The Next One Year

We have much to achieve, to lay down a robust foundation for OYOMESI. Already, the journey has begun in earnest and much has been achieved since the initiative was launched in May 2017. We have identified the major milestones that we must attain in the next 12 months and we are actively focused on acquiring the resources to achieve this.

Winning Hearts and Minds

How can OYOMESI win the Heart and Minds of our teachers, pupils and their parents? By making learning fun, OYOMESI aims to reignite the passion for learning through;

(a) The launch of Digital Literacy/Microsoft Imagine Academy, which will be carried out by the end of October 2017.

(b) OYOMESI Job Experience (OJE) Scheme for Pupils.

(c) Inspiring healthy competition through the invention of academic games.
