From Ojota Nursery and Primary School Ojota, we went to Emmanuel Nursery and Primary School at Ogudu to commission the library program. This project is important for the benefit of the pupils as well as the school. Under the auspices of the Support Our Schools Project, we have undertaken to refurbish and upgrade as many libraries in public nursery and primary schools, to boost the reading culture and improve educational standards. Our belief is that children need to have their first library experience at an early education level so that it becomes second nature to them as they grow.
We were pleased to be able to welcome the new Head of SUBEB in Lagos State (ably represented) on his first day with this project. We have been fortunate to enjoy the support of SUBEB, Ministry of Education and the Local Government Education Area (Kosofe) while doing our bit to make Lagos State meet the challenges of free education for residents of the state. We hope the library will be well used and looked after by Management, Teachers, and pupils.
