Last year, the Talent in Autism show, our annual event, took place at the Lagoon Front Event Centre in Marina, on the 11th of December.
The event kicked off with an opening prayer by a staff, Mr. Olufunmbi, followed by the Anthem led by a student, Abiodun Trombi. An exciting rendition of the song “What a Friend we have in Jesus” was performed by the staff (including the Proprietress).
The Bible reading was taken by Chidinma, a former student, now an Assistant Therapist. Presentation by our children included dances by the Blue, Yellow & Pink classes; recitation of memory verse by Bose; song by Oreofe and Friends (titled Celebration) and a piano presentation by Tomiwa. Last but not the least, Emem Nkana also presented an overwhelming live painting on canvas.
The invited guests were not left out. Ebuka and friends thrilled the audience with a song and piano presentation, while the Down Syndrome Foundation presented a colourful and touching drama.
The event was covered by PHD Media. Celebrities in attendance included Nnenna from Wale Adenuga Production, Monalisa Chinda (a Nollywood actress) and Emem Isong (a Nollywood film producer). A documentary on various interviews with our parents was also showcased.
The event was capped with the auctioning of our children’s art works, poetry presentation by a student of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), and most remarkably, Emeka, left the crowd in awe with his accurate knowledge of calendar dates.
It was indeed an enjoyable time for everyone. Ayomide Akande gave the vote of thanks, while Mrs. Essien (our school Administrator), said the closing prayer.
