    oooh so many memories of this assembly ground… kneeling under the sun on the assembly ground; hiding under the lockers to avoid going for assemblies; fapping berets for assembly; throwing our berets in the air on our last assembly; pretending to be a Muslim student to avoid Friday assembly…. good times.
    BTW why is the admin block looking so dilapidated?

    Some of the girls at the back of the assembly will end up in beret-less home if they still call it like that. That is to say, enough plate washing in the kitchen and missing one or two lesson periods.
    *sigh* so many memories.
    Those days, it seemed 6 years will never end. I thank God sha.

      Yeah rite, with their dilapidated buildings and over-populated classrooms. Just riding on past glory. I can never send my daughters there.
      Instead of making noise, the OGQC should do something abt that school. FAST

      Excuse me but how is reminiscing about your alma matter now equivalent to riding on past glory? Did anybody make any comparison between QC. And other schools ? Or are you one of those burnt ppl from other FGC’S

Anyways proud of my alma mata! …We forward press not backwards turning that is our torch more brightly burning and may yet pass on and on foreeeever!!!!

    I like Ezinne’s jumpsuit. Btw, is this the QC? Why do they look like this?

    March 12, 2014 at 2:42 am

    But peeps are funny sha. Your school does look dilapidated and being advised to collectively do something about the place that formed you makes one a ‘hater’? Is that what the seriously overhyped QC taught y’all? Puhleeze! Oh, and for the person saying QC is an FG school yadiyadiyadi, ever heard of endowments? I’m sure QC molded lotsa made-women today. Put your money where your mouths are and buy some pots of paint for your alma mater. You already have too many manolos! And yes, I’m no QC girl!, Thank God!

      You have a point, those buildings do need a coat of fresh paint. However QCOGs (especially the older generations) regularly raise funds for renovation of the infrastructure. For instance i know the gate and entrance area were done by old girls.
      I wonder whose idea this change of school uniform was though. Not good at all.
      One more thing though…..I’d like to see pictures of your secondary school 😉

    There is happy feeling to reminisce over ur alma mata. I went to Sagamu and till today, stil proud I did. It groomed me into d woman I am naw. Recently during our reunion, we discussed and donated to help renovate d sch building,(eventhough it doesn’t rele need dt much touch up) Without bin biased, wht Chiara said is d truth, d buildings are nt sights to behold of a federal college. No matter hw little, u guyz shld help mk a change.

    I like this. Love that she wore blue. QC was a great experience in my time, unfortunately I don’t think the present students are getting the same level of grooming and tuition. We really need to do a lot about our educational system in Nigeria. The glory days are gone….

    Reading these comments bring a lot of memories.

    QC girls though…I can’t stop laughing. I’m a proud one any day.

    I came online searching for old girls of Queen’s College who would like to be a part of a mentorship project this September and I stumbled on this.

    Thanks to Aunty Bella!

    As much as the school needs to develop its infrastructure, the mind of the Queen’s College Girl needs to be developed. The QC Girl of today needs to be mentored. As in, seriously…
    Who else can mentor these girls but the great ladies and women who have passed through this school?

    Let us take this opportunity to STAND UP and DO SOMETHING.

    Whoopi Goldberg said,
    We’re here for a reason. I believe a bit of the reason is to throw little TORCHES out to lead people through the dark.

    What more can I say…

    Let us BE THE LIGHT for a QC Girl

    Pass On The Torch Still Brightly Gleaming…

    Please get more info on how you can be a part of this project by sending a mail to [email protected]
