Why We Celebrated  Our Champions -Principal 

In a jubilant event held at the heart of Ogun State, the Adegboyega Musliu Biodun School recently hosted an exuberant celebration to honor their brilliant students who had excelled in the inter-state competition of vocabulary development and mathematics. 

The competition, organized by Erudyte Global Edutainment Limited, attracted participants from various states, including the bustling metropolises of Lagos and Oyo.

Principal Adegboyega Musliu Biodun was brimming with pride as he shared the school’s journey in the competition. He began by recounting the humble origins of the students’ participation, noting that it all started at the local government level.

 The students’ remarkable performance in this initial phase earned them a spot in the Ogun State competition, where they once again stood out. But it didn’t stop there, as they went on to compete with students from other states.

“From this school, we have three of them,” Principal Adegboyega proudly declared. “One of them is the overall winner for vocabulary development.”

When asked how he felt about this achievement, the principal stressed the importance of his physical presence at the event. He explained, “It is not the manner of feeling.

” I was there because I had to monitor the program. I was monitoring it at home, but when it got to the level where I had to be there, I had to go there to look at things myself.”

However, the path to victory was not without its challenges. Principal Adegboyega revealed that some teachers from another school attempted to influence the outcome of the competition.

 “We have some teachers from another school that wanted to influence the outcome,” he stated, “but we had to make our stand firm so that another person is not declared the winner. With how things went on, they really appreciated the effort of our students.”

He attributed the victory to the joint effort of dedicated teachers and eager-to-learn students.

“It was the result of effort that was already in place by the teachers because this success can never be recorded without the effort of the teachers. 

The students, too, are ready to learn, or else they cannot achieve this excellent performance.”

Principal Adegboyega concluded with a message to the government.

“I just hope that when the government sees the outcome of this competition, they will have to support the organizers so that similar programs can be held for public schools. It’s essential to provide opportunities like this to nurture and showcase the talents of our students.” 

The event was not just a celebration of champions but a call for continued support and investment in education for all.

She stressed the importance of both teachers and parents working together for the students’ success. 

“The school can’t achieve great things if parents don’t provide their unwavering support,” she noted.

Another teacher,  Bakare Soyemi Fadhilat, an English and literature teacher at the school, expressed her immense joy and confidence following the remarkable victory of the students in an inter-school competition.

 She emphasized that their success could not have been possible without divine intervention, stating, “nothing can come without the help of Almighty Allah. So the only thing we need to do is just appreciate Him.”

The competition, which witnessed the participation of numerous schools from different states, was a platform where their students had the chance to shine.

“We pray that Almighty Allah should continue to enrich the pocket of their parents, because they pay for the form, they assisted them in different ways,” she conveyed.

With humility and wisdom, the dedicated teacher urged the school to acknowledge and appreciate their teaching staff, as their unwavering commitment was an essential factor in the students’ success.

 “And I also pray that the school should try as much as possible to encourage the teachers and show more appreciation  to the teachers, because if they are not doing what they were supposed to be doing, they may not be able to achieve this, so more appreciations to the teachers,” she emphasized.

In her final words, Soyemi  appealed for the growth of knowledge among the students, seeking the guidance of Allah in their educational journeys.
