UTME Coaching and School Lesson

Parents/Guardians who have not paid the coaching fee of their children/wards who are participating in the ongoing UTME coaching or school lesson should do so immediately to avoid sanctions by the school.

Late-coming to school by day students

Some students still come late to school, in spite of the continuous sensitization 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 bring their children to 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 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 to the rules 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 the 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.

Boarder’s Pocket Money

Boarders are not allowed to keep their pocket money in the hostels. All pocket money should be deposited into the IGR Account No. 2017816821 and the tellers or cyber receipt (if payment is made online) should be tendered at the Accounts office of the school.

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).
