A pupil of Bridge International Academy, Badagry, Master Emmanuel Sefirinmi Avoseh, 10, has received the Supreme-Bridge full scholarship award, which covers his secondary education, following his outstanding performance in both the supreme scholarship entrance examination and subsequent interview process.
The Supreme Education Foundation (SEF) scholarship scheme is designed to bridge educational inequalities resulting from geographic and socio-economic differences and give deserving students the opportunity to attend SEF schools which provide quality education in an exciting learning environment.
Avoseh, who currently is in primary six, sat for the supreme scholarship examination with other brilliant pupils across Lagos State before earning the coveted slot.
Speaking during the official award presentation ceremony held recently at the Bridge Nigeria’s Support Office, Lagos, the Principal, Supreme Education Foundation Schools, Mr. Iheanyichukwu Akwitti said the scholarship will cover his full boarding, tuition, books, uniforms and other resources during his secondary education at the school.
He urged Avoseh to come into the school with his mind open and ready to break all boundaries.
According to him, “the SEF school is not just committed to ensuring that students get the best quality education, but are also supported to excel in their academics, leadership and entrepreneur journey.
The principal commended Bridge for its impact on the lives of children and families living in underserved communities and opined that the Supreme-Bridge partnership will hopefully lead to more collaborations and opportunities for more pupils.
Emmanuel’s Mother, Mrs. Oluwakemi Avoseh said being a single parent, receiving this scholarship will greatly reduce the financial burden of training four children single-handedly.
“I greatly appreciate Supreme Education Foundation School for the generous financial support. I also thank Bridge for giving Emmanuel the opportunity to pursue both his educational and extracurricular dreams.”
She added that the quality education and support from his teachers has contributed to Emmanuel’s success story.
The Managing Director, Bridge Nigeria, Ms. Foyinsola Akinjayeju stated that Bridge believes that a child’s potential should not be limited by his socio-economic status, hence, the support for low income families with access to life changing education and scholarship opportunities.
“The scholarship would no doubt go a long way in the life of Emmanuel and his parents, and inspire other pupils who aim to achieve such a feat.”
