We wish to re-emphasize that Parents/Guardians who have ONE or TWO wards in the school are expected to MAKE FULL PAYMENT (100%) of their wards’ fees; without the option of paying by installment BEFORE school resumes each term. Parents/guardians with more than two wards in the school will however have the option of paying 2/3rds (75%) of their total bill BEFORE the day of re-opening and then pay the remainder by resumption of school after mid-term break.

 

ACADEMICS

Teachers have never relented in the bid to ensure school improvement.  This has been evident in areas where teachers have gone the extra mile to develop the enthusiasm for learning and a desire for excellence.  New individual and challenging targets have been set.

Teachers have worked assiduously and have managed to improve the quality of teaching.  Consequently, there is a marked improvement in the quality of teaching and learning in recent times. 

 

Parents are reminded to take keen interest in their wards’ academic progress and to make quality time to assist them.

We write to notify parents that the Oxford Science Success Books for Grades 1 to 6 are available in the school. Please contact our front desk for your ward’s copy.
