“Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world”
My fellow Opsans and friends of United OPSA, welcome and thank you for visiting our site. We are proud alums of Queen of the Rosary Secondary School (QRC), a Catholic boarding school which is the first ever all girls secondary school in West Cameroon, which opened it’s doors in 1956 and has since then been educating strong women who have gone on to become devoted wives and mothers, as well as leaders, educators, doctors, diplomats and assorted professionals in their communities and around the word.
We, through our association United OPSA USA (UOPSA) aim to reflect the values embodied in the school’s motto “semper fidelis” (always faithful) in all that we do. As this association has evolved over the years, we have sought to remain faithful to the values we learned in QRC and as a result have emerged a stronger, wiser and more determined group of women. In the last 4 years, UOPSA has worked tirelessly to bring all QRC past students in the USA together under one umbrella and at the same time with the help of our donors raised funds which, working very closely with the proprietor of QRC His Lordship Bishop Andrew Nkea have transformed the face of QRC from a poorly maintained, rapidly dilapidating institution to a place and environment fit for the education of future Queens. Despite the significant improvements, there is still plenty of work to be done. With the growing political and economic strife in the region, QRC is facing even bigger challenges in it’s mission to educate the girl child. UOPSA hopes to continue to provide much needed assistance to the school as well as the students.
As you navigate this site, we hope you will experience a sense of nostalgia and feel the bond of sisterhood that binds us all. Above everything, we are a community of loving sisters, friends, classmates, who through our chapters in DC, Silver Spring, Dallas, New York, Atlanta, Houston and Boston, stay connected throughout the year and meet as one body once a year during our annual convention, serve the communities we live in, and give back to the school that made us who we are today.
To OPSANS, thank you for your faithfulness to the course. To our donors, thank you for partnering with us. To past students who have not joined, we will be so happy to have you and to our future supporters, thank you for considering our association. We look forward to doing amazing things together in the future.
“If you educate a man, you educate an individual. But if you educate a woman, you educate a nation”
Be blessed and be a blessing to someone every day.
With Heart and Hands Together and always staying faithful
