The Impact Of Old Students Associations: An Example From DOGA

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State


Certainly, old students associations  were formed to give some helping hands  to  the schools where they left  through contributory means  in order to ensure that such schools are in conducive atmosphere for learning and for living in the boarding schools.

Similarly, old boys and old girls were formed  by former students with aims  of  assisting  their former schools  in different ways by  executing various projects that are useful at  classrooms, hostels, latrines, gates and walls in their former schools as contributions.

In this regard, there are a number of old students and old girls associations that are performing very well in their respective  former schools and all what they are doing  contributes greatly in boosting   learning especially at present when government alone cannot tackle everything in education sector.

In this respect, Dala Old Girls association (DOGA), is one of the few such old  students that is making an excellent move towards the development of Government Girls College Dala, popularly known as GGC Dala, which is also one of the oldest girls secondary schools that produced  prominent Nigerian ladies that we are proud of today.

DOGA is  categorised  into chapters since the formation of the association, and each chapter is trying it’s best in contributing  to the school as seen today that GGC  Dala is the best girl’s college that benefited and is benefiting with  the helping hands from it’s old girls who are almost in everywhere in Nigeria today.

Furthermore, GGC Dala is rapidly changing because the old students are always  executig more projects that  are mostly needed keeping in mind that their school should also benefit from the little they have all for the development of education  as an important sector.

In addition, GGC Dala is also getting more infrastructure and wearing a new look as one of the famous girls academy, while the new  director of the school Hajiya Dije  is gradually working out more strategies that would transform the place to a more conducive institution of learning.

In conclusion, Kano State Government through the Kano State Senior Secondary Schools Management Board (KSSSSMB), DOGA, the PTA under the leadership of the District Head of Dambatta  who is also the Sarkin Bai of Kano and the school Director Hajiya Dije all  deserve respect and praise in joining hands together for the general development of GGC Dala with excellent performance.
