Madonna Model Secondary School, Owerri, Nigeria…


Madonna Model Secondary School is a co-educational school situated at Works Layout, AlavnIkoku College land area within Owerri. It was founded on 8th September 1998, and managed by the congregation of the sisters of the immaculate heart of Mary, mother of Christ. The School is modeled to impact into students’ excellent academic and moral values which seems to be lacking in our society today. There is no discrimination in the services she renders to the society. Within her fifteen years of (age) existence, Madonna Model Secondary School has produced graduates and people who matter in the society. Our students have always gained admission into higher Institutions as they all make their papers as well as JAMB examinations in one sitting.


It will not be any wonder since no stone is left unturned while they undergo the training here with us. This is kudos to our professional, hardworking, unassuming and God fearing teachers and every other staff member of Madonna who work under the rain and the sun to make Madonna students best among equals.


Madonna Nobles are models. This is exactly what was in the mind of our foresighted Rev. Mother Mary Joseph Ann Anochie and her council in 1998 when she thought of setting up a Secondary School in Owerri (that is Madonna Model today). Her successor Rev. Mother Mary Dominica Odita and her council took up the baton, maintained and handed this same light of excellence to the incumbent Rev. Mother Mary Claude Oguh and her wisdom group who have chains of excellence (in stock) to make our students better citizens of our great nation and citizens of heaven. Worthy of mention are the varied ebullient principals with wealth of managerial leadership who have handled this great citadel of learning in different times, each adding new glamour to excellence we have today and will continue to have in Madonna. First in the line was Sr. Mary Antoinette Agu the pioneer principal who set this ball of academic and moral excellence rolling in Madonna within her short period of three (3) months September 1998- December 1998. Then came in the second principal, Sr. mary Margaret Ann Enedo from 1999-2000 with her one year stay, she consolidated the attitude of excellence in the children to take off. The light was taken up by the third principal Sr. Maria Chijoke Nwankwo from 2001 to September 2010 who maintained and added to the foundation laid by her predecessors and led Madonna to the height it has continued to tread. She could not have finished all that is needed to be done in Madonna so the button was handed over to Sr. Mary Joan Iwenofu as the forth principal of the school from September 2010-september 2012 who within her short time again infected the school with more excellence. Sr. Mary Donald Emeh received the light on September 2012 as the incumbent principal of the school for on-ward march of excellence. To God be the glory.
