PROPRIETOR'S COMMENT
Mr. F.A Otubela, Proprietor

Proprietor The genesis of Lagooz is without doubt, the divine favour of Almighty God. Many Schools evolved through thick and thin but in the case of Lagooz College, it was just an issue of divine providence. This is not to say that it was hundred percent rosy. What I mean here is that its history is not troubled THANKS to God.

Lagooz College was an outstanding proposal that I conceived over a period spanning five years. I committed the planning and actualization to God the author and finisher of all things. Then, I deemed it necessary to start from somewhere. This desire to start something gave rise to the birth of LAGOS ACADEMY an exta mural centre for SSCE, NECO, UME and POLYJAMB candidate. The more I continued with the tutorials, the greater the desire to start a college. It was a struggle between my conscience and me. When I could no longer resist it, I gave in and this metamorphosed into LAGOOZ COLLEGE, the great brain builder. The name LAGOOZ is unique. I decided to borrow part of it from the word ‘Lagos” to represent the location. Today, I am glad to say that the college of my dream has really taken off in a grand style. The strides are result-oriented and the future plans are colossal and excellent.

I am proud of the management team, staff and students. I also appreciate the able parents and guardians who have always answered us.


PRINCIPAL'S COMMENT
Mrs. E.O Otubela, Principal

Principal We started small but never remained small. Just like the little drop of water that makes an ocean, LAGOOZ COLLEGE started with its dream of operating a co-educational institution. This dream was borne out of passion to create a vibrant educational community which is quite challenging and stimulating. Again, it is to serve as a place where a student’s result reflects his or her full academic potentials. This dream became a reality on the 19th September 2005, with a population of 44 students on the first day of resumption. This population rose geometrically due to hard work, dedication and commitment on the part of the management, and especially due to the crop of teachers that God blessed the college with. Even when the salary was so meager, each of them worked relentlessly to take Lagooz to this enviable height.

Though the school is young, yet it has been able to compete favourably with majority of high standard schools in Lagos State. Lagooz students visited AIT Alagbado during the celebration of the Children’s Day on 27th of May 2006. The students were rated the best amongst the 24 other schools that participated in 2007. Girls’ Senior High School organized a Quiz Competition for schools in Lagos State in which LAGOOZ COLLEGE came 2nd. Abibatu Mojgaji Millennium School also held a debate competition on the 1st of March, 2007. Lagooz Students took the 1st position. LAGOOZ COLLEGE also graced the Cultural Day organized by Folbim High School, on the 24th of July 2007. Lagooz Students took the day by their mesmerizing performance. In fact, LAGOOZ COLLEGE has become a household name as a result of their outstanding performances.
