Celebrating our heritage

The International Mother’s Language Day is celebrated worldwide annually on every February 21 . It’s a day set aside by the United Nations to celebrate ethnicity amongst amongst Children.

Dolly Children Foundation (DCF) celebrated the event with three schools at Obafemi Owode Local Government Primary School (OOLG), Makogi, Ogun State, Nigeria. This event was initially meant only for our reading club but was converted to a whole school affair. This is the SECOND TIME in 63 years that 2 schools would visit this host primary school.

Obafemi Owode Local Government  Primary School (OOLG), Magboro (Ogun State), Obafemi Owode Local Government Primary School (OOLG), Makogi (Ogun State) and PTEM Schools, Oke – Afa, Magboro, (Ogun State) celebrated the event with variety of cultural presentations
The aim of this event was to promote peace and unity amongst pupils and to emphasize that no ethnic group is better than another.

Pupils were encouraged to appreciate the cultural diversity in Nigeria. Parents came with different native foods to grace the occasion.

The pupils showcased variety of cultural presentations – poem recitations, dance drama, songs in Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba, (Atologwu & Bata dance inclusive).

The feedback received after this event has been incredible and overwhelming.

We are happy to break the record for the school the second time
