PAN Nigeria Limited says it will continue to support educational activities in the country as part of the plans to build a vibrant human capacity that can be absolved in the Nigerian auto industry.
The Managing Director of the company, Mr. Ibrahim Boyi, stated this in Lagos during the 2014 St. Saviour’s Fun Day.
Boyi, who was represented by the company’s Head of Corporate Communication, Mr. Musa Usman, stated that PAN Nigeria would always be available to assist institutions, whether government or private, in achieving their aims for the progress of the society.
The Parent Teachers Association Chairman, Mr. Tolu Osinibi, stated that the Fun Day was “about the celebration of Children and their total development as it should hopefully help them in building social skills that will stand them in good stead as they grow into adults we can be proud of.”
He said that the theme for this year’s event, ‘The total child’, was a reflection of the school’s focus for 2014, which was the overall development of the children.
Osinibi also stated that although, the Fun Day was an event for laughter and relaxation, the underlining objectives of the programme was to “raise money that will enable us to support charitable cause for the educational development of less privileged children in Lagos.
“It can be recalled that our proceeds of 2013 Fun Day was used in supporting Canal School, a nursery and primary School in Orile Iganmu, Lagos, which the school (St. Saviour’s School) adopted in 2012.”
The PTA chairman further said that from the money was used in funding the creation of a library and the purchase of other educational equipment for Canal School.
According to the chairman, the proceeds of Fun Day 2014 “will be used to support Massey Street Children’s Hospital, the foremost state-owned pediatric centre in Lagos.” The centre attends to an average of 250-300 children daily.
