The British Council has honoured a Port Harcourt-based Showers International Schools for producing a student with the best Advanced Level results in the 2016 school certificate examination regime.
The student, Francis Anyanwu, who had already been invited for award by the British Council, scored 90 and above in Mathematics, Physics and Biology to emerge the best at the prestigious Cambridge examination.
“We hope that learners from your school will be encouraged in their future education and career by this recognition of their academic success.
We look forward to congratulating more learners from your school in the future.” Founder and Managing Director of the school, Mrs.
Emelia Akpan, enjoined the student to remain resolute in his academic pursuit, noting that the feat was made possible by hard work from teachers and students as well as active collaboration and cooperation of parents.
Mrs. Akpan, who is the Vice President, Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), frowned at increased cases of academic fraud, stressing that Nigeria is corrupt because the people and leaders believe in ‘short cut’ as a way of life.
She regretted that such life style has affected the educational standard of the country and other sectors of the economy.
She said cheating was not option in the school as such students would not go far in their academic activities.
“It is disheartening to hear that some parents help their children to cheat in examinations, what foundation are they laying? In our school, we train the children to imbibe the culture of righteousness in all they do and encourage parents to accept their ward’s performances as it is”.
