Earlier yesterday, Unique Secondary School Makurdi students exhibited their creative art prowess.
With paper and wool, they made various art works to the admiration of teachers and parents. It’s a yearly event.
The Proprietress of the school, Mrs. Juliana Atume said the aim of the exhibition is to showcase what the school does.
“We teach the children Fine Art or Creative Arts. They are taught architectural designs; how to use paper to make a house, to make pillars of structures and so on. We also teach them tailoring. They do tie and die. They also do their dresses. We help them to do Calabash decoration, in different colours.
“They can use these things to do decoration in the parlour, in the room, in hotels and in any place of interest. We teach them to make paper bags so that when they graduate, before they get a job; even a part time job, they can make the bags and sale. They also make slippers using paper. They can make shoes. And we teach them how to make jeweries. There are so many of them in making jeweries,” she explained.
In these days that there are no jobs, creative skills are necessary to make a livelihood. And so, creative skills are sure bet for a full time or part time job to earn some income.
“They also make cake; we have cakes. They make soaps. All these things are aimed at helping them to earn income in future,” Mrs. Juliana said.
There are many more benefits of educating your child or ward at Unique Schools, one of the leading single proprietor schools in Benue State, north central Nigeria.
The school is located at New GRA Makurdi and is primarily concerned with building a community of brilliant and focused students, thereby laying a solid foundation for the challenges and responsibilities ahead.
