“Sports encourages sportsmanship, which tomorrow helps to build up networking, connecting and encouraging positive and healthy competition among ourselves, which of course is very good if you want to be successful in life.
“Like the saying goes, if you want to go very fast, you go alone, but if you want to go very far, you need to go with others. Sports also helps to support and provide all our daily energy needed to execute various daily tasks no matter where we find ourselves. Today is school and tomorrow is outside,” he said.
The school’s principal, Mr. Adesina Olugbenga Okunubi, said, “Education is not just about school work; the curricular is broadened to include other activities like body improvement and growth for the children otherwise students will just be learning and not developed. We have a rounded education in Rainbow College and it involves physical activities and sports.”
