Olashore  Redefining Nigerian Sports to International Standard


Olashore international school is set to build an international standard set of student as far as sports is concerned. This was stated at the school’s inter house sports held at the school recently in Illoko – Ijesha, Osun State.

According to the school’s Head of Extra – curricular activities, Mr. Felix Adeboboye, sports help train children for the future. His words: “Generally, inter house sports helps to keep students fit, engenders healthy rivalry and trains them for the future. We are committed to raising sports youngsters with the international standards set by the school in sports. Sports have helped Nigeria because they have won laurels across the world. It is a segment that has pictured Nigerians in the committee of Nations. We have a structured programme for our sports development such that between5pm and 6pm on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, the students come out to train and also at weekends.

“Aside from in- house training, we also hire someone from outside to train them. They usually embark on various field and track events in order to get well rooted in them. I encourage students to build themselves on sports because in this present day, sports is more like a money spinning sector and we need to ensure students are kept on their toes”.

Similarly, the principal Mr. Derek Smith stated that as part of school’s eagerness to build 21st century leaders, children were trained to be skilled.

“We want to ensure our students are trained and well skilled in sports so they can participate in competitions. As it is, we have one of our students participating in the UK. Some of our present students might grow to become even better competitors. Above all, learning to live a healthy lifestyle is key,” he said.

Olashore school inter house sports ended in grand style, with Red House emerging the winner, Blue House the first runner up and Green House the second runner up, while leaving Yellow House behind.
