ANAMBRA WINS AGAIN
By Ikenna Aniagboso
Two teachers from Anambra State have won the 2018 PRESIDENT’S TEACHERS AND SCHOOLS EXCELLENCE AWARD (PT&SEA).
The teachers are Mrs.Grace Amalachukwu Ezenwa and Mrs. Vera Uju Ikegwuani of Awada Primary School IV, Awada, Obosi in Idemili North LGA and Anglican Girl’s Grammar School, Onitsha, Onitsha LGA respectively
While Mrs. Ezenwa emerged OVERALL WINNER in the Best School Administrator category PT&SEA, Mrs Ikegwuani took 4th position in the same category.
They won this award after the Federal Ministry of Education conducted a visit/verification exercise all over the federation, to select teachers and schools with stellar qualities befitting of the award.
The award will be conferred on them on Friday, 5th October at the 2018 World Teacher’s Day Celebration at Eagle’s Square, Abuja.
Another profound testimonial to the effort the Anambra state government had committed to the development of education and Gov Willie Obiano’s passion and commitment to the welfare of both teachers and students in the state.
Recall that the Governor donated over N300m to Mission schools in Anambra State and reiterated his commitment to ensuring free and quality education in all government schools in Anambra state.
He had also motivated teachers by prompt payment of salaries and added incentives to those teaching in hard to access areas of the state amongst other encouragements.
This is the most recent feat achieved by the state since the unflagging commitment of the government in driving development in the education sector. Other outstanding accomplishments by the state include the Golden girls who won the technovation challenge, beating students from over a hundred countries of the world to write their name in gold at Silicon Valley, USA.
Anambra has continued to build on existing achievements to improve in every sector through dedication, commitment, transparency and concerted efforts to remain truly the light of the nation.
The efforts have yielded yet again to deliver today a set of golden teachers.
