Our Lady of Apostles Private School, Yaba.…

Our Lady of Apostles Private School, Yaba was established in January 1950 by Rev. Sr. Scholastica McAndrew of the Missionary Sisters of Our Lady of Apostles. The School was founded in response to the insistent request of parents, many new to Lagos, who wanted their children taught through the medium of English.

Originally, the present site had been acquired and developed by the Catholic Mission for St. Agnes Teacher Training College in 1933. In 1949, St. Agnes Teacher Training College was transferred to a new site, off Ikorodu, the present day "Maryland". Meanwhile, St. Agnes as a description remained, and is even retained within the vicinity and precinct as the present St. Agnes Bus stop just before the present day St. Dominic's Catholic Church premises, Yaba (itself having been known as St. Patrick's). Sr. Liam and Sr. Benignus succeeded Sr. Scholastica McAndrew in 1956, while in 1969, Mrs Osugo Helen was appointed headmistress. Sr. Mary Martin Healey was made supervisor in 1973. In 1991, Sr. Gladys Chikere succeeded her while Mrs. Okobi was transferred from St. Mary's Broad Street to become the headmistress.  Sr. Maura Hayes took over in October 1994. Sr. Monica Onwunali became the supervisor in July 1999 and she handed over to Sr. Lucy Otusanya in 2002.  Sr. Beatrice Okoye assumed office in January 2008 and was succeeded by the current supervisor, Sr. Valentina Adeyemo in September 2011.

Since inception, the school has continued to flourish and expand in response to the local demand. For the past sixty-two (62) years, the school has been a stepping stone and has continued to produce reputable men and women in the different spheres of life in the society. The school have dedicated and enthusiastic staff to her credit.  Our Lady of Apostles Private School, Yaba is known for her moral and academic excellence which we still maintain through the thick and thin of the educational system.

His Eminence Anthony Cardinal Okojie, Archbishop Emeritus of Lagos, the former school Proprietor was ever supportive, ensuring at every point that the school maintains the standard it is known for.  With our motto "watch and Pray", the sky is our limit.
