Proprietress wants more investment in education sector 

An educationalist and director, British Spring College (BSC), Awka, Anambra state, Lady Uju Dike, Tuesday, urged collaboration among stakeholders towards repositioning the education sector through promoting excellence and healthy competitions among students.

Dike stated this at Awka, Anambra state capital while presenting scholarships and other prizes to the winners of 7th edition of her (Lady Uju Dike Scholarship Scheme) Mathematics competition organised for Primary 5 and 6 students across schools in the country.

She said with quiz, debates and other healthy competitions and investments, stars would be discovered, nurtured, inspired and encouraged to strive for excellence which would in turn impact positively on the society across all sectors.

She urged students never to be distressed, depressed or suppressed even when they lose out in any competition at any level of their education because according to her, the future holds bright for them in diverse ways.

“All the students who participated in the quiz competitions here are the best and remain the best. A child that is good is still good. The students performed above expectations. But the winners are probably those who were more careful than others. Our interests are on the stars because there are those who are gifted no matter what,” she stated.

Blueprint reports that Uju Dike’s scholarships scheme at the event, aside other gifts and offers presented to successful students, awarded automatic scholarships to two students to study from class one to 6 at the British Spring College, a co-educational full-boarding international secondary school approved by the British Council and the Federal /State Ministry of Education.
