St. Saviours’ schools to commission Olympic- Size Swimming pool
In its bid to marry sports with quality education, St. Saviour’s School Ebute Metta, Lagos, will on Tuesday commission an Olympic standard swimming pool, which is projected to help improve the skills of Nigerian children, especially from the primary school level.
According to the Head Teacher of the school, Mrs. Ailsa Griffiths, the swimming pool project, which would enhance the extra curriculum sports activities of the students, will be declared open by some dignitaries, including two Lagos State commissioners.
Griffiths said, “the school has been consistent in its efforts towards providing Nigerians with high-quality education, blended with robust recreational and sports facilities to physically keep fit and be mentally alert.”
Revealing that the commissioning would take place at the Swimming Pool Arena in the school premises, Griffiths added that the school adheres to Nigerian school curriculum laced with elements of the British system, which offers a wider international perspective to the students’ education.
She said: “St Saviour’s School offers a broad and balanced education, preparing our children to succeed in a challenging global community and choice of profession including taking to sports and entertainment which are invariably rewarding and credible.
“The school sets a high standard of achievement and all our pupils are encouraged to try their very best at everything they set out to do.
“They are taught about making valuable contributions to society and to accept their responsibility in the preservation of the environment for future generations.”
