We spent the morning of Tuesday, 20th June with the students of Pacesetters Academy, Wuye. As usual for the series, they got to know a lot about the inner workings of the company.
The Junior secondary students were given a simple career talk on the importance of ICT in which ever careers they intend to pursue in the near future.
Their session got a little more educational when Faiz Bashir, CEO Flexisaf taught them a math tutorial on simple arithmetic tricks. It was interesting to watch young kids being active and participating in answering and finding solutions to math problems. Then, for being most active student and answering a quiz question, David Ogoja was presented a gift from the CEO.
For the SAF Talk-2-Me guidance and counseling session, it was interactive and educative as they discussed the importance of having an effective guidance and counseling system in schools. They had so much to tell us about the bad vices that students possess and the need to have someone to talk to when needed.
Then to our short essay contest where they were asked to write about how they can impact the lives of others with ICT in the future. Now this was such a good idea as we had a bit more insight into the working minds of the students. We got to know about how quite a number of them wanted to be in the medical field, a few ICT scientists, lawyers and marketers (hopefully they learned a thing or two from Mr. Goja, one of our sales and marketing team members that gave a short lesson). They all seemed to understand that ICT is important one way or another in any field and had many bright ideas on how to impact the lives of others.
David Ogoja again, won the essay contest, with Prince Uwe and Daminabo Sharon in 2nd and 3rd places respectively. The winner was presented with Google cardboard VR glasses.
The students included Natasha Ohai, winner of our past children’s day online giveaway.
We were truly impressed with all of the students for their willingness to participate in all the different sessions. The students were smart and active and we hope to have them as interns someday in the future.
