Early Morning and Afternoon Classes for SS1 and SS2 Classes

Extension classes will continue immediately after the mid-term break. Parents/Guardians and SS1 students are particularly enjoined to take note that these extension classes are a part of regular classes. Students who fail to attend may be at a disadvantage, since topics treated in these classes will not be repeated, except during revision classes. Hence, parents/guardians should please support this arrangement and ensure their children/wards attend these classes. Parents and students are enjoined not to relent because outstanding success is our collective target.

Coming Late to School

Parents/Guardians are reminded that the School frowns at late coming. Students who come late are at a disadvantage as they are punished or sent home. Every student is expected to be in school latest 8a.m. and be part of the morning assembly/class reading activity. We, therefore, urge and appeal, once again, to parents/guardians of our day students to ensure that students get to school before 8a.m.

Student’s Dress Code

A handful of our students still come to school in 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 and girls on afro must have their haircut even. Other styles of haircut apart from this are not allowed in the School.

School Cardigans

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 will be permitted in the school and any cardigan at variance with the recommended type will 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.
