Dear Parents and Friends,
We have reached the end of another academic year and upon reflection it has been another successful and joyous one. In fact, on Saturday, 14th of July, at our annual Prizegiving I will share the milestones reached and the joys we have experienced.
With the previous newsletter I congratulated the Year 9 students who did excellently well in the Cambridge Checkpoint examinations . This fantastic achievement was praised throughout Nigeria with the great news placed in national newspapers on several days. Well done!
The students who were part of the International Award for Young People Nigeria (a.k.a JHC DoE), completed the adventurous journey part recently and camping was definitely a new experience for some – but more information on this in the next newsletter.
I have perused all the students reports and commended where necessary and encouraged to improve where required. Please study your child’s report and support where it is needed.
As usual, the final newsletter contains a generous portion of information & reminders and parents are encouraged to familiarise themselves with it. Take note of the information from the VP’s Academic and Pastoral , as well as Uniform Matters .
In conclusion, ‘The achievements of an organisation are the results of the combined effort of each individual.’, and, ‘In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit’.
I look forward meeting up with you on Saturday to personally thank you for your support and contributions throughout this year.
Abraham P. Swart
