The annual event of ‘a-day’ Headmaster, Assistant-Headmaster and Head of Departments (HODs) from each annex was marked via arrays of activities.

Excellent students from the three Nursery and Primary schools under MIMS clinched the ticket of ‘One-day HM’ thanks to their superlative academic performances across the group of schools.
Traditionally, the seat is usually reserved for the best across board, but the 2021 edition was in a different class.
The year revealed Master Abdulfatai Abdulwahab of MIMS Nursery and Primary school, Shomolu, who won the prestigious golden cup of Education, Training and Research (ETR) Consultant Annual written examination competition held in March 2021 in Lagos.
