I warmly welcome you all to the official website of the Olivesfield Schools, Lagos on www.olivesfieldschool.sch.ng. I am pleased to introduce the Olivesfield Schools to you as the director of this great citadel of learning. I give all glory to God.
The name “Olivesfield” is culled from the Bible Passage Psalm 128:3 … ‘thy children shall be like olive plants round about thy table’. The Olives tree is a fruit bearing tree. It continues to bear fruit as it grows slowly and steadily reaching a great age. At its death, new branch sprout from its roots. The economic importance of olive tree and its fruit(olives) cannot be overemphasized.
The bible, likened children to the olive plant, such that when they grow up, they shall be like olive trees. In addition, Farmers say that no matter the quality of a seed, if you do not plant the seed in the right environment and nurture it in the early stages, the seed will die or have a stunted growth. That is why Olivesfield School is considered the right and ideal environment for “growing an Olive child.”
Our school’s mission statement is absolutely committed to utilizing divine abilities, using highly creative and endowed team of professionals to
spear-head the moulding, training and the development of independent life-long learners to lofty heights.
