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.
