Osun Parents Urged To Support Aregbesola’s Education Policy

SCHOOLphotoParents and guardians in Osun State have been urged to support the efforts of the state government in its bid to take education to a higher level.

Speaking exclusively with our correspondent in Osogbo on activities lined up for the celebration of 50 years of existence of St Lawrence Grammar School, Ilesa, the chairman, Planning Committee, Pastor Ekamah Samuel Oghenekevhe, who made the call, noted that government alone cannot provide all the facilities required in schools.

Ekamah, who commended Governor Rauf Aregbesola for investing heavily on education despite the meagre resources at his disposal, urged parents to complement his effort by providing the basic needs of their children in school.

He expressed the commitment of the Old Students’ Association of the school to bringing back the past glory of the school through the provision of infrastructure that will create conducive atmosphere for learning, such as a furnished block of classrooms donated by Mr Bayo Jimoh, and a borehole by Mr Tony Apata among others.

Speaking on activities lined up for the week-long celebration, Ekamah said Wednesday, 12th November will witness ‘Walk to Live’ by students, teachers and old students from the school to the roundabout, Ilesa; Career Talk and Novelty Match on Thursday; while Friday will witness Quiz and Art Exhibition.
