We Wish All Our Stakeholders A Happy And Prosperous New Year!!!
In line with the information given in our 9th December, 2021
Newsletter, School has reopened in earnest, with effect from Tuesday, 11th
Management welcomes all members of the ASSI family back to
school. It is profoundly gratifying to see our Angels and Teachers back in
their numbers, full of energy and enthusiasm. We wish to acknowledge all our
loyal parents for your continuous patronage. We, likewise, commend the diligent
efforts of all our hardworking administrative and ancillary staff.
Academic work, based on the Cambridge curriculum, continues
for the 2nd Trimester for related departments, from Preschool to G3 and Secondary.
Likewise, 1st Trimester academic work based on the GES
curriculum, has commenced for our GES stream, comprising G4B- G6B and JHS.
Theme for Trimester
The overarching theme for this Trimester is â€œTotal
Educationâ€. In line with the theme, management, teachers, students and
parents will be engaged in school-wide discussions and share thoughts on what
Total Education should be about. Anyone could share by way of discussion, both virtually and
in-person. There will also be a conference featuring educational
experts, including parents, who will engage the entire Angels family on what
â€˜Total Educationâ€™ (holistic education) should be about. There will be subtopics
about the theme, audio-visual materials will also be shared with parents.
Overall, this should be intriguing and educative
Adherence to COVID-19 Prevention Measures
At ASSI, Management continues to prioritize the health and
safety of all our stakeholders, thus, all parents are strongly advised to
provide their wards with pocket-sized hand sanitizers and nose masks and
reinforce their essence in the fight against the pandemic. All hygiene and
sanitation logistics provided during school hours over the past year, will be
procured for use accordingly.
Books and Stationery
- Textbooks and Stationery for learners in G4B- G6B will be
available for sale, from Wednesday, 12th January, 2022. Please contact the
officer in charge for your wardâ€™s supplies
- Unfortunately, approved textbooks for JHS based on the
GES Common Core Programme (CCP) are yet to be released by publishers. Parents
will be duly notified when the books become available. In the interim all
stationery for JHS learners are available at the bookshop for sale from 12th
- Fresh stock of outstanding books for learners in the
Cambridge Stream (G1-G6) has been procured for sale at the Bookshop. Please
contact your wardsâ€™ class teachers for further details.
Parents will be duly notified by respective Academic HODs
about learnersâ€™ homework schedules in due course, for the necessary
collaboration especially, in the areas of monitoring and supervision.
In accordance with the afore-mentioned theme, teacher
professionalism, learnersâ€™ academic performance and general conduct, and
performance of non-academic staff will be closely monitored for the purposes of
acknowledging and rewarding distinguished performance at the end of the
Key performance indicators (KPIs) for our respective
stakeholders will be announced in due course, not only to facilitate the
process but also to make the exercise objective and minimize subjectivity.
Revision of Academic Calendar
Management has, in consultation with relevant stakeholders,
found it expedient to merge the vacation dates (mid-trimester and
end-of-trimester) across all academic departments, to ease the stress
encountered last year when we had to combine the Semester System of the JHS
with the Trimester System for the rest of the School. This new arrangement
takes immediate effect and is reflected in the current Academic Calendar to be
released shortly Among the key activities to look out for are the following:
- â€˜Inspire Angelsâ€™ (A parent-led motivational programme)
- Open House (A day set aside for parent-teacher interaction
to review learnersâ€™ performance)
- Mid-trimester Exams
- Mid-trimester break
- End of trimester Exams
HODs will update parents on department-specific activities
via their respective platforms, during the course of the trimester.
School Bus Service
In response to an increasing demand from parents, Management
is in the process of acquiring new buses to expand the scope of this service.
There will be a slight upward adjustment in fares not exceeding GhC30, to
accommodate rising operational costs. Details will be shared in due course.
