Dear Parents and Friends,

I trust that all is well as we are about to resume for the second term.

However, we have been informed this morning that schools in Delta State, including James Hope College, may only resume on Sunday, 17th of January 2021. Yes, this is a week later than previously informed by the Delta State Government. This is most frustrating as I know that parents have been planning and preparing, and already spent monies on travel arrangements. I thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we are all at the behest of this dictatorial Covid-19 virus.

Importantly, our teachers will reach out shortly to all students to start the teaching & learning for this new term.

Furthermore, our Nurses are calling all parents currently to inquire about the health of our students. If they suffer from any flu-like conditions, then to seek medical intervention and provide a medical report with health clearance upon resumption. The latter is of extreme importance as it will only take one infected person to put all campus dwellers at risk. We have been doing great over the last term and I ask you to continue to show the same vigilance and support.

In conclusion, ‘The purpose of life is a life of purpose’; and ‘The only disability in life is a bad attitude.

Be safe until we meet again.

Yours truly,
Abraham. P. Swart
