10th January 2018
Dear Parents and Friends,
Compliments of the season…and now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been, 365 new days and 365 new opportunities!
We welcomed back all students and staff on Sunday. In addition, a new staff, Mr Andrew Umukoro, who is a senior English teacher, joined us from Day Waterman College – welcome to the JHC family.
Our focus this term is the continuance and consolidation of teaching and learning, this being in addition to our preparation for the forthcoming BECE, CIE Checkpoint and IGCSE external examinations.
The airlines have disappointed us again as there were no flights from Lagos to Benin on Sunday (and two weeks before this), consequently, a vast majority of our Lagos parents opted to send their children by road. Thus, it would be wise to consider whether air travel is still viable in view of the unreliability of the Lagos-Benin route. Please let me know your thoughts in this regard.
A fuller newsletter will be sent out next week.
In conclusion, ‘I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something’.
Have an awesome week!
Mr. Abraham Swart
