The Pelican Valley Nigeria Ltd has rewarded some best behaved students, of Great Omega International Schools on Akin Adepoju Drive, Ibeshe – Titun, Ikorodu – Lagos.
The awards cut across students from the primary school to the secondary school for behaving well throughout the just concluded academic session.
The Pelican, on Wednesday, awarded 16 of the school’s youngsters who were the best behaved ones, during the school’s graduation ceremony.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Pelican Valley Nigeria Ltd, Dr Babatunde Adeyemo said the initiative of awarding the best behaved students started two-year ago.
He said “goodwill and integrity is a successful pillar for any man who wants to attain greater height in life”.
Adeyemo also said the recognition of the well behaved students would help reduce crimes, adding that students would behave well when they know they are being watched and will be rewarded for good conduct.
He said, “I am doing that to change the narrative, In anything you do in life, character is everything, I have come to realise that from my case study. I realised that those that are thriving are those that were average, but they had good character.
“For me goodwill and integrity are successful pillars for any man who wants to attain greater height in life.
“If you want to excel while creating jobs, you must have integrity and good character. In pelican we lay so much emphasis on goodwill and integrity.
“I personally made this award because i so much appreciate honesty, good character and creativity. It is the narrative in the country has changed, I want to send a note of caution to the parents by urging their children to potray good morals, because excellence without character is nothing We should encourage our children to potray good character and that is what is going to take them to the next level.
“The best thing we can do is to start changing the narrative from this level. We at the Pelican Valley so much believe in character and goodwill that is why we sponsored this award.”
The Principal of Great Omega International Schools, Mr Nwani Stanley, also affirmed that the tradition has been helpful to the student.
In the same vein, one of the beneficiaries of the award, Akinlade Daniela, an SS3 graduate expressed gratitude to the CEO Pelican Valley Nigeria LTD.
She said “this award has really helped us and shapened us, we all strive to become good representative of our school and the society wherever we found ourselves.”
