Kid Academy in Lamin recently held its Grade 6 class of 2016/ 2017 speech and
prize giving day, at a ceremony attended by senior government officials from
the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education, teachers as well as parents.
Delivering his speech on the occasion, Kingsley Afolo, head of the Lower Basic Section, said this was the first time the primary 6 pupils are celebrating their graduation on a separate day without been conjoined by their younger brothers and sisters in nursery 3.
He commented that the ceremony was also important because the number of graduating students was the highest since the inception of the school.
Also speaking, Dr Dennis Ejila, proprietor of King’s Kid Academy, said the graduation ceremony was for Grade 6, adding that a total of 26 pupils graduated from Grade 6 in readiness to enter Grade 7 next academic year.
The pupils are well prepared, he assured, adding that the school has a higher educational standard because they make sure that all the subjects are properly covered and the teachers do a very good work.
Dr Dennis said the performance of the students indicate clearly that they are ready for the start of their next academic life, which is junior secondary school.
Jennifer Nweneka Ogunsuyi, the incoming Principal of King’s Kid Academy, said she was well prepared to take the mantle of administration at King’s Kid Academy.
“I saw that there was the need for a new administrator to come in and enhance the role of the school and the academic aspect of the school. This is where am going to showcase my talent and contribute my own quota,” she assured.
She added: “I have special gifts working with children and I am very willing when it comes to dealing with children and am going to ensure discipline in the school will be maintained as well as the academic performance.”
Madam Jennifer also promised to work with the teachers as a team to improve the standard of the students.
