Sports Day Newsletter March 2013

Welcome to our Athletic Sports and Visiting Day. We hope very much that you will have a lovely time with your Wards. We are striving to make our environment much more attractive. PLEASE do not leave litter/bottles/cartons etc lying around the school campus. PLEASE place rubbish in the bins and bags provided.   PLEASE leave us as you found us – neat and tidy!      THANK YOU!
PARKING   Please park in the areas by the Parent’s Chalet unless otherwise directed by the Security Officers.


We would be grateful if all parents / drivers / security etc would use the Toilets in the College rather than urinate in the open air. Thank you

ALL JSS1 – SS2 Pupils vacate on Saturday, 23rd March


The Proposed SS3 two week break
The Principal originally put this two week break into the Calendar to give the SS3 students a break! Some parents were for it, others totally against. This has now had to be changed for the following reasons:

1. This change is not of the Principal’s making but due to the last minute planning of WAEC, as they cannot make up their minds about dates for practicals / orals / and possibly changed examination dates of several examinations which are likely to be in the next two weeks! We were informed of this on Wednesday and so informed parents of SS3 immediately!

2. Three years ago WAEC changed the actual day of an examination the day before it was due to happen......we found out by accident from Oko Comprehensive School who had to come to us to borrow chemicals because they weren't prepared because of the sudden change!!

3. I should point out that we received the Cambridge Examination Timetable last October (as every year) and there are never any changes.

4. The earliest that WAEC may be able to tell us revised dates is Monday (but in our experience unlikely) as they are "HOPING" to meet on Saturday.

The Principal is not prepared to risk your wards failing Examinations because they are absent from College and WAEC suddenly changes the dates without warning.
If you have complaints please direct them to The Registrar, WAEC and NOT the Principal.


Parents are reminded that if they wish to speak with their wards then the permission of the Principal has to be sought first of all. Permission cannot be granted by any other person. Parents should also note that there will be times when permission will not be granted, as it is not convenient to the College or its programmes. Your cooperation is appreciated and expected.


PARENTS ARE REMINDED that if their wards are caught with Contraband at the beginning of Terms and on Visiting Days then those pupils will be gated on the next Visiting Day and Parents not allowed to visit their Ward.
Parents are EXPECTED to abide by the Rules of the College and not aid and abet their Wards.

Parents are reminded that in the College Prospectus that each parent received when they purchased an Admission Form it is clearly stated that:
A full Term’s notice must be given in writing of a parent’s intention to withdraw a student from the school. Failure to do so will result in full payment of fees for the Term being charged.
 This also means that no Transfer Certificates / Transcripts etc will be released until the Fees have been  

Any parent who is able to get Parasols from different companies for the Parents’ Picnic Area then please do so for the benefit of all. Please let the Principal know.  Thank you.


SS2 Parents are to pay =N=40,000 to the Account’s Department for the Citizenship and Leadership Training Course which ALL SS2 pupils take every year. SS2 Students, who reside outside of Lagos and Ibadan will return to the College on Saturday 13th April to travel on 14th April. Those in Lagos and Ibadan will be told of arrangements to collect them.

They are committed to Academic excellence, with students attending 21 hours of tuition a week on all courses. Their courses fall into five different categories: Academic courses, English as a Foreign Language, Business and Enterprise, University Preparation and Film Academy.

The 2013 summer school will run between 30th June and 10th August 2013, and consists of three 2-week sessions. Each course lasts for a minimum of 2-weeks and a maximum of 4-weeks.
