Organised to access students’ grammatical capacity, members of Ikorodu Peculiar Lions Club took their annual Literacy Project to Ayangburen Junior High School in Ikorodu.
Dated 1st of June 2023, the ‘Reading Action’ program was put together to test learners on how to read and write effectively, and to upgrade their mode of articulation in English Language and Literature.
Received by the school administration, ably led by its Principal, Mrs Fatokin Adetoun, the club was assembled with selected students of the school at the computer department, where the program took place.
Lion Aderenle Adedoyin, who took charge of the program, explained to the students that their level of composure, use of grammar and manner of presentation is key to their learning advantage.
According to her, “There are ways in which words are broken down into syllables, some words when stressed don’t interpret their identity”.
“As students, you must work on your vowels and also do not rush your pronunciation methods,” Lion Aderenle said.
Essay writing titled ‘My School’ was assigned to the student as classwork, to further test their writing ability for 5 minutes.
Subsequently, the students were given portions of their English Novels to read, which was also controlled by Lion Aderenle Adedoyin.
After the basic Reading Action (Literacy) tests, Lion Aderenle Adedoyin appreciated the efforts made by all participating students, advising them to ripen on their academic performances.
Furthermore, the Charter President of Ikorodu Peculiar Lions Club, Lion David Akinosho, on his part, told the students to understand that they’re solely responsible for their success or failure in life, implying that despite their respective backgrounds, they can emerge movers and shakers of society in the future.
He asserted that the pupils must make teachers their best friends, for them to learn more and prosper intellectually.
Mrs Fatokin Adetoun, Principal of Ayangburen Junior High School, at the end of the program, appreciated the club for their support to enhance the intellectual capacity of the students.
She also took part in presenting gift items to participating students afterwards.
Incoming President of Ikorodu Peculiar Lions Club, Lion Innocent Abuaja, Lion Sulaimon Quadri, Lion Adeyoju Rotimi, and Lion Toluwalase Omowunmi were in attendance.
