Dear Parents and Friends,
I trust that this letter finds you well.
Firstly, a reminder to all Parents of Years 9, 10 and 11 students to attend the 2nd Annual JHC Careers Fair on Saturday, 22nd of June 2019. The programme will start at 10.30 am sharp, and guest speakers will share insights about certain careers; also, information booths (14 to date) from both national and international Foundation Schools and Universities will be in attendance.
Secondly, the College received the CAIE (Cambridge) Checkpoint results yesterday for the Year 9 students. The results for English, Mathematics and the Sciences were fantastic with Purity Onoyemeakpo scoring three perfect sixes! We congratulate all the students and staff for the excellent set of results. However, this is no time to ‘rest on our oars’ but to labour and toil more, with a single-minded focus in preparation for the next two examinations, IGCSE and WAEC.
Thirdly, Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 students have completed the International Progressive Tests (online) in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Sciences. These give an indication of progress to date for each student as per curriculum, provides a predicted IGCSE grade and give both parents and teachers advice and guidance for further improvement. I can state that most are on target with only a handful that need to ‘pull up their socks’ and to do more. However, I am confident that they will do us proud. These reports will be in the Report Envelope when students return home in three weeks’ time.
In conclusion, ‘Through hard work, perseverance and a faith in God, you can live your dreams.’.
Here is wishing you a joyful Thursday and may your blessings be bountiful.
Abraham P. Swart
