    All praises and adoration belong to Almighty Allah, the creator of creatures, the Lord of the whole world. May His blessings and mercies be upon the Noble Prophet Muhammad (SAW), his household, companions, and the generality of those who hold the banner of Islam tenaciously till the day of mutual loss and gain. Amin. We continue to thank and appreciate you for entrusting your child/ward’s wholesome development to us as we remain partners committed to human development. We equally appreciate your efforts and prompt support in the payment of school fees. To God be the glory as the 2nd term finally comes to an end today, the 5th of April, 2024. The Second term of the 2023/2024 academic session has ended on a great note of academic, moral, and spiritual excellence and the Third Term of the 2023/2024 academic session will commence on Monday, 29th April, 2024. Hence, the call for you to note the following:


    1.0 ADMINISTRATION: The management of the school has ensured that all teachers are conversant with the ever-evolving teaching methods through training and supervision. This is to maintain the high academic standards that we are known for. The teachers have remained committed to their work as teaching and learning conditions are still being improved by the management. No stone was left unturned to ensure the quality of academic standards. Our school facilities were also upgraded to meet up with the requirement of the 21st-century School.


    2.0 ACADEMICS AFFAIRS: This term witnessed various forms of competitions in the three domains of education (Cognitive- Quiz, Class activities, Psychomotor- Sporting, and Affective- public speaking, Debate etc.). The welfare of learners was a major focus of this term as teaching and learning were conducted in a serene learning environment with particular attention given to the different needs of the learners. The result has been quite encouraging. Besides the foregoing, the school ensured an improved learning environment, while the students were exposed to different methodologies suitable for their individual learning. The school has also ensured that the environment is safe and conducive to learning. For us, every child is important and has a right to learn new things on a daily basis, this is why we use the KAGAN teaching method in class as it enables our learners to learn in a cooperative manner and helps us to have an academic need of every child attended to.


    3.0 EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES: In the course of the term, we had a nice time carrying out extra-curricular activities, particularly during the preparation for our Inter-club exhibition Competition. Furthermore, some of our exceptional students represented the school well in an external Inter-House Sports Competition. We also had our class quizzes/ debates classes which all made the term worthwhile. We hope to do more in the coming term.


    4.0 PUNCTUALITY TO SCHOOL: Punctuality is the Soul of business. This is to remind our esteemed parents that resumption to school remains 7:40 am Monday – Friday. The school frowns at lateness as it is compulsory for all scholars to participate in the morning assembly and surrogate exercise which begins at 7:45 am.


    5.0 ASP (STUDENT ACADEMIC SUPPORT PROGRAM): We remain committed to supporting our students in their academics. This, we do plan through ASP Morning Drills. This will be in form of a morning class that will be held for students in need of extra tutoring in Mathematics and English Language before the commencement of normal lessons for the day. This will be organized to improve the upcoming learners to enable them to understand better what has been previously taught.


    6.0 SURROGACY SESSIONS: The school places a high premium on mentorship sessions which will be held twice weekly. We will be using these periods to correct undesirable behaviors in our scholars while imparting them corrective instructions with the aim of bringing them to the path of rectitude. Every student is expected to be punctual for this program and Parents are advised to complement the School’s efforts by inspecting their notes regularly.


    7.0 EXTERNAL EXAMINATION REGISTRATION: The school has registered its students for the year 2024 external examination (WAEC, UTME, NECO, BECE). We use this medium to advise our parents whose children are in these classes to encourage them to study very hard for these exams for optimal performance. We have adequately prepared them; revisions are still going on through WhatsApp and Google meet App. With your prayers, we are trusting and believing in God for a better outcome this year.


    8.0 SECURITY CONSCIOUSNESS: The school places premium importance on the safety of students and staff members, therefore putting up some stringent measures to ensure this is achieved to the satisfaction of parents and other stakeholders. While the school plays its part, Parents should also be security conscious at all times. If you are not able to bring your ward(s) to school in person, please ensure he or she comes in the company of fellow students. Parents should be very careful about their choice of transportation and ensure the driver or rider is trustworthy. Always remember that kidnapping has become a lucrative business in our present world. May the protection of God continually be on you and your lots.


    9.0 AFTER-SCHOOL/EXTENSION CLASSES: The extension classes as usual were arranged to hold from Monday – Saturday for the SS3 Students, while the JSS3 Students were fully engaged from Monday to Friday for the extension classes. Mock examinations were also conducted for the learners to ascertain their level of preparedness for external examinations. The essence of doing this is to fully prepare them to get the best grades in their Junior and Senior External Examinations respectively.


    10.0 SOCIALS: In an effort to give our learners a balanced education and development, the school emphasizes the psychomotor development:
    10.1 Haflah Celebration: This is to inform our esteemed parents that the” Haflah” scheduled to be held for the last term could not come up due to unforeseen circumstances. In lure of this, the school management has decided to call a meeting with the concerned parents to decide on the new date. Please bear with us, all inconvenience is highly regretted.
    10.2 The Annual Prize Giving Ceremony: The school is preparing for this year’s Prize Giving Day where the graduands shall be celebrated. Also, other students shall showcase their talents on that day.
    10.3 Anti-Bullying Week: We plan to have anti-bullying week which will be held on weekly basis and it will be well-anchored by the school. The objectives will be quite clear; to drum the unequivocal stance of the school further into the consciousness of the students.


    11.0 DISCIPLINE: Learning is incomplete without discipline, this is why we continue to instill discipline in our students, thereby tackling all cases of indiscipline impartially. For us, it does not matter the level of indiscipline; it must be confronted completely with commensurate measures.
    11.1 Combating Bullying: In our efforts to curb reports of bullying in the school, we now have a bully alert feature available to all teachers to immediately alert the management about any case of bullying in the school. This is in a bid to encourage cordial relationships among students. Students found wanting will be made to face the consequences of their actions, which may include suspension from school.
    11.2 Making students accountable for their wrongdoings: Students who break school rules now write statements that are filed for future reference. Some defaulting students are also asked to take part in community service as a way of teaching them to do the right thing at all times.

We also advise our esteemed parents to watch with keen interest the kind of friends their child(ren) keeps and places they go to as kidnapping is on the increase. We appeal to parents to adhere to the directives from our security men while dropping off and picking up the children so as not to obstruct movement in and out of the School. In order to avoid misplaced books, parents are encouraged to always monitor books brought home by their ward(s) and also ensure the complete return of these books to school.
