Abuja – Mrs Erinma Ugbor, Chief Executive Officer, Richland Academy, Dawaki, Abuja, on Saturday advocated compulsory childhood acquisition of Information Communication Technology (ICT) and literacy skills.
Ugbor, who spoke with newsmen at the sidelines of the First Graduation and Prize Giving Day of the school, said that childhood education was crucial to human development.
She said that early years and primary education were the foundation period during which children developed good study of habits, moral values, reflective abilities, self-discipline and basic learning skills in literacy and ICT skills.
“ We all know that early years’ foundation is very important; what you do not teach a child between the ages of six months and six years, the child will find it difficult to acquire it later.’’
She said that what made the school different from other schools was its balanced British-Nigeria curriculum.
According to Ugbor, adequate measures have been put in place to develop a balanced curriculum and a professional learning environment for the pupils and teachers.
She said that the school used modern pedagogies in teaching and learning as well as 21st century teaching and learning aids and equipment, including the interactive board. (NAN)
