It has a vibrant Old Students Association which exists to promote strong student and alumni relationships through service to the school. The association wants to sensitize its members to give back to the school and continue to restore the school as a Centre of academic excellence, national integration and national unity.
The Alumni Association has embarked on so many developmental projects, providing funding for educational programs, scholarships and structural improvements in FGCE, since inception.
The school has produced some of the best students along with distinguished alumni in all spheres of life including past Governors Senator Liyel Imoke and Senator Ahmed Makarfi.
The Chairman of the FGCE Reunion Planning Committee, Elder Ebibomo Timitimi explained that as the school celebrates its 45th Anniversary, the old students are coming together to celebrate with a Grand Reunion on August 9-12, 2018 in Enugu, Nigeria.
For him, having been largely shaped by their years in FGCE, it is good to come together, give back and tackle some of the challenges that the school faces. He called on all past students of the school to join the reunion on August 2018 at Enugu.
