Message From The Coordinator
I have immense pleasure in welcoming you to the website of the Lagos Eko Secondary Education Project, a partnership between the Lagos State Government and the World Bank to enhance learning outcomes of the public junior and senior secondary schools. The Lagos Eko Project complements efforts of the State Government towards improving the overall standard of education.
The website details information about the Lagos Eko Project’s work areas especially its programmes and activities in the schools, community and the Education Districts. It is user-friendly and easy to navigate as its process of development took cognizance of the varying needs of our numerous stakeholders.
At the Lagos Eko Project, we believe we are striving for excellence in our public schools and I am happy to say that the results of the standardized assessments conducted and analysed over the years have shown remarkable achievements in terms of learning gains. Besides academic achievement, schools are now committed to inculcating in all its students, strong ethical values of integrity, health and environmental awareness, leadership and respect.
It is noteworthy to mention that we are already seeing positive changes in attitudes and values attached to education by school managers, teachers and students especially in school attendance and motivation to achieve better results. These we will continue to reward on a yearly basis through the Governor’s Education Award.
The website is yours so own it and feel free to contribute your comments and suggestions towards its development. Have a pleasant experience!

JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS
SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS
Through the Lagos Eko Project, the Lagos State government is revitalizing secondary schools by providing extra funds of between N2 to N3.5million directly to each of the Junior and Senior Secondary Schools including the State Technical colleges.
The development of Lagos Eko Project is a further manifestation of the high level determination by the present admionistration of Lagos State to achieve excellence in governance in all its ramifications and more so in the education of our children
From time to time, Lagos Eko Project, require the help of consultants and professionals to directly impact to each of the Junior and Senior Secondary Schools including the State Technical Colleges.
Our WAEC and NECO result since the beginning of Lagos Eko Project has been very impressive. Last session we presented 145 students for WAEC and they all passed English with merits. We had 100% success in 11 subjects including English Language. In the NECO exams, we also had 100% in 17 subject including Mathematics, English Language and Biology.
In the past three years of Lagos Eko Project, we have seen school leaders transformed from near despondency in the first year (when they thought Government did not care about their welfare) to cautious optimism and curious interest in the second year and in the third year, to passionate and enthusiastic leaders and learners, full of appreciation of Government's intervention in the education sector.
As a principal it is my responsibility to focus on the most effective tools for increasing the use of shared leadership to improve learning and teaching. Coaching, mentoring and team building are all key when leading a group of teachers towards achieving goal. Since I attended the Leadership Practicum in the UK, cultivating teamwork has become an even more important part of our school culture.
During the course of Teacher Mentoring programme, I discovered many innovations that make learning interesting , we were made to realize for the first time perhaps for most of us that interactive way of teaching must be emphasized, students should be taken to be the core of our lesson not the teacher.
