Why are we so messed up as a nation. How did we get here in the first instance and how do we get out

This one breaks me all the time...

Yesterday I was telling my younger brother of how I heard of a certain science teacher in my locality who went online to get values for physics practical experiments last year instead of doing the experiments with his students and they all failed when the results came out....

And my brother remarked...

"He didn't get his values from the right site na."

He further enlightened me as he had done before, on several sites on the internet where by sending recharge cards of N400 naira, students have access to questions and answers of the exams they are writing, real-time. With a subscription of N800 naira the answers are sent directly to your phone, with N400 naira you have to go online to get your answers.



These sites always have all exam papers, probably a day or two before the exams. And they have the solutions too. And they are several of them: Naijaclass.com, Examcrown.com, Exponet.com, examsort.com, Gurus.com, etc. doing adverts, competing for patronage like legitimate businesses.

On these sites are the testimonies of Nigerian students. "Thank you XXX for making me pass." "God bless you for saving me." "You people are the best, I have so so distinctions." I just saw the testimony of a student on Exam Crown who got 7 A1 and a B3 from using their service.

I went to one such sites yesterday at the risk of getting a heart attack. I always knew they existed but had deliberately avoided them. And lo, in front of me were solutions to the physics exam students were sweating in the hall on yesterday. The solutions online were posted on the 19th, a day before the exam. Students typically have access to the solutions a few minutes to the commencement of the exams, of course to make maximum 'sales' as PINs could be shared if the answers were released earlier. Several of these students still need the cooperation of invigilators and their schools to use their phones in the exam halls to access the answers, while others take advantage of large examination centres to do their thing surreptitiously. Visit one of these sites and see how so damn easy it is to pass. It breaks my heart as a teacher.

My bro says those sites basically insult NECO. Their own questions are online two days before the exams, sometimes they do bonanza and give people answers for free for NECO exams. When WAEC sends teachers specimen lists ten days before the exams these guys have them online weeks before the exams.

See what education in our country has been reduced to. Why will our students read when they can pass with N400 naira recharge cards? Why will they not laugh at the teachers that try to make them study hard? When a budget of 4000 naira will get them through ten subjects. Why do we train students for six years in secondary school and not let them write their exams because we are doing "business"? Why does everything about this society has to be about making money?



So we have students getting 8 distinctions now and 300 in UTME yet having no substance in their heads. These ones will gain admissions into university, blocking the chances of the good students who legitimately got their 5 credits and 220 in UTME. So many of our good students won't gain admission. My John James couldn't gain admission with a score of 260+ in UTME last year. God'stime is a great student but he'd be lucky to gain admission with his 280+ this year.

Why are we so messed up as a country? Why does insanity thrive so openly? Who are these Nigerians who are destroying this system for pecuniary gains? Aren't they the same Nigerians who complain daily of the state of this country? Aren't they the youth who should be the future of this country? The same young people who cry daily of how our father's generation failed us? Have we all gotten to the point were we've decided that Nigeria is irredeemable and the only course of action is burning its rubble to ashes?

The rot in education is particularly sad, because it has ripple effects, spreading across all sectors. Imagine students using these sites to get 8 distinctions and 330 so they can go study medicine and surgery to become doctors. Imagine them wanting to become engineers, scientists, lawyers, etc. They'd most likely have to oil their way through school and come out deficient in whatever fields they find themselves in...even with great results.



Are our exam bodies unaware of these sites? Are we saying nothing can be done? Can the phone numbers these recharge cards are sent to not be tracked? Can the sites not be shut down somehow?

I just don't understand this country. Tiring.

This is just unfortunate. Young Nigerians lacking ingenuity in ideas and morality in behaviour.

This is just unfortunate. Young Nigerians lacking ingenuity in ideas and morality in behaviour.

Permit me to say that the students, parents, teachers and government all share from the blame in 1:2:3:4 respectively (my opinion).

》The students have the least of the blame because they are vulnerable and rightly so.

》The parents share a larger portion than the students for failing to uphold family values within the unit of the family. A child that is well trained from home will strive to behave well at all times, speak the truth and won't have the flair for illegal misdmeanours.

》 The Teachers share a much larger share of the blame because they should serve as role models for all students and strongly fight against exam malpractice whilst maintaining the highest discipline possible in all our institutions. The teaching profession should not be a last resort for job seekers but rather a job for highly skilled and well paid professionals.

》Lastly the government, I don't even know where to start but one thing is certain.... *Misplaced priorities* is their problem. A country that its government priotises the funding of static sectors of its economy e.g entertainment, tourism etc and abandons the dynamic sectors, most especially education, science and technology, will never achieve development of any kind.

Take a look at the so-called world powers today, USA, UK, Germany, France, China, Russia even North Korea etc....they all have something in common and which is; extremely high standard of education across all levels.
A total revamp of our education is needed to arrest the situation. May God.save us, our children and future generations from this plague affecting our growth as a nation.

Types of Teachers in our Days

Parting gift..


Types of Teachers in our Days

1) *The restricted professional*.
This teachers does the job in a basic way, but with no sparks. Goes on courses when told to. Copies rather than develops what s/he's taught. Doesn't notice what other teachers do.


2) *The extended professional*.

This teacher also does the job but is constantly looking for ways of improving practice. Goes on courses and is often disappointed or even angered by them. Develops rather than copies ideas. Is interested in what other teachers do. Has understood that we wouldn't trust a doctor who didn't keep up and innovative. So there is no reason to trust a teacher that doesn't either.

3) *The technician*

This person is a different animal in the classroom from what he is in public. Has to work on technique because to act naturally would cause trouble. This is not necessarily a bad thing because this teacher may well be constantly thinking about his or her work.

4) *The natural*

Apart from the beer, the flirtation, the politics and the risque jokes, what he is in public is what he is in the classroom. This has advantages but it also has disadvantages. Perhaps this teacher would gain from work on technique.


5) *The cynic*

Usually sits in the same chair in the staffroom everyday. Has his or her own mug. Has been wherever you think it might be good for you and your class to go...it wasn't much good and s/he doesn't recommend it.

*Reflection*
What type of teacher are you, based on the typology above ?

THE DAILY FOUNTAIN DEVOTIONAL CHURCH OF NIGERIA (ANGLICAN COMMUNION)

DATE: FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2018
READING:


1 John 2:1-11 KJV

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
TOPIC: EVIDENCE THAT YOU KNOW GOD

There are things in life you need to be sure about because so much depends on the outcome. Your salvation is such an issue.  The Bible warns that many are deceived about this crucial matter (Luke 13:27). Christianity is not just knowing about God but knowing God.  John 17:3 says, "This is eternal life that they may know you, the only true God and Jesus Christ whom you have sent." Christianity at its heart is, knowing God personally through Jesus Christ.

Our text identifies practical evidence that may help you be sure that you know God personally.  Some of the evidences are that you: Fellowship with the brethren, keep God's Commandments, walk as Jesus walked and love the brethren.  God's Commandments are in the New Testament.  Let us mention a few here.  Christians are commanded to: abstain from idols (Acts 15:20); awake to righteousness (1Cor. 15:34); ask in order to receive (Mathew 7:7), and many more.  To walk as Jesus walked means doing everything with the aim of pleasing your heavenly Father.  Jesus said "My food is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work" (John 4:34).  Love of the brethren is also paramount.  In all, God expects you to live an exemplary life that others may see Him through you.

What products does a teacher really produce?

*Pass on to the teachers you know.*πŸ‘Œ

Dedicated to all the teachers

From A School Principal's speech at a graduation......

He said "The Doctor wants his child to become a doctor...
the Engineer wants his child to become an engineer...
The Businessman wants his ward to become CEO...
BUT a teacher also wants his child to become one of them, as well..!!
Nobody wants to become a teacher BY CHOICE"...
Very sad but that's the truth..!!

The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.

One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He
argued, "What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best
option in life was to become only a teacher?"

To stress his point he said to another guest;
"You're a teacher, Mrs Sharma. Be honest. What do you make?"

Teacher Mrs Sharma, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness
replied, "You want to know what I make?
(She paused for a second, then began...)

"Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.

I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor winner.

I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents
can't make them sit for 5 min. without an I- Pod, Game Cube or movie
rental.

You want to know what I make?

(She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table)

I make kids wonder.

I make them question.

I make them apologize and mean it.

I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

I teach them how to write and then I make them write.
Keyboarding isn't everything.

I make them read, read, read.

I make them show all their work in math.

They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.

I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to
know about India while preserving their unique cultural identity.

I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were
given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.

(Mrs Sharma paused one last time and then continued.)

Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing
money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no
attention because they are ignorant. You want to know what I make?

I MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN ALL YOUR LIVES, EDUCATING KIDS AND PREPARING
THEM TO BECOME CEO's, AND DOCTORS AND ENGINEERS...

What do you make Mr. CEO? Only money?

His jaw dropped; he went silent.

THIS IS WORTH SENDING TO ENCOURAGE OUR TEACHERS 
πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Actually very worth sending again & again - especially to those from
other professions who think they are above teachers

What is the most important part of the body

My Father used to ask me what the most important part of the body is. Through the years I would take a guess at what I thought was the correct Answer.-

When I was younger, I thought sound was very important to us as humans, so I said, "My ears, Daddy."

He said, "No. Many people are deaf. But you keep thinking about it
and I will ask you again soon."

Several years passed before he asked me again. Since making my first attempt, I had contemplated the correct answer.

So this time I told him, "Daddy, sight is very important to everybody, so it must be our eyes."

He looked at me and told me, "You are learning fast, but the answer is not correct because
there are many people who are blind."

Stumped again, I continued my quest for knowledge and over the years, Father asked me a couple more times and always his answer was, "No. But you are getting smarter every year, my child."

Then one year, my mother died. Everybody was hurt. Everybody was crying.

My Father looked at me when it was our turn to say our final good-bye to my Mother. He asked me, "Do you know the most important body part yet, my dear?"

I was shocked when he asked me this now. I always thought this was a game between him and me.
He saw the confusion on my face and told me, "This question is very important. It shows that you have really lived in your life. For every body part you gave me in the past, I have told you were wrong and
I have given you an example why.

But today is the day you need to learn this important lesson."

He looked down at me and threw his head to my shoulder and hugged me. I saw his eyes well up with tears. He said, "My dear, the most important body part is your shoulder."

I asked, "Is it because it holds up my head?"

He replied, "No, it is because it can hold the head of a friend or a loved one when they cry. Everybody needs a shoulder to cry on sometime in life, my dear. I only hope that you have enough love and friends that you will always have a shoulder to cry on when you need it."

Then and there I knew the most important body part is not a selfish one. It is made for others and not for yourself. It is sympathetic to the pain of others.

People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did.
But people will NEVER forget how you made them feel.

The origination of this letter is unknown, but it brings a blessing to everyone who passes it on. Good friends are like stars...You don't always see them, but you always know they are there.

Share this with a friend even if it is a repeat message, I just did!

"Whatever you do, do it to your fullest and the rest leave it to God Almighty"

Prince Yemisi Shyllon... A man to learn a lot from. A true life lesson that could transform lives


I want this to be circulated to all our staff. They have a lot to learn. And the lessons could change some lives:

LIFE LESSONS GUEST COACH 2

PRINCE YEMISI SHYLLON

Prince Yemisi Shyllon is somewhat an enigma. He is many things rolled into one: he is a chartered engineer, chartered stockbroker, chartered marketer, chartered business administrator, qualified lawyer and consummate art collector. And he has excelled in all!

The first time I visited Shyllon's house standing on a stretch of almost a whole street (13 years ago), it took him three unbroken hours to conduct me round all the rooms housing his assorted art collections. When I went there last week for this interview, so much had taken place that it would take a whole day to go round and we might not even finish.
He is widely reckoned to own the most balanced art collections with over 7,000 artworks comprising sculptures, paintings, and other media which are valued to be worth several billions of Naira -although he doesn't want to be drawn into the issue of costing.
Quietly, Shyllon, who retired as Marketing Director from Nigerite a couple of years back, is creating what could be described as a revolution in the arts arena. He is getting set to commission the first privately-funded public museum with the Pan-Atlantic University, Lekki, Lagos, which construction plus the art content is expected to be over N4 billion at the current market value when completed. He has endowed the only professorial chair in Visual Art at the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) among other things.
While we were in his bedroom admiring all his art collections, I asked him what was the driving force for all those collections. His answer: "By the time I am gone, I want my name to be in the realm of immortality by turning over all my major collections into the public museum I am building."
You sure will enjoy Shyllon's insights on how to build wealth from ground zero up.

Lesson 1
Plan your future from the first day you start work.

I started planning my personal finance the very first day I started work because I was conscious of the fact that you never could tell what would happen tomorrow. When I finished my MBA (Master in Business Administration), I bought a plot of land at Ejigbo, in Lagos State, and built two houses of four flats each there. That was the kind of attitude I had as a young man.
At the same time I was investing in real estate, I also started investing in shares which over time earned me fortune. I started buying shares when I was at the University of Ibadan (UI). They were selling shares then, 60 or 68 kobo; as a student, I would just buy about 100 shares, 200 shares, buy art work. I am reaping from this today. I was conscious of the fact that little drops of water make a mighty ocean. The little I have is based on self-deprivation, being visionary, and taking up opportunities that came my way .

LESSON 2
Educate yourself very well.

When you spend money to invest in educating yourself, you move yourself ahead of the pack who do not believe in this because the more you know, the deeper you see. Spend time reading and educating yourself. Aspire to know more about what you are getting involved in . I decided to become a chartered stockbroker because I was investing in shares. I knew it was going to be a large part of my investment portfolio in future and my stockbroking knowledge has helped me a lot.
Also, I decided to study Law because I was thinking about old age and the fact that I was going to be involved in a lot of properties, I don't want to be paying lawyers. Today, when I sign agreements I take advantage of being a lawyer. I don't go to court, but I am servicing myself and my family. You must develop yourself personally. For instance, I am not an artist, but I have learnt a lot about artistry. I spend time to learn what I do.

LESSON 3
Don't use all your hands to eat.

Don't use all your hands to eat. Remember there will be time when what you have may not be available again, and you will have to rely on what you had put together. When I was working, I had a policy, 10 per cent of my money every month must go into investment. I am talking about liquid investment, and another 10 per cent would go into non-liquid investment. The remaining 80 per cent we used to take care of myself and my family. When you spend all the money you get, you have eaten both the seed and the harvest. You have sown a seed of disaster into your future.

LESSON 4
Don't borrow; don't lend.

That is one thing I learnt from The Richest Man in Babylon. It said, never borrow, never lend, and I have maintained that principle since I read that book many years ago. It says, put aside 10 per cent of what you have and one day, it will grow to become something great. It says when you lend, you don't get back what you give out, you will diminish, you will create enemies in the process, and they would pay you in bits. 'Never borrow, never lend' principle allows you to develop the instinct to save and put on your thinking cap towards investing in the future.

LESSON 5
Don't trust people on face value.
While I was working, I employed a young man at a low level in whom I had so much confidence, and I believed he could be groomed to by my successor. I allowed him some privileges like going for his MBA while working . He also went to study Law as I did. So, I was like a hero to him. But I did not listen to the suggestion of the people who hinted that my protΓ©gΓ© was not what he claimed to be. That turned out a disaster because I later discovered that the guy hid so many things about his past from me. So, I tell people that if I had to live my life all over again, before I venture into any kind of relationship with anybody, I will find out about his/her pedigree.

LESSON 6
Go with your passion.

From my inside, I knew I was an artist. I did Arts till Class Three in the secondary school. In my time, you had to be a scientist to be said to be brilliant and I took pride in being a genius at Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. So, I did Sciences, I dropped Arts. But it was in me; as a kid I used to trace a lot, but I foolishly dropped Arts. But by a combination of forces, my interest in art was rekindled and I started collecting artworks. I have been collecting them since 1976. Right now, I have over 7,000 artworks in my house. I have an invaluable collection of arts, spreading from the 9th century Igbo-Ukwu Art to date. My collections cover all the history of the Nigerian Art. So, I am back to my first love.

Lesson 7
Don't let your taste rise with your status.
The major error I see many people make is to allow their taste to catch up with their rising status. When I was the Marketing Manager at UAC, I was living at Olodi Apapa (Ajegunle) and paying a rent of N200. Shortly after, I became a Director with a housing allowance of N65,000 per annum, but I retained my Olodi Apapa accommodation for 15 months. I put the money together, and within two years, I bought the land off Allen Avenue, Ikeja, for N125,000 on which I built my five-storey building. It now fetches me about N18 million per annum. I was putting my money in a cooperative, and when it matured I took N500,000. My housing allowance at the time had become N250,000 per annum; I collected it for two years, and built the N1.2 million five-storey building in 1989. My first rent was four N4million. I can go on like that.
After 15 months at Olodi, I moved to GRA (in Ikeja) where I rented a house for N15,000 per annum, even when my annual housing allowance was N250,000. It was a three-bedroom bungalow. I was living low.

THE MAJOR MISTAKE
First is trusting people too much.
I am somebody that trusts to a fault. I take people as if they are like me, and I have been beaten very hard. One example is my wife's cousin who came to me and said he and others were setting up a bank, Eagle Credit Bank, when former President Ibrahim Babangida's Administration was issuing banking licences. When I told him I did not have money, he said they could use my five-storey building as equity. Eventually, the licence did not come, and they had borrowed heavily, and it was a problem repaying the loan. Unfortunately, I gave a personal guarantee. Before I knew what was happening, they wanted to sell my house to redeem the loan. But thank God, I put my knowledge of Law into good use and that saved the house.

WISEST DECISION
When I was building my wealth, I called my wife and we agreed that all our children should go to public schools, as opposed to the more expensive private schools. All our children attended public schools. By the grace of God, my three children are abroad now. Two have finished their Master's degrees and are working, while the last born is rounding off his right now. I can afford it because I have investments to back me up. One must plan one's future, not in line with what another person is doing but what one thinks is good for one. I was lucky to have married a woman who agreed with me.



Many of us are having serious financial problems in our lives not because we don't have access to money BUT we are bad money managers

*Ensuring Students' Success In Work & Life*

*Ensuring Students' Success In Work & Life*

The theme of the discussion @ the 2018 *Supreme Education Foundation Schools' Teachers Learning Camp*.

The emphasis was on the need to nurture students beyond academics and expose them to life skills for integration into the society and to help in finding their path for fulfilment.

In achieving this, management support is needed, teachers play a major role in navigating the learning path and believing in the students' abilities. Parents' understanding is required in this great task of producing a wholistic individual whose concern should be tailored towards serving humanity and making the world a better place.

It takes a hard working and passionate teacher to make a change and impact lives. When positive changes occur, it results in impacting lives.

Educators play major role in students' success ranging from:
 
#Copied
*THE TEACHERS' PERSONALITY*
This refers to the teacher's human relationship with the learners, his physical appearance, the way he speaks, his temper and mannerism. 
According to a renowned educationist, *''A teacher needs not be beautiful, handsome or splendidly dressed. But neatness is a must. A proper attire, a cheeful appearance and an air of confidence do much to project a pleasing appearance which will no doubt bring enthusiastic learner response. On the other hand, a teacher who projects the image of a loser or one who tries too hard to project the image of class and superiority will do much to deter positive response from the learners who are ever in need of someone who is friendly, respectable and reachable''*
 From the above quote, the teacher's personality can degrade or promote the teaching and learning process.

*HOW TO HONE YOUR PERSONALITY AS A TEACHER TO THE MISSION OF TEACHING*
1. Dress decently and modestly to classroom
2. Give active presentation during teaching
3. Give brisk and clear instructions
4. Call your learners by their names
5. Discipline should be commesurate with offences committed
6. Have considerations for your learners
7. Do not demand and eat your learners' food or drink. Also, do not demand and collect money from your learners/ their parents
8. Be strict, firm but kind

*Contributions* 
*Also create an avenue for those who might wants to express themselves unreluctantly meaning,wait to hear from them as well.

*Be fair and confident

*Believe in your students- The power of education is seen when students are helped to unleash their creativity to improve the circumstances of their lives.

*My thoughts*
 "Operate the principle of the 3 F's. Be fair, firm and friendly. See every child as an individual and talented without making comparison.

*Model the expected positive behaviour you expect from them. Do what you say.
* Engage them in learning activities
* Give meaningful project works that teach life skills.
* Relate learning to real life situations.

Thanks

Good Morning Excellent Brainians and Happy weekend.

The True Essence Of life

Every body is moving st his own time-line 

The private sector must stop abusing quality assurance



School Owners, STOP increasing salaries or promoting your staff without formal appraisal and written examination because despite how you and I disbelief in the quality of practice in the public sector, the government does not promote without promotion examination.

Additionally, please note that how long a staff has stayed with you is not a standalone yardstick for promotion rather; professional achievement so far with you, moral standing, skill empowerment within the time, academic advancement, knowledge improvement and code of conduct compliance.

The private sector must stop abusing quality assurance




Term by term school activities to develop pupils


It aches to record statistically, distinctly higher number of schools that don't conduct term to term competitions aside inter-house sport.

A good school must have steady per term all round education based competitions covering cognitive, psychomotor and affective.

Under Cognitive
1. Mathematics Competition
2. Spelling Bee
3. Creative Writing
4. Debate
5. Speech
6. Reading
7. Handwriting
8. Quiz
9. Current Affairs
10. Coding
ETC

Under Psychomotor
1. Inter-house sports
2. Chess
3. Monopoly
4. Scrabble
5. Swimming
6. Dance
7. Talent Hunt
8. Designs - Arts and Crafts
9. Cooking
ETC

Under Affective
1. Merit Book Recognition
2. Drama
3. Poetry
4. Story Writing
ETC.

You can see, they are very many, it is due to inexperienced or poor administration that schools stick to a very few or in no-show on any of them.

Please ensure you start the engine and take off from the fast coming academic term. 

Lastly, don't wait till you are given an invitation for an outdoor competition, intra-school or in-house competitions have been found to be very healthy for schools. 




Starting Nursery and Primary School in Nigeria

***Starting Nursery and Primary school in Nigeria***

The number one priority of every parent is to send their children to school to acquire knowledge from infancy. School fees for these children take more than 20 percent of what average parents are earning, depending on the number of children they have. This has lead to the booming of private school business in Nigeria.

Nursery and primary private school business in Nigeria has become more profitable these days than ever before due to the sheer number of children. With such increase in the number of children born yearly — comes the need for more Nursery and Primary schools to cater for them. The need for even more will continue over the coming years.


In those days, a single government or missionary owned primary school in a community would be just enough to cater for the children of the entire community. Then, there was no need for private nursery and primary schools. Today, the story has changed — no single primary or nursery school will be able to take care of the entire kids in a community, especially in urban areas like Lagos and Abuja.

It has also become the general perception that the standard of education in privately owned schools are higher compared to that of the ill-equipped and badly maintained government owned schools.

Sending ones children to public schools is equally regarded as evidence of poverty. Therefore, every parent struggle to send their children to any available private school, doesn't matter if that one is even worse than the public school as long as it is called 'Private school'. These general trends has combine to make investment into nursery and primary school a worthwhile investment.

I've seen someone who only manage to feed few years ago become a millionaire through the small nursery and primary school he borrowed money to start.


Some of the cheapest nursery and primary schools in areas like Lagos charges nothing less than N7,000 as school fees, while good ones charge from N30,000 to as much as N500,000 school fees per term (I pay N175,000 for my 3years old daughter per term)just to learn A.B.C

If in your own private school business you charge N10,000 per term and you have 200 pupil, the amount you will be getting from school fees is 10,000 x 200 = 2,000,000 Naira per term and it wouldn't take you more than a million Naira to run such school every term.

Now you can see that investment in (Nursery and Primary) private school business is a worthwhile investment with decent profit returns? If you are ready to hit the ground and get started, here are the basic requirements.

Get A Land In A Good Area
Prices of landed property varies from place to place but you can get land in some developing areas of Lagos for about N600,000 to N2,000,000. Don't buy in isolated area where people are not living, no parent would want to patronize you in such location.

Due the inherent risk involved in child's movement, parent will prefer a school that is within their home, and for easy pick up of their children.


Minimum of one plot of 120 by 60 is what you need to be able to accommodate the school building and playground.

Note: Some people go for rented apartment — if you do not have enough money to buy land and build your own house, rent an apartment, use it to raise money to build later

Erect Your Nursery And Primary School Building
The cost of building depends on the size and quality of the building you intends to construct. Your Engineer will be able to put you through in this, seat down with him to discuss it properly.

Insist on good structure because, your marketing starts from there. The classrooms should be spacious, at least 3.5m square per child under the age of two, at least 2.5m square per child aged two or at least 2.3m square per child aged three to seven.

Most Nursery and Primary school class rooms used to small and jam-packed. Yours shouldn't be like that.Water is very essential and you need plenty of it in your school, get borehole that will supply you water at all time.

Equip Your Classrooms
Apart from the normal chairs and tables (which you can get Carpenters to do for you at a very reduced price) you also need to equip your classrooms with computer and other learning aids, parents will be happier to pay when they see that your classes are properly equipped.

You need plenty of toys and other gadgets that is used for children's education and Montessori. You need video and large screen TV in all the classrooms, not to play movies but for playing educational videos and sometimes, cartoon depending on the the class and the children's age.

Buy a school bus if you intend to offer pick and drop which almost compulsory for every school since most parents would demand for it. A nice Tokunbo bus goes for about N600,000. Get a decent bus that will speak well of your school, and avoid jam-packing children in a bus.

If one bus isn't enough buy two, parents are paying you extra for the service, give them the best they deserve. Besides, it's irritating seeing children packed up in a bus that is not fit for transporting animals let alone human being.

Employ Qualified Teachers
If you are just the proprietor of the nursery and primary school, you do not need any formal qualifications but if you are going to be the school manager you need the minimum of NCE and experience in educational administration

Your Teachers should have minimum of NCE and experience in childcare education or play-work. Teachers who are passionate about children are preferred.

Register Your Private School Business
Like every other businesses, you need to register your private school business as a sole proprietorship or depending on what you want if there are investors.

Approach the Corporate Affair commission of Nigeria to register your name, you may needed the service of a Lawyer in this regard.

Once you've put all these in place, the next thing is to advertise your private school business and get down to real business.




HABITS THAT SHOW IMPROPER UPBRINGING OF CHILDREN

Dear Parents,

HABITS THAT SHOW IMPROPER UPBRINGING OF CHILDREN

Please, carefully look at the list below and identify where you may want to make amends on yourself or on the young ones you are bringing up.

Children, if not properly groomed may never get to the top in life, even if both parents are at the top of their careers.
Manners take you to where your education can't irrespective of your status, wealth or your reach or influence:

1) Going to your child's school indecently dressed. (Think again).

2) Speaking rashly to your child's teacher.

3) Cursing, using foul language or swearing words in front of your children.

4) Using makeup on children.

5) Dressing your little children up indecently (they loose their sense of Princesshood).

6) Putting earrings on your son's ears.

7) Your child hold the cup or glassware by the brim and you don't correct.

8) Your children don't greet and you just feel they will come around one day because they have a mood swing. (You will be blamed for it).

9) Your children eat with their mouth opened and you feel they will grow up some day.

10) Your children bringing home something you did not buy for them and you say nothing. (that is the beginning of stealing).

11) The Children talk back at you and you conclude it's okay since you are a 21st century Mummy. (You will hate yourself if they do that outside and they are disciplined).

12) The Children interrupt when you are speaking with another adult and you think they are bold and clever. (Its really bad manners).

13) The Children exercising authority over the Nanny and domestic staff and you let them be. (that is bad parenting).

14) The Children saying things like "my driver is on his way..." I do not advocate that children should call your domestic staff Aunty or Brother, calling them by Name when they are not young people is not proper either. The use of Miss, Mr or Mrs will look good on them.

15) Your children don't say a 'thank you' when they have been helped or served something and you are cool with that. (Bad parenting).

16) When your Children cannot stand children's who are less privileged.

18) When the Children pick their noses with their hands.

19) When the Children don't wash their hands after visiting the washroom or after returning from school or outside visits.

20) When your Children take something from the fridge without taking permission. (Bad parenting).

21) When your Children don't knock on closed doors and wait for a response before opening the door.

22) When your Children don't collect from your hands items you brought in as you walk into your home.

23) When your Children request for a bribe to carry out their home chores or extra task. (That is disgraceful).

24) When your Children act like their Grandparents irritate them. (It's a Transferable Curse).

25) When your Children have not learnt to get up from the Chair for the Elderly or Visitors to sit.

26) When your Children tells lot of Lies. (You will both cry in the future).

27) When your Children ask "who is that?" at a knock on your door instead of "please, may I know who is there."

28) When your Children is always seated by your Visitors when being served Drinks or Food.

29) When your Children still point their fingers at other people, when talking to or speaking about them.

30) When your Children play and jump around when Prayers are going on. (These can apply to Children from Ages 4 and Above). 

Don't be a 21st Century Parents who can't correct their Children. Train your Children in the way of the Lord so that when they grow up they will not depart from such Godly Training or Upbringing. 

IT IS BETTER TO LET YOUR CHILDREN CRY AT AN EARLY AGE WHEN YOU CORRECT THEM, IF NOT YOU WILL BOTH CRY AT NIGHT WHEN THEY BRING DISGRACE TO THE FAMILY WITH BAD AND TERRIBLE BEHAVIOURS (PROVERBS 23:13).

Please circulate to all Parents and Grandparents that are on your Contact Lists to ensure Better Futures for All Children under their Watches. 

God Blesses You...!!! <3

Making use of photography as a medium of communication in the classroom

Photography can be used as a tool for teaching and evidencing learning in the classroom. It offers an easy, creative and exciting way to approach curriculums, and with the abundant availability of low-cost digital cameras in the market, the use of this tool has become more appealing and accessible. Also, the embedding of digital camera technology on mobile phones, tablets, computers and mp3 players has made the use of photographs as a teaching aid in the classroom easy and accessible.

It is important to note that before the commencement of the use of digital photography in the classroom as a resource tool for teaching, learning and assessment in any classroom setting, the consents of the learners, the learners' parents or guardians and the school management should be sought, or better still, the DATA protection law of the affected organisation should be respected by the teacher.

According to Moran and Tegano (2005), it is important to note that the reading of photographs by reviewers lead to the reading of meanings to what is being viewed. The reading of photographs is then made subjective and partial, which naturally leads to a range of interpretations. These interpretations are a positive part of photography as a means of teaching, learning and assessment in the classroom, because it is by sharing various meanings that new understandings are co-constructed. Furthermore, they suggest that the beauty of using photographs as a teaching aid is that it is a visual language and it shares important attributes with oral language, both in terms of communication and structure. It should be treated as a language but not as a truth or a definite fact, which in turn does not need any interpretation. As educators, there is the need to re-conceptualise photography as more than just a classroom record, but that it has the same subjective and interpretive potential like words, when it is read from the interpretive view, where it is imbued with meanings.

Teaching and learning

Photography as a teaching tool can be used in decision making by learners. For instance, while I was working with a group of adult learners with severe learning disabilities on a programme titled Independent living skills, the learners used photographs to make decisions on what they would like to cook during practical sessions on the programme. Furthermore, in order to decide what meal to make, the learners were shown different pictures of means of cooking like grill, oven, microwave and hob. Based on these pictures, the learners were able to identify and decide on the means of cooking which they would like to use in making their meal and this in turn was used to determine the menu options they could choose from.

On choosing the menu option, learners were made to choose different diets like fruits, vegetables, carbohydrates, protein, dairy products, as well as, dessert. Healthy food options were promoted amongst the learners and they were made to identify these options using photographs. Learners also made use of photographs to identify the different types of cooking utensils that they could make use of and these utensils were used during the cooking sessions.

The learners also made use of photographs in learning about the different sources where they could buy different items likefood, electronic gadgets, books and drinks. They matched pictures of the different products with some well-known local supermarkets. At times, they were made to match these pictures with dedicated sources of getting these products. For instance, getting vegetables from the green grocers and fish from the fish mongers.

The use of photography in these different ways gave the learners opportunities to prepare for their routine shopping experience, which was done in every other session, whenever there was going to be a cooking session. It served as a reminder to the learners on what they boughtwhile shopping for the session and what they cooked during the cooking session.

Formative assessment

Also, during the programme it was a common practice that in order to recap previous sessions and introduce a new lesson, pictures were used to assess the learners previous learning, and this was done on a regular basis. A simple approach that was used was to show the learners pictures of the present class activities and asking them prompting questions which would then generate responses that would be usedto form formative assessments of their learning.

Summative assessment

Finally, for this particular programme, the awarding body expected portfolios to be submitted for all the learners at the completion of the course work and there was the need to evidence the learning that happened during the course of the programme, hence, we made use of digital photography during the course of the programme in documenting the learners' participation during sessions,and this was very useful for evidence purpose. Furthermore, as a result of the inability of some of the learners to write, we made use of digital photography to evidence their work on the programme.

How to start your own school

This article focuses on simple steps to prepare a school start up plan. It is mainly on simple steps to consider when planning to start a school. The limitation is that it doesn't state the financial aspect of a school start up and does not explain in detail how to execute the plan.
School business proposal/plan is not readily available off-shelf for a new starter to adapt or use as a template. The fear of where the school should be located, how the structure should look like and what to do next is always a nightmare for any new starter. Financial stability and keeping the school standard are also challenges faced by a new school owner.

Business Plan:

1. Work on your preferred name (meaningful and catchy).

2. Determine the area or location.

a. The new school owner should answer the question why this "area/ location" in terms of target audience, quick and easy accessibility, serene and quiet neighbourhood.

3. What are the objectives and goals / solution the school is proposing or planning to achieve?

a. This will determine the power of operations, the delivery method, materials needed, man power required etc.

b. Vision and Mission statements.

4. Branding.

a. Logo, School Uniforms, School colour, Stationary, books…

5. Personality of the owner.

a. The positive and negative attitude of the owner is very paramount to the success of the school.

b. How ready or prepared is the owner to unlearn and relearn, then execute. The owner should prepare to have a mentor or a coach.

6. Curriculum to adopt. What curriculum or curricula do you intend to run, or combining different curricula with the Nigerian curriculum?

7. Finances, budget and projections.

a. Prepare your school bill. How much do you intend to charge and what are the services it will be covering.

b. Prepare the projection expenses that will cover one session at least: covering property rent, class preparation (painting & decorations), furniture, materials, staff salary, maintenance cost, school uniform cost, books cost, stationary…

8. Conduct your SWOT Analysis: Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats to the business

9. Set out to register with relevant government regulatory agencies

10. Prepare your operational structure of the school.

a. Establish the internal and external communication mechanisms for the school.

b. Staffing.

Conclusion: Having stated all the suggestions above. Quality execution of the plan determines the success of the school business and adherence to it will enhance the maintenance of the standard. However, having faith in God that you will succeed, then delayed gratification in school business does bring forth success on the long run.

DAILY REFLECTION

DAILY REFLECTION

MONDAY 2ND APRIL, 2018 (EASTER MONDAY)

THEME: BORN OF GOD
TEXT: 1 JOHN 3: 1-9
MEMORY VERSE: 1 JOHN 3:1 How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him." (NIV)

When a person is born into a family, his or her physical stature, character traits, etc. will normally reflect that of the family because of the gene of the family in him. In the midst of a crowd, you can identify a person as belonging to a particular family -he or she carries the gene and so resembles them in stature, words and deed.

In our today's text, the scripture says "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!" (1 John 3:1a NIV). We are children born of God, because God's seed remains in us. God's seed here (like the gene in man) produces the nature and character of God in the believer. We shall be like Jesus. The character of God which we will manifest in our daily life as believers are:(i) Righteousness (ii) Holiness (iii) Love (iv) Joy in the Holy Ghost, etc. The believers were first called Christians in Antioch when the people observed their way of life. They noted that the people had been with Jesus. They saw the risen Christ in Peter, John, James and concluded that Christ is living in them.

Those born of God are people whose lives reflect the glory, presence and power of God. They are not ashamed to be called Christians. They carry the image of God and showcase Christ everywhere, every time. They do not continue to live in sin and in disobedience to God. Instead, they live above sin and the world. Verse 8 of today's passage makes it clear that he who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. Whoever you are, clergy, or lay, Church leader or ordinary member, man or woman, if you are still living in secret sins, even when you proclaim Christ in the public, you belong to the devil and you are not yet born of God.

Can I ask you now? Who are you? Will you waste the precious love of God that was lavished for you? Will you waste your years on earth, doing God's work and later end up in hell? The choice is yours to make today.

HYMN: MHB 422 - BLESSED ASSURANCE, JESUS IS MINE

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I thank you for Your love lavished on me. Help me as Your child to live and overcome sin and the world. Amen.

If you put Bananas and Money in front of Monkeys, Monkeys will choose Bananas because monkeys do not know that *Money can buy a lot of Bananas

*Jack MA*, The Richest Man in China said:

_If you put Bananas and Money in front of Monkeys, Monkeys will choose Bananas because monkeys do not know that *Money can buy a lot of Bananas*._

IN REALITY,
if you offer JOB and BUSINESS to people, they would choose JOB because most people do not know that BUSINESS can bring more MONEY than Wages.

Similarly,
*Robert Kiyosaki*, author of the best selling book "RICH DAD, POOR DAD" and also a business partner of Donald Trump said:
_"One of the reasons poor are poor, is because they are NOT TRAINED TO RECOGNIZE ENTREPRENEURSHIP OPPORTUNITIES._

They spend too much time in school and what they have learnt in school, is to WORK FOR WAGES instead of MONEY WORKING FOR THEM.

*"Profit is better than Wages, for Wages can make you a living but Profits can bring you a Fortune."*

*THINK INVESTMENT* and stop fighting over increments of salaries, it still won't be enough
......
*Hear this from a Professor to freshmen and women during their orientation:* (Actually he is an Acting DVC Academic at a small/new university in Kenya)

"Academic excellence is overrated!
Being top of your class does not necessarily guarantee that you will be at the top of life.
You could graduate as the best student in Finance but it doesn't mean you will make more money than everybody else.
The best graduating Law student does not necessarily become the best lawyer.
The fact is, life requires more than the ability to understand a concept, memorise it and reproduce it in an exam.
School rewards people for their memory.
Life rewards people for their imagination.
School rewards caution, life rewards daring.
School hails those who live by the rules. Life exalts those who break the rules and set new ones.
So do I mean people shouldn't study hard in school? Oh, no, you should. But don't sacrifice every other thing on the altar of First Class.
Don't limit yourself to the classroom. Do something practical. Take a leadership position.
Start a business and fail. That's a better Entrepreneurship 101.
Join or start a club. Contest an election and lose. It will teach you something Political Science 101 will not teach you.
Attend a seminar.
Read books outside the scope of your course.
Go on missions and win a soul for eternal rewards...
Do something you believe in!
Think less of becoming an excellent student but think more of becoming an excellent person.
Don't make the classroom to be your world but Make the world your classroom.
Step forward, try politics, try farming, try business, try an extra thing . ."

*Don't feel shy to share with your children.*
