School Feeding: Enrol Your Wards, NOA Tells Parents

Parents need to ensure that their children are enrolled in schools to reduce the number of out-of-school children in Nigeria as the second phase of the National Home-Grown School Feeding Program takes off.

The National Orientation Agency, NOA, State Director, Mrs Adelayo Adefolalu gave the advice while monitoring the programme at Oda in Akure South Council Area of Ondo State.

Mrs Adefolalu pointed out that the second phase of the National Home-Grown School Feeding Programme would assist the parents while retaining their wards in schools.

The NOA Director added that the programme, which was hundred per cent free, would boost the health of the pupils and also empower economically those engaged in the supply and cooking of food.

In a remark, the Head Mistresses of St Williams RCM Primary School and St James Anglican Primary School in Oda town, Mrs Abímbólá Àìkú and Mrs Grace Oluwalade lauded the programme but asked that it should be extended to cover other classes.

Earlier at Olojoda Palace, the regent of Oda, Princess Dr Adeyinka Akosile called for the establishment of more primary Schools in the villages to address pupils trekking long distances from home to schools.

Over ninety thousand pupils in Ondo State benefitted from the first phase of the National Home Grown School Feeding Programme.
