Pro Unitate
Message from Sheila Everard (Founding Principal 1973 - 1980)

"Please accept my good wishes for the success of the FGGC Owerri Alumni Association.  The internet has enabled those of you all over the world to keep in touch and those who join will find companionship from old friends and also give you an opportunity to help your old college.

School days may seem a long time ago to some of you but I hope that you all have happy memories and have found that what you learned at FGGC has helped you in life’s journey. Those of you who were there during the early days may find some of the pictures I have attached of interest.  It was an exciting and fulfilling time for all pioneers. You helped to establish the traditions; your Association will help to keep them alive: I hope that the present and future generations will also be proud of them."

Message from M. et Mme Keke (French & English teachers)

Thank you all beautiful ladies, our ex-students of FGGC Owerri now residing in the United Kingdom and all over the world for remembering us, your former teachers.

You are now married with children and either working or doing one business or the other -thus rendering service to humanity where you reside.

We are proud of you and your achievements in the world. We remember our days with you as young girl students of FGGC Owerri. We were with you from September 1976 to January 1984 when we left on transfer to FGGC Abuloma in Rivers state.

You were good girl students, studious, respectful, disciplined and looked forward to a fruitful future at home and abroad. You achieved your aim at FGGC Owerri i where you passed your WASC exams with distinctions and pride, without resorting to examination malpractice now rampant in Nigeria.

Now that you are married with children and working all over the world, remember your alma mater and nation and continue to behave with honour and decorum. Furthermore, respect your husbands and bring up your children morally, academically and in God fearing ways.

Keep the FGGC Owerri flag flying high all over the world where you reside and work, god bless you all – amen.

Your ex- teachers, Monsieur (Ezinna) B. C. Keke and Madame (Ezinne) Patricia N. Keke

I extend my very warm wishes  to you all around the world and you are welcome to call on me whenever you are in my area. God bless you all.”
