Brief History of DIvine Love Secondary School, Trans Ekulu, Enugu.
The school is continuum of Divine Love Nursery/Primary School Trans Ekulu, Enugu. Hence, it came into being on 18th September, 2006 out of necessity. This was as a result of the Federal Ministry of Education, pursuant to its policy of Universal Basic Education had directed all primary schools in the country to open a junior secondary school to complete its basic education structure. This directive was withdrawn six weeks later. The ministry of education then advised proprietors/proprietresses who had acted on the ealier directive to seek the approval from the state Ministry of Education. The school was eventually approved after series of inspection pursued by Rev Sr. Mary Kate Okoye in Dec 22, 2009 with retrospective effect from September 2006. Late Mr. Donatus Nweze who acted as the principal from 2006-2012 worked assiduously towards the success of the approval.
The seal of the congregation authorizing the official opening of the school together with the funding of the educative and infrasctural needs of the school was given by the superior General, Rev. Mother Maria Ifechukwu Udorah. The school is situated at no 54/56 Jim Nwobodo avenue Trans Ekulu, just adjacent to St. Mary's Catholic Church Trans Ekulu. A magnificent two-storey building, well furnished with essential infrastructures to enhance adequate teaching and learning. A crew of qualified teachers was employed to teach subjects of their specialization. Each of them scaled through a strict written, oral and practical teaching interview that was organized by invited educationists including Dr. D.O Nweze of the Ministry of Education, Enugu. Till date the school has maintained high level of qualified and well seasoned teachers to meet the needs of our students.
In September 2007, the school had an intake of 45 students who were admitted after a formal Entrance Examination and interview. In 2008 the Ministry of Education Enugu, granted approval for the school to present candidates for the Junior School Certificate Examinations conducted by EDC with effect from June, 2009. Hence, all the candidates performed wonderfully well in all the Subjects.
However, as a result of the quality and level of the academic development in the school, approval for WAEC and NECO Senior Certificate Examinations was given in December, 2010. Today the school has produced her 4th set of the SS3 students who have taken their WAEC and NECO Examination with outstanding results
