Africa Code Week

Over the next 25 years, Africa’s working-age population will double to one billion, exceeding that of China and India. In the meantime, the digital skills gap is widening: while coding has the power to put millions of young Africans on the path to successful careers and empower them to build sustainable growth, companies in Africa are currently struggling to hire enough qualified IT talent. So the question is not whether a full life cycle of skills support for young people in Africa needs to be created, but when. Africa Code Week says: NOW.

Teaching the children about their fathers

How else can you teach a child about fathers in a classroom filled with children, if not bringing the fathers to the classroom.

talking to one of the Nursery 2 pupils today, this is what he had to say.

Begin transcript…….

A. I learnt about my dad today.

Q. What did you learn about your father today?

A. I found out my daddy likes eating Semo and watching football but cannot play because he’s now older now.

Q. DId you learn anything else about you father?

A. Yes i learnt that my dad likes computers and uses computers to work.

We are not just about curricular activities

Take a sneak peak into out Taekwondo session, watch master Kemfon Samuel in his full Taekwondo uniform and other pupils learn the basic acts of self defense and respect.  We appeal to the parents to register their children for the Taekwondo sessions and make provisions for their uniforms to enable full participation.

Benefits of Taekwondo to Children

  1. Fostering Self-Discipline – One of the central tenets of all forms of the martial arts is an absolute focus on self-discipline. Today’s kids are so accustomed to receiving instant gratification that lessons in self-restraint and discipline aren’t always easy to come by. Kids with a martial arts background, however, are continually reminded of how essential self-discipline is.
  2. Boosting Socialization Skills – Kids who don’t always thrive in highly social environments may find it easier to get to know people and make new friends when they’re in a room filled with peers who share a common interest. The kids on the playground may not always have much common ground, but devotees to the martial arts are able to get to know one another through shared pursuits. Partner-driven forms like jiu jitsu can also foster camaraderie, as they force kids to pair off and build their skills together.
  3. Encouraging Physical Activity – Limiting screen time is a great idea when it comes to getting kids off the couch and encouraging them to be more active, but it only goes so far. Enrolling an inactive child in such a physically demanding pastime not only discourages the sedentary lifestyle she’s used to, but also gives her an enjoyable activity that inspires her to keep moving.
  4. Learning to Set and Achieve Goals – Most forms of martial arts are based around an accomplishment system of colored belts that signify the wearer’s degree of skill. When your child strives toward each new belt, he’s learning valuable lessons about setting and reaching his goals.
  5. Increased Self-Esteem – Confidence comes with achievement, so your child’s self-esteem level will get a boost with every new move he masters and every belt he earns. Kids who struggle with a low sense of self-worth usually become more confident as time progresses while they’re enrolled in a martial arts class.
  6. Instilling a Sense of Respect – Learning any martial arts style will require your child to show her instructor unflinching respect. Today’s kid culture doesn’t always include respect for authority, adults or those in advanced positions. When she goes to her karate or tae kwon do class, though, your child will be learning lessons in respect along with new moves.
  7. Encouraging Non-Violent Conflict Resolution – Thinking that martial arts instruction promotes violent behavior is justified if your only experience with the activity comes from television or movies. In fact, many defensive styles teach kids peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution skills and emphasize the importance of avoiding a physical altercation.
  8. Improving Listening Skills – In order to master the skills she’s being taught and advance through the belt ranks, your child will have to exercise superior listening skills. Kids who aren’t always adept when it comes to paying attention to what they’re told can benefit from the verbal instruction and one-on-one work in her dojo.
  9. Developing Teamwork Skills – Whether he’s breaking boards to get a new belt or sparring in a practice setting to master a new maneuver, there are few things that your child does in his martial arts classes that will be done on his own. Working together to learn new things and accomplish goals is an important life lesson for kids to learn, and instruction in the martial arts can help your child learn that lesson.
  10. Improvement in Other Areas of Life – The benefits of martial arts training don’t end in the dojo. The boost in confidence, increased fitness level and new cooperation skills will also help your child navigate the academic and social aspects of school, affect his behavior at home and have an all-around good influence on him as he develops into an adult

The After-School clubs hit the ground running

Like expected, the FAPS after schools clubs are demonstrating signs of greatness. In the news today are the Digital Club powered by New Horizons Computer Learning Centers & The Music & Ballet Club by Schubert Music School.

The digital club began with elections for club officials and the following pupils will champion the affairs of the club with the guidance of the ICT Instructor.

  • Ojo Adeola (Grade 5) – Club President
  • Solagbade Sunmibare (Grade 4) – Club Subordinate Instructor
  • Odeniran Ireoluwa (Grade 4) Club Secretary

From the Music and Ballet group, the pupils were divided into 3 groups,

  • Music
  • Ballet
  • Salsa

Reports reaching us is that one of the pupils in the salsa group is simply a natural as she picked up the salsa basic steps within minutes. The pupil in question is no other than Ms Moyosoore Tunji-Akeju. After pondering a while on why her name rang a bell,  I realized that she was one of the pupils that participated in the FAPS Talent Hunt 2016 Maiden Edition. You only wonder what the future holds for such talented and intelligent products of First Age Private Schools

Stay tuned for more information……
