Brickhall holds maiden graduation
A private school in Abuja, Brickhall, held its maiden graduation and Prize Giving Day, Saturday, where pupils entertained parents and guests with drama, scientific presentation, and dances among other activities.
Speaking at the event, the Proprietress of the school, Dr Joy Emodi, said that she was “humbled and elated to be living her dream.”
Emodi, a former senator, said that it was her dream to establish a school to serve as model for both private and public schools.
“From the experience I have gathered and when I saw the rot in our educational system, I decided to set up a school to be a model to both private and public schools.
“I have background in education so I have been able to hire the best teachers. I also motivate my teachers,” she said.
She urged the government to regulate private schools to ensure that they give children quality education.
Administration of school, she said, was not a money making venture.
Earlier, the executive director of the school, Nneka Emodi-Eze, said that the school was built to “raise the total child.”
She said that the school encouraged creativity so that pupils can create things that can benefit the society positively.
