DEMISE OF MR. BALOGUN

It is with sadness but with submission to the will of God that we bring the news of the passing on of Mr. Balogun.  He was the Treasurer of the Parents Teachers Association.  He died after a brief illness at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.  We take consolation in the fact that he lived a wonderful life and was very supportive of all school activities.  He will be greatly missed.  We will continue to keep you abreast of details of the funeral arrangements as we consult with the family.  May his soul rest in perfect peace with the Lord. Amen.
