We thank the Almighty God for the grace to conclude this half term successfully. We also appreciate our parents/guardians for their continuous support and pray God will continue to bless them.

Early Morning and Afternoon Classes for SSS1 and SSS2 Classes
Extension classes for the SSS1 and SSS2 students will continue upon resumption from the mid-term break. In view of this, all senior school students are expected to resume for early morning classes in school at 7AM. Afternoon classes shall commence at 3PM. Parents/Guardians are to note that these 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.
Late-coming to school by day students
Some 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; housewears 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 many 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 withrules and regulations of the school.
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.
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).

Fifty (50) copies of the book, “Dream and Achieve” and about two hundred(200) copies of the book, “The Nigerian Dream” were donated to the school by the author and alumnus of the school, Kola Olutimehin (a member of the ’83 set of this school). Copies of the “The Nigerian Dream”, a motivational book, will be given to some of our awardees at the Valedictory Service on 16 July, 2019.
In a bid to ensure our students have access to the best public convenience, the 1983 set of this school renovated the toilets of the school main building. This donation will definitely make the environment more conducive for our students. On behalf of the entire staff, I appreciate the alumni of this school for keeping in touch with their alma mater and also doing all they can to ensure the vision and mission statements of this school are realised.
An SSS2D student of this school, Ademikanra Adedamola, donated four copies of the book, “Effective English for Senior Secondary School” by Montgomery, Okebukola and Bisong. The school receives these donations with immense appreciation.
