The Valentine’s Day celebration is an annual event at our centre which is aimed at fostering social interaction among the children.
The event of the day commenced at about 11.25am with an opening prayer by Bose Missionary. The children dressed gorgeously in red and white attires and the party kicked off with a question “Why Are We Here?” Abiodun was the first to answer. He said “We are here because it is Valentine’s Day”. Emmanuel Okorie then added that we were gathered to show love.
The children came out to dance in batches, together with the staff. There were lots of thriving social activities which included “dancing round the chair” and “tray dance” by the children and staff. There were different rounds and winners emerged from each round. Gifts were awarded to winners of each competition.
There was another round of dance by all the children who were dressed in white and red, after which Mr. Val and Miss Val (Ademide and Bose Missionary) were presented with gifts.
Not only were the children excited, the staff also had a fun-filled day with several activities. The programme came to a close at 1.10pm with a group photograph of the staff and the children.
