Pupils of Infantino Montessori School, Lekki, Lagos has held the second edition of its music and art festival, tagged “Things fall apart II”.

It was an evening of thrilling performances at the Pennisula Hotel, Lekki, graced by pupils, parents and guests.

According to the theme, series of short dramas and dance, which narrated the civilisation of the early days, were presented to entertain the audience.

School Director, Chinwe Anyingbo, in an interview, said the programme was designed to help the pupils discover their talents and expose them to their cultural heritage.

“We started this last year; we found out that children really wanted to express themselves and often times they do not have a way of doing that. We are just in a society where we tell them what to do and no one cares to listen to them. So, we just came up with this production last year, ‘Things fall apart 1’. If you look at our society today, we have lost everything about ourselves, we are just in the quest of so many things. We want to be like the westerners out there without really thinking that before they came down here we had a culture. When we had the programme last year, the children embraced it, so we had to come up with it again this year,” she said.


She, however, urged parents and guardians to speak their native languages to their wards, saying it promotes culture and heritage.

“If you are Yoruba, let your kids learn to speak the language. Culture is an identity, without culture we cannot survive,” she noted.
