Beehive School wins Wellspring Founder’s Football Competition


[FILES] Yellow House pupils and their officials celebrate their victory at the Beehive School 2017 inter-house sports competition at the school’s sports arena… recently.<br />

Beehive International School, Agidingbi at the weekend defeated 13 other schools to win the third edition of the Wellspring Founder’s Football Competition. Carol Nursery, and Primary School, Agidingbi came second, while Witt Ville School took the third position.

The competition was part Wellsprings College, Ikeja’s corporate social responsibility programme.

Speaking at the end of the event, founder, Wellspring College, Mr. Daniel Isimoya stressed on the need for organisations to give back to society, which they benefit from.

Of the competition, he said, “They compete among themselves, some weep that they fail, suddenly they pick up, shaking hands with the one that defeated him.

“A lot is learnt and I think if you have this kind of spirit in society, relationships will be better.”

Isimoya disclosed that “there were about eight participants last year, it has grown to 14. When we started this school, the intention was to build up all these places to accommodate more students but we decided to let the children have a place to play because it is not all about profit.”

Isimoya said it was important to interact with the younger one through sports due to its health benefits, adding that it also aids the capacity to learn.

“We would like to strengthen the competition and get more schools involved. It is something we will need experts to help to organise.

“Competitions like this are expensive to organise but at the end of the day, you make people happy, especially the young ones. The 14 schools are from this local council, but we are looking forward to getting a team that could go and win the Channels Cup because they are at the same level.”
