At Meadow Hall, Zuriel Oduwole advocates for quality education
In her continuous drive to advocate for quality education; raising excellent, Godly and well-rounded children, Meadow Hall Education hosted Miss Zuriel Oduwole and her father, Mr. Ademola Oduwole, on Friday, April 27, 2017.
Meadow Hall welcomed this highly accomplished teenager, giving her the platform at the school assembly hall to inspire students as well as answer a few questions.
She spoke in depth about her filmmaking project, which was inspired by her desire to show Africa in a positive light. Her last documentary, called A promise in Africa, was focused on Nigeria.
The movie aired in cinemas in Nigeria, South Africa, England, Ghana and Japan. ‘Age is no obstacle’ she said when asked by a student how she was able to accomplish all this so early. She stressed the importance of finding what one loves doing, and then following through.
Her education project was next on the agenda. She spoke about the reason for meeting the different world leaders, which is to discuss policies to ensure their children not only go to school, but also have access to quality education. Her passion stemmed from a trip to Ghana, aged nine, when she saw a group of girls hawking on the street instead of being in school.
This is what Zuriel and Meadow Hall have in common. Just getting children to school is not enough; a holistic, well-rounded education is critical for children to reach their full potential. This commitment is shown not only in their delicate blend of the British and Nigerian Curricula, but also in the Meadow Hall Edutainment Centre they recently opened in Lekki, which ensures children’s innate talents are identified and developed.
