The Rotary Club of South Gbagada, District 9110 has commissioned an e-Library at Lanre Awolokun High School, Bariga, to boost digital learning among students and support basic education in Lagos State.
The club also planted trees at Gbagada High School, in an effort to control climate change for a better learning environment.
District Governor Omotunde Lawson while commissioning the projects said that an enabling environment and adequate facilities for learning were important for the growth of the education sector.
She expressed hope that the e-library would help students keep abreast of the use of technology like their counterparts in developed countries, adding that the planted trees would provide a conducive environment for learning.
The club president, Olanrewaju Akosile, during the tree planting exercise, urged Nigerians to embrace the sustainable agenda against global warming and its devastating effects on society.
He said that with the depletion of the ozone layer, there should be continuous reforestation to save the environment, especially in schools.
On the e-library project, Akosile noted that the club saw the need to boost learning at school through the deployment of technology, saying the move will improve students academically. He therefore instructed the schools to perpetuate the projects for the benefit of future students.
Principal of Lanre Awolokun High School, Onifade Bayo, who spoke on behalf of the beneficiaries, commended the club for donating the electronic library.
