OSUN ANGLICAN DIOCESAN NURSERY AND PRIMARY SCHOOL
The initiator of the establishment of Osun Anglican Diocesan Nursery and Primary school was the Lord Bishop of the Diocese, the Rt. Rev. J.A. Popoola who assumed duty in this Diocese on 31st July, 2000. The school was established on 17th September, 2001.
Before resumption of the school, the old classroom blocks at the Bishopscourt, Isale-Aro, Osogbo were renovated and inspected by the Ministry of Works and Ministry of Health respectively.
The School was officially opened on 17th September 2001 at 8am with a short welcome service organized by the committee in charge. At that time, the school had a population of 70 pupils and 5 teachers including Chief S.A. Oguntunde, the pioneer Headmaster. Before the end of the third term in that 2001/2002 session, the enrolment had risen to 96.
