The headmistress, Loral International Boarding Nursery and Primary School, Agbara, Ogun State, Mrs. Christiana Oraka, has decried the deplorable state of Agbara/Igbese road, which leads to the school, saying it is one of the challenges of the school reputed for high standard of education.
Speaking at the school’s 40th anniversary and “Family Day” celebration, Oraka called on Ogun State government to urgently repair the road, which threatens motorists, commuters and residents of the area.
“We need the Ogun State government to not only come to our aid, but also to the aid of people living here. The inability to repair this road accounts for loss of intellectual, physical and economic investments in the state,” she said.
She noted Loral School, which has continued to be a leading light in the education sector and a benchmark for molding intellectual, physical, emotional and social well-being of the pupils in recent years, has been faced with loss of pupils, including foreigners.”
“Despite the high-quality education the school offers, which also attracts foreigners, bad road remains our challenge,” Oraka lamented, adding, “Our major setback is the road from Agbara leading to the school. It is such in a deplorable state.”
While extolling the school’s Family Day, Oraka said the event was to create mutual bond among the pupils, their parents and the school community. “The Family Day is so important to us as it is set aside for parents and pupils to play, laugh and share things in common. The moments shared is our little way of promoting mutual love, respect, and trust among the pupils, teachers and parents,” the headmistress said
Highlights of the occasion were display of various activities such as cultural performances, games, drama, song renditions, among others.”
Miss Harrison Blessing, a primary school pupil and one of the graduands, said: “My stay at Loral School has taught me to stand tall, equipped me with skills and moral to achieve greatness.”
