Tribute to Mrs M.T.F Sojinrin Mrs. Sojinrin touched my life in a very subtle yet great way. She taught me manners and elegance. I remember how she would call our names from her office whenever we tried to cross the school lawn, till today; I find it difficult to walk across a lawn as I always remember her teachings. She was one of the best things that happened to my life as a young girl. She didn't have to talk to make you want to do right, you just had to watch her walk with her head high and you would want to emulate her virtues. The educational sector in particular has lost one of its best, but I take consolation in the fact that though she is no longer here with us, she left a part of herself, her values, in me and in so many others. May the beautiful soul of Mrs Sojinrin rest in God's perfect peace. Amen. Pamela N. Nwajiaku Old Student Holy Child College. 2008 set.

I never thought in a million years this day will come, that I Atawodi Ojima as she calls me, will be writing a eulogy, a tribute to Mrs M.T.F Sotjinrin. I write this with a heavy heart and at the same time with peace in my heart knowing fully well you are resting in the bosom of the lord and for the fact that you left a mark... your mark on this earth before your departure. Thank you for believing in me Thank you for making me see the bigger picture at all times Thank you for the unshakable foundation you laid for me, for my colleagues, for our School. Thank you for sacrificing your self for us, for me, making sure we all had the best education that could be offered at that point in time Thank you for making me never to settle for mediocrity, you made me always strive to be the best wherever I found myself. You were, are and will always be my role model. I hope I made you proud. Thank you for everything Ma. You will be missed Atawodi Ojima Head Girl 2001/2007 set

The greatest impact in my life have been by women. Women who at first saw me better than I saw myself and saw the value I could bring even when I was too young or naive to see them for my self. One of these women was Mrs M.T.F. Sojinrin. Tough as nails but one of the kindest women I have ever met. It was always a pleasure to watch her work and carry out her duties as school head teacher with impeccable grace, class and dedication. It was a greater privilege to learn and spend time with her. She ensured she got out every shy and low self esteem bone in me and got me to try out tasks I never would have tried. The best thing about her was her ability to see you for who you are, who you could become and she always proceeded to make you better. She saw us. What we did, how we did it, how we felt, how we even walked. I can only hope I create the kind of impact she created in the lives of people I come across in my life here on earth and I am certain she is with God. Rest on Ma.

My dear Mrs. Sojinrin, when I heard you had left this world, I was so sad. Though I grieve your exit from this world, I am very grateful to God that I reconnected with you after my school days. You moulded me from the little 11 year old I was when I entered Holy Child College in 2001 to the lady I grew into after graduation. You instilled discipline in me. You showed me what it meant to be a leader. You listened whenever I had any issues. You were always there for us girls. Always. I'm so happy that you were my principal for my entire six years in Holy Child College. I couldn't have asked for a better principal. I know you are in heaven with our Lord because of the impact you made in all the lives you of the girls that you met. Your passion for the education of the girl child was unparalleled. The world has lost a rare gem. Rest in peace ma. You are forever in our hearts. Chinenye Cordelia Nkem-Nnake (nee Nzenwata) Deputy Head Girl, 2001/2007 set.

TRIBUTE TO A HEADTEACHER TURNED MOTHER I would not use the word late for you because to me you still live on considering the lives you have touched (especially girls) who still live out the virtues imbibed in them through your life well spent. I am a product of the great life you lived and am proud of the girl I used to be and the woman I am becoming. I remembered her words of encouragement to me of how I can always do better even when to me I had done my best. I remembered telling you I wanted to be like you and you laughed very hard and said to me "Ebere, be yourself". That response shook me but today I live in the reality of that response and happily enjoying every bit of listening to you. You practically thought me alot from academics to how one should live a fulfiling life. When you punished me for doing something wrong you did it with love. There are alot of great things to say about your life which will be too much to be contained in a book. I miss and love you greatly and my dad also felt bad on hearing about your demise. His exact words were "why do good people die". May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace Mrs M.T.F Sojinrin. Ebere Onwubuariri 2001/2007 set Holy Child College

As the days turn into weeks after your demise with my heart still grieving, I decide to celebrate your life well spent as a mother, aunt and a family friend who cared about the welfare of everyone you came in contact by going the extra mile.

God looked around his garden, And he found an empty place. He then looked down upon this earth, And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you, And lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He saw that the road was getting rough, And the hills are hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids, And whispered "peace be thine". It broke our hearts to lose you, Stars may fade but the light lives on, Rest on Mrs. Marie Theresa Folake Sojinrin. You are always in our hearts.

I cannot believe you are no longer with us …with a heavy heart, I pray for the eternal repose of one who was a mother and Aunt of distinguished humanity. A beautiful soul, full of love and faith, ascended to heaven, away from us, but closer to God, leaving loneliness and sadness. The good Lord called our beloved mother and aunt, God has bigger plans for you. You will always remain in our hearts. My sincere condolences to the grieving families.May God rest her gentle soul in peace.

R.I.P. Mrs. Sojinrin you will be greatly missed. Your were the only Headteacher that showed all your girls you really cared for each and everyone of them. You made us all know that it didn't matter where we came from that we are all special. You told us to embrace our truth and follow our heart. You never treated anyone different no matter if you were pushing one girl in debate or another girl in sports. You were kind but firm. You told me to never let my education fall just because I interested in sports and dance. Even after we graduated you always wanted to keep in touch to keep pushing us to be great. I wish I was able to come see you again after I graduated. You will not be forgotten because you will forever live in us Holy Child girls hearts. Opeyemi Kushimo (Nee Bashorun) Houston, Tx.

It seems just like yesterday that you were admonishing us, pouring down words of wisdom on us. You repeatedly told us that education is the only thing we could give ourselves and stopped at nothing to bring out the best in us. You were more than a Headteacher to me, you were a mother and a friend. So many times you were the hand that pulled me up when I was weak. You taught me to always be above board. You believed in me. There are so many things that you would be remembered for, no words can express them all. Thank you again for everything. You will be greatly missed. Rest on in the bosom of the Lord.

Tribute to my favourite tutor, Mrs. MTF Sojirin Growing up, I had the gift of words but discovering it and refining it into what it is today was all thanks to Mrs. Sojirin. She discovered this rare talent that I had and fanned it into flame, encouraging me to embrace what has today become a career path for me. She tutored me, gave me an opportunity that many may never have given to me or, many may have ignored. I mean, some frowned at the fact that I had to miss a class or 2 attending competitions or spending time in the library to research but she believed that I could cope just well- be outstanding in class and still bring back laurels and awards for my school through debates and writing competitions. When it seemed like some of my peers were making it tough for me, she called them out. When it looked like I was feeling alone or down, she gave me her shoulder. As a transfer student, I never felt like one because from the get go, Mrs. Sojirin was there for me. Years after graduation, she still checked in to know how I was doing with life. She has left a mark in my life that can never be forgotten. Each time I tell my story, I always say, she was there for me. Even my younger brother said to me, " You are so lucky to have someone encourage you to write". Princi as we loved to call you, your baby girl is doing just fine. She won her first award as Best Blogger ELOY awards. She's taking this writing seriously and ensuring that no one makes her feel less confident of herself. As I write this, i finally let those tears run cos I have been holding it back. Trying to be this strong girl you know me to be but you also taught me without knowing it, how okay it is to be soft. So, yes, I let the tears run cos I miss you. I miss that you never stayed alive to watch my career reach its peak and hear me give speeches where I would make reference to you. Even as you have gone, I know you will be watching and I promise that someday, when I tell my story to a multitude of people, I will make sure they honor you. I love you so much that even words fail me. So uncertain of how coherent this words are but, I ask the Lord to grant eternal rest to your soul and let perpetual light shine on. Your media girl and diplomat in the making, Ifeoma 'Oma' Ehiri. HCCOGA

OUR PRINCIPAL   There was an uproar! Everybody jostling and playing, shouting and talking, creating serious noise and every where scattered like it was a battle ground. Suddenly a voice shouted out loud- "Would you keep quiet girls!". There was great silence as only those words hung in the air. This wasn't the first time we were hearing those words but each time they always had an outstanding effect on us not because the words were special or of any importance but because they came from the lips of a virtuous, courageous and motherly woman whom we all adored and respected- OUR PRINCIPAL.   This woman of great charisma and many qualities never ceased to impact something new into our lives each day. Every day of school for the six years I spent here was always one to remember for me. As a student I looked forward to every general assembly which was headed by Our Principal not because I loved to stand under the sun for almost an hour or because I was an extremely righteous student but because I always wanted to hear principal speak. Her voice is like that of the nightingale, so wonderful to listen to and her words are like a sharp edged sword that always pierced my soul leaving an unforgettable mark in me. As a result of this, I always wanted and tried my best to be in school early so as not to miss the general assembly; that is apart from the heavy punishment awaiting any late comer as you would be locked outside. This of course gave me a huge sense of punctuality and timeliness. She is a woman with good orature and constant quality advice as every assembly was either to advise us on good manners or to give us sound quality lecture on current affairs around us or in the world at large.   She has a huge sense of responsibility, that makes her drive, push and urge one forward in order to succeed. Everything she set her mind to achieve always came out a big success. This drive and urge she impacted into me and every other student. She firmly believed that she could transform Holy Child College from what it had become in the hands of the government to what it used to be when it was first established. Of course the transformation was marvellous and surprising too.   Her motherly nature (as she is a mother and a grandmother) aided her good relationship with the staff and students in the school. It was always easy for us to run to her when we had a problem and we were sure to get answers and support all the time so much so that she was sometimes accused of pampering us especially we the first set of the new generation of the college as we were always called.   Although she has aged over the years her intelligence and memory hasn't dimmed at all. In fact, I sometimes wondered if she had a hardware memory that helped her store information she learnt as far back as her secondary school days. You can imagine how long ago that is- but as she would say, “If you use your brain all the time, it won't fail you and you will be surprised at how retentive it is”. She is also a very humble woman. Despite her age, she respects everyone’s beliefs and opinions and gives everyone equal opportunity to air their views- she has a wonderful listening and understanding character. She is always ready to admit when she is wrong and accept correction. This is a very rare quality, because even in our generation, it is difficult for one to admit that he or she is wrong let alone accept correction. She is also always ready to apologize when she has offended anyone and tries to avoid controversies of any kind.   As an ex-student of Holy Child College, tutored under the leadership and inspiration of this great woman- OUR PRINCIPAL- I can stand boldly and say that schooling was a wonderful experience for me and I would never forget all the great experiences both good and bad I had in this college as well as the wonderful life lessons I learnt from her.   Who is this Principal? She is none other than Mrs. M.T.F Sojinrin. I would forever cherish you ma and remember that you gave me the solid foundation and right footing to forge on in life. As you leave, I sadly say Farewell, God's blessings and great success in all your endeavours in the years ahead. Many more prosperous years. We love you Ma!!!   Nneka Ofili On behalf of the first set of the new generation of Holy Child College 2001- 2007 Academic Set.

A POEM FOR MRS. Marie-Therese Folake SOJINRIN She is the full moon That shines in the dark Driving away idleness Revealing weakness And providing the blind with light As they bathe in her pool of knowledge She is the lioness who Fearlessly guards her cubs Nurtures them with wisdom And patiently awaits The blooming of the flowers Grace marks her procession And in her recline majesty is found Her golden eloquence Gladdens the listener’s ears As from her tongue drips The honeyed letters of a queen What title is befitting to bequeath An Administrator among Administrators A Principal among Principals A Leader among Leaders An Icon among Icons So I choose the best I can “A legend of her time” - Ms. I.A. Nwalibe HCC STAFF

ACTION! The word describes Mrs. M.T.F. Sojinrin. Working with her made one wonder where she got her energy at her age (then) of sixty four. While staff half her age complained, she was ready to climb new heights and conquer more ‘Everests’, more ‘Kilimanjaros’. Mrs. Sojinrin would go on stage to teach students the right dance steps. She would repeat a word continuously at assembly until the students could pronounce it right. She was always striving for the best. Working with her, you must be up and doing. No excuses! Success is the language! Her vivid imagination was ever present; continuously creating new ideas. A perfectionist, a true workaholic. How on earth will she cope with retirement? God bless you, Ma!

Every educational institution has its own appeal that attracts visitors to the particular school. King’s College has its uniform, St Gregory College has the academics and Holy Child College, of course, has everything in addition to its talents. Talents brought up and maintained till the end by a woman who had a vision to achieve various missions. A woman none other than, Mrs. M.T.F Sojinrin. After being handed over to the missionaries, Holy Child College needed a woman who could handle us and as well a woman full of kindness, uprightness, decorum, wisdom and faithfulness. She enlightened her students on issues and topics beyond the four corners of a classroom enriching our minds globally. Focused our intellects in music, sports, debates, competitions as well as maintaining our academic scores. To me, Mrs. Sojinrin was more than a school head teacher; she was a role model, mentor and maternal figure. When I was just figuring out who I really was in the beginning of period when you were supposed to have an idea of what to do, she was there to guide me step by step. As a mentor, she trained me to develop my talent given to me by the Almighty God and make use of it in no time. She gave me the courage and focus I need in my academics and career. As a mother, she truly listened to my problems, each time I had one and advised me on how to go about in solving it. She helped me also when I was down and lifted me up when I gave up and stopped trying. A spirit of inspiration, motivation, devotion and determination. A woman of endless love and respect for Holy Child College. A human being of true existence. It is true you never know what you have till it is gone. There will be no other head teacher as special like Mrs. Marie Theresa Folake Sojinrin. She is truly a woman worth remembering through the halls of Holy Child College as a legend.

Mrs. M.T.F. Sojinrin. Strict, Firm, yet full of Motherly Gentleness. She had a good relationship with teachers and students alike and was ready to sleep in the school to ensure smooth running of the school. She went out of her way to scout for scholarships for the less priviledged. This is a reflection of her stand on education as a right for all. Like her namesake, Mrs. Sojinrin could be described as a ‘Mother Theresa’. - A Close Associate HCC

OUR MENTOR – TRUTHFUL . FAITHFUL (M.T.F.) MRS. SOJINRIN!!! A Rare Gem of Humanity. Truthful, Frank, Bold, Understanding and Courageous. She was just as caring for her staff and students. Beneath that no nonsense exterior, was an amiable quality. She gave her best and demanded no less dedication from the teachers. Mrs. Sojinrin was devoted, loving and dedicated as a principal. She is very particular about good behaviour and cleanliness in and out of school. School sanitation was of great importance to her, lateness to school and lateness to class by teachers was never tolerated. A Rare Gem whose brilliance would forever reflect in the lives of all she came across. She is a unique lady who had built up her girls’ confidence without them knowing it. During her time at Holy Child College, academics was emphasized and rewarded. Mrs. Sojinrin knows all her students by name, which was very mysterious and unbelievable. I learnt a lot from her and my heart throbs with absolute delight each time I think about her. Mrs. Sojirin, “Bu ezigbo mmadu, O siri ike O mezue ihe hiri nne”. “Eniyan ti ko ni wahala, Obinrin ti mo ni ife re gaan. O mo iwe. O fe ki gbogbo eniyan feran lati ka iwe. Eniyan ti ko ni ahun ni,. O ma nfun eniyan ni nnkan ti o fe. Eni ti o ngbo’ro eniyan ni.” “The hand of the diligent will rule The plans of the diligent leads surely to abundance By wisdom a house is built By understanding, it is established By knowledge the rooms are filled With all precious and pleasant riches” “Sanu de aiki” ! Mrs. Sojinrin is an epitome of determination, hard work, intelligence, patience, excellence, prayerfulness and candour. A person who has shaped the lives of many, by instilling the virtues of commitment, honesty and discipline in female youths, in whose lives most of these virtues are lacking. An exemplary and charismatic leader who serves as a role model to young girls and a catalyst to positive change. Madam Marie-Therese Folake makes people, especially her students in Holy Child College realize their talents and she encourages us. A Principled Principal! - Belonwu Oge (SS3H) HCC 2008
Posted by Hcc Oga on 9th August 2018
The following tributes/accolades were written for the retirement party held in Mrs Sojinrin's honour by Holy Child Old Girl's Association in 2008 and we feel they are so apt to share now as we honour her memory and appreciate her labour of love in Holy Child and service to humanity especially her dedication to educating the african child and particularly the girl child. A rare gem, an educator par excellence and a mother to the core. She sacrificed soon much for the girls she groomed in Holy Child College. May her legacy continue to tell a good story of her in Jesus' name. Rest in Peace woman of virtue. HOLY CHID COLLEGE OLD GIRLS' ASSOCIATION

When I heard about the passing away of our dear friend,Marie, I was very sad; but after a few moments thought I began to praise God for HIS Goodness & Mercies upon her life. For HE, the Owner of life, had chosen to end Marie's physical pains and sufferings. I thank HIM for her life, characterised by love for all & dedication to moulding the lives of young people especially girls for the good of the larger society. Rest in perfect peace, dear friend, and may God comfort your family & friends left to mourn your transition.
