Avoid cutting corners, Omosowon charges graduands
Proprietor of Pacific Schools, Akowonjo, Lagos, Mr. Remigious Omosowon, has urged the 52 graduating students of the college to stay focused and avoid cutting corners in all their endeavours.
Speaking during the 2019 valedictory service of the school, Omosowon said, “if every Nigerian child is brought up in the way of God and given the right education that promotes self- confidence, self- believe and capacity for performance, then success is possible without cutting corners.”
He said the school on its part, is committed to promoting excellence in their service delivery, stressing that the teachers have the potentials and capacity to deliver the mandate of the school, which is “ensuring that every child’s potential is fully maximised.”
In his parting words, he said, “I am giving you two tips that would help you succeed in life. First, always dream big and believe you can achieve your dreams. Barrack Obama achieved his dream of becoming an American President because he believed he could. He had a big dream, worked hard at it and developed himself to achieve the dream. You can achieve your dreams. Secondly, learn to be critical in your thinking and be creative.”
Principal, Mr. Andrew Mekwunye, said the graduands could survive in any aspect of human endeavour, as the school groomed them to overcome moral, academic and social challenges at all times.
Chairperson of the event, Mrs. Kofoworola Awobamise, advised the students to connect with the right people and also take their destiny in their hands by working hard to achieve success in life.
The guest speaker, Prof. Ige Bolodeoku, from the University of Lagos (UNILAG), faculty of law, tasked the students to take advantage of ICT and virtual library to access materials and information to solve any academic problems, adding, “it is fruitless to stop students from accessing Internet but rather they should be monitored closely.”
While several academic awards were presented to students in both primary and secondary school, the school’s head girl, Egidi Precious emerged the best overall graduating student.
