Teaching is the noblest profession that can shape the character and future of an individual. Yet, teachers seldom get the recognition, respect or appreciation they deserve in spite of the huge sacrifice they make in developing our children.
To mark World Teachers Day on October 5th, 2019, Bestman Games Initiatives hosted teachers from across Lagos State to a special learning event in recognition of and appreciation for their dedication, commitment, and sacrifice in developing the next generation.
At the event, the CEO of Bestman Games, Nimi Akinkugbe, shared some thoughts on “Teachers and Money Matters” which was an interactive session. Thereafter, Ailia Kadiri from AVON HMO gave an outstanding lecture on “Healthy living for the future”. Afterwards, free medical checkups were conducted for all participating teacher.
After the lecture session, there was an open monopoly tournament which had two rounds of play and two teachers emerged as winners.
