The National Executive Council of St Peter Claver’s College, Aghalokpe Old Students Association has postponed the 70th Anniversary of the founding of the College.
The executive committee had planned to hold the 70th Anniversary in December, 2020.
At a meeting in Sapele, Delta State, the Association announced 9th, 10th and 11th April, 2021 as the new date for the 70th Anniversary Celebration
A statement by the National President of the Association, Mr. Cornelius Semiteje, said the postponement became necessary because of the global Covid-19 pandemic.
‘’We are interested in the health of old students and guests’’ the statement said.
Founded in 1950 as the forth secondary school in Warri Province (later renamed Delta Province in 1952), St Peter Claver’s College was the first secondary school in Sapele.
Its proprietor, His Lordship P. J. Kelly, Catholic Bishop of Benin Diocese which included Warri/Delta Province during British Colonial Times, envisaged St Peter Claver’s College as the equivalent of St Patrick’s College, Asaba, for the Catholic Community in Warri Province.
SPCC moved from Sapele to Aghalokpe in 1953.
