A female teacher from Community Model Primary School, Ojoto, Anambra State, Mrs. Chizoba Ibe has received an award for emerging the best HIV/AIDS trainer.
The award was presented to her by Commissioner for Basic Education, Prof. Kate Omenugha, on June 11, in her office at the Jerome Udoji Secretariat, Awka.
She said the recipient was found to be the best master trainer among 30 participants that took part from the South East.
Prof. Omenugha noted that the HIV/AIDS training programme competition was organised by Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and National Teacher’s Institute (NTI) from April 16 to April 20, 2018 in Enugu.
Commissioner Omenugha pointed out that the 30 teachers, who participated in the exercise were all mandated to re-train 15 more teachers in their various communities.
The Commissioner added that Mrs Ibe carried out her step-down training at St. Barnabas Primary School, Ojoto by training 30 head teachers and other teachers from some schools in the state.
She congratulated the award recipient for being a good ambassador, who made the state proud.
Prof. Omenugha, then, urged her to intensify her hard work to remain the best among her contemporaries.
In her response, Mrs. Ibe thanked SDGs/NTI for organising the programme that was a platform for her to showcase her talent.
She also hailed the commissioner for the award while promising to always do her best to make Anambra state proud.
As part of the event there was presentation of a plaque, a pressing iron and a cheque for N10, 000 to the award winner by Prof. Omenugha.
