The child has one intuitive aim: self development

Sports Relief Day

The 25th of may 2017 was a remarkable day in both Mummy’s Place primary school and Emplace College as the four sports houses in the school competed for different prizes that were up for grabs. The school management came up with a twist to the sport event for this year, “Sports for charity”.

The motherless baby’s home in Akure was the charity chosen for this year. The children happily went home in their numbers sourcing for donations (cash and material) from their parents, uncles and aunties. The turn out was far beyond what was envisaged as the children turned up with food items, clothing items, shoes, snacks, drinks, toiletries the list was endless. The idea of the sports relief program was to get the children to be socially aware and attentive to their environment and to those who are less privileged (not by choice), consequently contributing positively to their value system.

The children caught into the idea and gladly responded. These and more are some of the attributes we believe the future generation desperately need to possess.

They competed in various sporting activities ranging from basketball, football, volleyball, discuss, shot-put, 100 meters, 200 meters, 400 meters, 800 meters and the relay races as well. The winning houses for the various events won prizes like boxes of noodles, bags of rice, mini gas cooker, cooking oil, spaghetti, books, stationery and a whole lot of other items. The interesting part was them accepting the prizes and subsequently donating them on behalf of themselves and their respective houses to charity. The 2018 pilot edition was a huge success and the management decided to adopt this as a yearly practice.
