Brick­hall holds maiden grad­u­a­tion

Daily Trust - - STRANGE STORIES - By Terkula Igidi

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.
