Towards preparing students for a better tomorrow and mitigating issues of unemployment, Golden Anchor Group of School has equipped its students with various entrepreneurship skills.
   
At the just-concluded fifth edition of its yearly talent hunt/cultural heritage programme, the senior students of the school displayed series of hand-made inventions ranging from shoes, power bank, oven, clothes, among others.
   
The proprietor of Golden Anchor Group of School, Mathew Oliyede, while expressing satisfaction over this year’s talent hunt, explained that the essence of the programme was to help students discover their areas of interest and nurture them till they become masters in it.
     


“The talent hunt is just to restructure the minds of teenagers and the youths towards creativity to make them know that there is more to life aside learning from the four walls of the classroom.
     
“We have noticed that everybody has one talent or the other, whether you are introvert or extrovert. There is a gift in everybody, but you won’t know until we have such a programme like this,” he said.
     
Speaking on the theme of the event: ‘Restructuring young minds towards creativity’, the Head of School, Thelma Irere, said creativity was the way to go for the young teenagers, hence the motive behind the programme to train students to think outside their education.
   
According to her, “without exposing them to creativity and critical thinking, they might not be able to stand alone.”
   
The Social Director of the school, Damilare Odumosu, advised the students to see difficulties in life as a stepping stone to a greater level. 
   
He recalled that despite the challenges the students faced during the course of the four-day workshop, they still achieved the unimaginable.
