Oxbridge Tutorial College showed once again, why it is often referred to as the premier sixth form college, by virtue of its ingenuity and innovativeness, when it hosted all members of staff and college Advisory Board to a retreat; the first of its kind for the college on the 14th June, 2014 in Amber Residence, Ikeja GRA Ikeja. The gathering was privileged to have the Managing Director, Dr (Mrs.) C. O. Ogunsanya, the Principal Of the college, Ms. Carol Scott and the Chairman of the Advisory Board, Mr. Tope Toogun in attendance. Other members of board in attendance are Mrs. Tomori, Dr. Shadare and Prince Oyewumi.
The hostess of the event, Dr. (Mrs.) C. O. Ogunsanya in her opening address clearly set the tone for the gathering by clearly defining its purpose, which is to create an ambiance outside the college, where members of staff and members of the Advisory Board could meet minds on ways to move the college forward. This is aptly captured in the theme of the retreat, ‘Lowering the Waters’. The erudite main speaker of the day, Dr. Shadare held everybody spell-bound as he explored the imperativeness of change not only in the work- place, but also in every area of human endeavours. The Principal, Ms. Scott whose session came after the lunch break brought some level of application to Dr. Shadare’s presentation, by giving the participants ample opportunity to discuss some of the salient issues raised. The Chairman of the advisory Board, Mr.Tope Toogun as a peroration, enjoined the participants to not only appreciate the Retreat for its face-value, but how it could become everyday culture of all participants.
Dr. Ogunsanya’s reminder of the college’s motto DO WELL AND EXCEL impeccably sums up the main nugget of the Retreat, in that when an individual does things WELL, this ultimately translates to EXCELLENCE, not only in the work-place, but also in all areas of one’s life.
