The alumni of Federal Government College, Odogbolu, set 2000, has said a conducive environment will aid smooth learning and teaching.
Speaking during the renovation of the school’s clinic on Thursday, chairman of the Project Committee, Roy Osuji, noted that the project was symbolic as it marked the very first of its kind for their set.
“Renovated with love and equipped with our hearts, we believe that this project will impact the well-being of the children and staff physically, socially, and mentally,” Osuji said.
Chairman of the alumni, Adedapo Kukoyi, said, “Education goes beyond academics; it is about fostering an environment that nurtures our students’ development. Recognising the importance of health in learning, we upgraded our school clinic to better serve the needs of students, faculty, and staff.
“This renovated clinic is a testament to our commitment to a safe and healthy learning environment. It symbolises our dedication to recognising that a healthy body and mind are essential for optimal learning and academic success,” he said.
The school’s principal, Amos Akinpelu, stated that the decision to renovate the College’s clinic was an attestation to the realisation of the role the College played in their growing up and the value of a good education in a conducive atmosphere for learning.
“The renovation has brought the Clinic to a high aesthetic level and more conducive to handling the health challenges within the College community. The improved facilities have started contributing to improved health management of the College staff and students. It is no doubt a laudable contribution to the College plant and worthy of emulation by every dynamic mind.
He, however, requested more assistance to the College in other areas of needs.
