Principal harps on improving capacity of teachers
Principal, Christ The Redeemers College (CRC), Christhill, Sagamu, Ogun State, Pastor Antoinette Omo-Osagie, has advised the school owners to invest heavily in the capacity building of their teachers for effective productivity.
Speaking recently at the pre 20th-anniversary press conference of the school, the principal noted that, “We need to understand that mass failure goes beyond the students. If the teachers are not well trained, and there is no educational materials and equipment in the school for the students, there is no way they can impart quality teaching to the pupils. Most schools in Ogun State don’t have books and laboratories, how do you expect such students to perform well in the examinations?”
Omo-Osagie who explained that many school owners don’t want to train their teachers because they believe they would leave their employ one day said, “As educationists, you need to invest on capacity building of the teachers often in order to bring out the best in them. Government needs to provide education materials and update their teachers on modern teaching skills for effective performance.
On the anniversary, Omo-Osagie said that the purpose of celebration is to give thanks to God for divine faithfulness and to showcase what the lord has done in the college for the past 20 years.
Chairman, Board of Governors of the college, Pastor Bayo Adeyemo, said just as the school, which was founded on October 1, 1996 is celebrating its anniversary, its products including its pioneer set better known as “First fruit” are also doing well in different sectors of the economy.
Adeyemo added that over the years, “We have recorded excellent performance in various examinations and other social activities, and the school has won many local and international laurels for the country.
According to chairperson of the anniversary committee, Mrs. Aina Badejo, the year-long anniversary programme begins tomorrow Friday, September 30, with 20 hours of praise and worship. The programme will feature popular gospel artists like Kunle Ajayi and Ayan Jesu, and choir groups from different schools.
Other activities include inter house sports competition, and an opera and musical presentation at the MUSON Center, Onikan, Lagos in January 2017.
