For instance, students can take classes in their traditional classroom set-up or be taught in smaller groups for more grounded discussions and experiments. In addition, there may be other members of staff helping the students after class, for example, we have additional support to help our children to improve their academic performance.

WE GIVE BACK
We offer over 3 million naira in scholarships and financial aid to our students annually. This is in a bid to reduce the effect of the harsh economic climate; austerity deprives even the brightest students of qualitative education. It is also our way of rewarding the hard work of some of our students.
We believe that the home front should be conducive for a child to bloom because the nature of the home is usually mirrored on the them; in their attitudes and performance. In line with this, we organize workshops for parents on issues that they may face on a daily basis, for example, health workshops, fire safety workshops, etc.
Charity and Giving
As a school we encourage our students to be active members of their communities by helping out in any way they can. For example, for Valentine’s Day, we solicit donations in unused clothes and other items that could be given to children in orphanage homes.
