Dear Parents and Friends,

We are living in challenging times and perhaps it is not the first time that you have heard this sentiment being expressed, or you might have even said this yourself. The economy not doing well, the pressure at the workplace, difficulties at home, and people trying to make sense of life – this is not only common to Nigeria, but it is a pattern all over the world!

At College, we attempt to inject some ‘normality’ and stick to tried and tested routines in terms of academic routines, social activities, etc. Furthermore, it is also with pride and a very wide smile that I can share that your children are doing themselves proud with the Novel Review
done at our assemblies. It is a round table sharing of lessons learned from the novels that students have been reading over the holiday break. Thus far we have had students representative from all year groups sharing their reflections. To say ‘WOW’ is an understatement in certain circumstances as the use of language, ability to describe in detail, depth of review, etc. has been phenomenal and exquisite. It is instances like these that make us proud to have these students here and as parents, you should be proud too.

IMPORTANT: As an enhanced measure to protect all campus dwellers in the Covid-19 pandemic era, the Board has decided that all students will need to have negative COVID-19 tests before the resumption of College with immediate effect, after every term break. This means that when students return for the start of the third term in April 2021, they will need a negative test. We are aware that this will add extra pressure to the finances, but it is necessary, and it will be reviewed regularly.

In conclusion, ‘The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.’
Stay healthy and safe until we meet again.

Yours truly,
Abraham. P. Swart
