TASUED VC – In his desire to make the study of mathematics more friendly and practical to students, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu has promised to, personally, build a modern Mathematics Laboratory for students of Tai Solarin University of Education Secondary School (TASUESS), which is part of the activities marking his one year in office.
The Vice-Chancellor made this pledge during an interactive session with staff and students of the school which kickstarted the activities lined up to commemorate his one year in office as the fourth and first indigenous Vice-Chancellor of the premier University of Education in Nigeria.
He noted that as a Professor of mathematics, this gesture became imperative because of his desire to change the misconceptions of students that the subject is difficult to pass and to also make the study and learning of mathematics more friendly and affable to students of TASUESS.
Apart from this gesture, the Vice Chancellor also promised that the University Management will deliver a new dimension in modern day education through the proposed Smart Classroom, which is a technology-driven classroom.
In addition to this, TASUESS, as a subsidiary of the University, was also promised an uninterrupted ICT service that will be accessible to both staff and students. TASUED VC
The Vice-Chancellor further disclosed that the reason why he chose TASUESS as his first port of call during this celebration was borne out of the importance the University Management placed on the school “as one of the foundation members that established the school, I also feel proud seeing the seedlings planted years back, now enjoying tremendous growth. This makes me happy always”, he added. TASUED VC
Prof. Arigbabu, however, commended the staff of the school for their dedication and commitment towards the continued brilliant performance of the students, with an assurance that the University Management will leave no stone unturned in giving them excellent welfare package within the limited resources available to the school.
In her remarks at the interactive session, the Principal of the school, Mrs. Olaniyan commended the Vice Chancellor for his demonstrable support to the school since inception while also highlighting the numerous academic achievements the school has recorded in recent times.
The latest of such achievement was the installation of a-5KVA solar power inverter constructed by the Physics teacher of the school, in collaboration with some of his students.
The highpoint of the event was the interactive session by the staff and students of TASUED Secondary School with the Management team of the University. TASUED VC
