As we continue to dominate in sports amongst the private primary schools in Abuja, its no longer news that we enter the 4 by 100 meters relay Inter-School competition and run away with first position on both the male and the female categories. What was making headlines on Saturday 4th of March is that a child in Grade 2 (Primary 2) Nuhu Nabila from First Age Private Schools Kubwa, participated in the 100 Meters inter-school category with 7 schools in attendance, and placed second, outran only by the female games prefect of First Age Private Schools in the person of Adenitis-Salman Farida.
Long story short, First Age Private Schools on the same Saturday was invited to participate in three different school inter-house competitions. We had to share our contingents into three groups to be able to honour all invitations. Here’s a summary of the events.

When i see schools teaching home economics in the classroom, i wonder why they expect those children to grow up knowing how to cook. can someone please explain what half a measure of pepper is in the kitchen or 1 tea spoon of flour or even a pinch of salt. lol.
In FAPS we don’t just explain on the whiteboard, we let the pupils try their hands on the menu. Today’s menu is …….. Moi-Moi
