NEWSLETTER VOLUME 10 No. 9 (DECEMBER 2021)
It is always heart-warming and fulfilling to pull through to the end of a successful term. At times like this, it will not be out of place to heave a sigh of relief and shout ‘Thank you God’. It has been an exciting learning experience and adventure. We created an engaging learning environment and with your support, our children have substantially developed more skills, confidence and love for learning.
We wish to appreciate all our parents for believing and collaborating with us and we reassure you of our continuous effort to uphold our core values and our mission- teaching to count; and focusing on what counts.
CLOSING FOR FIRST TERM 2021/2022 ACADEMIC SESSION
The first term of 2021/2022 academic session has officially closed, this day 10th December, 2021.
Different classes were assigned specific themes which guided them in the concluded term. The outcome was showcased on the day of the exit point presentations. It was a huge success. Thank you all for the support we enjoyed. Certificates were also awarded to parents who came in on that day.
TERMLY ASSESSMENT/ HOLIDAY HOME WORK
This was based on CA1, CA2 (generated from class weekly tests), class work, assignments, projects and examination scores.
We recorded a remarkable improvement. This is good news since our standard is not lowered.
Holiday home work pack has been given to each of the learners. In addition, the holiday pack contains examination scripts, result checker and school bill for next term. Please note that holiday home work will equally add up to their termly grades henceforth.
REVIEW OF THE CONCLUDED TERM’S ACTIVITIES
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (INSET DAYS))
During the mid-term break, the management and staff were trained on Modern Teaching
Approach. Shortly after, the early years teachers had another training; ‘Circle time with a Difference’ in company of many other teachers within Abuja and beyond. It was an eye opening event.
PAYMENT OF BILLS
As always, we commend parents who always ensure bills are paid
fully on time and in the same vein, encourage early payment from all. That will enhance better planning and implementation of the school activities.
Morning drills, after school academic assistance and weekends special lesson programmes are some of what we put together to ensure G_injas children always do more.
CLASS NOMENCLATURE IN THE NURSERY
Henceforth, the nursery classes, in line with government directives, will be Nursery 1, 2 and 3, no longer Tweenies, Nursery 1 and 2. The change already started with their exam scripts and holiday home work pack.
UPCOMING EVENTS IN THE SECOND TERM
Watch out for the following events in the second term:
CHILDREN’S WELL BEING
The essence of provision of good food and resource materials for our children cannot be over emphasised.
Kindly ensure that the food you give your children contain all the necessary nutrients especially protein (piece of fish, meat or egg).
Adequate provision of writing materials (pen, pencil, eraser, ruler, crayons) is encouraged to avoid waste of time during lessons.
Communication is a two-way thing. Kindly ensure you always read and endorse/respond to information we pass through the children in communication books and the letters.
We still maintain an open door policy. Kindly book an appointment with the school administrators or your child’s teacher if you have any concern.
Our pool of uniforms contains:
1. A short/trouser and shirt with tie for boys in primary and college respectively, black shoe and navy blue socks.
2. A pinafore/skirt and blouse for girls in primary and college respectively.
3. Blue and yellow T-shirts to be worn on dark jeans.
4. Sportswear of various colours, canvas sneakers, socks (red, blue, green, purple)
5. Lemon T-shirts on jeans.
Any of 1 – 3 can be used on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 4 on Tuesdays and 5 on Thursdays.
The following families were blessed with bundles of joy:
On a sad note, we lost one of our own, the pretty damsel, Chidimma Emegwalu. May her soul rest in peace.
