The Acting President, Osibanjo advised that children should learn new skills on holiday. He made this statement during a chat with newsmen on the sideline of the birthday thanksgiving service of Pastor Salami Ololade in Lagos on Sunday.
He advised school children to endeavor to, learn a skill because it will help them much later in life. According to him, “because it is a long holiday, it is a great time to do something new. Those who like to learn a skill, whatever skill that may be, I wish that when I was growing up, I learned even carpentry.’’
He said school children on holiday can learn something new that would impact their lives and those of their communities in new fields of technology.
We totally agree with this advice, as we recommend that children should use their long holiday to learn a new skill and do something different than school work. [Read: Summer Camp Guide]

“I am sure these children will return as quickly as possible; so, we look forward to their return.”
