Daily Trust - - EDUCATION - By Mis­bahu Bashir

Schools should teach core val­ues and help stu­dents de­velop good virtues, the di­rec­tor, Merry Bell Academy, Jik­woyi, Abuja, Mrs. Glo­ria Jeremiah Peter, has said.

She made the com­ments dur­ing the 3rd an­nual grad­u­a­tion speech and prize giv­ing cer­e­mony of the school in Jikoyi, Abuja. She said schools should pro­mote mu­tual re­spect and tol­er­ance to en­sure that stu­dents be­have as good cit­i­zens. She said the school en­sured that pupils adopt and live with pos­i­tive hu­man val­ues.

The guest speaker, Rev­er­ent Ezekiel Buba, said the chil­dren’s right to ed­u­ca­tion en­tails that the chil­dren be given qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion to de­velop, adding that “only ed­u­cated peo­ple can lib­er­ate the so­ci­ety” and over­come in­jus­tice and poverty.

The school’s ad­min­is­tra­tor, Ms Oluwakemisola Odunsi, called on par­ents to be sup­port­ive of their chil­dren’s ed­u­ca­tion “to pro­vide them with the re­quired train­ing for the ac­tu­al­iza­tion of po­ten­tials en­dowed in them.”
