SS1 Science students from Doregos Private Academy; Davidson Oseremen and Alade Oluwaseun ages 12 and 13 respectively have emerged the youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) in Nigeria. Doregos Private Academy; is an educational institution that aspires to be the best embracing new innovations and developments in the world and educational enterprise in particular.
In the light of this the school was first to embrace ICT training for her students as introduced by New Horizons Systems Solutions Limited, the initiator and brain behind training of Information Technology courses in Nigerian Schools of Learning i.e. Primary to Tertiary Institutions.
The school started the ICT Partnership programme with New Horizons Systems Solutions Limited in 2005, making her the first school in Nigeria to integrate ICT training into her academic curriculum from JSS 1 to SSS 3.
It would be recalled that the proprietress, Mrs C.A. Doregos made a statement that “as a result of our ICT partnership with New Horizons Systems Solutions Limited, we stand a greater chance of retaining all the trophies and medals we have won in various ICT competitions in the past. Our students also have a professional touch to computer training.”
This decision has endeared the hearts of many parents to the school and records have it that for some parents who came late to enroll their children at the school it was a case of being turned back as most of the classes were already filled to capacity. This development can be attributed to the disciplined leadership and excellent management style of the management and staff of the school coupled with the partnership formed with New Horizons.
Since this partnership started, the school has won several awards both at the state and international level. In 2008, the school won the best ICT students award in Lagos State (Agu Agatha) and Davidson Oseremen assembled Personal Computer System at Sheraton Hotel & Towers in 2007.
The school came 1st in the Young Science Technology Association competition held in Ibadan and later represented Nigeria in Brazil for the International Science EXPO where Nigeria won 5 medals and 2 trophies. The school won 3 medals out of the 5. She was also first in the National Secondary Schools Intellectual capacity building competition, and Nigerian Science Fair.
New Horizons, the World leading IT Company and the First IT company to fully integrate professional ICT Certification courses into Nigerian universities and schools academic curricula is proud to be associated with these achievements, particularly the success of Alade Oluwaseun and Davidson Oseremen for becoming the youngest MCPs’ in Nigeria. The company implements World Class/ Standard ICT Curriculum using Certified IT Instructors with Original Courseware certified by IT Vendors for Training both primary and secondary schools.
