...truly the best
ON April 25th 1983, a new school was established by Mrs. Oludolapo Odulami in the Surulere community in Lagos. The school christened Pampers Private School was to raise a very high standard for educating the youth.
Mrs. Odunlami who had been a model staff of Tender Foot Primary School in Surulere, where she taught young children took the bold step of resigning her appointment as a result of her passion for excellence.
She resigned and started her own school on 39 Johnson Street off Bode Thomas in Surulere with about ten children.
She was the most senior of the four staff members on her pay roll. A native of Ile-Oluji in Ondo state, Mrs Odunlami battled all odds and the school soon became a household name in the Surulere community.
Since 1983, Pampers Private School has grown from strength to strength, psychologically,
spiritually and financially hence the moving of the school to its permanent site on
Owukori Crescent in Alaka Estate, Surulere.
Pampers Private School, established based on a sound vision for educating the young ones,
has been built on a strong foundation of Montessori education manned by seasoned experts
who have good track records in the education of children.
With good ultra modern facilities, the school has since its inception been a leader in the
academic arena. Recently the school won the Mathematics competition organized by the
Mathematics Association of Nigeria in Lagos . Similarly, Pampers Private School came third
in the spelling competition organized by the Tastee Fried Chicken in 2006 and subsequently
came first in the same competition in 2008.
In 2008, the school won the debate competition organized by the Troopers family for schools and the most beautiful girl in the state was also from our school. These track records of excellence, made the Lagos State governor, Mr Babtunde Raji Fashola, to personally demand the essay written by Chiamake Onyenekw, a pupil of Pampers Private school in an essay competition organized by Vivan Fowler Schools for primary schools in Lagos State in 2009.
Chiamaka was eventually given a cash award by the governor.
At 28, Pampers has established others schools such as Pampers Private School, Lekki, Lagos, Rainbow College Day on 51, Johnson Street, off Bode Thomas and Rainbow College Boarding which has ultra modern facilities in Asese Village along Lagos-Ibadan express way.
The Director of Corporate Affairs of the school Mrs. Folashade Taiwo stated that the school’s good image was based on academic excellence and good personality training nurtured in the children right from the nursery school. "In nurturing future leaders of Nigeria, we have achieved so much that we even have several ex-pupils of Pampers married to each other to further propagate the ideals they have imbibed. Pampers is truly the best" she stated.
The Director of Studies of the school, Mrs. Philomena Ojudoh said that the school and her staff are out to build honest, trustworthy and God fearing children.
Dr. Olu Ajayi, the Administrator of the school thanked the parents for their support in the past 28 years.
