VC- Today, we’re on the chat with Mrs Adewuyi @RiversideEdu. How about a brief introduction ma’am?
Good morning, my name is Oladunni Adewuyi, I am the head of Riverside Montessori School. I am a certified Montessorian
VC- @RiversideEdu seems to be a pretty new institution. How old is the institution? And how long have you been in the Educational sector?
Riverside Montessori School is 7 years old. I have been in Education since 2003. I started my career as an Accountant. I am a Fellow of ICAN
VC- Interesting! What would you say regarding the current government’s stance on education?
Government should allocate more funds to education. More schools, basic learning infrastructure, 21st century facilities, training and better remuneration. We also need to ensure that qualified individuals are in strategic positions to ensure policy formulation is apt. Government should also continue to tackle corruption and laws need to be enacted to make it an offense to keep children out of school. Government officials should also be dissuaded from sending their children to school abroad.
@RiversideEdu that one teacher that couldn’t read properly in Edo state. We should just weed out all those guys first #VConnectSMEChat
VC- @seyhleb @RiversideEdu What do you think regarding this suggestion? #VConnectSMEChat
Of course! A person who cannot read should not even be in the Administrative section of a school.
VC- Lagos State plans to teach 1 million students to code. Will @RiversideEdu participate in this exercise?
Definitely! We have a culture of continuous improvement. We always key into opportunities that will better our pupils’ learning experiences
VC- How has it been staying afloat during this economic situation. Parents are probably late on paying fees…
The economic recession is affecting everyone but we do not compromise standards. Nigerian parents are passionate about education….
We are being humane by offering opportunity to pay in installments. Standard discounts also apply for siblings on tuition and bus fare.
