JHC Parents Newsletter 1st June, 2018

Dear Parents and Friends,

As we are getting ready to receive our Year 7, 8 and 10 students this Sunday, I want to thank my staff for the extra work that was done to support our Year 9 and 11 students over the past week for the respective BECE and IGCSE examination preparations.

With teachers’ comments such as, ’ When you find yourself lying awake at 3:00 in the morning, wondering what you can do to make yourself a better teacher, you have reached the point where you really do understand what teaching all about is ; and, ‘ This is not a profession — it is a passion !’ confirms that teaching is a calling and a labour of love. I wholeheartedly believe that teaching is a high calling. It is not merely a call to help students learn how to read and write well or be mathematically competent, it is also a call to shape their character and become productively engaged citizens of this world. As such I want to commend all my staff for their commitment and dedication on behalf of the future leaders of Nigeria!

Students have the privilege to bring Flash Drives to school for designated school work. However, a handful of students abuse this as they add movies and music files at home which is against college rules. Parents are requested to check the contents of this before they arrive on Sunday and delete any material which is against college rules. Also, only flash drives (4 to 16 GB) are permitted and not the larger external storage devices which normally exceeds 250 GB.

On 23 rd of June the College will have a Careers Fair ,all Year 9, 10 and 11 Parents and students will be expected to attend – more details to follow soon.

In conclusion, ‘ There’s nothing so kingly or queenly as kindness, and nothing so royal as truth’; and, ‘Teaching is the royal road to learning’.

Yours faithfully
Abraham P. Swart

Principal
