The Redeemer Teap International School (RTIS) has urged educational institutions to inculcate moral and ethical values in their students in order to achieve sustainable development in the country.
Its Vice Principal, Academic, Mr Godwin Orum, gave the advice on Saturday at the 2023 Graduation ceremony of the school in Abuja.
Orum said that if moral and ethical values were placed in the fertile minds of children, they would be able to grow and develop as transformational citizens and leaders.
According to him, this is the most important pathway towards achieving sustainable development in the country.
He said that the school was committed to promoting ethics, integrity and best practices in the conduct of its examinations.
”Among the factors that propelled the school to the status of preferred day school of choice are holistic education, rooted in Godliness.
”Others are prioritisation of safety and security of learners and teachers and continuous professional development of staff,” he said.
He added that in line with its social responsibility initiative, the school offered low and affordable fees for parents.
Also speaking, the Principal of the school, Mr Oladimeji Yusuf said the school had offered full scholarship to assist an indigent among graduating students to give equal opportunity to all qualified students.
Speaking on the hike in fees owing to the removal of fuel subsidy, Yusuf, who said the school was non-profit organisation, said it had not increased its fees.
He advised students to maintain the good culture learnt in the school and also have a good character that would sustain them with the excellence already built in them.
”We are employing all educational stakeholders to support education to make it better than what it is currently, then we can give holistic education to Nigerian children.
”At redeemer school, we do not increase fees because it is not profit making organisation; so, we make our fees affordable,” he said.
Our correspondent reports that the school’s population with 800 students and 150 qualified teachers graduated 115 students, 69 from the junior class while 46 from the senior class.
