Topdeal College, Ikorodu, on Tuesday, cleaned its community.

The cleaning exercise, titled, ‘Lasunwon health walk,’ had students, and staff of the school walk from Ola Aina Street to Omolasho-Ilariogun Ade-Ekun Street, Lasunwon, Ikorodu sweeping drains and picking wastes littered around.

Proprietor, Topdeal College, Dr Oladeji Akinola, explained that the school decided to show appreciation to the community by cleaning the environment.

Students and staff of the school were seen with various cleaning instruments as they cleared drains around and packed waste along the streets.

He said, “Lasunwon Health Walk is an attempt to recognise the role the community has played in Topdeal College. Our students, as you can see, moved out today to pick up every piece of dirt around Lasunwon axis. We know that the success of Topdeal College is connected to the Lasuwon community. It is a way of appreciating and giving back to the community.”

Orija of Okegbegun, Baale Adeowo Idris, while addressing the students encouraged them not to join bad gangs.

He said, “I want to talk to the students. You have to be a good ambassador of your family, your school, your local government, and your country. Don’t join bad gangs. Anybody that joins bad gangs does have a life. You won’t live a good life. Face your education. Once you have a good education you have everything. Always remember the child of whom you are. Your home is very important. Pray always. Prayer is the key to success. To my proprietor, this is the first of its kind in our community. Topdeal leads while others follow. The teachers, you’ve been doing great things in our community. We really appreciate you.”

He also emphasised that Topdeal College “Has brought progress to this community. When it comes to students or candidates taking WASSCE, GCE, or UTME, Topdeal is one of the best schools in the Ikorodu Division.”

“This is the first of its kind, and I will implore other schools to follow suit,” he said.
