Lagos School wins gold in Dubai
Lagos Preparatory and Secondary School (LPSS), joined 22 other schools around the world at the World School Games in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, earlier this month.
The competition saw students take part in various games, including athletics, football, and swimming. The LPSS won a gold medal in swimming, and bronze in athletics, while the girls came third in football.
As is the practice, the school welcomed their team back with fanfare. According to the Headmaster of the school, Stephen Sibthorpe, “This tradition is important, because it boosts the confidence of the team and encourages others to aspire to be excellent ambassadors. The spirit of comradeship is encouraged in LPSS so that our students will become adults, who identify positively and express loyalty to their primary environment.
“Plans are underway for the 2021 games in Dubai. This began on the School’s sports day on February 13, 2020.”
In the opinion of the LPSS Director of Sports, Coach Yusuf Ojeyinka, “Our sports day is a chance to identify new talent among old and new students.”
