The Principal, Chrisland High School, Victoria Garden City, Lagos, Johan Viljoen, has called for greater pupils’ participation in Commonwealth competition, saying it is an elixir for exposing them to loftier life goals.
The contest, he added, celebrated the values of the Commonwealth.
The school participated in a recent Commonwealth World’s Biggest Assembly Class organised by the British Broadcasting Corporation, the British Council and the Commonwealth Secretariat.
The event was part of the activities lined up to celebrate Commonwealth Day and the run up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Speaking about the event, Viljoen said it was a privilege for the school to be part of a global event of such significance.
The decision of the school to participate in the event, he added, was to educate pupils and their teachers on the understanding of global issues from a Nigerian perspective.
