In celebration of its fifth anniversary, Citytop School, Akowonjo, Egbeda, Lagos, has given palliatives to 50 families in the host community. This is just as it launches its game application on Google Play store today (Thursday).
Speaking at the ceremony in the school premises, on Monday, Chief Learning Officer of the school, Daniel Taiwo, said the gesture was borne out of the need to reach out to people with the economy in a bad shape.
“We felt that the economy is a bit harsh so we decided to give food items to people in our community. We are five years old. The first year we had free medical outreach just like what we have today, the second year we fumigated about seven streets, another year we equipped a private school in the area, the fourth year, we trained 35 students on coding which is part of our subjects, and today, we are going to launch our student game on Google Play Store as part of activities to mark our fifth anniversary,” he said.
Chairman of the day, Chief Creative Officer X3M Ideas and President, Association of Advertising Agencies of Nigeria, Steve Babaeko, commended the school management for the gesture.
He noted that it was important to give back to the community.
One of the beneficiaries of the palliatives, Alhaji Mustapha Yusuf, appreciated the school management. In his words: “This is a very nice school and we appreciate their cooperation with the community, and they continue to give good education to our children.”
He urged other schools to emulate the gesture and cooperate more with communities where they operate.
