THE PRIMARY SCHOOL I ATTENDED
By Wisdom Iruemi
Most times I thank God for attending a wonderful primary school which laid a solid foundation in my life. My Primary school is very grand having three storeys impressively structured building and located in the commercial hub of Nigeria, Lagos State. It is situated around 3 km from my home and I go to school by bus. My primary school is one of the best schools in Lagos state. It is located at very peaceful place without any pollution, noise and dust. School building has two staircases at both ends which lead us to every floor. It has well equipped and big library, well instrumented science lab and one computer lab at first floor. At ground floor there is a school auditorium where all the annual functions, meetings, PTM, dance competitions takes place.
Director’s office, head office, clerk room, staff room and common study room are located at ground floor. The school canteen, stationery shop, chess room and skating hall are also located at ground floor. My school has two big playgrounds in front of the school principal office while swimming pool lies in the side of it. My school has a small green garden, in front of the head office, full of colourful flowers and decorative plants which enhance the beauty of the entire school complex. Around 350 students have taken admission in my school. They always rank higher in any inter-school competitions.
The study norms of my school are very creative and innovative which helps us in understanding any tough matters very easily. Our teachers teach us very sincerely and tell us everything practically. My school ranks first in any programme like inter-school cultural pursuits and sports activities. My school celebrates all the important days of the year such as Sports Day, Teacher’s Day, Parents’ Day, Children’s Day, School Anniversary Day, Independence Day, Christmas Day, Mother’s Day, Happy New Year, etc in a grand manner.
We participated in the co-curricular activities such as swimming, school band, singing, dancing, etc. Students having unfair behavior and undisciplined activities are punished by the class teacher as per the school norms. The school principal took classes of every student daily in the meeting hall for 10 minutes to deal with our character formation, etiquette, moral education, acquiring good values and respecting others. Our school time is very interesting and enjoyable as we do lots of creative and practical works daily. Our oral assessment of storytelling, singing, poem recitation, conversation in English is taken by the class teacher on daily basis. So, my school was one of the best primary schools in Nigeria.
