@Regranned from @aimeeslibrary - Cont'd... So guys like @abiolaohio were the in thing back then. Smart and intelligent in every angle. They KNEW all things, literarily... Book, competitions, dance, games, every. They had opportunities to learn new things. Everything didn't come on a platter, but they dug deep and discovered what they needed for life outside of the four walls. I wanted to be like these guys.
I discovered it was not all about knowing book either. It was about knowing the tiny, little, seemingly irrelevant things, presentation, packaging, skill, the will to be better, to have solutions to problems. The need to read more and vastly at that. It was about team work, making sure that we stayed winning - together.
Whenever my friend @abiolaohio would come visiting after he left school, he would engage me, drill me and sometimes I'd hear stuff like, "Afebuame, you're getting dull". That alone would push me to never relax. My result sheets, (wherever they are) weren't ALWAYS in flying colors, but the extra things I learnt in that environment instilled in me the 'spirit of excellence'. A spirit I need my kids to see, embrace and evolve into being. Excellent.
There really is no excuse to be dull in this time and age. And guess what? The opportunities are all the more massive. Learning keeps improving. And I hope to be able to teach my kids the extra... Aimee's is not a nursery and primary school. Our club activities are there to improve learning and thinking outside the norm. It's not a 'butty' gathering. It's a place where we argue, research, rub minds, learn from each other (kid-tutor kinda relationship)
