The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has today commissioned interactive classroom blocks in one of the public schools in Lagos.
This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen as read in part:
“I also commissioned a modular, interactive classroom block at the Vetland Junior Grammar School, Agege. Yet another milestone intervention in our ongoing transformation of the education sector in Lagos State.
“This modular building is made up of nine regular classrooms, three laboratories and four staff rooms. All of these spaces are powered by solar panels, which means guaranteed power supply to enable teaching and learning under the most conducive conditions.
“All the classrooms are equipped with interactive touch-screens, and all the students have been given electronic tablets to aid both in-class and virtual learning.
“The school has also been provided with a basketball court, and a five aside football pitch to encourage their extra-curricular activities.
“So far, our administration has constructed more than 800 new classroom blocks in the public school system of Lagos State, while also completing the rehabilitation of about 200 public primary and secondary schools, with several others ongoing.
“Our goal is to build schools of the future, public schools that are driven by cutting-edge technology and that can compete favorably with the best schools anywhere in the world”.
