DECEMBER, 2020.                         Term 1

Dear parents,

APPRECIATION

We thank the Almighty Allah for the grace to conclude the first term of the 2020 / 2021 session successfully. We also appreciate the cooperation of our parents/ guardians and pray God will continue to bless them.

ACADEMIC UPDATES

We thank Allah (SWT) that the 1st term of 2020/2021 academic session which commenced on Monday, 21st September, 2020 ends today, Friday, 18th December, 2020.The first three weeks of resumption were used to wrap-up the inconclusive 2019/2020 academic session due to the COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

RESUMPTION

In line with the new directive from the Federal Government which ordered all schools to remain closed till 18th January, 2021, other things being equal, we plan to resume for 2nd term on Sunday, 17th January, 2021 (Boarders), and Monday 18/01/2021 (Day Pupils ), in sha Allah. We also use this medium to appeal to all parents to make available all the boarders for proper check-in on SUNDAY as the school does not allow any boarder to resume during the week.

SCHOOL FEE PAYMENTS

We wish to express our profound gratitude to parents who pay their ward(s) fees on time. The teller for the second term school fees is enclosed in pupils’ report cards. We implore all parents to pay on time for smooth academic work as the school will no longer condone defaulters and late payment. All necessary fees should be paid within two weeks of resumption. May Allah continue to enrich your purse, Aameen.

UPWARD REVIEW OF SCHOOL FEES

This is to inform our esteemed parents that due to the economic situation of the country which has adversely affected the school overhead expenses, there will be slight upward review of the school fee. To this end, the increase will take effect from next term [2nd term ] of this session [2020/2021].

Shoes should be flat and not high- heeled. Boots are not allowed. Boys’ haircut should be very low and even while girls are to plait their hair or have their haircut even. Other styles of haircut apart from this are not allowed.

SCHOOL TIME STRUCTURE

As we are planning to resume full school activities come second term (other things being equal), the school time shall starts by 7:30am and ends by 2:30 pm.

SCHOOL/ PARENTS SHARING INFORMATION

So that our whole school community is aware of latest news, events and activities in school, we implore our parents and guardians to provide the school with their current WhatsApp numbers and email addresses. If you lose or change your number, please inform the school so that you will always receive our messages.

We wish our parents a peaceful and prosperous Holiday with your wards, and we look forward to seeing your children back at school with us on Sunday, 17th January, 2021 / Monday, 18th January, 2021
