LASUBEB Holds 2021 Games Festival, Restates Commitment To Promoting Extra-Curricular Activities

Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB), recently concluded its three-day games festival for pupils in Public Primary Schools with an assurance that co-curricular activities would not be neglected across government schools in the State.

The Executive Chairman of LASUBEB, Mr. Wahab Alawiye-King, speaking at the opening ceremony of the final football match held at the Agege Stadium, said the annual competition, which commenced on Tuesday 30th March, 2021, was organised to showcase the skills of the school pupils and inculcate in them the spirit of sportsmanship.



He maintained that Basic Education in Lagos State is not only focused on the cognitive and affective aspect of learning but also to develop the psychomotor domain of pupils, stressing that the government believes that no aspect of learning should be neglected considering the diverse inherent gifts, skills and abilities of school pupils.

The highlight of the competition was the presentation of medals to the winners by the Chairman of the Board alongside the Special Guest of the day, Chioma Ajunwa, the first black African woman to win an Olympic gold medal in a field event, and other board members of LASUBEB.
