Proprietor, Bestwill Nursery and Primary School, Bucknor Estate, Ejigbo, Pastor FalanaÂ Joseph has called on parents to hand down a good legacy to their children as education is the best amongst other inheritances parents can give to their children. He gaveÂ this advice recently while delivering a speech at the graduating ceremony of the pupils which took place at the school premises.
According to Falana, the name of the school â€˜Bestwillâ€™ came into existence as a result of what normally happen in our society after the death of any parent, where the properties and money are shared amongst the children and relations as written in the will of the deceased or forcefully taken by relations if the will is not clearly spelt out, adding that, the only inheritanceÂ parents can give to their children which no one can struggle with or taken from him is education.
Speaking to the graduating pupils, Falana emphasised the need for the pupils to be of good behaviour both at school and home as this will portray the type of school and home they came from. He further said that, maintaining the educational excellent performance at this early stageÂ is very important even in their next classes, stressing that hard work is the key to consistent performance.
â€œYou did well today because you listen to your teachers, did your home works and put on studying spirit. The more you study, the more you know and understand what you read, he said.â€ â€œNo matter the money paid or invested in a child education, if such child is doing well in his studies will encourage the parent to go extra mile in training him, he added.â€
At Bestwill Nursery and Primary School, according to Pastor Falana, the impartation of computer knowledge to itsÂ pupils at the early age is pivotal, adding that in our contemporary, there is no way a student can succeed before and after graduation without being computer literate as almost everything these days passes through internet and without basic computer knowledge, you cannot operate the internet. CitingÂ instances of registering and checking studentsâ€™ WAEC, NECO and JAMB examinations online.
He enjoinedÂ parents to encourage their children and wards who have flair for computer knowledge by purchasing a good one at home so that they will not only depend on that of the school.
Furthermore, the pupils in their usual manner showcase their talents in cultural dance, choreography, computer recitation and fashion parades to elicit the spirit of ceremony amongst graduands and well wishers.
