THE Bridge Nigeria has made effort to nurture the leadership skills in some of its pupils by appointing them to leadership positions in their schools.

Academics Manager, Ezinne Tochie-Asogwa, said Bridge Nigeria aimed at imparting academic excellence, developing leadership skills among pupils and preparing the young learners to become confident and empowered young adults as they progress in learning every day.

She said, “At Bridge, we make provision of duties to pupils, particularly within the school and classroom to build their leadership skills. With positions like class prefects, head boys or girls, ambassadors, line prefects, etc. available in the school, they develop leadership skills and can lead and guide others in the right direction while inculcating the traits of selflessness, diligence and conscientiousness.” Tochie-Asogwa said.

Some of the pupils also shared their leadership experiences.

11-year-old pupil, Chioma Godson in primary six, who served as an Ambassador in her class said her responsibilities included guiding pupils and showing new pupils around the school.

Another pupil in primary six, Funke Bhadmus, the class prefect with the responsibilities of putting things in order and helping the teacher, said she always ensure everything in the classroom were in good condition.

Funke said her role model was Mary Slessor because of the role she played in stopping the killing of twins in Nigeria and her love for defending innocent people.

She hopes to become a lawyer in future. “I want to be a lawyer because I want to defend innocent people like Mary Slessor did. Bridge is giving me the right foundation that will propel me to succeed in the future by teaching me morals and training me to be a good leader of tomorrow,” she said.

On her part, eight-year-old Chiziterem Okorafor, a primary four pupil, who is the class prefect said she loved Maths and English subjects because she enjoyed solving new problems and reading stories. Chiziterem added that she had the responsibility of ensuring that her classmates were well behaved when the teacher stepped out.
