Astymin to Reward Brilliant Pupils

17/07/2013

Two years ago 110 private primary schools in Lagos State enrolled their brilliant pupils for the Fidson Healthcare Plc’s Astymin Brilliance Hall (ABR) of Fame, in 2012 the number grew to 170 while the spread went up to include schools from Ogun, Oyo and Osun states.

Now, for the third season running and for the 2013 edition of the ABR, the interest has grown and 200 schools which cut across the states of Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Delta and Enugu would have their best pupils in the sixth grade taking part in the programme meant to reward only the best.

Since its inception in 2011, a noticeable trend in the annual event has been the fact that private schools’ owners have not only found it an avenue to showcase their talented children among other schools, it has also given a platform for participating pupils to get exposed to the dynamics of leadership in enlarged academic community.

The last two editions of reward for ABR saw pupils of some private schools in remote areas of Oyo, Osun and Ogun took a trip down to one of the prestigious and high brow private schools, Grange Children School, Ikeja, venue of the event to be mixed up with others in talent hunt competitions and it was indeed a celebration of some sort.

There was this euphoria among the pupils who came from the hinterland of Ajegunle, Lekki, Oyo, and Ogbomosho and so on, of being showcased as “the best from their community” alongside the best from other high brow schools in Ibadan and Lagos.

“During the Season 2, we launched the www.myastymin..com website to create leverage for all the brilliant pupils from across the states where they can interact and exchange programmes as well as continue the partnership we created among them through the use of ICT”, says General Manager Marketing, Ola Ijimakin, while unveiling the season 3 edition which holds in Lagos on July 27.

If the website has connected over 200 pupils to one another in two years, the ABR Season 3 plans to improve on innovation.

According to Ijimakin, “this year, the site will be re-launched with very significant upgrades. Every winner will now have an @myastymin.com email identity,” said Ijimakin.

The reward for brilliant pupils of each participating school involve the schools following set protocol and guidelines in identifying pupils who have outstanding performances through their grades and in the final sixth grade have shinning records that make them tops in the entire school.
