Four Nigerian schools have been honoured by the British Council for implementing core teaching and learning skills that shaped global thinking and built global citizens.
Precious Idaewor, spokesperson of the British Council in Nigeria, said in a statement that the awardees included Hallel College, Port-Harcourt; Oxbridge Tutorial College, Lagos; Redeemer’s International School, Lagos; and Start-Rite School, Abuja.
Louisa Waddingham, who presented the awards on behalf of the Council, urged educators to recognise and solve problems in innovative ways that facilitated constructive human relationships.
The British Council official said that the programme focused on developing essential leadership skills which were uniquely applied to embedding international dimension into the curriculum and ethos of a school.
In her address, Folasade Adefisayo, former Executive Director, Corona Schools Trust Council, noted that the quality of teaching had significant impact on the success of a child and the society at large.
According to her, “the school system cannot rise beyond the level of the teachers.”
