The Lagos Preparatory School, LPS has reiterated its commitment to sensitise children on the ecological effects of inappropriate disposal of single use plastic in the oceans. This was just as it also raised funds to support a local school and educate the children on the effects of single use plastic on the environment through their annual Fun Day.
Headmaster, Mr Nicholas Barrett who spoke with journalists in Lagos said: ”Beyond the classroom, LPS is keen to raise well-rounded children and has adopted the Premier Foundation Preparatory School at Makoko. Students volunteer their time and resources to give back to the students.
”Members of LPS will be visiting PFPS to present them with the funds raised at the recent Fun Day and to share the joy of Christmas by donating shoe boxes filled with presents for the children.”
While stressing the ecological effects of inappropriate disposal of single use plastic in the oceans, Mr Barrett explained why this year’s Fun Day was themed ‘Eco Kids Go Under the Sea’.
He reiterated that it served to sensitise the children on the ecological effects of inappropriate disposal of single use plastic in the oceans.
On the educational performance of LPS, Mr Barrett disclosed that in the results of the ‘Diplome d’etudes en Langue Francaise’ (DELF Prim) released recently, students of LPS recorded a 100% success rate in the French Exams.
He said: ”The DELF Prim examinations, organised by the French Ministry of Education is a medium to monitor the progress and linguistic competence of French language learners in English speaking countries.
”85% of the students achieved scores of 70% and higher with some student scoring as high as 98%. Of the other 15%, every student attained at least 60%.
”The news was well received on the back of the recent SAT results that recorded 100% pass in English and 95% Pass in Mathematics. Members of the LPS Family are excited about the school’s excellent academic standing internationally.”
