“All of these spaces are powered by solar panels, which means guaranteed power supply to enable teaching and learning under the most conducive conditions,” Sanwo-Olu stated.
He added, “All the classrooms are equipped with interactive touch-screens, and all the students have been given electronic tablets to aid both in-class and virtual learning.
“The school has also been provided with a basketball court, and a five aside football pitch to encourage their extra-curricular activities.
“So far, our administration has constructed more than 800 new classroom blocks in the public school system of Lagos State, while also completing the rehabilitation of about 200 public primary and secondary schools, with several others ongoing.
“Our goal is to build schools of the future, public schools that are driven by cutting-edge technology and that can compete favorably with the best schools anywhere in the world.”
