Today we remember the ingenuity manifested by Lagos schools and the heroism shown by teachers across the nation during the peak of lockdown, here in Nigeria, and the rest of the world.
So many events have occurred this year. It is quite easy to get drawn to it all and be drowned in the inequalities, gaps and uncertainty that the pandemic has now exposed in many walks of life.
But that is not truly the case. The pandemic has also exposed opportunities for new learning and innovation, and education is at the forefront of the essential transformation.
In this update, we share the story of Scholars’ Crest International School, Omole Phase II, Lagos State.
SCIS stands for Scholars’ Crest International School. SCIS was found by Mrs Olubunmi Runsewe in 1985 and it is one of the future-proofed contemporary nursery and primary schools in Lagos State with a modern ICT room and supporting infrastructures.
As we often say here at Digital Nation, Scholar’s Crest International School is simply the best school in Lagos State that you have never heard of.
Scholars’ Crest International School is the first school in Nigeria to experience our Digital Champion Programme. In 2021, SCIS joined other institutions in Lagos State, such as Hubert Ogunde Memorial School and Broadway Junior School, to execute Safer Internet Day thereby contributing to a new Guinness World Record. The school has also been awarded an International School Award by British Council, through the Council’s Connecting Classrooms programme.
