Igbanke town, Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo State, will be agog come Saturday, April 20, as old students of the prestigious Igbanke Grammar School, will reunite in a colorful reunion.
The old students will also launch a new block of classrooms during the gathering, which will be attended by the state Commissioner of Education, senior public servants, politicians, among other dignitaries.
Already, the school is wearing a new look as preparation for the mother-of-all-reunions, which is expected to gather the Who-is-Who in both Edo and Delta states, gets underway.
Chairman of the Steering Committee, Mr. Jacob Erhabor, said in a statement that the event is expected to reunite old students from the 1972 through 2018 sets.
He enjoined all old students of the school to take advantage of the event to catch up with old classmates and old friends.
Also on Saturday, April 20, the Igbanke Unity Forum (IUF) will present school furniture to all 13 primary schools at Igbanke, Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo State.
IUF Co-founder, Mr. Collins Edomaruse, said in a statement that the furniture would be officially presented to head teachers of the schools by the state Commissioner of Education at the main field of Igbanke Primary School, Igbanke.
Mr. Edomaruse, a former editor at THISDAY and Publisher of METROWATCH Online newspaper, said the IUF, a FaceBook-based non-profit and non-political organisation, was founded three years ago.
With membership strength of about 4,000, the IUF was founded to primarily address the education needs of all Igbanke children schooling at both primary and secondary schools in the community.
In November 2017, the IUF printed and distributed branded books to all students of the three secondary schools in the community.
