Tech which makes Sense

Education is the best legacy that parents and guardians can pass on to their children and wards, in both developing and developed countries.

This is only true if parents and guardians know and appreciate the long-term values ​​and benefits of education and are therefore willing to sacrifice their current comforts for the education of their children or wards.

Our children and pupils are the leaders of tomorrow and therefore we, as parents and guardians, must educate them to achieve greatness, even if education at any level is not cheap.

The United Nations Fund for Early Childhood Education (UNICEF) was established on December 11, 1946 by the United Nations to meet the emergency needs of children in post-war Europe and China and around the world.

However, UNICEF said that in Nigeria, with an estimated population of 200 million people, 10.5 million children in our country are out of school, saying that “one in five of the world’s out-of-school children is of Nigeria “.

Primary education is officially said to be free and compulsory, yet children between the ages of 5 and 14 roam the streets of Nigeria, malnourished, ill and out of school, begging for alms.

Let’s tell ourselves the truth, there are unregistered, unprofessionally run, poorly equipped and mushroom-shaped schools in the developing and developed countries of the world.

There are also well-equipped and professionally run schools in Nigeria and elsewhere.

Although the UNICEF statistic is not limited to Nigeria alone, as the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and other developed countries also have their fair share of the numbers of children out of school.

However, independent controls and verifications showed that there are more than 20 million children and young people in the schools of the infant, primary, secondary and tertiary educational institutions of our beloved country.

However, in Nigeria, one of the many schools that are doing fantastic work is located along the Lagos-Abeokuta axis of Ifo, in Ogun State, and was founded by Pastor G. O Odunoye, who is also Executive Director.

The schools – St George Comprehensive College and St George Foundation School, are feeding children towards future greatness and thus helping the government at various levels to close the educational gap.

A visit by this writer to his school located at Plot 13, Abeokuta-Lagos Expressway, opposite The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Ashimolowo, Bungalow, Ifo in Ogun State, Nigeria, revealed a school founded and run by God with discipline as a slogan. for each student, staff and management.

His words: “Investing in the education of your children or wards is a valuable investment that, over time, will yield abundant returns on investments.”

Therefore, UNICEF’s 10.5 million out-of-school children call for concern and this is why we established our school to close the gap and partner with government at various levels to help raise standards in our education sector. .

But getting the right school to shape the character of your children, using God as a foundation with discipline as a backing, takes time, resources, and effort.

We at St George Foundation School, the nursery, daycare, and elementary school arm and St George Comprehensive College, the secondary school arm, both have what it takes to partner with parents and guardians in raising their children and wards toward greatness.

“To the extent that we love all students equally at school, we will not hesitate to punish any student involved in any form of indiscipline or social vice.” Pastor Odunoyo is a proven man of God from the fold of the Apostolic Church and recently said that “many, many prayers have sustained the school since it was established.”

The fear of God, hard work, discipline, honesty, patriotism, a high ethical standard, mental alertness, versatility, are some of the keywords that schools excel at.

The vision, mission and philosophy of the school is based on the use of the best and most modern teaching methods to prepare students for various tasks in the future, producing individuals of serious mind in both learning and character for future. leadership positions and striving to establish high ethical standards. and religious orientation for students.
