- A BRIEF HISTORICAL PROFILE OF THE SCHOOL
Our Lady of Lourdes Girls’ Senior High School is located near the Catholic Church (Our Lady of Seven Sorrows Minor Basilica, Navrongo). The School was founded by Bishop Oscar Morin (a white father now known as missionaries of Africa) in the early forties originally as a girls’ school. In 1987, as part of the educational reforms, it was changed from a girls’ school into a mixed experimental junior secondary school instead of the then middle school system. In January, 1991, the school was up-graded from an Experimental Day Senior Secondary/ Technical School, as a follow-up to the educational reforms: a mixed school for that matter. Approval was granted the school in the 2009/2010 academic year to be known and called “O.L.L. Girls Senior High School”, to reflect the wishes of the founding fathers.

O.L.L. is one of the most deprived schools, which for a very long time has not seen any meaningful renovation until this year (2009/2010). The infrastructure of the school is not only woefully inadequate, but also very dilapidated. It has an old administration block, a library block, two technical workshops, a laboratory block and a rehabilitated vocational skills block. In addition, it has two blocks of classrooms and a three uncompleted classroom block which are being used, all totalling 9 classrooms. The school also has a limited staff accommodation of four quarters, including that of the Headmistress, each made up of two bedrooms, with one completely dilapidated.
The school was converted into a Girl’s School in the 2010/2011 academic year.
