Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has commissioned a state-of-the-art secondary school in Elemoro Community Ibeju Lekki local government.
The governor said the building of Elemoro Community Junior Secondary School will ensure pupils from the community no longer have to walk long-distance before they have access to schools.
The school, a state-of-the-art edifice at Ibeju Lekki Local Government Area is built with a college-size football pitch completed with 50mm-thick pile of grass and soft infills to ensure playability and fall absorption impact.
The school is built on 1.54 hectares of land and is designed to offer leaning services, recreational activity and extracurricular leisures.
The governor said: “Our administration conceived and initiated this school project as an intervention to address a shortfall in access to education in the community. Before the school was built, pupils in the town usually had to walk long distance to schools outside their community.
“The infrastructure installed in the premises offers the platform through which the pupils can fulfill their dreams and ambitions for the future.”
Apart from 18-classroom block, the Elemoro Junior Secondary School also has 12 standard classrooms, six special rooms for Home Economics, Technology room, a studio for arts and music, science laboratory, library and ICT room. It also has teachers’ offices, sickbay, standard canteen block and over 30 toilet facilities.
Other recreational facilities built in the school include a six-lane sandwich athletics running track and a spacious seating arena.
Sanwo-Olu said his administration’s vision in education is to ensure every child in public school has unrestricted access to quality education.
