An update on the school...

So i have started the group on facebook and its called "Help student of Kosofe Junior College get chairs and desks" ....click on the link and then log into your facebook account.
Alot of people have promised to donate to this cause and i am very happy about that, i spoke to the principal yesterday to inform him about our plans and he was very grateful,but wanted to know whether i had any affiliation with PDP cause u know the party in govt is AC...lol..so if i did they wouldnt have accepted my donations..lol..anyways i told them i didnt.Someone from a foundation also contacted me and would like to visit the school and talk to the students.

I also had a talk with my carpenter and he gave me a quotation, okay he gave my mum a quotation but she doesnt quite remmeber all the details so i will have to speak with him again to be clear on all the prices.I would also talk to one other carpenter to compare prices.If yall can also find out from any carpenter that you use....how much it would cost to make a chair and desk that would seat four people....and also workmanship and cost of nails,gum and other things needed...and get back to me on emi_le_gan@yahoo.com



Here is just a picture of how the desks might look..








A friend and I have plans to take this to the next level and hope to start a organisation called PKIN stands for PROVIDING for KIDS IN NEED.

Project PKIN is under The Light of the World Outreach Ministries

This is project that targets providing for kids that are in need in Nigeria, not the kids on the streets but the ones in schools who want a better life and need a better atmosphere to learn.

This project targets run down schools and how we can be of help to them.

You can also join the group on facebook..PROJECK PKIN!


I will get back to you as soon as i have all the details needed.

Thank you all, you are really going to make a difference in the life of these kids.



I just found out the two arms of JSS2 i am teaching have a total number of three hundred and something students...just two arms oh..whoa! its the second week and the students are driving me mad, i mean did i talk this much when i was in secondary school was this how our teachers felt about us? I mean what are they talking about that every five minutes their mouths are moving...

Another thing that saddens me is that with alot of subjects their foundation is poor, i had to teach them how to write a formal letter for a whole week and some of them still dont know how to punctuate,their spelling is poor,when to use past tense and present tense even the other student teacher who teaches maths says they dont know their timestable...who born me well not to memorize my timestable before monday when i was in secondary...Mr christian will use his cane to design my back or ill pump tire and he'll put one ababio looking book on my laps...if it falls i am dead.....and i am confused i cant start teaching them all that now, i have a lesson note that i have to follow....and it just saddens me..i dont just want them to come to school just because they have to but because they want to learn...lol..like that wa swhy i used to go to school back then.Anyways to encourage them i both the two people out of the 161 students who did well withe their assignment mathsets and they were very happy to receive them....note: i am not bribing them o! Just tryna encourage them to do their best and who knows there might be a reward if u do well.

I am invigilating tommorow...lol..their mid-term tests start 2mrw..so ill be invigilating from 8:30 to 2:00...guess i shud go to bed now...takare yalll!! thots moi

Miss Definitely Maybe said...

I think you are doing remarkable job in trying to give these children some form of future, It would be so easy to just go in and teach your lessons and not worry about them
It takes great character to want to help where you are not obliged to
Good luck with the projects

from my understanding u teach english, right? what is the name of the textbooks your students make use of? i know since they do not have chairs and tables having a library is out of it.i would talk to my people lets see if we can do a book drive for these kids.

eniyan said...

1. I told u teachin will bring out the best in you.

"The worst dat we think happens to us is to bring out the best in us."

Now see dis project. Would u have conceived it if u had been posted to Queen's College?

2. Times table in secondary sch? My! This is worse than i thot o! We used to learn those tins in Pry 2 now! Even my 6-yr old nephew knows the table up to 12! Kai!

...You have a lot of work to do. Do it!

Now u know why they say a teacher's reward is in heaven...

ChiefO said...

all our 2cents put together would sure be one good deed dat would go a long way.

its funny how something as simple as donating desks and chairs for kids has to bring up talk about PDP and AC. i guess its cos nobody does anything for anyone without having some special favors in return.

Chari said...

eeyaa nice one laide! buh babe make we yarn o!

Buttercup said...

U r just impressin me more n more! I clicked on the link but some unrelated random stuff came out..i'll check from ur fb profile.

aloted said...

good stuff...pls keep us posted..

and i also agree that u were bribing the kids...that was a good form of encouragement.

Osondu Nnamdi Awaraka said...

You're doing great. I like it. I also love the way you remembered how it was to be in school and not want to go to school (i'm not supporting them), what i'm trying to say is that bringing your own side up, makes you sound like a non-hypocrite. Try your best with them, God will see your efforts and crown them with success.

seye said...
