Mr. Olise-Emeka Nwachukwu: Chairman 60th Anniversary Planning Committee

Wow! Finally, we are here!! Indeed, it has been a long journey. 60 years! 6 decades!! God has been incredibly faithful.

Thinking about it, celebrating a landmark year like this (60 years) for Birch Freeman High School is also celebrating the mercies, goodness and favour of God over our lives collectively and individually irrespective of our status. Some of us lost colleagues and friends while in high school and after high school in different phases of our lives but here we are experiencing the 60th Year of God's awesomeness. Glory to God!!!

Planning this great event has been a long journey too but guess what “Still the same God, with the same Story…

Photo:1992 set football field project.

The 1992 set is developing a football pitch for Birch Freeman High School in celebration of their Silver Jubilee (25 years graduation from BFHS). 

When the project is completed, old boys both at home and abroad will be invited to come and witness this amazing gift of giving back to BFHS.

Multi-purpose Court Project: Sponsored By 1976 Set

Photo: Multi-purpose Court

The multi-purpose court (basketball, volleyball and lawn tennis) was conceived by the 1972-76 sets of Bifoba to mark the 40th anniversary of their passing out of the school. It was completed and handed over on the 29th April 2016 at the annual school reunion. 

Currently, the court is undergoing some renovation as the surrounding area needs to be filled up and fenced, a project for which '76 set has already set up a funding process for its completion.

Up School!

That takes you to the forum page. On the forum page, click on the “+” button on the top right corner.

    • Dear Olumide,

      This page is meant for comments not for neither forums nor for blogs. If we want to start a discussion on issues that are related to our school, our association and us, we should write our discussion prose and post it on a forum page: It is a great place to discuss news related to our network, share experiences, and voice our opinions. This "comment" page is strictly created for short comments on issues that are related to our association, to our school, and to us (the alumni). As for videos and links on this page, we should  post  videos or connect links that support our comments or our respond to comments about BIFOBA, about BFHS, and about us. When posting a video or a link, we should try to fill out the "Link Text": the link text column is where we fill out the name/title for the link or video.
      Thank you!
