The Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB) has charged graduates of the just concluded Excellence in Child Education and Learning (EKOEXCEL) programme to make effective teaching in classrooms their priorities.
Mr Wahab Alawiye-King, the Executive Chairman of the board, gave the charge the graduation ceremony which held at Vetland Grammar School, Agege and the CMS Primary School, Bariga, respectively on Thursday.
He said that he believed that they would have be retrained and up-skilled on the use of technology-driven devices.
EKOEXCEL is an education reform programme, organised to develop more highly skilled teachers through training, as well as supporting and motivating existing government teachers to succeed.
“We see you as our service providers, and I want you to go back to the classrooms with renewed energy while you must incorporate effective domain of teaching and learning into whatever you do.
“It is on this platform that we can show our emotions, care, love and concerns, because these are what EKOEXCEL is all about. It is about instilling discipline, inculcating the right values .
“It is also for promoting and cultivating necessary societal values and we cannot do that without you and therefore, your support will help to make these objectives a reality.
“I am using this opportunity to congratulate you all” he said.
The chairman also appreciated the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu led government for it’s passion, commitment and development to basic education in Lagos.
He advised the teachers to challenge themselves by leaving their comfort zone, be adventurous, adding that there was the need to make the best use of the training they received to explore new opportunities and become volunteers.
“That is part of what EKOEXCEL is all about, appreciating people that have distinguished themselves or done marvelously well, so the 30 volunteers will be joining the board for a special dinner,” he added.
Mr Bayo Adefuye, a permanent member of the board incharge of EKOEXCEL, told newsmen on the sidelines that the training, was meant to incorporate the integration of technology into education right from the primary school level.
He said that the training was necessary for the teachers.
Adefuye added that the teachers who had gone through months of training had been adequately formed and empowered to bring out the best in the children they would be teaching.
According to him, the children of today are the next and upcoming generation and their future must be tailored well and guided jealously.
“The zeal to have our teachers deliver quality teaching using modern technology device has given birth to this EKOEXCEL programme and I must say, with all modesty that the teachers have been adequately empowered.
“Kudos to our governor for this laudable initiative and for having this commitment to ensure that our teachers are globally competitive and digital, it is indeed a successful programme,” he added.
