Sunnydale director urges students to embrace technological innovation
Proprietress of Sunnydale School, Lagos, Mrs. Folakemi Osisanya, has advised students to embrace technological advancement as that is the only means of staying in touch with global trends.
Speaking at a briefing to announce activities for its 20th anniversary, the school director said since the Internet entrenches itself as a basic commodity, which everyone must use if they want to be in tune with technological changes, schools should regularly expose pupils to modern technological education so they can cope with their counterparts around the globe.
She urged government to initiate better policies that would enhance teaching and learning in the country’s institutions of learning and also shape the future for the next generation.
She said the school on its part has incorporated features of modern technological education in its curriculum to among others prepare students who would thrive in their future endeavours. “We are also through our curriculum committed to producing a total and global-minded child,” she added.
Head of School, Adegboyega Fadare, in his remark urges schools to ensure the safety of children in their custody by putting adequate security measures in place. He said, “Security in schools is very imperative as it gives parents peace to know their kids are in safe environment. At Sunnydale, we take proper care of children in our custody through our security agents who are always on ground to monitor movement in and out of the school premises. Also with the help of our CCTV cameras, we are able to monitor activities in and around the school.”
He also assured that the school would not relent in its effort of cultivating moral education among the pupils, adding that they have zero-tolerance for indiscipline and immorality. “Discipline and good conduct is paramount to us and so we make our pupils and their parents to sign an undertaking for positive behaviour and discipline.”
Chairperson of the anniversary planning committee, Mrs. Bisola Longe, while announcing activities lined up for the anniversary, stated that in October, the school will have a charity walk along the streets of Ikeja; visit a Muslim orphanage in Ikeja; and hold a thanksgiving service to end the anniversary.
