The Alumni of St. Charles’ Grammar School, Osogbo, Osun State is set to hold its bi- annual convention from February 21 to February 23, 2014 at the school premises. Tade Adekunle, social secretary of the group and the managing director, Keskese, a Lagos based marketing firm, disclosed that the convention would afford the old students the opportunity to reunite after a long time.
Adekunle noted that the convention offers participants a platform to discuss issues affecting their Alma Mata with a view to providing solutions and interventions by the old students as part of their contribution to the great school. “It will be a thing of joy for the old students from the 1965 set to meet and join the current set of students and contribute their own quota to the development of the association. The convention is a prelude to our 8th international convention that will hold in United States of America in August later in the year,’’ he said.
He announced that the convention will open formally with a welcome re-union cocktail that will hold at the Regina Suites, Osogbo on Friday February 21, 2014 while the convention proper will hold on Saturday February 22 at the main auditorium of the school from 9.00am. Adekunle noted that the activities of the convention will include the report of the last two years by Tayo Orekoya, the group’s central president, reports of the other various committees as well as the election of new executive council.
