Queens College is safe for competition, Elite Schools Cup organisers tell parents
The Elite Schools Cup Association (ESCA) has allayed the fears of some parents over their wards’ safety in Queen’s College, which is one of the venues for the competition.
Some parents recently expressed concern over the safety of their children following the recent outbreak of water borne diseases in the school. But the organisers of the Elite Schools Cup have assured that it is part of their responsibility to provide clean and healthy environment for the athletes, officials and spectators to compete, hence they embarked on a solidarity visit to Queen’s College to certify it as suitable for the competition.
The Chief Executive Officer, Elite Schools Cup Association, Olayinka Shokoya and some delegates, including principals and proprietors of the participating schools, led the visit to Queen’s College.
Shokoya, who had a chat with the Director of Queen’s College, confirmed the venue safe for students, officials and spectators, noting that it was important to assure the people of safety in their environment.
The Elite Schools Cup will feature competitions in basketball, football, athletics, chess and scramble with 18 schools participating in the hunt for medals.
One of the Elite Schools Cup Association delegates, the Principal of David Hall College, Alakija Rhoda, who laid emphasis on clean and hygienic environment for schools, assured that the venue was ready to host the games.
The grand finale of the competition will hold on November 15 at Dowen College, Idimu Lagos.
