Lux Tera Leadership Foundation has charged school teachers to impart sound moral values in students to create a formidable moral base.
The Foundation made the call during a workshop tagged, “Re-parenting & Mentoring for a Life of Integrity,” which was organised for 240 staff of the College of Immaculate Conception (CIC) Enugu, on Tuesday, January 11, 2022.
The one-day training programme facilitated by Fr George Ehusani and Dr Okey Ikechukwu, was on the challenge of Re-parenting and Mentoring of Young People Today in a Life of Meaning, Purpose and Integrity.
Fr George Ehusiani is the Executive Director and Lead Faculty of the Lux Terra Leadership Foundation. Dr Okey Ikechukwu is a Senior Fellow, Nnamdi Azikiwe University Business School.
The workshop aimed at equipping the staff of the school with tools and strategies for meeting the challenge of youth formation. CIC is one of the largest secondary schools in Enugu State, with about 1,600 students managed by 260 staff.
The CIC staff members were urged to mentor students with core values of discipline & deferred gratification, truth & honesty, justice & fairness, as well as responsibility & excellence, to enable them attain a life of meaning and integrity.
The Workshop was also an occasion to celebrate the teaching profession and encourage teachers to recognise themselves among those contributing the most to human civilisation and nation building, as they form present and future generations in character and learning.
