Lagos-Best graduating pupils from over 200 private and public schools across the country  were  recognised and rewarded with certificates of excellence and valuable prizes at this year’s Astymin Brilliance Reward(ABR).
The annual programme which is the flagship of Fidson Healthcare Plc children academic reward programme   held   weekend, at the Grange School, GRA, Ikeja, Lagos.
The programme, which began in 2010, is aimed at developing the mental and academic performance, while rewarding hard work and academic excellence amongst primary school pupils, through special acknowledgment and provision of educational materials.
This year’s programme attracted not only best graduating pupils from over 200 private, as well as parents, teachers and stakeholders in the educational system.
According to the General Manager, Fidson Healthcare Plc., Mr. Ola Ijimakin, this year’s edition is an evidence of Fidson’s unrelenting commitment to supporting the kids in all their academic endeavours, through its Astymin brand, in line with the corp academic excellence has been traded orate brand promise of valuing lives.
“Like we have always emphasised, the ABR is our attempt to bring back the glory days of our education by throwing our weight behind the children’s drive for academic excellence. This is another season of delight for the kids who have worked so hard and perform exceptionally in their academics; but for us as a brand, it is another day of celebrating excellence,” he said.
Expressing concern over the dwindling reading culture among teenagers and youths in the country, untamed passion for fast money, fame, Ijimakin explained that academic excellence has been traded for social or political affluence.
According to him, Astymin Brilliance Reward is one of the ways the company is partnering with government and other well-meaning stakeholders to develop the country’s educational system.
