Lagos -Students from some private schools around Lagos on Wednesday visited the ongoing Trade Fair to acquire knowledge about it, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports.
Some of the schools’ coordinators told NAN in Lagos that the visit was to educate the students on the importance and advantages derivable from trade fairs.
Mr Nicon Osakunme, the coordinator of Specialist Mathematical Academy said this had been a yearly activity through which students acquire more knowledge.
“We have been to the NAFDAC and Educational Advancement Centre pavilions.
“ We ensure the students are exposed to the importance of checking the manufacturing and expiry dates of items on display before they buy them.
“They have been to a software developer here who taught them that they can download certain software on their cell phones that can enhance their studies individually.
“This software will enable them learn through their phones.’’
Onaayomiposi Adesola, a student from the school said she had not been keen on checking expiry date of whatever goods she bought but now would make amends.
” I don’t check expiry date before now, this exposure has spurred that in me now,’’ Adesola said.
Divine Okorie, also a student from the same school said she was told that there was software that could be installed on cell phones that explains various subjects to students.
“I can learn from my cell phone at my leisure if I am able to buy the software and install it on my phone,’’ she said.
Mr Olugbenga Olushola, the Coordinator of Peter-Bay Private Schools, said the school had decided to bring in about 50 students to the trade fair to be exposed to products from most companies.
“ We have visited Delta and Lagos states’ pavilions where we were taught the importance of been creative.
“We were shown some edible snacks and handmade craft.’’
Ayobami Awe, a student of the schools said that she now believed that education is life. Whatever you learn helps build you up and improve your creativity.
Joy Onochie also said that the snacks tasted differently from the common ones and were beautifully packaged.
NAN reports that students from the Lagos State Technical College, Agidigbi and Fesfun Covenant Private School also visited the fair. (NAN)
