TO succeed in life, graduands of Mind Builders High School, Ikeja, have been told to be persistent.

They heard from no other than the Commissioner of Police, Police Medical Services, Ikoyi, Dr Efunsola Sowewimo, to incorporate the three Ps (Pray, Plan and Perform) into their daily activities as the work towards their goals.

In her keynote speech titled: “Persistence, a vital key to Success”, she advised the 22 graduands never to give up, sharing examples of great men who won because of persistence.

“You may have to tweak your plans. Thomas Edison tried 2,000 times to create the light bulb. If he had given up we won’t have light today.

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talents. Genius will not take the place of persistence,” she said.

The school’s Education Director, Mrs Bolajoko Falore, also shared her three Ps – Patience, Persistence and Perspiration.

She told the graduands they were responsible for their success and otherwise.

“Dream big; patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success..

“Finally, remember that obstacles cannot stop you; problems cannot derail you; people cannot stop you. The only one who can stop you is yourself,” she said.

As good ambassadors of the school, she charged them not to forget the school’s pillars of character; be kind and good to people; be guided by God’s words, and think big.

Forty-four awards were presented to the graduating class, while pupils in the other levels shared 23 awards. Awards were also presented to outstanding parents and special guests, including Mrs Yinka Ogunde, CEO, Edumark Consult Ltd.

One of the graduands, who won prizes for distinguishing herself in sports, Zainab Yunusa, said her sojourn in Mind Builders exposed her to a variety of activities.

“We were exposed to so many things. We had so many outings. The school taught me to be independent and not rely on others. Mind Builders taught me to speak up for myself,” she said.

The event was spiced with choreography, duet, ball joggling/hoopla as presentations by the school choir and the orchestra.
