1ST TERM 2019/2020 ACADEMIC SESSION MID-TERM BREAK NEWSLETTER

Theme: “Study, Try, Achieve for Recognition and Success” (S.T.A.R.S)

 

Esteemed Parent

We have come to the middle of the first term and I want to say a heartfelt thank you for the support you have given us so far. We are continuing our focus on being learning centered, while celebrating the progress and achievements of all our students. Not only do we consider our students’ innate ability and their performance in class-work, homework, the term’s exams; we also spend time reflecting on how they learn, how to raise their confidence as learners and how to harness their motivation and enthusiasm for learning.     

 

Academics

Our classes ran smoothly in the first half of the term. Teachers were supportive to their learners and prompt in their lesson attendance.

 

SS3 and JS3 Academic Drill

The school has put a lot of programme in place for our SS3 and JS3 students to help them excel in their forthcoming JAMB (UTME), SSCE/NECO and BECE examinations respectively. They will be drilled through.

1)       Our early morning classes that have started from 6:30am – 7:30am (which also involves the use of the CBT Centre)

2)       Saturday classes from 10:00am – 1:00pm

Strategies are put in place to go over their scheme from SS1-SS3 hence, it is important that all students in the exam classes are resident in the hostel.

 

International Examinations

Our preparatory classes for SAT, TOEFL, and IELTS have started; there is still opportunity to register students who have not indicated interest in any of these programmes. Parents are therefore advised to take advantage of this programme for scholarship and opportunity to study abroad.
