In what appears to be the climax of academic activities, at least for the majority, the set 2015 students of the Peter Akinola Foundation Youth Centre, sat for their final Trade Test Examination yesterday, Tuesday 15th of September.
The day started with all the students assembling in the general hall to take written tests comprising of objectives and theory questions set by the Ministry of Labour and productivity. Questions were set for all the trades the students have learnt at the Centre.
At the end of the written test, the students assembled at their various classes in order to be assessed based on their practical knowledge and to showcase what they have been able to produce as their projects. The first port of call of the team from the Ministry, is the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning department where the students led by their instructor, Mr. Sorinola showcased a mini refrigerator they built from scratch. Everyone who saw this innovative product was amazed and it was a huge plus for the department and for the Centre as well.
The students of Brick and Blocklaying , Concreting and Tiling, led by Revd. (Engr) Tunji Oyeneye, showcased all the tiling projects they have embarked on at the Centre and the team from the Ministry commended them for the great job they have done. The students of Fashion Designing showcased their own project too with their instructor, Mrs. Temitope Olanre-Alade, in attendance. The students project was beddings consisting of pillow cases and bedsheet.
Other departments, Electrical and Aluminum Fabrication and ICT departments also showcased their projects for the team to assess. The electrical students built an Electrical Switchboard and the Aluminium students presented a fabricated notice board and a dust bin stand. The ICT students also showcased various projects they have designed on their computers.
The highlight of the day was the Catering Department students who prepared a 2 Course Meal, comprising Carrebian Curried Chicken and Coconut Rice with peas as the main dish and fruit salad with Ice Cream as the dessert, yummy! 🙂
The aroma that took over the kitchen, the practical room, while preparing was indescribable and no one that entered the kitchen then has a doubt that the meals were been prepared by professionals. On hand was their instructor Mrs Remi Gbesan and their assessor from the Ministry and everyone was wowed by the culinary skills of the students.
After all the cooking, tasters (including yours truly) were prepared a table to savour the delicacies and truly everyone confirmed they have been to the Carrebian after the sumptuous meal. I am sorry if your throat is watering now with all my descriptions 🙂
It was a huge sigh of relief for all and sundry at the end of the day and everyone gave glory to the Almighty for a wonderful academic session and the grace to see it all to the end!
