Shocker Wednesday at Oxbridge Tutorial College

On the 22nd of January 2014, at about 3:10pm, towards the end of lectures for that day, the students of Oxbridge TC were summoned to the hall, and that was the beginning of an epic wake up call to the students. Mr. Gbolade Okeowo and Mr. Omasa Muyiwa, who happen to be old students of Oxbridge TC, gave us the speech we needed to continue pushing on.


They spoke on a topic tagged ‘THE POWER OF HUMBLE BEGINNINGS’. Mr. Gbolade kicked off this little gathering by first giving us a simple, yet intriguing explanation of what the topic was all about. He did this with a short video on metamorphosis (how an egg hatches to form a caterpillar which eventually grows into a pupa and finally an adult butterfly).


At every stage, there is a new beginning where this soon to-be butterfly goes through so much pain, physically, mentally and emotionally just so it can embrace the oncoming change. He likened this to us, teenagers and emphasized  the fact that there would always be pain. He cited examples from Jeremy Lin, Beyonce and the likes that went through a tough time at some point or the other, but made it to the top. He told us that it would take consistency and practice for us to get to the finish line in glory and he likened this to Wolfgang Mozart, Usain Bolt, Warren Buffet and the likes. He also told us what Dr. K. Anders said ‘excellence is not just based on practice but deliberative practice’. He told us to keep on working on our skills till they are perfect or close to perfection and to settle for nothing less. He told us also to learn to give back to the society in our own little way and finally that we should learn to be industrious, put on your thinking caps and make the best use of it. 


At this point, he turned the mic over to his friend Mr. Muyiwa Omosa , who concluded the talk with words that hit home. He said the cemetery is the richest place in the world because there lies doctors that died drunkards, there lies schools that were never built, rich men and women that died drug addicts and prostitutes, presidents that died touts. And he pleaded with us not to add to the list of the treasure beneath the ground.

With that, the students of Oxbridge TC went home with so much to chew and digest.

Laurette College Visits Oxbridge

Students of Laureate College Mafoluku, Lagos and two of their teachers paid the college a visit on the 23rd of January 2014, under Oxbridge Taster Day Session, where the door of the college was  open to interested schools to visit and have a first-hand experience of the educational services offered by the college.

The students and their teachers came as early as 9a.m. and this time round, we had a set of exciting students, who were so engrossed in the fun of exploring the college that they didn’t feel like leaving when it was time to go. They visited the classrooms, and other interesting areas in the college. They also had the opportunity to attend some classes with the college Vice-Principal. The day culminated in a lunch with Oxbridge students.

The visiting students shared their experiences and one could not but feel the impact of the visit on them:

Senebif Nanya, an SS3 girl  said, ‘I think it is the only college I see in Nigeria with a high standard. I think it is the right place for me on my journey to school in Canada.’ ’

Rajim Gbile had this to say, ‘The visit today was fun and I  enjoyed every bit of it. I attended a Further Maths class and the class was fun too. Students too were fun to be with. I hope to come back some day’’.

Chisom Isreal also shared his experience, ‘’A wonderful experience .I met wonderful people and wonderful facilities and I would really like to come back to the school’’. According to Chibuke, ‘’It was a nice experience, like home away from home.I learnt a lot from the Maths class and I hope to come here for my A ‘Levels’’.

By 2pm,it was time to go and not empty-handed as the Marketing Team of the college handed each visitor a goody bag.

As part of the college initiative of familiarizing the Lagos environ with the programmes and facilities of the college, it was another success story on the 15th of February, when 12 students from Corona College paid the college a visit. Some members of the college SRC and some student volunteers were at hand to take the visiting students round the state of the art facilities and operations in the college.

The journey started from the newly decorated reception through the classrooms-(Students were not just observing, but actually attended some lectures such as Economic. Visits were also made to the Girls’Residence, the laboratories, gym, and clinic. The culmination of the visit was a short presentation by the college Principal, Carol Scott.

The students after an exciting time, spanning close to four hours, shared their experiences with Oxpress:

According to John Ezemua, ‘The college has facilities comparable to what you have in the best A ‘level schools abroad. The teaching too was excellent. The members of staff were friendly and really approachable’.

Mike another student also shared his experience, ‘It is an at amazing experience, with a relaxed atmosphere too. The members of staff too were friendly’.

Princess Simon a female student shared her experience was not left out too as she gave her impression about the college:  ‘I think Oxbridge is a good school. Both students and staff were friendly. I love the food too! I think it like a home away from home’.

After what was definitely an exciting and fulfilling time, the Corona  students were presented some goody bags and they left for their school at 1pm.
