Ajuwon High School Science laboratory has just been renovated, modernized, and equipped by Rotary Club of Omole Golden, one of the Rotary clubs under the umbrella of Rotary International, District 9110 which comprises all Rotary clubs in Lagos and Ogun states.
The club also constructed a water bore-hole facility for the school which was commissioned alongside the newly equipped laboratory, by the District Governor, Bola Oyebade on Friday, September 18. Present at the commissioning were other members of the club led by the Club President Agwu Hassan.
Speaking during the project commissioning, the School Priciple, Mrs Omolara Osewa stated, "Without mincing words, Rotary Club of Omole Golden has taken the centre stage of annals in the history of Ajuwon Senior High School with their annual tradition of one project per year, having adopted the school.
"Today, another feather is added to their cap with this year's project which is the revamping and equipping of the science laboratory being commissioned today", said the Principal.
Mrs Pearse Abosede from the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology who was also present at the commissioning thanked the club on behalf of the ministry saying, "I was here last year to commission a project by the club and am happy to be here again courtesy of Rotary Club of Omole Golden. The ministry appreciates your effort."
Speaking further, she said, "When I was told that the club will be commissioning a project here again today, I saw wow. Who would have thought that despite the current economic meltdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, some group of people could still use their personal resources to do this. We say thank you", she said while urging the school management staff to ensure that the laboratory is properly secure and put to good use.
District Governor Oyebade also, alongside the club president officially installed the new president of the Interact Club of Ajuwon High School, an S.S. 2 student named Balogun Hannah.
