Not less than 14 primary schools participated in the Landmark College 2021 quiz competition held in the school hall on Thursday February 25, 2021, where pupils went home with massive prizes.
While giving the opening address, the school Principal, Mr Sanni J. A, said that the competition was organised as part of efforts to establish a strong partnership with the primary schools within Ikorodu.
He noted that the competition would also help to identify talented pupils.
In his words, "As a school marked for excellence, we believe that the uniqueness in every child could be identified through a competition like this."
The principal stated that it is an annual competition that goes with a Fun Day celebration. He said the Fun Day was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the state government directives on social distancing, we decided to organize only a quiz competition.
"It is one of the ways Landmark College contributes to the growth and development of schools in its environs," Mr Sanni said.
The contestants answered questions from English Studies, Mathematics and General Knowledge.
Schools that participated in the quiz competition included Richdeal School, Mighty Angel, Fulfilled Joy Montessori School, Whiteberly School, Skylink Children School, Geoann Private School, Early Figs School and Lindaves Montessori School.
Others were New Discovery School, BBJ Private School, Gladix School, Centcas Schools, Laroni Montessori International School and Clever Children School.
Only participants who answered their questions correctly in the first round of the quiz entered the second round which was the final stage.
At the end of the second round, Richdeal School which won the first prize was presented a refrigerator and the representative was awarded a Tecno tablet. Skylink Children School received the second prize — a C-Way water dispenser and a Tecno tablet for the representative. Lindaves Montessori School also received a C-Way water dispenser and a Tecno tablet for the representive.
Presenting the awards to the winners, the school Vice Principal, Dr Tunji Abiola, commended all participating schools and their representatives.
He said, "It is evident that all the schools present here this afternoon have what it takes to be referred to as schools.
"All the participants have done wonderfully well. I will only urge you all to maintain the excellent performance."
Dr Abiola also commended the teachers who prepared the pupils for the quiz competition.
For this year's edition of the competition, the highlight was the musical presentation by Landmark College band headed by the Music teacher, Mr Aluko.
The competition was coordinated by the H.O.D Humanities, Mr Timothy Adegunle, and the H.O.D Maths/ICT, Mr Michael Ochiedu.
