Premiere Academy Marks International Day of the Girl Child with Anglican Girls Grammar School – AGGS

October 11th every year is earmarked as the International Day of the Girl Child. The Day of the Girl Child focuses on the need to address the challenges the Girl Child faces, and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights.

To commemorate this year’s International Day of the Girl Child, Premiere Academy Lugbe, Abuja visited Anglican Girls Grammar School Gudu, Abuja. The visitation was borne out of her core value of adequately preparing students for the future so that, they can be relevant in society.

This year’s International Day of the Girl Child is focused on the digital revolution and the commitment to address the gender digital dichotomy experienced by today’s generation of girls if we must achieve meaningful and sustainable change in the digital space.

In line with the theme of this year’s International Day of the Girl Child — Digital Generation; Our Generation,’ the visit enlightened the Girl Child about career opportunities in the digital space.

The visitation was programmed with a talk to address the gender digital dichotomy in access to devices, skills and most importantly, encourage the Girl-Child to pursue skills in the digital space for relevance in the 21st-century workplace.

More so, as the sensitization continues, the interest of the female students was stimulated to take seriously STEM subjects just as their male counterparts.

As the activities earmarked for the day came to a close, the female students had an eye-opener with regards to digital realities and the skills they need to excel and be significant in the digital age.

Premiere Academy has been providing a conducive atmosphere for the Girl Child to excel in digital technology for the past sixteen years, by running programmes such as coding, robotics, electronics, technical drafting and more recently 3D-printing technology.

Premiere Academy believes that the current wide gap in the digital divide between male and female gender can be substantially bridged by creating awareness to as many young girls as possible.

Premiere Academy appreciates the Management, Principal, staff, and students of Anglican Girls Grammar School for making the day a success.
