grace Cornelius Fontem Esua and chaired by the Governor of the N.W. Province.
The Grande celebrations will take place at the school in January 2013.
