Rotary Club of Gbagada retools Lagos schools for enhanced learning
Rotary Club of Gbagada South, District 9110, has commissioned an electronic library at Lanre Awolokun High School, Bariga, to boost digital learning among students and support basic education in Lagos State.
The club also planted trees at Gbagada High School, geared at checking climate change for better learning environment.
District Governor, Omotunde Lawson, while commissioning the projects, said having conducive environment and adequate facilities for learning was important for the growth of education sector.
She expressed the hope that the e-library would assist students to keep abreast with use of technology like their counterparts in developed countries, adding that the trees being planted would provide conducive environment for learning.
The club’s President, Olanrewaju Akosile, while performing the tree planting exercise, urged Nigerians to embrace the programme for a sustainable fight against global warming and its devastating effects on the society.
He said with the depletion of the ozone layer, there should be continuous afforestation to save the environment, especially in schools.
On the e-library project, Akosile noted that the club saw the need to boost learning in the school via deployment of technology, stating that the move will improve the students academically. He, therefore, charged the schools to sustain the projects for the benefit of future pupils.
Principal of Lanre Awolokun High School, Onifade Bayo, who spoke on behalf of the beneficiaries, commended the club for donating the e-library.
