First Bank Account Number
Amount Payable (N)
Note: Every student must present the receipt of the payment of N59,000.00 before he/she is admitted into the dormitory.
Extension Classes for SSS2 and SSS3 Classes
Extension classes for the SSS2 and SSS3 students will continue upon resumption. In view of this, all SSS2 and SSS3 students are expected to resume for early morning classes in school at 7AM. Afternoon classes shall commence at 3PM. A timetable to this effect will be released immediately school resumes in September. Students are strongly advised to be present and punctual. Extension classes for SSS1 students will commence by the second term of the session.
Coming Late to School
Few students still come late to school in spite of the continuous sensitisation against this. All students are expected to be in school latest 8:00AM and be part of the daily morning assembly.
We have discovered that the late-coming of students to school is mostly caused by parents. Consequently, we plead with parents who drop their children in school daily to be alive to this responsibility and ensure they drop them in school early.
Student’s Dress Code (School Uniform and Shoes; House Wears for Boarders)
In spite of continuous admonition to parents/guardians to sew new sets of uniforms for their children/wards at the beginning of each session, it is disheartening to note that few of our students are in school with uniforms and house wears they have outgrown. We have been sending such students home (day students) while boarders are not allowed in classes until parents/guardians make replacements. Girls’ gowns should not be tight-fitting and should cover their knees while boys’ shorts should be in the range of the knee cap. Senior boys are not permitted to come to school in jeans or tightly-sewn trousers otherwise known as ‘pencil’. The recommended colour of shoes is black; no other colour is allowed. The sole of shoes should be black as well. Only white and black pairs of socks are allowed. Ankle socks are not allowed. Shoes should be flat and not high-heeled. Boots are not allowed. Shoes and socks that do not conform to the school rules and regulations will be confiscated. Boys’ haircut should be very low and even. Other styles of haircut apart from this are not allowed in school. Students should be properly dressed in accordance with rules and regulations of the school.
Parents/Guardians are hereby informed that the recommended school cardigans are available in the school at the rate of N2,800.00. Kindly note that only the recommended school cardigans would be permitted in the school and any cardigan at variance with the recommended type would be seized.
Electronic Gadgets in School
In spite of repeated warnings to our students to desist from bringing electronic gadgets such as phones, tablets, laptop computers and so on to school, a handful of our students still bring them. This is a reminder to parents that the school will not return any seized gadget. The seized items will be donated during Charity Programme to the less privileged.
Boarders Dining Etiquette
As a matter of necessity, each boarder student should resume to school with sufficient cutlery. No boarder will be allowed to lend or borrow any type of cutlery.
The ISI Mobile NewsApp
All school related information can be found on ISI NewsApp. Parents/guardians should cultivate the habit of regularly checking this App to keep abreast of developments in the school. The NewsApp can be downloaded on the school website (www.isi.ui.edu.ng).
Quality Assurance in Service Delivery
Every school term, the Institute of Education, University of Ibadan, conducts a supervision of the teaching and learning activities in the school to ensure quality service delivery. I am glad to report that the school management received a good report this term.
Sea School Training at Apapa Lagos
Eighty-nine (89) students, which included the school prefects and other interested SSS 2 students, took part in the leadership training mentioned above. The training lasted from 24th July through 29 July, 2019. The training is necessary to help the students acquire necessary leadership qualities as leaders of tomorrow.
Fifteen (15) copies of The New Caxton Encyclopaedia (vol.9) were donated by the president of ISI’S Student Representative Council (2018/2019 session), Aliu-Momoh Ikpemosi Basir,
Donations to the school this 2018/19 session have been simply overwhelming. The school appreciates all our donors which include our students, parents, teachers, alumni and kind-hearted Nigerians.

From the Desk of the Principal
The principal and the school management wish to appreciate all parents/guardians for their unalloyed support and understanding throughout the 2018/19 session. We are fully committed to the realisation of the mission and vision of ISI.
Long live ISI.
God bless you.
