Parents Tasked on Quality Education, Good Moral Upbringing for their Children



By Olisemeka Sony

The proprietor of City Light Schools, Ifite-Awka, Anambra state, Reverend (Mrs.) Ifeoma Nwachineke has tasked parents and policy leaders to make provision of qualitative education and moral upbringing a top priority of their children’s formation. This, she said, is so as to secure a brighter future for the children and the country.

Nwachineke gave the charge during her remarks at the maiden graduation ceremony organised by the school over the weekend.

She noted that the spate of insurgency, especially in the northern part of the country, should be a wake-up call to awaken everybody to the importance of education in a progressive society. According to her, parents should not just be content with sending their children to school. They should ensure that they get to have quality education and be imbued with sound moral values that would enable them to actualise their full potentials and contribute to the peace and development of society.

“The greatest legacy every parent or
guardian could bequeath to their children is quality education and sound moral upbringing.”

She equally tasked government and private school owners to invest more resources on manpower and other things that will help in delivering quality teaching and learning.

According to her, the school, which was established in Awka in 2019/2020 session with just eight pupils, now has over 100 bright pupils within just two academic sessions. She attributed this to the quality of teaching and learning it provides.

“I’m happy to be blessed with dedicated staff members comprising God-fearing men and women who put all their strength in doing this work. I cannot do it alone.

“We have just started, but I know and trust God that we will go to higher places in the near future.

Rev. Nwachineke also admonished the pupils to play their roles for a better future, saying: “You are surely going higher from one graduation to another until you reach your God-given career and become a noble citizen of our country. Remember that a journey of a thousand years starts in a day. So, start yours today.
“Always pray for your parents and listen to them so that, one day, you will become that doctor, nurse, banker, accountant, lawyer, engineer, teacher, artist and so on that you dream to be. Remember, rough plays are not allowed. Be humble and obedient to your parents and teachers,” she counselled.

Earlier in his speech, the chairman of the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) of the school, Mr Francis Ekpone, thanked the school management for their commitment to quality education and moral upbringing and urged them not to relent.

Highlights of the graduation ceremony were the presentation of certificates and awards to graduating pupils as well as dance and speech presentations by the pupils.
