26 FEB, 2015. The St Louis Nursery and Primary School in Akure, Nigeria celebrated its 40th anniversary on February 3. Several events were organized to celebrate the anniversary, including a novelty football match between the male and female members of staff, a quiz where 10 other schools were invited to participate, a cultural dance, a thanksgiving Mass, and a cake cutting ceremony.
When it was established, it had only 45 pupils and five members of staff - two teachers, two class assistants and the headmistress, MacNaosa McConville SSL RIP. Over the years, the school has expanded significantly, and now has 736 pupils and 97 teaching and non-teaching staff. It has now become a household name and the desire of every parent within the Akure metropolis, who wants an unbeatable standard of education and the highest level of social and moral training for his or her wards.
