Mrs. Mary Musa founded Hopespring Foundation School in April 2005. She was a pioneer student of the then prestigious College of Education, Abraka where she obtained the National Certificate of Education (NCE) in 1981. She obtained her Bachelor of Education (B.ED) from the University of Port Harcourt in 1987
She is a very passionate and dedicated teacher with over thirty years experience both in the classroom and in managerial positions in Bereton Nursery and Primary Schools, and Montessori International School Port Harcourt. As a result, what started as a Pre-Nursery School in 2005, with six (6) children, has grown into a Pre-Nursery and Primary School with about Four Hundred and Fifty (450) children enrolled. Mary is a very firm and passionate believer in constantly improving the standard and quality of education in Nigeria. As a result, she has attended numerous courses within and outside Nigeria and is always encouraging her staff to do same.
Mary Musa loves and believes in children passionately. She is also a great philanthropist. She is married and has raised three lovely, successful and happy children.
When my idea of a school came to fruition, I prayed daily for a name that would depict the vision and mission of the school. In my quiet moments, after each prayer session, a bible verse “hope springs eternal in the hearts of those who trust in God……” would spring to mind, hence the name ‘Hopespring’. It is an affirmation that with my deep rooted belief in God’s guidance, and my potential, we would be able to lay a solid foundation in learning and character for tomorrow’s futures.
