We welcome you once again to the last lap of the 2017/2018 academic session. The term had begun on a smooth ground with the kids both old and new settling into their respective classes. The little ones in the crèche have been having lots of outdoor activities and have started sitting in circles to listen and participate in their usual fun learning activities in preparation for Barney come next academic session.
As we prepare to move into the other half of the term, there are activities that we will bring to your attention as we hope you will make out time for them.
The children’s day is actually on a Sunday this year but we will be marking the day for them on Friday the 25th May 2018. To this end, the kids are to come to school dressed in comfortable party wear with lots of snacks and drinks to share amongst themselves. The kids in both the EYFs and Keystage classes have different presentations to showcase and this will commence from 11am in the school hall. They are therefore calling on their parents to find time to attend and cheer them up too.
Continuous Assessment Tests:
The continuous assessment tests will commence from Monday the 28th of May to Monday the 4th of June 2018. Much as the children will be having their day being celebrated, parents should ensure that their kids read and go over the activities they have done so far as teachers have been sending home text books and worksheets. Let’s not forget that the half term adds up to the child’s cumulative average at the end of the term.
Remember if we fail to plan, we plan to fail.
Tuesday the 29th of May will be a public holiday to mark the nation’s nineteen years of uninterrupted democracy. Kids will be expected back to school on Wednesday the 30th of May, 2018 to continue with assessment and other activities.
Outbreak of Diseases:
We have noticed that there is an outbreak of some contagious illness such as measles, chicken pox and mumps. As a school, we try to create and maintain a safe and conducive environment for all our kids. Parents should help us by closely observing their kids for any symptom like rashes, fever, swellings on the jaw (swollen jaws), etc to avoid being contracted by other kids especially the little babies in our midst.
The school appreciates all her parents who have cleared up their child(ren)’s fees for the term much as we urge those with outstanding balances to endeavor to clear up before Monday the 28th May 2018 to avoid disrupting their assessments.
Year Book Advertorial:
The second edition of our Year Book will be produced in celebration of our Move-up/Graduating pupils. We call on parents to take advantage of this to advertise their business as well as felicitate with the graduands. For more information, please see Ms. Uzo or Ms. Fola after school on or before the 12th of June 2018.
School Council/Open Day:
The School Council Meeting for this term will hold on Tuesday 5th of June 2018. Amongst other issues is the dissolution of the current school council executive members.
Please, let’s have a full house on this day.
The Open Day this term will be an interactive session with the parents as this is the last term for this session. It will take place on the 6th of June 2018 from 10 am. As usual, remember to pick time slots(s) in your kid(s) class immediately after the council meeting on Tuesday.
Admission 2018/2019 Academic Session:
Admission into all classes for the 2018/2019 academic session has begun with limited spaces available. Take advantage of this window period and tell friends and family as admission will be on “first come first serve” basis.
P.S. Please note that if there is a change in the children’s Day Celebration. We will communicate to you.
