13-year-old Pupil Builds Website For His School
Oladipo Adesiyan, a 13-year-old pupil, has developed a website for his school, Messiah High School, Akure, Ondo State. According to reports, Adesiyan developed the passion for web designing during a long vacation in 2018 when he couldn't collect his result before the close of school
It all started one afternoon after my school had closed for the long holiday. Unfortunately for me, I couldn’t collect my result that term. Although it was painful, I had enough time to think. I began to think of different ways that pupils could view their results online. So I did a lot of research and I settled for an e-portal for the school"
I had always loved to create and design websites since I was in primary school. Although, I didn’t create any website then, but I started web development with codes in February 2019,” Adesiyan said.
He said, “My dad has never liked the idea and mum initially saw it as a waste of time. But when she saw the kind of stuff I did with the school website she became one of my fans.”
Following the development of the school's website, the school management has promised to reward Adesiyan with something tangible and to further develop his skills.
