Members of E80 Service Club of Eko Boys High School Old Boys Association (EKOBA) have donated mathematics textbooks to their alma mater.
The presentation of the books was made on Friday by a four-man delegation of E80 (1975-1980 set) led by the President of the Service Club, Mr. Akinpelu Osuntoki at the school’s premises located at Labinjo Street , Mushin, Lagos.
At the presentation which was attended by the school’s management and members of the Parents Forum, Mr Osuntoki said the donation of the books ” I-Can-Solve-It (collation of past Mathematics questions and answers) ” was meant to equip SS3 students of Eko Boys’ High School (EBHS) for better performance in their external examinations and aid their understanding of mathematics.
While commending the principal of the school, Mr A. M. Lasisi and his management team for doing a good job in nurturing the students, Mr Osuntoki urged parents to instil the virtues of diligence and hardwork in their children.
“Your children spend more time with you at home than they spend with their teachers in school. You therefore have as much role, if not more, to play in ensuring that they become good citizens in life. Whatever we have become today are largely due to what we learnt here in our student days and the contributions of our parents to our upbringing,” the E80 president said.
Receiving the textbooks, Mr Lasisi thanked members of E80 and the entire EKOBA for their sustained interest in the progress and development of the school.
Chairman of the Parents Forum, Mrs. Cephiat Tijani while appreciating the book donation urged the old students not to relent in their efforts and prayed to God to continue to bless them.
Members of E80 that accompanied their president to the event are Alhaji Mikail Adegoke Mumuni, E80 Public Relations Officer; Navy Commander Rasaki Kolawole Shodeinde (rtd) and Mr Adewunmi Aderibigbe.
