The Library Before Revonavtion
The Library After Renovation
Location: ATUNRASE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL, 10, Owodele Street, Off Ishaga (LUTH) Road, Surulere, Lagos.
Objective: Provide school students access to basic educational resources with essential books and a good learning environment to stimulate them towards scholastic excellence.
Project Report: The school library was in a dilapidated state. The dedicated space had been abandoned due to lack of relevant books, stationeries, and the dilapidated state of the furniture.
The Principal of the School, Mr. Yusuf confirmed that the biggest challenge to good success of the students was access to relevant books for the student. The Government is presently unable to meet this need and the students also cannot afford to acquire one due to their economic status. The library serves a school population of 571 students.
The refurbishment project was implemented in partnership with the old students of the school, and Chevron Nigeria Limited EMPLOYEE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM.
The renovation was delivered in three focus areas;
- Books – Provided for 16 subjects across SS1 to SS3 with a priority focus on Mathematics & English Textbooks.
- Facility Uplift – Durable Tables, Chairs, Shelves & Drawers (Seat up to 30 students). The space was also repainted and rearranged.
- Digitalization – New Laptops systems were provided with teaching, reading, and learning materials.
As part of our commitment to the SDG Goal of Quality Education for all, Whitefield Foundation in collaboration with the old student’s association and school authorities organized extra tutorial classes for final year students in selected key subjects as well as career counseling sessions for the students.
