Sports aid learning – School



The Bridge International Academies has said sports aid effective learning.

A statement by Bridge International Academies’ Managing Director, Foyinsola Akinjayeju, explained that sports activities would help students imbibe good qualities including punctuality, alertness and fitness.

It said during the Inter-Academy Sports Competition in Lagos scheduled to take place April 6 for the Ikorodu, Lekki/Epe and Ojo Badagry regions, while Alimosho regions 1 and 2 would take place April 12, the pupils would demonstrate their prowess in marching to beat, sack-race, short and long races and other sports.

Akinjayeju noted, “We believe it is important for children to have a holistic education and that education is best when it combines the pursuit of academic excellence with the development of character. This is why we are intentional about our co-curricular activities, and a good reason our pupils excel inside and outside the classroom. This year’s Inter-Academy Sports Competition at Bridge International Academies is another opportunity to reward pupils that have developed their competencies in sports and demonstrated sportsmanship.”

The Director of Schools, Omotola Francis-Akinlolu, added, “As part of our preparation for the event, we have made provisions for health, safety, security, and a conducive environment for parents and children across the different regions the Inter-Academy Sports Competition will take place. A lot of work has gone into ensuring that our pupils and their parents have a rewarding time during the Inter-Academy sports competition. We are also in talks with brands who intend to sponsor and provide pupils with lots of goodies.”
