Five students from Mayflower Private School were rewarded for academic excellence at the 2019 Ex-Mays Global Charity Award which took place at the M.K.O. Abiola Hall on Friday, October 4, 2019.
The accolades went to the best in each of the classes from JSS2 to SS3. They are Onuaguluchi Chioma, David Chinyere, Badru Ifeoluwa, Adeogun Praise and Adeboye Olaitan.
Award certificates as well as a sum of thirty thousand naira each were handed to the beneficiaries by the Vice President of the African unit of the organisation, Dr. Bukunola Akinlesi, who also reminded the gathering of the Ex-Mays Global Convention scheduled to hold in Calgary, Canada, next week.
