PARENTS whose children attend Babcock High School Ilishan-Remo, Ogun State, have described the school as an institution to reckon with in the country.
Speaking with Tribune Education last week during the school’s 21st graduation ceremony, a parent, Mrs Bisi Makinde, she discovered that Babcock High School was as an institution where children could develop their intellectual capacity with godly character.
She noted that the Babcock’s learning environment is study-friendly, and “a Christian-based school where you can entrust your child for academic excellence and moral upbringing.”
Also speaking in the same vein, Mrs. Julie Adefulu, another parent, said the quality of teaching staff and the infrastructural development in the school informed her decision to bring her wards to the school.
She said four of her children have passed through the school, and they are doing well in their academic pursuits at the tertiary level.
Meanwhile, as the school celebrated its 21st graduation, the school management, headed by Mrs Bolanle Adebawojo, presented three projects worth not less than N133 million for inauguration as part of efforts to boost learning in the school.
During the event, the Parent-Teacher Association of the school, headed by Mr Akin Awodeyi-Akinsehinwa, presented an e-library building worth about N150 million to the school on behalf of the association.
The project, he said, was part of the association’s contribution to the development of the school in the area of Information Technology development.
Similarly, the principal of the school, Dr (Mrs) Adebawojo, presented a vocational centre worth about N78 million for entrepreneurship programme in the school.
Speaking earlier, the vice chancellor of Babcock University, Professor Ademola Tayo, reiterated the mission of the school to equip students with the skill to cope in their next level of their career as well as in the society.
