History of the School

Mater Domini schools is a uni-sex academic institution owned by the Catholic Diocese of Ogoja located beside Holy Trinity Catholic Church at the former St. Catherine’s Vocational Centre Ogboja – Ogoja.


Mater Domini Schools, formerly known as Mater Domini International Nursery and Primary School was founded on the 25th day of September 2017 by the Catholic Bishop of Ogoja, His Lordship Most Rev. Dr. Donatus Edet Akpan on the occasion of his pastoral visit to Holy Trinity Catholic Church Ogboja-Ogoja, with Rev Fr. Joseph Afu the then Parish administrator and Rev Patrick Akali who was the then serving Deacon and now a Priest.


Mater Domini International Nursery and Primary School, now known as Mater Domini Schools kicked started with the pronouncement of the Bishop and Rev. Fr. Joseph Afu and Rev. Patrick Akali (now Priest) were the pioneer administrators of the school with a total number of Sixty-Two (62) pupils, Six (6) teachers and Four (4) Nannies. To the glory of God the school kept growing and in 2018, Rev. Fr. Peter Egbonyi took over from Fr. Joseph Afu as the Manager of the school with One Hundred and Two (102) pupils, Eight (8) teachers and Three (3) Nannies; after two years Fr. Peter Egbonyi handed over the baton to Fr. Joseph Iyango who piloted the affairs of the school under the watch of the Bishop through the Diocesan Educational Board. During this period, the school grew to a total number of Three Hundred and Thirty (330) pupils with Ten (10) teachers and Three (3) Nannies. On April 1st 2022, Fr. Peter Ibu resumed a canonical position as Manager of the school till date and currently we have Four Hundred and EightY-three (483) pupils, Seventeen (17) teaching Staff, six (6) non-teaching staff and Four (4) Nannies.


Fr. Peter Ibu, like his predecessors, has being working hard to take Mater Domini to a higher level and his hard work and good initiatives has given birth to a Secondary Section approved by the Bishop, Most Rev. Dr. Donatus Akpan. The Secondary section kicked started with JSS ONE and JSS TWO in September 2022 with a total number of Eighty-six (86) students with Nine (9) Teachers and Four (4) Coppers. With the birth of the secondary section and with the approval of the Bishop this citadel of great learning has being renamed MATER DOMINI SCHOOLS, in order to accommodate both the Nursery/Primary and the Secondary Sections respectively.


It is worthy indicating here that, Mater Domini Schools is a Government-approved school with an approved Centre for all external examinations.
