Order in the school
We are making conscious effort to return to the values that make Angels School what it is,

“An International Christian School”.

 

We teach our children to be confident and assertive within the confines of cherished values and norms.  It is a pleasant sight to see “Angels” making the conscious effort to greet and respond respectfully to adults presence. We are correcting and strengthening the characteristics that make us unique.  Experience our early morning atmosphere of worship and silence hour, while being welcomed by a warm and pleasant teachers on duty.

 

Visiting hours
While maintaining an open door policy for parents, students and visitors, we are resolved to create an uninterrupted atmosphere of teaching and learning.  In view of this parents and visitors seeking audience with teachers should endeavor to do so before assembly, during the break hours or after closing. Parents who visit the school during class hours are advised to report first to the reception. We believe that this directive when adhered to will give the teacher the ample time to attend to the visitor.

 

Reconstituted disciplinary committee
The disciplinary committee of the school has been reconstituted.  The four member committee chaired by the Head of School will from time to time invite
parents on issues concerning their wards.  We are called into a ministry to reform the children and parents are encouraged to co-operate in this direction.

 

Health/Sanitation
To secure the health of our children in the light of the outbreak of cholera, pupils are encouraged to come to school with their own cutlery set. 

 

Awards

The British Council Awards to deserving Cambridge schools, pupils and teachers is here again and Angels school has the honour of being invited.  The school will like to send the following pupils for their excellent performance at the checkpoint exams to witness the award.

  1. Natanya Anila Bhakta
  2. Denise Orhin
  3. Hae Jin Kim
  4. Kofi Asante
  5. Ama Owusu-Manu

They would be accompanied by the head of school, the Cambridge Co-ordinator and Mrs. Lynda Immanuel, the Grade 6 Science tutor under whose excellence tutelage every student who took science at the primary check point level was adjudged by Cambridge as being very good.

 

Recognition of teachers
To motivate our illustrious teachers not to rest on their oars, Angels School has instituted “teacher of the month” award scheme where the work of teachers are evaluated and recognition made where necessary.  To ensure the success of this scheme, parents are encouraged to send their opinions and assessment of teachers to info@angelsschool.com. Your constructive criticism and commendation will help us give the children the kind of teachers they deserve. We are pleased to announce that sponsorship packages towards this scheme are pouring in and we really appreciate parents and partners for their support.

 

Thank you.

 

Best regards,
BERNARD AGBAGBA
