Federal Ministry of Science & Technology and an ICT solution organisation, Skool Media, have collaborated to redefine learning in schools.
The latest is the donation of 20 laptops, ICT gadgets and other learning materials to the Federal Science & Technology, College, Yaba, Lagos (FSTC) for students, teachers and security personnel.
Project Director Skool Media Mr. Moses Imayi said the donation would be followed up with upskill training to equip them with knowledge.
He said: “Today, we are donating laptops, three patrol bicycles, 10 walkie-talkies, eight security searchlights, 10 raincoats, 10 security batons and 20 security whistles as part of the campaign drive, as we believe a safe environment enables success for students.”
Imayi said the gesture was his organisation’s partnership with the Federal Government to make learning and learning environment interesting and globally competitive. According to him, the quality of education globally is measured by the strength of ICT commitment in the teaching environment. He said it was regrettable that the quality of education offered by most schools could not help the students. Imayi pledged the commitment of his firm to improve learning standard.
The Principal, Dr. Ogochukwu Ufoegbune, thanked Skool Media for its donations. She said the gesture would improve the learning environment.
The Chairman of Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), Mr. Olisa Anene, assured the organisation that the PTA, with over 5,000 parents, supported them. “The equipment you are donating today will boost learning,” he said.
