Children of blessed apple celebrate christmas with fun, Joy
Blessed Apple School in Oshodi, Lagos, recently treated their pupils to an exciting and joyful time, as part of celebration marking Christmas.The gaily-dressed students delighted parents, friends and well-wishers of the school with different activities, which reflected the Season. These included beautiful dances, singing and choreography, among others.And for their efforts and talents, they were showered with lots of gifts, including umbrellas, food, drinks, chips and sweets, among others. The school did this to show love to the students and their parents.
The proprietress of the school, Mrs. Chiedu Esther, explained that the programme was aimed at fostering unity among the teachers and parents.She said: “The event was to enable children have fun and to mark the birth of Jesus Christ. Engaging students in extra curriculum activities help the children to know and improve their talents. It also helps them to perform better in their academic works and become shining stars in future, to enable them achieve their goals in life.
“The occasion is to celebrate with them and show them love, which is one of the reasons for the season. It is not enough to encourage the students to work hard by reading their books, it is also important that they are encouraged to be the best in other areas of life. The school and parents should work together to achieve this. Parents should invest in their children’s education, which is the only worthy legacy they can bequathe to them. They should also be careful in handling their children and avoid child abuse.
“The school’s mission is to nurture the school children physically, mentally and spiritually. Emmanuel Chidiogo, a primary 5 pupil of the school said: “I feel happy and excited, because this is our first Christmas party in the school and it is exciting.”
