Dr Olumide Awe Memorial Lecture/Bi-Annual Dinner & Dance
On Saturday, 11 November 2017 we will be holding our Bi-Annual Dinner & Dance which promises to be great fun and an opportunity to meet old friends and new alike. The event will be a celebration of our alma mater and good food, drink, music and festivity will be provided.
As we rejoice at the reunion of old friends, we will remember one of our dearest departed, Dr Olumide Awe, a former Chairman of the Igbobi College Old Boys Association Europe Branch. We will be holding the first ever Dr Olumide Awe Memorial Lecture to honour his memory and make a contribution to intellectual discourse on subjects close to our community. We have therefore invited Dr Dele Olajide, who is a distinguished mental health practitioner, as our inaugural speaker to talk about the stigma of mental health amongst black Africans. It promises to be very informative and educational.

ICOBA Europe is a branch of Igbobi College Old Boys' Association (ICOBA). ICOBA Europe is open to all Old Boys resident in Europe. The association seeks to create an environment of support and friendship for its members and their families, as well as provide practical and directional support for our alma mater, in particular the educational attainment of the boys currently at the school.
ICOBA Europe also seeks to foster closer links with the North America branch and ICOBA International, the parent body of our association. We aim to organise a range of business, social and fundraising activities, including a bi-annual reunion that provides an opportunity to reconnect with old school friends, and others who may have attended the school in a different era, but nonetheless share a common heritage and set of values with us.
You will find on this site a host of resources that are hopefully of value. If you are not on our mailing list then please fill in the contact details form on this website. We look forward to your active support for our association and in particular, our activities.
