Deputy Governor Advises Students, Parents To Appreciate Teachers

Students all over have been admonished to emulate the thoughtfulness and the spirit of appreciating teachers exhibited by the final year students of the Iworoko Community High School, Iworoko-Ekiti who voluntarily contributed to entertain and take care of the teachers handling the Schools Intervention Program in their own little ways.

Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Dr Kolapo Olusola gave the advice at the school premises after taking the students through a 2-hour Mathematics intervention period.

Dr. Olusola who was really surprised and excited at the thoughtfulness of the students who gleefully gave him 2  bottles of soft drinks and packs of spicy by the students as a mark of appreciation, described the gesture as spectacular which deserved to be recognized and emulated by other students. He said that the action of the students signifies seriousness and love for academic excellence, adding that such gesture should be emulated by all parents and students to encourage and boost the morale of their teachers for better performance.

The Deputy Governor, who in turn gave the forty (40) students who attended the Mathematics lesson he handled a sum of N20,000 to be shared at N500.00 each, as a mark of appreciation, called on the students to sensitize their parents on the need to encourage teachers in order to get the best out of them.

In an interview, the Senior Prefect (Girl) of the school, Miss Faith Aribila, said that all the Senior Secondary Class 3 (SS3) of the school decided to contribute N50.00 monthly to buy the snacks and soft drinks which were given to the Schools Intervention Teachers that spend extra hours beyond the normal school hours to appreciate their
efforts.

She said that the intention was to motivate the English and Mathematics Intervention Teachers to deliver their best in preparing them for the final national external examinations. The Senior Prefect (Girl) also appreciated the Deputy Governor for taking time to fill in the gap for their Mathematics teacher who was unavoidably late to the classroom as well as for a donation of N20,000 to them.
