In a significant move to improve hygiene and the learning environment, Chrisland Schools Limited has donated a newly constructed block of toilets and hand wash areas to Ikota Primary School.

This initiative is part of the Lagos State Government’s ‘Save Our Schools’ campaign, which aims to enhance educational infrastructure.

During the commissioning ceremony, Mrs. Ibironke Adeyemi, Managing Director of Chrisland Schools, announced plans to renovate the school’s existing dilapidated toilets.

“We had come here before to give some talks and palliatives. We also asked the school what they needed and they told us they needed toilets. We also saw that there is an old toilet; we will renovate it to a very high standard and after that we will be taking on the projects one after the other,” she stated.

Previous Initiatives and Ongoing Efforts

Highlighting Chrisland’s commitment to community support, Mrs. Adeyemi recalled past initiatives where the school provided health and safeguarding talks and distributed palliatives to local communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. This support extended to communities in Idimu (Lagos) and Owo in Ondo State.

The chairman of Chrisland Schools’ Advisory Board, Barrister Ike Ofuokwu, emphasized the school’s dedication to ongoing support.

“We weren’t impressed when we came here to give palliatives and we realised that the school does not have a befitting toilet. We asked ourselves how do our children enjoy the best facilities while children here do not have good toilets? That answer was our motivating factor.”

High Chief Mrs. Winifred Awosika, Chairman and Founder of Chrisland Schools Limited, expressed gratitude to the board of trustees and the school management for their efforts in making the project a reality.

She also thanked the management of Ikota Primary School for allowing Chrisland to be of service.

Mrs. Okusaga Abimbola Oluwakemi, Head of Ikota Primary School, assured that the new facilities will be well-maintained and put to good use.
