JHC Parents Newsletter 15th May, 2018

Dear Parents and Friends,

Greetings to all our parents and friends from a cool Agbor where we are enjoying the rainy season.

There is a saying that ‘practice makes perfect’, as such our Year 9 students are in full assessment mode this week in sitting full practice examinations or ‘mock exams’ in getting prepared for the BECE external examinations later this term. The logic is that the more practice they are given, the better the result will be. The standards have been set and this year’s results should be nothing less than the previous achievements.

It may appear that the emphasis for examination preparation is only on the Years 9 and 11 students but far from it, as ALL STUDENTS are expected to learn, revise, study and do their best continuously – this reminder is shared regularly.

I am privileged to have two large display boards outside my office which have students’ art work on it and these pieces are changed every term. The latest displays from our Year 10 students are simply breath-taking and a testimony to the dedication of both our art teacher Mrs Margaret Ogbe-Asenguah and her students.

The use of colours is vivid and stimulating, field of depth and perspective excellent and use of space interesting and bold; some pieces are contrasting, and others are flowing and calm. I have shared some images on the next page.

In conclusion, ‘Life is the art of drawing without an eraser’; and, ‘Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books – especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.’

Yours faithfully

Abraham P. Swart
