Dear Parents and Friends,

I trust that this newsletter finds you in good spirits and in good health!

The Year 12 students started the IGCSE examinations this week Tuesday, the first part, to give an accounting of their six-year journey on the path of knowledge and application of knowledge whilst at JHC. The second part, of course will be in the form of the WAEC examinations to be sat later.

The virtual meeting held last week Saturday with parents of Year 12, 11 and 10 students was well attended, and I thank the parents for making the effort. More importantly, the contributions were relevant and appreciated. Here follows the essence of topics discussed:

  1. Safety & Security – This is a burning issue in our country and the Board, Management and staff are vigilant, ensuring that good practices are followed and cognisant that the situation remains fluid, thus the need to adapt accordingly.
  2. JAMB – It is recommended, as in the past, that parents register their children. However, the College will assist as far as practically possible. Furthermore, there were concerns that the JAMB examination schedule might run concurrent with the IGCSE exams. Notwithstanding, the College will address this matter should it happen and will be judicious to remain within the confines of professional and proprietary boundaries in doing this.
  3. Career Counselling – Student subject choices matter, as it determines career choices. JHC has arranged time to do this and Mr. Ikuyinminu and myself, qualified Career & Guidance counsellors, are leading this. The recurring concern is that a few parents attempt to force their children to select subjects which the students are unable to gain a pass mark due to a lack of ability, application and motivation, or a combination of these. Consequently, any student who underperforms over a period, in several examinations will not be registered (external examinations) for the respective examination – this is done in good conscience.

Be safe until we meet again.

Yours truly
Abraham. P. Swart
Principal
