Please be reminded that no student will be allowed into the school premises at resumption if he/she does not complete his/her take home assignment. Any parent/guardian who brings their ward(s) without fully completing his/her take home assignments would have to ensure the completion of assignments in all the subjects the student offers before such student would be cleared into the hostel. 

BURSARY DEPARTMENT

Please be reminded that all students’ fees must have been paid before resumption and parents/guardians are to bring evidence of payment at resumption or email it to the school ahead of resumption. No student defaulting in payment will be allowed into the school. 

HOSTEL MANAGEMENT 

Resumption time/penalty

 Visual Acuity

Parents / guardians are enjoined to ensure their children / wards take visual acuity test while on midterm break. This is to help parents / guardians ascertain the state of their children / wards sight and also take necessary precautions before bringing them to school.

 Boarding requirements

Parents/guardians should endeavour that their children/wards come with all boarding requirements. Also, items should be distinctly marked with student’s name, though not in very conspicuous places. This will enable easy identification of what belongs to whom in the case of a mix-up or when such item is found around.
